There isnt a C 1.2 8v, only a 16v...?
Drilling airbox wont fail MOT, will help on the noise front, you could also think about removing your exhaust centre silencer will make the car much louder...

cut out the centre silencer and replace it with a straight pipe, also drill the airbox or cut a big hole in the bottom and replace the filter with a pipercross or k&n panel filter, thats about as loud as you cann get it other than takin the exhaust off completely.

ps it still aint that loud!
