    Just sold the s3....

    thats true! The ibiza should still be fun to drive. i plan to either get one with a stage one map or get a standard one and have it mapped, then it will be the same power to weight as the stage 1 s3 i sold. Interior quality will be hard to live with when compared to the s3.

    more power = bent rods

    i wouldnt mind betting that it was the driving style since fitting the tip which contributed to the bent rod.

    OHHHH MYYYY GOOOODDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!! :@ :@

    i have removed my sump pan and refitted twice. my advice would be to use the oem sealant. All mechanics i have spoken to said to pay the extra! My mate works for mitsubushi and the genuine sealant for the mitsi's is over £40!!
