Hello all, I'm a proper newbie, have owned a 1997 325tds saloon for a couple of years now, its a little tatty (which I aim to address), but generally solid.
I was looking to improve its performance and handling without making too many obvious external changes, but haven't a clue where to start, plus to complicate things I'm on a budget and will have to upgrade bit by bit.
I've been told by various people to undertake various of the following, but as a non-mechanic and someone totally new to "modding" I would appreciate all and any advice you may have for me.
Install a panel air filter
Install a plug and play ecu
Look into exhaust options
Fit a front anti-roll bar
Fit sportier shocks
Uprate my front brakes to sport versions
Fit 16" wheels and wider, lower profile rubber (currently on standard 15" rims)
Really haven't got a clue and could use all the helpful advice you can muster... and remember - its a diesel!
Also my fabric front seats are knackered, anyone know where I can get some subtle but sportier versions without breaking the bank?!
