hey and welcome to the site.

what sie alloys are on it just now ? generally you can go 2" bigger without problems

exhaust, pretty much what takes your fancy, the gains are going to be negligible in difference on the 1.6 engine

at best youll be looking at a couple of bhp,
the only way your going to really notice a difference is if your current one is really dirty otherwise it will be a placebo effect that makes you think its giving you a bigger gain.
for example i went from standard, to uprated panel, modified airbox with uprated panel to BMC carbon airbox. total power gain using the diagnostic bout 4bhp. that was on a 1.8t
a good induction kit and cat back exhaust on yours you might see 5 or 6.
see your other thread for ways of getting nearer 20bhp

remember that if you put on larger wheels then your adding more unsprung weight which will effect your acceleration as well

I have Megane like you do. I recommend you to put 15" and tyres 195/50 R15 V. V is up to 240 km/H but that tyre is more resistant to damage made by constant start and stop driving in the city.
