      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

Peronally, I don't like any form of 'sticky out' splitter on a prefacelift, cos of the shape of the lower valance. Its curved at the bottom which means the splitter doesn't look right, no matter if its a LCR or this new style.

Agree with Ant but if you like it go for it, a new bumper is not cheap if your on a budget it's a fun cheap(er ish!) mod you can take off and sell on if you do not like.

Only just got around to doing this Nickk!

Name/Title: Red stitched gear surround.

What is it: Red stitched gear gaitor, to match the cupra handbrake cover.

How:

1)Remove the gear knob, the surrounding plastics and gaitor.

2)Separate the gaitor from the plastics and knob.

3)Put the new gaitor on, then reattach the knob and plastics.

4)Fix it back into the car.

The hardest bit is taking the plastics off and putting them back on, very fidley :P

Cost: The gaitor was £11 off eBay, you'll also need a small jubilee clip to put the knob back on if it's the first time you've taken it off.

Rating(1-5): I'd say combined with the other cupra bits it's a nice cheap 3*

Pictures:

As you can see it matches the handbrake nicely

iPhone/ iPod aux control.

Let's you pause, skip forwards and skip backwards without playing with your iPhone/iPod and crashing!

Might also allow you to answer phone hands free and hear caller over the cars speakers.

1) Get a pair of standard iPhone headphones. ( The ones with little controller.)

2) Get a 3.5mm jack. £1.99 from Maplin.

3) Cut of headphone buds and solder headphone wires onto jack and boom your done.

Your car will have to have aux input or this to work. Makes sense for me cus I don't want to loose me seating wheel controls.

Not tried this yet but I'm going to give it a go in the next few days. Will get a few pics up when I'm done.

But you still have to fiddle, just make a playlist of all your favourites on your ipod..leave your ipod face up on the centre concole, and just push skip?

Replacing standard panel filter with thinner 'Green' filter

How;

Bought mine off a company called Badger5

£40 IIRC

Rating(1*ok to 5*great);

3* Not sure how much of a difference this will make to the lower powered Ibiza's, probably added 1-2 bhp (if that) to mine! If you want to make it louder, you can also drill holes into your airbox

Also i ment to add when you have sprayed your side repeaters if you f**k up and spray them too dark (like i did first time looked likei coloured them in with permanent marker) you can just use nail varfnish remover to take it all off, then wipe them clean with a wet cloth, then dry them, then respray. Best to spray in light coats rather than one heavy coat.

(ill upload a phototoo as soon as someone tells me how).

Name/title;

Stickerbombing! (Can't believe this hasn't been covered yet!)

What is it?;

Covering anything you can get your hands on with colourful stickers.

How;

Buy stickers, use stickerbombing sheets, get them free with magazines and slap 'em on!

Cost;

Anywhere between the cost of Fast Car magazine (they ALWAYS put stickers out, and it's £3.50 I think - I subscribe anyway) to £5 per sticker, depending on what you want. Maybe less if you want stickers that will wear away/fade more quickly.

Rating(1*ok to 5*great);

4-5* - Can't have enough stickers EVER.

My stereo surround, courtesy of a Fast Car mag stickerbombing sheet (with scene-friendly air freshener bunch to boot):
