Hey all.... I have recently acquired myself a rather tidy Ibiza Cupra Gti 16v that used to belong to a former member on here.

Some of you may know it some may not...

Got the car in a bit if a state really :( needed some tlc and some real love.

Came with Lowered Shocks and Spring and 17" Pro Race 1.2s and a Custom Exhaust thats a bit too loud.

Car had been unused for months and wouldn't run properly at all and had a nasty wobble on the front end and seems to be missing bits of trim and interior bits so the plan is to get it back up to how it used to be.

Have spent quite a bit of time under the bonnet and got it running properly by replacing buggered parts and give it a good service.

Need to give it a good clean and really feel as tho i'm starting to get somewhere with it now.

Fitted my BMC on it now... Just need a new Red adapter to match the rest of the under bonnet bits... oh and fitted new handbrake handle and Momo Wheel and really happy about how clean the car is inside and that it has no rust :D

Need to make it a bit quieter tho :D

List of bits to get...

Front fog surround N/S
Rear popout window bolt
Pair of front speaker covers
Passenger Seat Rubbers for Mounting points (to stop play in seat)

Removal of angel eyes on the front (anyone interested in them PM me)

Couple of Pics

I've been in too Veedubs since i was 15 and i'm in my very late 20's now :D so yeah it will be looked after...

As for a good price ... Yeah i swapped a Motorbike for it that i'd not used in 6 months so yeah bargain tbh :D

Good to see the car has came back to the site. :thumbup:. I really liked the car when Roelich had it. Any future plans for it?

Im sure Crezz is selling some of the speaker covers for the front mate, check the 'For Sale' section.

Reminds me I have to get those rubber things for the front seats.

Nice car mate looks smart, i remember looking at this a while back when i was on the lookout for a cupra, well done n getting it.
Any plans for it at the moment?
Not too many plans at the min as money is a bit tight. Want to get all the bits sorted that are Missing or small jobs and will take it from there really.

Could do with front wing re fitting as you can see its out when you look carefully and will need a couple if tyres soon and a new centre box to quieten it down a bit...

Would love some Samco Hoses on it and someone to buy me a Megs Buffer :D (hope the missus reads that bit) lol

Quite fancy the New Pro Race 3 alloys but thats going to be a while off tbh :(

theres loads, my tutor was roy downing.
Doesn't ring a bell tbh... One of em used to come into my work from time to time :)

Is there one Called Steve there as well???
