Hi mate, company called sfs
Looks great, puts mine to shame! I like what you have done with the alloys, got the same ones on mine but just normal silver colour.
Ive had mine quite a while now & just take my time with it tbh, have you done much to yours?
I've not done much mods wise in the 9 years I've had it that is noticeable, aside from the alloys and supersprint exhaust. I drove it for about 6 years and just kept it ticking over with no major issues.
However, in the last 3 year years just keeping it running has cost a small fortune - new brake calipers, brake pipes and hoses all round, new KO3s turbo, new suspension (which hasn't lowered it that much and is too crashy so going to replace), wishbones and every bush front and rear, CV boots/joints, ball joints etc... alternator and replacement of the fuse box on top of battery which melted! If I ever sell it, aside from the bodywork, someone would get a very solid car.
Having a B5 RS4 has taken a lot of cash away from what I'd like to do to the Ibiza but it's a good little go cart to drive around daily. Next up, assuming no mechanical issues, is to sort out the sounds inside. The sh!t radio/tape player really doing my head in now!
wow you have almost had yours as long as me then lol
They are old cars now so u can expect things to go wrong but i can see them going up in value (the mint ones) as time goes by as alot are getting broken for parts
Perfect day to work on the car
Got mapping date booked for the middle of next month so just fixing a few minor issues while i can
Main job was my fuse box in the engine bay which had melted which caused my rad fan's to stop working & also my secondary water pump. I replaced the fuse box & then noticed my rad fans would come on/off every few seconds so i looked into the matter further to find it was related to me converting to wideband ecu
Was quite an easy fix tbh, had to remove 1 wire from ecu
2nd wire from the left needed to come out
"Car runs sweet now dad" my daughter said
Treated myself also, just waiting on pinion brace to turn up before i fit
What a weapon bro
Looks pretty awesome mate, good job, you should be proud!

Could you say me where you found those polycarbonate windows please ?
Hi mate, i got them from http://www.plastics4performance.com/
No worries dude
That your ibiza in your profile pic? Got a build thread? Looks pretty cool
Yes, it's mine on picture
No thread about it, but only a blog. I can not put the address here, so if you write "tchoff03" on google, you'll normally find the blog (skyrock).
Not a lot of picture, but so you can see
It's only for hillclimb (I'm only beginning )
Is it possible to send PM here ? I don't find anything about this...
Very nice read mate.... beginner ay
Really like where you have placed gauges in centre console
Yes send me a Pm mate, im happy to help u where i can.
Car is back from being mapped, had a few issues & mapping session had to stop at 285bhp which feels surprising quick. Once ive sorted these issues i will be back to what the turbo is fully capable of
After a good clean it was only right for me to take a picture ;-)
