Hey all, Just thought I'd say hi.
Bought a 59 plate silver type s 2.2 cdti 2 weeks ago and whilst researching mods this forum has always come up with the answers so thought I better join :D.

My plan so far...

First handling, I've noticed some serious body roll going round long corners at speed, eg motorway junctions ~70mph, half way around the corner the weight feels like it shifts and destabilizes the car. Ironically some of this is down to VSA, but even with it turned off it still happens. So an Eibach pro kit (e10-40-011-02-22) and Greenstuff break pads are going to be my first purchase.

Power, it looks like a front mount intercooler coupled with a custom remap offers the best bang for buck. I'm unsure if i'll actually go with an Intercooler, I might just go with a remap and see, I've seen a few kits arround so ill defer that decision untill closer the time. As far as remapping goes angeltuning seem to be a good one, I believe they do custom maps and offer a package which includes a performance filter for £310.

Anyway, thats where I'm at :D

I like knowing i can go fast if i want, but dont actually drive that fast, strangely enough. I'm hoping if i dont push it too far and I dont change my driving style the factory one will last. But yeee, its something I better keep in mind for sure :S. Aiming for the 200bhp mark, so fingers crossed :).

Welcome to the forum mate, now your first mod should be a Civinfo sticker ;) then fog light protectors from Wanner69. And for detailing and getting paint sorted Wanner again is your man and he is local to you.
