    No. You've just got the biggest gain for the cheapest cost. Don't chase this one as it only gets silly expensive. You could go for an air filter change. exhaust etc but you'll only get couple bhp increase at the wheels overall. Just enjoy the tuning box or else you'll end up spending crazy amounts. If you want faster, buy something fast!
    Have a caterham or bike engined car or something similar in the garage for those bored days.

    You also have the pleasure of seeing yourself doing 40mpg + on the road when others at the same speed are doing less than 20mpg.

    My evo 6's did about 15-20mpg at 70-80mph due to the high state of tune. They were revving at 4k+ rpm at motorway speeds.

    put some nice bits and pieces on it. Colour coded grille, wheels, suspension, brakes etc. It's ok for a car to go fast but not good if it won't stop quickly too. Can't beat decent brakes. Also decent suspension will help make the extra speed more useable and they look better lowered a bit.
    Oh, how about some undercar neons??? LOL

    ps, joking about the neons.

    Looks nice What wheels are those?

    You could go for LMF's 314mm upgrade or spend silly money on 6 pots!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
