    Alright mate. I also went from a GTi 6 to an Ibiza Cupra. We had a little discussion about wheels on the GTi6 site some time ago as mine had the same wheels on! I hated the Pug to be honest, always had turbo'd cars so it always felt like it was lacking straight line power to me, great in the corners though. Love everything about the Ibiza, much better build quality IMO. Mine is also red! Yours looks nice, got some good mods. Enjoy mate!

    I kept the 306 for 2 years, at first I was unsure, I went from a small nippy 1.8 mk1 clio and the 306 felt a bit slow off the mark at times

    I got used to it though and ended up loving it, was just a case of getting the most out of it

    the ibiza is totally different, never had a turbo before so I have alot to learn


    keeps raining at the moment so havent had much time to give it a good drive

    the thing that lets it down at the moment is the styling I think

    I prefered the diablo red of the 306, however flash red is growing on me


    going to lower 35mm when I've researched, I already have 4 lowering springs, but only 2 shocks for some reason, so need two more shocks

    then I'm not sure on the alloys, against the flash red, i just dont know if they dull the car a bit, not the brightest of silvers so I was tempted to change alloys of powder coat white, really unsure though

    I thought martin fitted it himself, but saying that when i saw it, it wasnt in the centre so im guesing turboboy centralised it for him

    I know what you mean about the wheels, kind of a dull finish. I bought some 17s for mine a couple of months ago but tried em on and wasnt keen on them. Ive got pics of them on a previous car thats lowered and they look ok but mines standard height and im not fussed about lowering it.
