Help 147 upgrades

Hello folks,

Just wanted to get some advice really,

I have a 147 1.6 Turismo and wanted to do some upgrades on it.

Dont get too excited about this because I don't have a massive budget, just want to make some cheap alterations that would improve the ride.

Any suggestions big or small would be appreciated.

Really want to get some 'sport' or 'super sport' alloys, think that would be my first job.

Just the usual - Bigger wheels plus lowered suspension will transform the car

You can change just the springs but its not the best option.

Shocks and springs, your looking at atlease 500 including fitting etc.. but it is worth it, I have just changed mine to Koni FSD's and am very pleased..

i'm currently running on 17" Gta wheels with dunlop tyres, koni adjustable sport dampers and apex springs - 35mm and the car handles beautifully.. it's only cost me 1000 to do those bits fitted.. but if you start on the suspension its a good bet!

I first did the exhaust...straight through except the ugly cats!!!
Then I did the suspension, H&R 35mm, then I did the side indicators and two clover leaf stickers(they add about 5bhp each) then a month ago I did the GTA headlight conversion...take a look!!!

Next I'm looking at FSD's and wheels, 18" GT wheels then she's rounded off, but I'd like a bodykit as in the pics...take a look!!!
