    Nice car!

    Get some caps and spray them the same colour to hide the wheel nuts!

    Get it remapped ASAP. Transforms the car. Like an idiot I waited almost two years to do mine, which basically meant that I wasted the first two years of ownership.
    I can vouch for the superchips/bluefin remap, but revo and shark seem to be the most popular at the moment.
    I'd spend £500 on doing this before anything else because it's where the real enjoyment in these cars is.

    Somewhere between a 30-40bhp increase usually, so you'd be looking at about 230-240bhp for your car.

    If you go for the bluefin then they send you a handheld unit that you plug into your car. This stores your original map and loads the remap. Takes about 20mins and is very straight forward. You will then notice the difference in the car straight away.
    You've also got the option of plugging the unit back in at any time and switching between your original map and remap as many times as you want, for servicing and dealer visits.

    With REVO you have to visit one of their dealers to apply the remap.

    If there are any mobile Shark dealers operating in your area then they will visit you and do a similar process to the bluefin.

    There are other remappers too but you'd have to look into them for details, convenience, etc.
