So I just got the 307 1.6 16v and I looked at the remap and it was about £300 for 9% gain, so my point is, should I even bother to do any performance mods for such little gains?

I know the remap is just one part of it as things like downpipe and better cooling will help but I was just hoping to try and get a bit faster and better mpg since I am going to be doing 200 miles a week.

I had a 1.6 16v diesel and the mpg was high 50's which I thought was pretty decent. I was doing600 miles a week at the time. As for more speed, the car as it is can already exceed the speed limits and reach the 100mph mark so more speed isn't necessarily required.

A remap may give better torque and acceleration which could get the engine to it's most economical range quicker than the stock map though. You would need to do a whole lot of miles for any saving in fuel to pay for the cost of the remap. Even 10mpg increase only equates to a couple of pence per mile saving. At 2p per mile cheaper it would need 50 miles to save £1. If the remap cost £300 then it would take 15,000 miles just to recoup the initial outlay.

The 1.6 petrol engine is horrible in terms of tuning potential and your economy will only get worse even peugeot/citroen struggled with it the most powerful one only making 125hp standard in the VTS C2

If your doing big miles sell it and buy a diesel
