    Remap to go stage 1 which will see around 300-310bhp
    Lower it 25mm on H&R springs
    Replace the ARB's with H&R to stiffen up the ride, improve handling and more or less get rid of the understeer.
    Panel filter uprated
    cat back exhaust

    After that I would invest in a clutch and replace standard flywheel as they are like chocolate

    After that then I would go stage 2

    Full system exhaust from Milltek, Blueflame or MV Sport for example
    Intake system from ITG, Evoms, Forge or Dbilas
    Stage 2 remap

    After that you can go stage 2+

    High pressure fuel pump - APR or Autotech
    Stage 2+ remap

    Another mod I would encourage anyone to do is install a Forge short shift kit. Expensive but I absolutely love it!! Makes the gearbox feel more manly lol

    Couldn't agree more, that will give you a seriously quick car, and at stage 2/2+ seriously think about investing in some real brakes.

    Do you need to uprate clutch when having s tronic or gearbox remap would be enough?

    You don't even need to remap the box but you may as well to get quicker changes.
