      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,

Hello! Newbie alert!

Hello everyone! I've joined the forum because I'm hopefully getting a Seat Ibiza FR in June and I thought I'd have a lurk for a bit to see what people are saying about them and see if there's anything I should look out for? I'm an apprentice mechanic, so I have a fair amount of confidence when it comes to inspecting them, but it would be great if anyone has any pointers for areas to check? I currently own a little black Getz at the moment, but I've been saving for a new car for ages (and im nearly there!) so it's time to get an FR.

 

Thank you for your help in advance, see you around!

However i can say go for it you definitely won't be disappointed. 

I speak for myself and other people on here. We all love driving our cars because there so fun to drive and they look great too. 

I'm sure someone will be along to help you out with info on what to look out for.

Hi and welcome to the forum. I can't fault, the ibiza FRs, depends what your mainly after for Petrol models. 

The 1.2 TSI FR is the better petrol engines for everyday usage, and been out for many years. The 1.4 ACT TSI FR is better for those that need a bit more power and its eco friendly as it shuts down 2 of the 4 cylinders on slow speed driving to save fuel. 

There are Diesel versions too

1.4 TDI in the later models.  Also 1.6 TDI  and 2.0 TDI in the slightly older models. 

Never known of many faults with the ibiza FR.

Welcome to the forums! I don't own an FR so I don't have an input on that, but I agree with Ford160989 you won't be dissappointed, they look and drive great!

Thank you for your welcomes :) I am looking at either a 1.2 or a 1.4 TSI FR, depends what the prices are like, although it's easier to find a 1.2 ...my current car is a 1.1 with 61bhp...so going to a 1.2 with 104bhp will be a huge change as it is lol

I have the 1.2 tsi fr and believe me it's very surprising when you realise it's a 1.2 because it certainly doesn't behave like one. The engine is so responsive and it can move when you want it too.

Well...I've booked in to go and see a blue 1.2l TSI, 62 plate, 3 door Ibiza FR next weekend (if it doesn't sell before then) it's in Swindon, so a bit of a journey! I will let you all know if I get it :)

Hey did you get the FR? I also have the 1.2 TSI fr and I love mine. Agreed that it is surprisingly punchy for the engine size 😊
