    When you say mod, do you mean big spoilers and under car neons, or get lots of horsepower or both? And when you say cheap how much are you looking to spend? A Corsa B with a Vec B 2.5 V6 lump in will be pretty rapid and can be done relatively cheaply.

    Sounds like a good plan! Is it the 150 cdti you have? From what I understand they're pretty tuneable!
