    Yeah plans are to lower, re-map, get dpf removed, been quoted £530.00 to remove DPF Straight Through, Re-map potential 218bhp/427nm seems rather cheap tho but heard he's good ?

    lovely car man, thats a great base for modding.

    add some MY11 rear lights to your to do list, they will bring the rear up to date. NHN of here can supply them

    Not a fan of the chrome wing mirrors but each to his own

    218hp would be nice
