    Some of you may already know and hopefully most people wont, this project was purchased by Darkside From Clive ( missingmyvrs - Briskoda Forum) the week before Christmas 2017. He purchased the car from Richard (BossFox - Briskoda Forum), here is the previous thread - https://www.briskoda.net/forums/topic/243854-citigo-go-a-citigo-with-more-go/. We were alerted to the availability of the car by a random Facebook message and within a couple of days the trip ‘darn sarth’ was scheduled, the next few months would not be easy... After a good chinwag with Clive (more like an interrogation regarding the proposed spec, which remained secret until the car was presented in person!) The car was loaded onto our trusty T5 Transporter ready for the 220 mile journey back to HQ in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. If you are inpatient and can't wait to see how the car looks now, here is the full spec list - https://www.darksidedevelopments.co.uk/citigo-4-motion-2-0-tdi-16v-common-rail/ So the first job when getting back to Darkside HQ was to unload, have a good look around, get a plan together for the full build and make a list of parts that need to be ordered. Lots of little parts were missing that you would hope were there (bonnet pull, boot locks, wiper mountings cut etc), and a good chunk of the fabrication and machining that was already done needed to be rectified or adjusted, Engine Mounts, Wishbones, Pedal box, brakes, the list goes on! The engine choice was already made the day we set eyes on the car. Basically an engine specification similar to the Arosa, mated to an AWD 02M Gearbox with Ibiza Cupra TDI Ratios, linked to the haldex setup at the back, then finished off with Limited Slip Quaife ATB Differentials Front and Rear. By the end of January we had the fully built engine installed and running. Mid February the car was fully MOT ready and passed with flying colours. We still had a lot of finishing touches and lots of specification changes (sounds easy typing that now…) to get to where we are now. Tuning was always going to be a big job, and finding the time between a jam packed diary has been quite difficult, and there is much more to come. We only have a GTB2260vk on there running moderate boost and 280hp until we have proven the chassis. The engine should be able to kick out a reliable 360bhp that will take punishment for 100’s of miles a day on track with the GTD2872vr turbo we plan to run. We didn’t have time to install the WON REVO Nitrous system either but that will come later! When news got out that we had a new project, we were approached by a few Magazines and asked if we would keep the project under wraps until after the first photoshoot that was planned to happen on the 28th of March. It was a difficult decision, as we would have to limit what we could post on social media and who we could involve in the project. I’m sure we had a mole somewhere, as quite a few people did know what was going on but thankfully the nice guys kept their mouth shut We had to hold off transferring the TD1 1 AWD number plate onto the car for obvious reasons. Tuesday 27th mid afternoon the Citigo and our trusty Ibiza track car were loaded onto the truck and trailer ready to head to Snetterton Circuit for the cars first shakedown. We had very few road miles on the car due to the last minute issues we faced so we had to cross our fingers (sorry Paul!) and hope everything was alright. Also, this was my first ever drive since passing my trailer test so the pressure was never off, haha. We arrived at Snetterton just before 9pm to unload and hide the car away in our Garage ready for the day ahead... Wednesday Morning bright and early Adam Walker ( https://www.facebook.com/AJWIMAGES/) was on hand at to shoot the car for the upcoming VWG Magazine feature, be sure to keep your eyes out for that in the next few months! This would be the first time Clive saw the car, we didn't release any information during the build so he was shocked when he saw how far the car had come since last time he saw it back in December, a passenger ride was scheduled for after lunch. Luckily we fitted a larger passenger seat especially for this day, Sorry Clive! The car was amazing on track, we expected the soft springs and no front ARB to upset the handling slightly but we had a good time and impressed a few people. We had a lot of people saying the short wheel base and narrow track would cause issues but looks can be deceptive. Our Citigo has a 2.45m Wheel Base and 1.65m track width compared to a standard Fabia’s 2.46 & 1.64m, its still short for a car with plenty of shove from the rear end but not as bad as you might first think. With ‘only’ 280bhp and weighing in at 1160kg without the 2 fat people on board it was never going to be the fastest car on track. The rain helped show the benefit of the the Quattro Haldex system compared to our FWD Ibiza and was the main reason this project was interesting to us in the first place. A Front Wheel Drive version of this would have been immensely cheaper and much easier to build, and on a dry track likely faster but where is the fun in that... Maybe in the future we will look to build the car into a replica of the WRC car Skoda, No reply from Skoda Motorsport regarding the panels so if anyone can help us with that, please get in touch! I’ll be making further posts about the car build showing some of the major hurdles we faced along the way, some expected and most of them certainly unexpected! Any questions please ask!

