    I'm not sure how much you've got to spend on your motor but what about a nice set of alloys, rear back box, interior, coilovers etc etc
    Well mate I am looking at 500 to spend initially, so along with remap ill have around 250-300 left for other bits and pieces!! Just been looking and going to remove the EGR valve and clean that up and replace the oil breather too :-)

    Sounds like a plan imo theres been top advice offered to you so far and the only thing I can add is do all the engine/servicing work
    prior to remapping that way you'll be safe in the knowledge that everything is in top condition before the remappers work their magic.

    Hope you continue to post up your mods and upgrades for all to see

    Actually there is another upgrade that it worth doing and that is a bigger intercooler from Allard motorsport and it comes with slimline fans. But that would nearly take all your budget, just something for you or other to think about for the future.
    My contact details are on my signature if you want to contact myself.

    A remap would make the largest difference, circa 50bhp+, any the next big tuning mod would be a diesel decat.

    The decat sections cost approx 180 i think, although you may get a local exhaust place to make one up cheaper.
    The EGRs can be at least partially blocked off, and in some cases completely blocked off, but there is the odd chance of the ECU spotting it and flagging up an error code.

    Have a look on ebay, as there can be EGR removal kits that keep everything happy.
    It'll be pushing your budget maybe, but there is no need to do everything at once.

    One at a time, and then move on to the next when you get used to the power will keep it being fun.

    Thanks for all the advice so far! Certainly given me food for thought!!

    Found a guy on eBay selling the breather filter kit so thinking about purchasing that and next weekend getting the EGR cleaned up and breather changed as per L16YDL's guides!

    Its gonna be my first attempt at anything under the bonnet so fingers crossed all goes well!

    Just don't drop any nuts and bolts, and you'll be fine they have an amazing ability to disappear into the engine bay if you do

    Can get magnetic pic up tools that are great at retrieving stray bolts, basically a magnet on a telescopic shaft.

    Cheers there 18inch MV2 style wheels
