Tuning / Upgrade advice

I have a 2.0 JTS 156 and I am looking to improve it a bit but I am not really sure what to look at and what to do.

I have already had a BMC CDA fitted and have also fitted a S/S exhaust from the cat back, think the middle box was removed as well to fit this. Apart from this car is factory standard. I am looking to improve power / driveability of the car. I have had a look at look at the online shops but as I have never done any tuning or modifying before I am not really sure what to go for. Budget is not great but I should be able to do things gradually. Any advice on what to go for / look at would be much appreciated. Thanks.

you could fit a sports cat, or decat pipe, along with a remap for more power.

shocks and springs, strut braces and eibach/gta roll bars are a good upgrade.

I'm wondering about doing the same as Danant, so can anyone recommend good places for shocks, wheels, etc. Is it easy to replace the shocks at home or should I be going to my local ( good ) garage? )

Use an independant unless you have axle stands and a lot of patience!