    Thank you. Mixed results, changeable weather and a good gamble on tyres. But lets be honest, if you said that after round one Brisky would be in third place in the BTCC team championship in front of all the manufacturer teams I'd have thought you were mad. Especially as qualifying was rather interesting.... and those teams are spending at least double what we are per car over the year. Jake got his best ever result. 2nd in race two. Highest placed independent. Mike got his his best at 8th in race two, then got it up to 5th in race three. Getting one bumped on the green flag warming up lap and put out of the race before the start and a few other things made the day an emotional rollercoaster, but we came away far better than we expected. However, there is a long way to go, we are 10% of the way in currently. One emotional driver and team! 2nd Overall. 1st Independent. Jack Sears Winner. We have flags! Something I thought I'd never see. I will see what is available. I don't think there is but will PM you.

    The black cat is called Scaredy as he used to be petrified of people. In 2011 he used to spend most of the time on our Garden and hide under the car in bad weather. We'd feed him but he'd bolt if approached. I built him an outdoor shelter which he eventually started to use but he was still a bit thin and scabby with fur missing. Then one day (After about 6 months in the outdoor shelter) he just came up to me and I could see he had an infected bite. Long story but the vet said he was about two years old and neutered so abandoned rather then feral. We treated the bite and also found he has severe flea bite allergy and suffers stress from his early life, he also had dental issues. So £2000 later and another year of coaxing him out of the shelter he finally moved in during 2013. Now when I'm home he doesn't leave my side, hence coming out and sitting on the engine if I'm working on the car. A better life now.

    couple more modifications, new Reiger carbon rear diffuser, black tail pipes, 19" Xtremes treated and fitted, I'll be de-badging tomorrow night and fitting the new grill before dub shed hopefully. it got a bit cold so some of the images are icy, I've machine polished the whole car and treated with Gtechniq c2v3 which looked great in the sun. Its still sitting a bit tall as the suspension hasn't settled back yet. I'm pretty pleased with the Gyeon as the finish is mirror like. As i was changing the wheels i couldnt believe it but the mechanic who did the lowering spring also fitted the spacers..... 15mm and 20mm, he's only gone and fitted 15mm on one side and 20mm on the other instead of front and back!!! I only noticed as i thought the spacer on the rear was a bit thin when i had the wheel off. I hope it was his apprentice and not himself.

    Wento for a quick trip to the petrol station. Got sidetracked. I am loving this car! It sounds like it's gargling on the fuel not just drinking it, what an awesome sound! Considering it's 33 years old, the steering is light and accurate, it goes very nicely, stops pretty well. It's flippin' hot in there in this sun though. Cornering hard makes the rear wheels scrape - not sure what's touching what at the moment. And did I mention that sound? Epic. Can't stop grinning.

    Went to the supermarket while I waited for traffic to die down a bit. Second supermarket car park of the evening. Terrible pic, it was getting dark The drive home was uneventful. Loud. Very loud. It sounds sooo good though. It goes well, brakes well, steers nicely, rides nicely. Very happy indeed. There are definitely some rough edges to sort out, but I can drive it at last! So happy!

