    if its a p reg then you may want to post this in the 8L section as this is the 8p which is the newer shape! but performance wise, your probably best off getting a decent air filter, full exhaust, maybe some new cams, or lower it, fit a lightweight set of allows, anti roll bar and make it handle like a dream!

    as above, go for handling as you won't get much from a 1.6 N/A petrol without spending a bomb. at least if you concentrate on the handling then you'll keep up some faster cars round the twisties. :)
