    Haha. On a serious note, I'd definitely start with a Remap and DPF Removal, though I'd be careful with the DPF as I heard something not too long ago about possible MOT regulation for cars fitted with DPF??

    I'm more of an interior comforts guy myself though, by which you could look at the RNS-E Sat Nav, Bluetooth Kits, Multi-function Steering Wheels, LED Lighting Installs... theres a lot you can do ;)

    I think parking sensors are about £140 colour coded and fitted witha 5 year gaurantee. May sound alot but I bought cheap ebay sensors in the past and they are rubbish very sensitive going off when you're no where near anything here is his website

    welcome fella, i'm pretty sure at your level of tune the standard brakes are more than up to scratch so perhpas not much need of going bigger. start with pads - they make the biggest difference. if you want better discs then EBC make some good ones. That remap and DPF removal will sort you out though you'll be well impressed, is it software and a pipe? - the dpf removal?

    yeah i understand what you mean, really i dont want bigger discs, but drilled and grooved mainly for the looks haha, at the same time tho i dont want to get some cheap ones off of ebay! had a look at EBC might have to get a set, just abit upset they dont do drilled and grooved for my car :( lol as for the remap, i'm heading off to Custom Code (think thats what they were called) but not sure what they are doing with the dpf, they said their removing the DPF so i'm not really sure what they do, if the DPF is removed is that like having a DE-cat? or is that a separate job again?

    a de cat would free it up a bit and you would see a slight gain in power yeah. can be done in conjunction with a 3" downpipe (from the turbo) and perhaps a full cat back system cos then you'd have a full exhaust system done. can work out to be a bit pricey though but depends what you had in mind for the car and what you want out of it
