Hi Everybody....

Thought i would post some pics of my freshly acquired Ibiza...
At the moment it has a magnex cat back system, Rolling on a set of lowering springs with aftermarket fox wheels..
Plans being Sort out the million & 1 stone chips scuffs scratches & chips, Induction kit & then look at remaping it for a bit more go then do something with the front brakes, either disks & pads or just pads.....
After that i have no idea :D


Had a few issues as someone had put a timing belt on it & made a complete horlicks of it so it wouldnt rev above 5k & generly pop'ed & banged & was either on or off when driving, couldnt sit & cruise on the motorway....
Other issues being that very few of the dash ilumination works etc but will get there...


Finally got round to washing it today & heres some pics... didnt have the digi cam so its just a few cam phone snaps.....

in the pic it had the bonnet sitting on the catch,
the morrettes have since been removed & replaced with standard lights,as although the morrettes look nice they are pants for light,
its also had the rims temporarlily removed & its currently rolling on 14" steels with rally tyres, just got round to fitting a pair of cibie turini lights in preperation for the road rally this weekend,

the top pics were taken when i first bought it back in 08,
it stayed that way till until about a year ago i swapped out the morrettes back to standard headlights, then when i moved down to wales about 4 months ago the alloys came of for the snow & the chunkys went on, then after more complaints about the lights being crap the BIG spotlights went on last night, top pic was last night on th elane to where i am staying just now......

relayed to the hilt, one big 40A relay for both sets of lights,
makes such a difference having the big lights on, can see where im going in the dark, need to tweak the mounting brackets a bit as they vibrate over the big bumps but other than that all good
