    Well after alot off thought (due to last weekend) I think it's about time I showed everyone exactly what I have done to my car start to finish, Here goes

    It started on 15-07-05 when I travelled all the way to Bedford to purchase the car it cost me just over 6k, It's a 2001 Y plate and came with 33k on the clock, As off that day I have been a very proud owner,
    The day after purchase
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02164
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02167
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02168
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02617

    The 1st thing I did to the car was the stubby mirror that was within the 1st week of owning and 1 off the best mod's I have done to the car IMO

    I then did a full chrome grille surround and got my plate onto the car, As soon as I did the grille surround's I hated it with a passion, but the glue had reacted with my grille so I knew it was a new grille jobbie

    It was a mk5 golf rear wiper next along with a mk4 "cupra" & 20VT badge
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02608

    Finally got a new grille and I decieded to leave the centre grille surround, also got some polo bonnet lifters and clear Audi A3 side repeaters

    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02689

    By this time Chi had bought her Lupo GTi and I loved her front aero wiper's so it was a must for me, I had to get 2 passenger side arm's and blades and do a little bit of trimming
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02704-1

    I'd had the car about 6 months now and was sick to death off rolling on stock wheels so I purchased some Seat Sport OZ superT's
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02793
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC02852

    Next was a oval Supersprint cat back & Leon R front splitter (which I disliked so it got ditched) and some hella clear rear lights, I knew the lights would look poop so I bought them knowing I would spray them half red

    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03437
    Rear lights as I bought them
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03058
    Then half tinted
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03066
    I wasn't too keen on the half tinted lights so I decided to go for a red outline like the origional Leon lights
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03075
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03076

    A Seat Sport strut brace was fitted next
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03468

    By this time I was pretty bored off my ride height and wheels so I got my 1st set off D90's (7" fronts and 8" rears) with some 25mm H&R adapters followed by some coilovers
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03682
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03706
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03718
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03716

    I then got some spare bumpers as they was going very cheap so I decieded to smooth my origional one's
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03629
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03680
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03724-1
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03723
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03729
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC03726

    I was pretty happy with the look off the car now but I was not happy with the wheels 7" X 16" are just too skinny for my liking, There was no stretch on the front and there was loads off room front and rear in the arches so I sold the D 90's knowing I wanted 8" and 9" D 90's I then got some german pressed plate along with some porsche surround's and a mk4 polo bonnet bra which I had altered to fit (Which I'm unsure about)
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC04002
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC04003

    I always hated the ugly cream roof lining and A,B & C pillars so I took them along to barton upholstery who did a top job retrimming them in black leather
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00197
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00202-1
    I then fitted Lupo GTi grab handles, rear view mirror & sun visor's (Black) also I painted a few thing's satin black to match
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00203
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00204-1
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00206-1

    Last but not least was my new D 90's (8" & 9") and my 996 turbo calipers (big red's) & Cupra R disc's (305mm) Along with ditching the rear "cupra" badge, The calipers are such a tight fit they had to be shaved so I could run D 90's

    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00097
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00113-1
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00125
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00124
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00174
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00173
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00165
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00152
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00226
    Mk3 Seat Ibiza Cupra AKA Veronica DSC00176

    I have done a few other things to the but I don't have pic's of them, These are- Alhambra Flippy key, rear wiper removed, seat sport gearknob, blue seat mats, blue door pins, black seat sport tax disc holder, EBC rear discs & pads, honda stubby ariel, I'd also like to add most off the work has been done by myself rather than paying somebody to do it for me, I think thats everything so comments welcome positive or negative, Thanks Will
