Hi fellow North West people...!

I have posted a thread like this before but cannot find it so I thought I would post this in here rather than on the general forum.

I'm trying to get the car in tip top shape and I am going to be doing a lot of work on it over the Christmas holidays.

At the moment this is how the car is...

Japspeed Radiator
HKS Adjustable Actuator (0.7 bar I think at the moment)
Greddy Profec B S2 Boost Controller
Apexi SAFC 2
Braided Oil, Water and Brake Lines
FMIC
Pod Filter
Cat Back (everything before the Cat is stock)
Tein Superstreet Coilovers
HICAS is locked out

Over the Christmas holidays I am also going to respray the car if I can and clean up and respray the engine bay. I bought a compressor and paint gun... Also I am going to get rid of the transformers bonnet for something lighter and less garish!!!

I am looking for some other ideas on things to upgrade. I would like to replace all the old stock parts over time if I can do.

If anyone can provide me with some ideas on what would be best to upgrade next it would be good :)

Downpipe and exhaust (have both of mine for sale) - not forcing this stuff on you mate lol but if its stock it will be restrictive and make running a pod\fmic a little pointless then I would go;

braided clutch line as your doing everything else
ECU \ remap and go for 0.8 bar

brakes are down to usage - if your fast road only then keep it stock calipers \ size but get some decent pads \ fluid \ braided lines - if you want track days or such then get some GTR brembos on the front as the standard setup will let you down

My brakes do seem a bit poop to be honest, wouldnt mind upgrading those at some point.

I was looking at downpipe, there are some Japspeed ones on Ebay for £80 (the split flow ones).
