    Which year/model are you looking to get?

    Ipswich way, you'd still have to travel, but TDi-plc in Thurrock, Dream in Bushey or TGM in Fleet.

    Power is intake, exhaust, exhaust manifold if you know your local MOT tester and a remap. You're still only looking at 20-25 bhp peak but it will have a lot more mid-range which to be honest is where you spend most of the time anyway. Depending on what options as brands vary wildly in prices and quality, that will be about 2-2.5k. 100 per bhp gain is what I used to work off going back 6 or so years ago, so probably a smidge more than that now, but not far off.
