You've got 154bhp, a 0-60 of 8.5 secs, and a top speed just short of 140mph

These are the factory specs. Tinkered with models may vary a little in their output. And age alters things as well.

Removing the CAT frees up some nice torque, and also gives better fuel consumption. And a free flowing backbox also helps a lot in the performance stakes.

A set of 17" alloys will enhance the looks hugely. Interior colour changes also make a big difference.
