    yep, and lower it with eibach springs and some bilstein dampers..that'll make it handle soooo much better....Plasma likes his conti sport contact 3's as they hold the road well..

    oh yes, and BSR remap all the way..

    stage 1 210 BHP
    stage 2 250 BHP..

    you know you want to... upgrade the brakes with the LMF 314mm kit and it's a real wolf in sheeps clothing..

    Wolf in sheep's clothing? - somebody call?!

    As above, BSR remap will give a healthy boost to performance, even the Stage 1. Stage 3 is simply stunning!!

    Irmscher or Eibach/Bilstein kit will give an improvement over even the SRi kit (not sure if it was SRi you had?). If you're going to run with a kit like that, you may want to consider 18" wheels - will give better handling, and ride, than the 18s.

    Brakes - whilst the 302mm are pretty good, the 314mm will make a noticeable difference. I'm glad I upgraded mine before the Stage 3!! lol

    As for other stuff, just subtle styling mods will make it look different, but still keep the WISC/sleeper look.

    Pic of mine in it's current guise....



    ...245 odd bhp (yet to be on a RR), Irmscher suspension and 314mm brakes - so goes somewhat quickly, handles well and, importantly, stops well! - yet doesn't look like it's all 'souped up',. Bit of a sleeper and I love it!!
