Theres a few places who can remap these now. Youll get around 15bhp for 200 quid and they will come to you. Not bad value me thinks. I love my 160 got a decat straight through scorpion exhaust on and k & n apollo induction kit. Sounds mental and destroys type rs etc when vvc kicks in in 4th. Top speed 142mph. Mad acceleration! Just like a turbo without the whistle. I was going to buy a clio 182 but ive raced a few and left them for dead. Vauxhall Astra VXR i think next, but i gotta kill the 160 yet lol.

I've got me one of these babies too and i can say for sure it is quicker than a BMW 5 series and an MR2 but slower than a Clio 172 or BMW E30 after taking it around Oulton Park.
Great fun cars the 160's :)
