    The biggest bang for your buck would be looking for a performance chip. Beyond that it gets quite expensive for very small gains.

    If you have high mileage then I do tell everyone to make sure that their car is fully serviced prior to remap and that it is functioning as it should, so worth having a FULL diagnostics performed also.
    If you selected the tuning options tab on my site you would find that the gains possible are 16bhp and 21Nm which isn't bad for a normally aspirated engine.
    Price wise, as you're a forum member and i'm doing a special until the new year it would cost £250 or if I come to you then it will be £250+fuel (to cover costs)
