First mods

Ok I'll admit wasn't going to take long for me to do some tuning,

What should I do first?

We bit of a styling tune, carbon bits? :-)

Or engine tune? Y pipes fitted so would look at intake pipes and map/gearbox map? Updated brake lines are ordered.

Absolutely essential to get the ypipe and at least stage 1 tune....definitely still the biggest single jump in performance terms and if you wait you will only kick yourself for not doing it sooner. Also must get the My11 GB software....soo much better to drive with it.

As Stevie said, y-pipe and Cobb NIS006. Have Ben at GTC do you a map to suit, and get that MY12 gearbox software installed which is available free with Cobb NIS006. Completely transforms the car for £1300 or so.
