Very Nice Indeed mate :) quality motor

I think they restored a similar one on wheeler dealers a few years back but it didn't look anywhere near as nice as your dads

Good choice with the Piper Turbo back exhaust 8) top quality and british made too!
Should pull some nice figures when mapped, expect loads of torque :mrgreen: my mates was running 300 lbs feet and 176 bhp which was basically the limit of clutch & flywheel.

Great cars the Fabia vRS and highly underated

He recentley had a lot of work done on it so everythings immaculate. I espically love the 2 inch thick footwell carpets 8)

Wasnt sure whether to get milltek or piper, But eventually ended up choosing the piper. Im hoping to eventually get around 200-210bhp. But that will require a new turbo, FMIC ,clutch and flywheel. But thats a little way down the line.

And its definitley underated. I love it! Its pretty quick but can still get 50+mpg when I want it to 8)

Top class motor, just oozes quality!

Stage 2 vRS would be pretty special, Seat Ibiza Cupra FMIC, Hybrid Turbo, VR6 Flywheel and a stage 1 clutch 8) do it!

I really like them, good looking cars and decent performance whilst retaining great MPG as you said.
My mate sold his to buy a EP3 type R and then sold that for Ibiza Cupra TDI :) crazy little cars too

Yeah Stage 2 is the plan. 8)
Also plan to get super pro bushes all round and a rarb.
Although not until at least later next year as my insurance would just go sky high.

I travel 90miles a day. So really its perfect for what I need, and its always a joy to drive.
