Potential performance gains?

Hi everyone
Noob here, so I've recently bought an A3 8P 2009 as my first car it has a 1.6L 4 cylinder petrol producing 102BHP , engine code AVU. My question is would it be worth putting money into the car for performance gains or am i just too limited by the hardware due to no turbo for anything significant? Other than a stage 1 tune how could I extract more power out of the car or would it be better to wait until my insurance goes down so i can afford a better setup to start modding?

Maximum you can get from.tweaking fueling is probably 5-10bhp as my civic type r ep3 was mapped by previous owner from 200 to 215 ( piontless)

For sure i would reccomend a turbod car for a first car anyway if your anything like me the road turn into a race track and **** can turn south quick not worth it as u tend to make stupid risks, weve all be there and done it and hopefully you wont.

Drive safe !
