    New Owner - 2002 (52) Saloon 1.9 TDI Sport

    Been enjoying the car for about 3 weeks now and have this weekend done the plenum grommets after hearing water splashing about behind the dashboard.

    Bought mainly as an upgrade from a 3 door Ibiza after I became a dad. Waiting to get into the car while mum put the little one in the passenger front seat, was wearing a little.

    I know topics are useless without pics and all that so will get some up, however, its totally poverty spec standard so you aren't missing much.

    Got a few jobs to do...a faulty wire on my passenger door speaker results in it cutting out now and again. Also got a hole in the lower (unpainted) part of the rear bumper that looks like reversing damage, so ideally will look to replace this part.

    Unable to post in the Wanted section, so if anyone has upgraded their standard non-cutout rear bumper and still have theirs knocking about, please let me know how much you want

    Headlights are really poor...any cheapish tips to improve these? ...or is a HID upgrade really worth it?

    The headlights are very crap as standard, I've fitted a 6000k HID kit to mine and it's loaded better.
