    hello mr_lean & stupid

    to make that car faster take the engine out and put a better one in.

    Other than that the 1.4 8v is a waste of time IMHO

    i think you should tell your insurance about all your mods...

    If not then it could be you that would end up making me thousands worse off if i happen to get into an accident.

    Hello,

    Welcome to the site mate.

    If I were you I would do what I have actually done... I got a 1.6 16v LS, it's quite nippy, looks nice and it's insurance group 5. On the other hand, as this is your first year as a driver... you'll get ripped off by the insurance anyway... so you might as well get something tiny.

    As of declaring the mods... first learn to drive and then start moding, did you run before you crawled? Statistics claim that this first year you'll have the most chances to be involved in an accident, concentrate to fault that!

    Ciao,
    Kakourdos
