firstly welcome, i aint seen you knocking around i dont think anyway! lol!
when it comes to modifying it a big matter of how much you want to spend, after all with enough money nearly anythings possible, but sensible places to start is, exhaust, air filters, cooler air, bigger brakes, better suspension, better plugs. not in that order though ive always done brakes 1st
then you start looking at remaps, turbos, nitrous. think of it as a project and concentrate on one bit at a time.
hope it helps

I was interested in going to some car shows but didnt know where to go, spoke to Jared and told me to Sign up to forum and gave me a heads up for USC.

On the modifing from i would know where to start it would really help meeting up with someone that can explain/help me. In past ive just gone on styling due to me thinking i can get much more performance out of it.

Could u put a llink up? Not sure I've gues of them, any air filter is an improvment on standard power output, however more power can be gained from the correct aftermarket unit, think of k and n as the bar that all filters are measured by, there not bad but u can get better, think that there is a massive aftermarket demand for pug performance parts, there is a company in rotherham called pug performance, they might be werth calling in a speeking to,
Cold air has more oxygen in it and burns quiker in your engine making the car a faster, so if u have an air filter in your engine bay that's only getting warm air it will actually slow the car down, so a direct cold air feed is imperative, nip the morisons and slowly to tank, I've tought him a lot so he should be able to help out alien

if im honest they just look the same as any cheepy air filter, youd be better of goin to jtf and buying one from there car section and doing a bit of diy to get it to fit, but you'll have to b carfull with your air flow meter and temp sensor, should be easy enough though, as for a location for pug performance, i don't know, they moved twice in the past 5 years and its been a while since i had any intrest in anything french (no harm intended lol) try looking them up on google etc
