Depends on what your driving skills are you want to do with it, but driving it and getting to know it before dropping $$$ on more power upgrades is never going to be a bad idea. My opinion is that any Caterham can be more fun and car than 99% of drivers out there. Less HP, less tire. More HP, more tire. On the street, too much HP and tire can actually be less fun.

The car looks great in "normal" pix too!

 

My rebuilt Zetec's leaky rear main seal has earned it a respite from use this summer. I just got a can of Blue Devil "Rear Main Sealer" and will give that a shot before extracting the engine.

I also suggest just driving it for a while before making any drastic changes, especially with a car that looks as nice as this one. Street, track, autocross. Get some experience with it before doing mods, as you'd likely want different mods for each of those uses.
