HI & Welcome. [:)]

Sounds like a good purchase you've made. Are you wanting to make performance or visual modifications, or both? Depending on engine code, a re-map gives you the biggest performance increase to 190-200BHP on the earlier AGU cars to 220-230BHP on the later AUM cars. You'll also get improved boost from the turbo with this.

In terms of visual enhancements, pretty much everything has been tried. Best advice I'd suggest is to look through the Members Rides section and see if any ideas jump out at you. There are a lot of similar ideas shared around a lot on here, but that doesn't mean you have to just follow the crowd. [Y]

Above all - enjoy it!

Wigster.
