    Copen, on an 08 plate and a motorbike.
    I have had my 2008 1.3 Copen for two years now and I could not imagine changing the car.
    The most fun I have had in years driving and to me it shows a direction that cars have moved away from. Where every car now is getting bigger, fatter... even my fathers new Alfa feels like a transit by comparison.
    Parking beside an Audi Q7 is almost comical.
    I have 89bhp. I would love to see how it would handle 105bhp.
    Nothing silly and I don't want to lose low down power for some fanciful figure at the red line.

    why 105 hp? I'd be happy with 100 or if just 10 hp extra.

    A little more pep?

    Why not use an exhaust cam and ECU from a Rally 2 or 4? You could finish this off with a 4 into 2 into 1 exhaust headers and free flowing system with high flow cat and a cold air intake with that lot you will do better than 10hp increase with as much as 7% + increase in midrange torque.
