  1. Yesterday
  2. Not yet mate, still torn as to which ones to get to be honest!
  3. Sorry for the late late reply - had a week away up north and didn't realise I wouldn't have signal (doh!) Thanks for replies, I was kind of hoping (foolishly) it might have just been a couple of screws and clips - about as far as I'm comfortable with I guess i'll just have to save up and wait for a pair going on a breaking
  4. Nice, I've seen the civic Type R's and they're nice models. I test drove an 07 reg 2.2L civic and this car, was as fast as the Ibiza FR models. It's a good purchase and seen the price for type R Civics on Auto Trader. Cost less than the Leon FR models. Let us know what you've chosen too get
  5. Id say go for a Leon FR, Might be able to pick up one about 2 years old for £10 K. I've was keen on one when thinking about swapping to the Ibiza FR, last year. But couldn't afford the insurance on the Leon FR models (bigger car, high insurance group) Think my mind is set on either the FN2 type R or the Leon FR. Leon FR in good spec etc is a bit too much though for me. So probably the civic. Can get a 2009/2011 one with less than 30k for £8,000

  7. Have you ordered yours yet? and had them fitted to the Ibiza.
  8. The title and description don't seem to match at all for the small silver outline sticker 😂 I don't want to order one and be sent the wrong one 😂
  9. Thankyou very much sorry for late reply I haven't logged on a while
  10. Hi this morning I was driving my car and I noticed a wierd light flashing on the dashboard in the right hand side. After looking in the owners manual I found it was the ESP/TCS light. At first I thought it was just because it was a little damp and slippery out but my car is a base model Ibiza mk4 with steel wheels so I wouldn't think it had TCS or ESP. Could it possibly be a problem with the abs system. Btw it eventually wore off and stop doing it but I just wanna be sure there's not a safety issue. I attached a diagram and it's the dashboard light with 14 that keeps flashing.
  11. Last week
  12. I've lowered my fr on 35mm apex springs which didn't help the ride comfort at all, tempted to put original springs on On another note I'm thinking of selling mine if you're interested?

  17. I have H&R 25/40 on a diesel which weren't particularly expensive at around £120.. they are firm but to be honest I prefer that. Heres an idea of how mine sits Bare in mind there are two types of the same spring.. basically petrol vs diesel. H&R 29018-1 is up to 861kg (petrol) and H&R 29018-2 is above 861kg front axle load (diesel). 29018
  18. Hi, I purchased a (used)seat Ibiza 1.2 chill. Everything was fine but the door lock on the passenger side. It never opened, regardless when i tried to unlock it. So i took it to the garage and they tried to open up the door and break the lock in order to replace it. But now they seem to have failed to do so; so i have purchased a new door online. My question is this; i noticed on my car it didn't have any door knob pulls; just that red flashing light to show that the door is locked. The door i have purchased has the door knob pulls. So, is it possible to fit the door in with the door knob pulls? I was just thinking maybe it can't be done since it uses a different locking system? But I don't know anything about this stuff. I would really appreciate an answer and some guidance; i don't know much about cars myself. And just want to get this all done. p.s the replacement door i purchased is taken from a 2002 seat ibiza. I have also attached the image of the door with the knob pulls(The door I have bought), hopefully that will help in some way Kind Regards, Omii
  19. washed today and dried with wowo's quick detailer and day time pictures!
  20. Nice Waking up to this

    Has it perks when not in the garage over night
  21. Just a wash and a wax of mine and Mrs. 1.2FR and 1.4 FR. Look better without plates! Amazing the dirt and grime that builds up behind them
  22. having had classic mini's and a mini cooper s which was very firm. It feels like a cloud in comparison ! day to day i dont notice it just avoid potholes and bumps and its okay. When it comes to being able to open the throttle up though it feels perfect.
  23. I haven't done anything as such. But I have plans for this Wednesday and Thursday for the great British summer prep: decontaminate the paint, machine polish, wax and seal. Take wheels off and deep clean and seal. Let go of the car recently due to lack of time. Still cleaned once a week but desperately needs a polish and wax! Never used a machine polisher but went safe and got a DA think it's a DAS16 V2 from polished bliss Bring it on!!
  24. The lights didnt fit perfectly apparently and took the garage an extra 2h to do when he had the front bumper off, something to do the bottom holes not lining up and not having the right threads so he had to re thread them and cut some threads off the screws, no idea what he was on about but yeh these are made in taiwan and are the Junyan lights distributed by Autoartltd in the UK and they wernt machined correctly, so if you plan on fitting them yourself and you dont really know what your doing you might have a struggle or maybe it was just mine that wernt done correctly. Maybe someone else has had the same problem and can explain it better.. You can also use the motors from your original headlights which are the black boxes inside and wire up and screw in to the new ones which means the electric adjuster thing next to the light switch will work inside the car. The garage didnt do the motors as i think he forgot after the bumper was already re done up with the lights installed. Not really an issue as i never tow anything and doubt i ever will so i wont need to use the adjuster. Car will still pass the MOT perfectly which i have next month. They came with normal see through h1 low and h1 high beam and also the orange 581 py21w indicators Osram cool blue intense 4200k h1 in low and h1 in high beam and Osram diadem chrome indicators 581 py21w to get rid of that nasty yellow effect in all that silver. Doesnt look like that in the picture in real life as i think the flash was on the camera and made the light shine up Forgot to mention if you know what you are doing you can wire the daytime running LED lights to be permenantly on when the light switch is off but i didnt really want that.
  25. Yes its a easy mod, 2 hours tops to carry out the retrofit. Fitting the headlights is 30 min job including removing the bumper and reinstalling. Only major issue is getting the 2016 headlights as they are very hard to come by. Bought them both separately via eBay, but this took 6 months before I had matching set. Think I paid around £130 for the pair, and sold the old ones for £150 would you believe! So I pretty much broke even with the cost of few electrical bits (relay/wire)
  26. Sorry for **** quality but theres side lights and fogs
  27. No better way than spending your night laying on the road changing bulbs while your mrs mans the torch haha
