I had the chance last week to do some extensive high load testing of the car, and came up with some of the following findings.
Lack of linearity in the power delivery
I was getting a slightly flat/surge power delivery at times depending on what under bonnet temps the car was running at. After...
Looking for anyone in the north east of England with a VAG-COM system who would be willing to take a look at my car :D!

I current have a set of BBS CH19" on my Platinum grey LCR, they are powder coated Black and a B$tch to keep clean, so i have decided to get them refurbed and change the colour at the same time.
I am thinking of either the standard BBS silver finish or some sort of...
I have recently changed my green cotton panel filter for an open cone and it's now blowing off at the slightest throttle above 2k revs. I am slowly winding it in stiffer so it doesn't flutter so often. No faults or anything come up on the dash yet (touch wood). I think I might need a stiffer...
I'm interested in getting some coilovers for my LCR and I'm keen to know how many owners have fitted coilovers and which 'brand' did you go for?
Did you need to fit shorter arb links too? Any info would be great!
Can you help?
I have an 04 TDI Leon Cupra and since buying the car i've never been impressed with the brakes. I've just upgraded to 2500's and 312mm discs. Trouble is im still not that impressed.
When I pump the pedal (engine running) it's goes stiff briefly but when my...
I found out this morning that i have a split hose :cry: Its the hose that comes out the radiator and into the water pump. Now can anyone that owns a abf tell me dose there hose that comes out the water pump go across the back of the rad into the passenger side of the rad with a 90degree bend at...

Afternoon all would really appreciate your thoughts,comments,experiences.
If you are a Mk4 Ibiza owner I would really appreciate your input.I have tried a search but could not really find anything applicable.
Im thinking my Cupra would be almost perfect with the right suspension setup...
As per my other thread I went to part ex my FR against a Cupra that has Revo stage 1 today. When I test drove it there was an alarming lack of traction. I put it down to the near the limit budget tyres that were on the front.
Road condition were dry (maybe a tocuh greasy), but it spun up...
I currently own a 2.0 8v which im very happy with.
Im pondering replacing it with a 16v and was wondering what owners think about the 16v, ie are there any particular faults with the 16v to be aware of, or anything in particular to look out for.
Also, what kind of mpg do you...
Get my 1st year no claims on the Ibiza in jan, knew it was wishful thinking but rang direct line just to get them to have a look at prices for a 8v + 16v, 1.8 + 2.0.
Turns out they wont let me on any variant until im 21.
confused.com usually just spews out...
I just popped down my local car audio centre and asked for a aerial adapter for my new head unit
He said all VAG cars need a special adapter to enable the amplifier in the areial otherwise, the amp in the aerial wont switch on and i'll get poo signal, and only pick up radio 1 etc...

Do you have springs changed and any other ARB/ Strutt brace or bushing changes?
Thanks for your input
