Hi and welcome to the forum.

If the previous owner's address isn't on the logbook, go on to the DVLA site and request a list of previous owners.

Howdo. Only sure way to find out if it's been tuned is to stick it on a rolling road.

Is this your first hot hatch? I'm not meaning to talk down to you but if you've not driven something like the 180, or clio 182, they can feel very fast especially when the vvt kicks in at high revs.

Cheers

Cheers yugguy , I was thinkin that buddy, no m8 haven't had the pleasure of driving the 182 as is it seems to be a very quick car, I used to own a Saab 2lt turbo that was fairly quick that had 185 bhp and more than enough torque , but anyway back to the point lol yeah I'm sure there are some things I could do to find out but would be great to find an old owner on a site like this and hear from the horses mouth about any mods / timing belt ect....thanks everyone for the replys
