Hey guys! Been a while since I've been on here, so hope your all doing well.

I've made a few minor changes to my Ibiza, changed the head lamp bulbs to OSRAM bulbs to make them brighter and whiter, didn't think it would work originally, but was impressed with the results!

here we go: (excuse the blown bulb!)

My misses is getting rid of her old Focus next year, as when we get a place to live were planning on only needing one car, and she said i can use some of that money to get some nice new black alloys :D

Gaitor from ebay, topgaitors: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280441271784

Gear Knob from ebay again, ac_accessories: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140350253306


The gaitor was the most fiddly, easy to remove - see these videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2ggjrZPlkY & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjwZW7UK4us

The problem is fitting a leather gaitor, as they are thicker and not as stretchy, so you have to really play with it to make it fit.

Tbh Id have went with " its thicker and not as stretchy " ;-)

On topic though - Looking good with a few simple mods, does it not already have they sharpish FR wheels? Their smart standard I think :-)

I love my FR wheels, I'd never get rid of them but I might spray them in anthracite!

Maybe you could pick up a set of them mate, often some going on seatcupra.net or ibizaoc.com

Thanks for the links by the way, I may get that gaitor, but gonna keep my FR knob! haha
