    Exhaust.

    If you've got a DPF get a cat-back system, if you don't have a DPF then get a sports cat too

    IIRC it's the automatics, hatchbacks and estates that have DPFs fitted...

    A cat-back system will set you back £350-£400, no massive gains in power but makes a noticeable difference to driveability. If you want a sports cat add an extra £150 or so, but you should get even more noticeable gains.

    I doubt anyone would post one out TBH, they're usually made to fit individually. If you can't find anywhere, you could go halfway and buy an off-the-shelf system but I wouldn't waste my money.

    The only way to tell about DPF by looking is to get under the car and look at the cat... A standard cat has 1 wire in each end (for lambda sensors I think) but a DPF has about half a dozen wires and sensors protruding...

    Edit: Here's one in Co. Antrim... Sounds possible that they may do stainless steel systems...

    You could just de-cat it being a deisel as there is no emissions tests on them, just a smoke test. Again there won't be any big gains, but a worth while mod.
