Hi David,
Welcome to the forum.
Easy mods - Change your front and side indicator lenses to clear ones with amber bulbs.
LED numberplate bulbs (38mm festoon).
Clear rear fog light conversion (european lens with red bulb - 5 minute job)
Gel badge overlays from DMB Graphics.
Lockwood door sills.
Just little touches but will make the car your own.
Wheel size? not my area of expertise i'm afraid.
There are plenty here that will be able to advise you much better than i could.
bigdave1986
thanks clive will have a look into them are they mods i will be able to do myself easily?
Stoney871

He's not joking about being nosey ... I found stoney lurking in my kitchen last night dressed like burglar bill.

Be cautious of him he was trying to spy on my future modding plans :)

double entendre from Stoney me wonders... :P

BigDave, are you looking to make it look pretty, or go quickly!
artscot79
alloys maximum without issues is 18 which i think look a bit big 17s look better but youll need to lower it a bit .
you can fit the st airbox and intake with almost no mucking around

scrap yards are a god send for the mk1 as you will find easy upgrades frod the ghia simple stuff i have the gear knob from the mk2 2.5 that fits and adds a nice touch simply screws on

you can shorten the stock ariel as well try focus hacks for a list

Thanks a lot will have a look for some 17's how much do u think I will need to lower it? And jeebo I'm looking to make it look pretty coz since its my first car and its a 2 litre its gonna cost me enough on the insurance as it is lol any other ideas other than what stoney came up with. Stoney I've bought a few of the bits once they arrive and have fit them will upload some more pics thanks

to be honest mate, you dont want to do anything too extensive to attract attention, I would say go with little mods, rather than resrpaying the whole car in a union jack! little, but sweet mods like the fourth brake light behind the badge, and LED's inside to give a bit of ambience.

Other than that, look for the likes of a chrome grill, and up the wheels. Do enough to make it look a little sharper, but not enough to concern your insurers!
