    Agreed in principle to buy...

    This.

    Anyone know anything of it? Is the owner a member here? How easy is it to remove the stage one Regalsport upgrade?

    Welcome to AOC!

    Not sure if it is a members or not, i have not seen it before.

    just out of interest why would you want to remove the Phase 1 upgrade?

    I'm a little cautious about performance upgrades. It'd cost me too much to declare as I'm only 21 and don't know what effects the higher performance has on the rest of the car. Is it healthy? Do you think I should leave it on? Anything I should check for when picking the car up?

    Performance upgrades are perfectly safe when done by reputable companies such as Regal, but the choice is yours as to if you remove them, as you said they will obvioulsy increase your insurance premium for the pleasure as well

    I'm not that bothered about the insurance, was just trying to come across as level-headed. More concerned about the prospect of blowing the engine up

    Phase 1 is a very mild tickle on the engine. Wont cause any mechanical problems whatsoever, provided you maintain/service the car/engine as per manufacturer guidelines.

    To reverse ph1 you'd need to replace the plugs/filter and then have the standard map put back on, Regal could do this, it's possible that your local vx dealers could do that too.

    You'd also need to declare the alloys and the springs.
