    Wee picture of the Ibiza from the early house of last night. Not the best quality, but was pitch black apart from the moon light.

    Also, fully blacked out ftw

    It's a Mk1 Fabia VRS.

    Similar mileage to this and well looked after but a lot more toys and mods fitted to it.

    Going to return this to standard, fix a few things and sell it but use it until it's sold, then switch to the Fabia

    Paint work isn't perfect but a lot better than the pictures show

    Allard EGR delete pipe (makes the engine light come on but I have a code reader to show this is just because the egr is removed. Didn't cause any problems but the original egr valve is included if you want to revert to normal and not have the light showing)

    Are you going to tell us the new car? Or are you going all Sam Dunning?

    Wheels looks nice, make it look newer and fresher

    Deposit paid on replacement car today.
    Should be picking it up on Saturday but going keep using the Ibiza for the moment until it's ready to be sold so about a month tops i'm hoping.

    Wheels painted silver look nice on the Ibiza as well.
    Should look even better on the new car

    Another VAG mobile.

    I won't get rid of all the problems before i sell it but i'll have a price to reflect that.
    It's away getting it's wheels painted the now, silver this time and some Rain Sport 3's fitted at the same time.

    Sounds silly i know if i might be buying another car, but the wheels would just swap straight onto it if i get it.
    Didn't get to view last night as limited time so driving to view as soon as i collect the Ibiza.

    People always get rid of the annoying little problems before they sell it

    Might have a replacement for this shortly.

    Going to go and view something else tomorrow hopefully.

    Edit: Viewing arranged for tomorrow now.
    Fitted all new Denso glow plugs to this now and no more EML at last. If all goes well will be up for sale in a month or so.

    Trying not to get too optimistic as have been let down before.

    It's got a small coolant leak and i've let it run a bit low sometimes.
    It's difficult to find the leak because sometimes it's fine for weeks then other weeks it's emptied the header tank.
    Had it pressure tested a few times and seems to hold pressure.

    Usually in such cases the heater radiator is gone. Air pockets develop only if you do full coolant change.

    Can get glow plug harness from TPS so it's same as OEM for around 85.
    3 more glow plugs, so they're all new is 30ish so will get that done this weekend hopefully then no more EML lights.

    Seem to have an air lock in the cooling system as well. Heaters go cold when i stop, but when i check the coolant reading on torque it shows fine. Strange.

    I'll be using OEM thermostat as well and any gaskets. It's one of those jobs that i don't want to do twice.
    Most of the stuff i've fitted to this car has been OEM as well.
    Glow plugs are Denso though rather than Bosch and i think Bosch are OEM
