    Hi mate, I think the de-cat will bring on the light but normally this can be removed by tech2 not 100% on this as I know map's are sometimes used.

    As for mods its really what you want. You could get a panel filter, brake cooling ducts and the likes of Insignia washer jets. Those are fairly cheap but if you have a bit more to spend take a look at Courtenay Sport, Regal, Thorney Motorsport and MPG.

    Hope this helps a lil mate

          has james has said, it souldnt bring on the light, with the coilovers mate, you pay for what you get. 200 quid coilovers will have a really hard ride and not be that good.

          kw, ast are the top of the ladder when it comes to coilover. but they come at a price, if you can push the budgit out abit then waitec coilovers are good as they are made by kw.

          theres afew people running the ap coilovers and say they are really good for the money
