Hey so i recently got my first car, a 2011 Ford Mondeo Zetec TDCI Hatch. I was curious as to where and how i can find performance mods that will fit with the car. Wheels and tires I understand but I'm mostly in need of help of understanding what types of mods i can look for.

I don't intend to do any challenging mods myself.

Here's the car if it interests anyone: https://imgur.com/a/tZdJ9XD

New to all this stuff so any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Depending on insurance a quality remap, always a good start on diesels.

Remap with a rolling road?   After that it starts to get expensive or pointless mods

that may lose power rather than create it.

 

Modern cars are fairly efficient and engines built to tight tolerances. You dont get a large

spoon of swarf out of the engine after its first 1000 mile service.

 

Lots of cars already have cold feeds so usually a waste of time making another one, cone

filters can suck hot air from around the engine losing power.

 

 

At least you didn't get a Friday afternoon car with the wheel on the wrong side.  :)

You haven't mentioned which engine you have.

There were four different Diesel engines fitted to Mk4 Mondeo.

Suspension is a good mod depending on what your after, I used koni fsd before they were great good control without being harsh. Koni have an new generation for these now call. Special Active,but make them for the rear. You know because we have any front suspension 🤣. So find something else now, cold air intakes on diesel are a waste of time, you won't get much use out of them just sound, would recommend a good new panel filter, KN passable. Paper elements are just as effective these days

How do I check?

 

Edit:

Vin Lookups suggest that it is the 2.0L Duratorq DOHC(150/163PS)-DW10C. I assume this is the 120kw engine correct?
