    Ok, a bit of history first.
    I had a 51' Nissan Almera 1.8SE that I got in 2004 and then in june this year I got myself a 96' Toyota Starlet Glanza V Turbo, with the intension of selling the Almera. But the Almera took time to sell, so I ended up putting them both op for sale at the same time as I couldn't afford to keep both. And as sods law goes they both sold within a day of each other and left me without a car :doh:.
    So I borrowed my grandads little micra while I got some funds sorted out to get another car. After much searching I decided I wanted a mk4 Ibiza FR or Cupra, and after driving them both it had to be the Cupra for me.
    I picked up the Cupra on friday and I'm so happy with it.
    So here they are, past and presant.

    Yea, the mirror's are the first thing to go. I'm going to order some cupra black one, a new style cupra gearknob and a strut brace on tuesday.

    @ Octane- yea the glanza was nice, undriveable in the wet though (it would just spin in 1st,2ndand 3rd), but it was realy good fun. Proper old skool turbo, lag, lag, lag and then boommmm, turbo would put you into the seat.

    Any mods planned for it?
    Also those alloys look like they're darker than usual, have you had them resprayed?

    Gaz - The alloys were like that when I got it, but I dont think they have been resprayed coz the spair looks like it has never been used and its the same coulor.

    Firs thing is to sort out them chrome mirrors and get a new style gearknob & a S2000 ariel and a auto window close unit, hoping to get them ordered this week. Then save up for a remap.

    Yea, amnesia, the cupra is absalutly mint. I'm loving it. Just ordered some black mirror covers for it and just got my kvw 100 auto window close kit and just finishing off my flip key (just the transponder to swop over) and start to save for a remap
