the sticky at the top of this forum, would be ur best bet.

A good guide to modifing most cars is;

An advanced driving course, get the most out of ur car, and be safer at the same time.
Proper maitnence, make sure aspects of the motor, trans, diff, and suspension are all in good nic, so stuff wont break when you push them, then start upping the performance aspects of the car.

good mods are dba's, and good suspension, no point having a fast car that cant stop or get out of a "tight spot". then just follow the sticky for the "go fast" bits.

sadly there is no real cheap way of getting performance. $$$$ is the only way to get there.

hope it helps
Rushed

As a man who has to put up with peak-hour traffic on the M1 after work I'd swear by my effortless auto. Recently serviced she goes through the gears nicely without making any worrysome noises.

Well there is the traffic and the tools who block up the right hand lane.

Today there were two cars (both female drivers) going about 95km/h in the right hand lane and there was room in the middle and left hand lane. The Commodore behind me (both in right hand lane) merged left and took over both of us. But I went on to force the two (by sitting a wee bit close on their bums) into the middle lane. I'm like an enforcer of sorts, I just can't stand people using that lane for what it is not. It is the over-taking lane.

Lol, I know it's dangerous driving, but people generally know that lane is for over-taking so that should be what it's used for. If I get in the over-taking lane, I want to over-take, not get caught behind some clueless fool who is in the WRONG lane.

And thanks, I came up with that just yesterday, lol. Inspired by the shocking fact that I do actually see some people with Toyota Avalons getting big wheels and all that, actually trying to make one of the worst looking cars ever, look good.
