      Club Shop Moved and Re-Opened   04/03/2017

      As we look to migrate the club over to Facebook the Club Shop has been re-opened at the following location:
      https://www.facebook.com/pg/ibizaoc/shop/
    • c3ptik

      We are migrating! IMPORTANT - Please read   08/07/2017

      Over the past couple of years we've seen an influx of productivity and engagement across our social networking platforms. So much so, that the social realm as you may know, is overtaking the likes of websites and forums. We have been number crunching and feel it is best that we go with the flow and embrace the social media world.
      We have decided to transfer the club over to our already hugely popular Facebook Page and Facebook Group. With over 14k members on our Facebook group alone there is even more engagement with other members from across the world. If you haven't already, now is the time to give our Page a Like and join the Group for discussions.
      The website will soon become a redirect to the Facebook Page and Group. If you have anything of importance posted on the forum, now would be a great time to grab it and post it on our group.

      A further message will be sent before the switch.

      Regards,
      The IOC Team

name/title; Chrome/Brushed/coloured trim.

what is it?; Trim round air vents/gear gater

cost; Depends on parts replaced or painted £10 up

how; the airvents in the center can be a right pain to remove but if you can loop a couple of bits of string roun them you can pop them out, the gear gater has a couple of clips under the "leather" that need to be pushed up at the back then you can lift it out. You can now A: sand,primer,paint like the s-badge or simply replace with the seat ones.

rating(1*ok to 5*great); The air vents are in view all the time when driving and this brightens up the dash no end 5* the handbrake ones are less important, you don't see them the same way, and if painting harder to do, 3
