I am only 15 but its a project car that will be driven by my mum/dad nearly every day

None of them will do anything for the price.

Get a good panel filter and drill your airbox. Gives people a suprise when you open your bonnet and people expect a filter lol

Nice project mate. You have a nice base for a potentially nice car there. I would suggest loads but only being 15 might be a bit much.

Best of luck with the car

Sounds like some good plans, some very similar ideas to what i want to do with mine like DIY depos, should be doing them the next sunny day as well as adding my opel badges.

On the induction kit front, you do not want to go down that route, i had an induction kit on my 1.0 12v, it blows the AFM and causes your car to bog down and lose power (what little it has anyway, lol) while travelling at about 70-80mph while in 5th gear, also the EML light comes on and usually you have to stop the engine to get it turn off, this really pissed me off after a while so i took it off, did have a nice roar to it though - was a pipercross one.

Look forward to seeing this grow
