    I have just bought a 98 seat ibiza gti (2.0/dohc 16v), but for some reason it wont start. Ive checked that ive got a spark,fuel is getting through,starter motor/battery is fine. Are the engines on these the same as golfs ??

    Yep, same as a Mk3 Golf GTi. Try posting on www.seatcupra.net (if you haven't already.)
