Hi just a quick photo of my car of how I bought it. I'm looking to modify it but nothing to over the top. I think I want to turn it in to a 182 replica. Just wondering what you guys would do and possibly how to make it run a little quicker. Cheers.

Hello and Welcome to TorqueCars.:bigsmile:
Hope you enjoy your time with us.

To be honest buddy you'll gain next to nothing with a 1.2 in terms of power unless you have deep pockets that is.
I'd concentrate on suspension and get it handling like a 182.
You don't need loads of power to be quick in the twisties. ;)

Yh not far away at all. I dont mind about the budget because i can always save up and buy a quality set than a cheap and nasty set and have to keep paying out to get a new some new ones. Do you know of any good websites or shops to get them from?
