Bought my car a few days ago and thanks to some of the members here I have been finding out a little more about it.
Gave it a good clean today:
I am after a bit more from the 1.9 though power wise. I can see a lot of recommendations begin with a remap which I will get round to when I have some spare cash to throw at it as I want it done properly. Are there any recommendations on air filters? Is it worth the money to buy a k&n panel filter and replace the standard one or does the difference between the two not warrant it? I’m not looking to put an exhaust on it but I wouldn’t mind a growl when I put my foot down so would that be an induction kit or whole new air intake system?
Also, the callipers need painting. At first I thought keep with standard black but now I’m leaning towards painting them red. Something about red and grey that go together well.
I know 99% of the people on the board will disagree with me on this but I have decided to keep the wing mirrors silver for two reasons:
1. I can’t find any dolphin grey wing mirrors on eBay
2. After looking at the car from the front I can see why the last owner went with silver, it does match with the grill nicely:
