    yea ... i would

    all ive done to mine so far it intake stuff .. and lowered it

    i dont think i'll do much more tbh

    external mods to be done..

    xenon s
    bonnet extension

    then i'll leave for a while n see what happens .. i.e if the right engine comes up for sale for the right price

    or a T8

    or maybe a gsi

    then ill go for some more serious engine mods

    i just dont think its worth it at the moment for my 1.8

    i've done the usual- airbox intake mod, k&n filter and s/s exhaust. don't see the point on doing much more as she's only a 1.6 16v.

    it has helped driving performance quite a lot though.
