Recommended mods for 2002 1.8?

Hey astina gt guys, recently a bought a 2002 astina, great car and a little bit of pep for the size of the engine. Anyways what mods would you recommend for the car? Visual, performance, handling, whatever just your favorite mod you've done or cheap ones.

Hey mate, welcome,

Best mods is suspension, coilovers, strut bars,

Unfortunately unless your happy to drop 2k on an ECU and a tune as far as power goes there realy isn’t much more you can to to get
More power,

But these cars half there ground very very well in the handling department, and with the right suspension set up you will keep up with a some cars you wouldn’t expect, nor will they hahha.

What have you done to yours ??
Whats your plans with it ??
Pretty

Hey, I think we talked on facebook the other day about KLZE swaps haha. So far on my car I've just done service items and a stereo, I only bought the thing earlier this year, I'm planning on getting 215 wide tyres for it though the tyres on their right now are buggered.

Oh and I am planning on getting a strut bar probably just a stock sp20 one but I can't find any listings for written off sp20s near me and I don't want to pay the wreckers an entry fee just to see if they have one.
