you know you have a Mk2 ibiza 1.0 mpi when your tappets sound like someone kicking a coke can down a back lane and even the scrap man wont take it..
when you get in it monday morning only to realise the battery is flat from the Radio turning itself on over the weekend

when the struts need replacing again
when despite everything you wouldn't want any other car
You know you have a mk3 ibiza when you can describe from the 'quirks' someone has a mk3, not a mk2
haha I was never sure if it was a 3 or a 2 bless her, it was right on the borderline between, I think she has split personalities!
I'll definitely give you the split personality, if for nothing else, the chassis' of the two are very similar, the mk3 has been referred to in the past as a mk2 facelift-facelift. But they changed a few bits and pieces under the bonnet, and obv gave it the newer face, and since VAG have a habit of recycling chassis', its more appropriate to call it a mk3, if it looks like mine anyway
Thank you! Like I said I wasn't sure but then I started reading this thread and was sure mine was an Mk2! it's a 2000 model, I'm not sure what the production dates were for the mk2 and mk3 but shes an old girl now so seems about right she had a couple of facelifts!
when you're unsure if you have a mk2 or a mk3!
(from what I've just looked up I think mk3 starts at 2002? ... but there was a facelift in 99-02 which is sometimes reffered to as mk3 in the uk so this is where my confusion came from, apologies! I know now that on this forum its considered mk3 - she still has a lot of "mk2" problems though! )
pre facelift ibiza *mk2
when the model changes depending on what country its in!
(Yup, I have a mk3 (Thank you! ) but she takes after her mother then cos I have all the mk2 problems! )
that after 5 years you still want another!!!
when you spend a year and a half getting it on the road then the oil pump packs in
After 6yrs still à unique car!
When you can't get up the any hill in the snow
when the stock suspension feels like you're driving a tractor
when you seriously consider making a mix tape
when you run with the headunit unplugged to stop the battery running out
when the temp display reads -40 in the summer
You know you have got a mk2 when it sounds like a milk float
