    Hi everyone,

    Last week I just bought a 6J ibiza Cupra!

    I drive a mini cooper with a K1100 BMW Cylinder head. That is just for fun and sunny days.

    My old "daily is an Audi a4 quattro 20.TFSI tuned to about 280 bhp

    That was way too thirsty for me to drive everyday to work. So I was looking for something else. I wanted a small fun car like my mini and something comfortable like the Audi but a bit kinder on fuel. I landed here!

    Here it is the day I bought it -

    Bought as a quick project from a dealer. The last one (who didn't have the car vey long) has done some very poor mods on the car (pictures of the wrapped straight through exhaust to come). I also removed 30kg of active subwoofers from under the parcel shelf.

    Jobs for now fit the new Milltek exhaust ordered and some other bits. I will try and make my own induction kit using the old air box.

    Anyway good to be here! and thanks for the help so far!

    So this is going to be a bit of a general tidy up. Some mods, some removal of mods and some restoration.

    I have set myself a tight budget on this car since it is supposed to save me money.

    So lets see what happens...

    Many parts have been hydrodipped, which I not generally a fan of, but it looks ok. The wing mirror caps were a bit tatty, so a quick rub down, clear coat, run down with several grades of wet and dray and three grades of compound and polish:

    After:

    There are some imperfections/damage in the hydro dip, but I can live with that.

    Exhaust!

    Believe it or not but the car currently has a straight through wrapped 3" exhaust: horrific

    Remember the part where this is a budget build.
    Current intake:

    So I have been looking at a cost effective induction kit. Doesn't seem too exist, but I feel I can improve the handy work of the last owner.
    I think using the original air box was a good idea poorly executed.

    Parts - [​IMG]

    I had to cut the bottom of the airbox, I think the sis ok as the air down there shouldn't bee too warm. I have an extra cold air feed that I will tray and squeeze in there.

    to be continued...
