Lowering it and putting alloys on makes it look so much better! Plus the grip is improved with the wider alloys and the handling is improved with the suspension

Just get something like the gmax suspension kit for 200ish... and get some 2nd hand nice alloys...

If it was me, get a decent suspension set up eg, Bilstein, and upgrade your brakes eg, 284mm discs.

As your engine is only a 1.2, your not going to win any races in a straight line, but round the bends you will!

Get a nice set of antracite 16"s, slammed 70mm on Koni adjustables and a 5" slash cut zaust.

Mental looks, wicked handling and sound of a scooby.

Heres a diff recomendation, if u value looks more than engine mods (which u have to with a 1.2!) may as well get it fully colour coded, a front splitter, alloys and lowerin springs, if ur patient im sure u could find the latter 2 second hand and have money left over ? Then at least it loooks the part and not for much, some skirts maybe, patients is the secret to bargains my friend.........
