    if i was starting from scratch and car was in good mechanical order

    poly snub mount, sika/tigerseal filled gearbox mounts to stop excess movement

    lowering springs and shocks, improve the handling

    bigger alloys, looks and handling

    tt carrier brake conversion or fast road pads

    tt or forge 007 diverter valve

    chip, easy power increase for not much money

    looks wise just avoid a bodykit and you cant really go wrong with bigger o.e alloys

    Not had the pleasure myself, but everyone seems very keen on the MRC remaps.

    Depending on your ECU you may not be able to remap and may require a physical chip. The Superchips I got did exactly whaat is said on teh tin and I recorded an exact 30bhp increase

    I guess "remap" is one of those terms that gets a bit confusing. In my mind, a remap is the end result. Where as a chip or flash is the method used to do it. Either way you've altered the maps on the ECU, so you've remapped it.

    No 1.8T ECU can be flashed on the B5 afaik, they all need chipped.

    Thats not to say MRC cant do it mind, they did plenty of tuning on the old I5 engines, and they certainly couldnt be flashed.

    proper geometry set up and check all your front arms for worn bushes.
    tidies up the handling no end.