    After spending several months considering options for replacing my current Yeti I thought I'd post up my thoughts on ~120k miles / 5 years owning 3 Yeti's. 2009: My first Yeti was a new 2009 manual 1.2 TSi SE, in Muscovado. This felt like a huge step-up in quality, driving dynamics and styling, compared with the 1.6 petrol Qashqai it replaced. I ran this for 1 year / 10K miles and ended up trading it in for a 1.8 TSi 4x4 Octavia estate, after becoming a little frustrated with the (relative) lack of power, poor fuel economy (~30 mpg), lack of boot space and poor winter / snow performance (I'd yet to discover winter / all-season tyres). The car cost £16k and I got £15k back for it at trade in. Of all the cars I've owned this remains the lowest depreciating car ever, helped no doubt by the long waiting list at the time (a friend actually paid over the original list price for a second hand 4x4 Yeti, during a particularly snowy winter, such was the demand in the early days). I was approached by numerous people in car-parks / when re-filling at petrol stations, asking either what it was, or how I was finding it. I've owned a number of cars (>100) and more people asked about my Yeti (in 2009) than any other car. Towards the end of my time with this car the timing chain was beginning to rattle and would have no doubt required replacement (under warranty) before too long. Other than the Bolero being slow to load / read MP3's the car was otherwise faultless. 2012: I ran a petrol Octavia for another 18 months, before realising how much I missed driving a Yeti. I didn't particularly rate the 1.2 TSi engine and so this time opted for a 2.0 TDi (110 BHP) 2WD. This was a pre-facelift Urban special edition. I ran this for 2 years / 45k miles and barring zinc inclusions rated this car highly. Despite similar power / performance to the 1.,2 TSi the diesel was considerably more torquey and consistently delivered high 40's MPG. At this time I discovered both roof-boxes and winter tyres, which addressed the previous short-comings of the original car. The seats in the Urban were the best of any Yeti I've owned / driven, offering good lumbar support, alongside heavier bolstering than the standard seats. I've not come across these particular seats in any other Yeti. The car cost ~£18k and returned £13.5k at 2 years / 45k miles. Again a great result in terms of depreciation / cost per mile. The gearbox was only 5 speed, but it cruised well and 5th gear offered similar revs to 6th in the earlier car. 2014: I fancied a little more power and initially considered re-mapping the 110 BHP TDi. I was a little concerned by the lack of ESP though and instead opted to switch for another (new) 2.0 TDi. This was a 4x4 140 BHP TDi "Tour de France". These were special edition models, released at the time of the race. I initially considered a Superb Tour de France, but after driving one realised they are a bit of a barge and don't drive especially well (compared to the Yeti). I opted to eschew the huge boot / interior space for another Yeti. I've now covered ~65k miles in my current Yeti and barring yet more zinc inclusions, the major issues have centered around the EA189 update (my thoughts / findings here: EA189) . Once I'd had the car remapped I continue to enjoy driving it on a daily basis. The original tyres wore evenly and all 4 were replaced with Michelin Cross Climates at ~40k miles (~2mm remaining). The Cross Climates are again wearing evenly and are at 5mm, after 25 k miles. The car generally returns low 40's MPG (mid 30's in the depth of winter) and the remap (Shark stage 1) has had no discernible negative impact on fuel economy, despite boosting power and torque considerably. The in-car tech is now looking rather dated, but the DAB and Sat-nav have proved useful (and cheap to update) and a big (64 Gb) SD card carries enough music to keep all occupants entertained. The car has performed faultlessly through several winters and has proved mechanically reliable. After the remap it seemed sensible to take it outside the dealer network for servicing and I've found a knowledgeable indie (Autohaus Dolby), who now looks after the car. I've stuck with long-life servicing, but change the oil myself after 10k miles, using a Pela oil extractor. I plan to get the cambelt / water pump changed at 4 years old and am currently investigating the costs involved in switching to 312 mm front brakes. The car is still on the original brakes all-round, although the rear discs are looking rather shabby / corroded. Other than tyres the only other replacements parts have been front and rear wipers and upgrading the headlights to Osram nightbreakers. I also took the opportunity to switch all the interior lights to LED, with varying degrees of longevity - you definitely get what you pay for! 2018: I had originally planned to trade this Yeti in, but the advent of the current anti-diesel sentiments / EA189 emissions update have pretty much destroyed the residual value of this type of car. It's current (trade) valuation stands at £6700 - £8300 (I paid £19k in 2014) and I was offered £8500 in part-ex (against an alternative marque - BMW). I test drove all alternatives (3008, Ateca, Kodiak and Karoq) and after driving each car got back in my Yeti and decided none of them were worth the ~£15k I would need to pay, in addition to the value of my car, to own one. The TDi Karoq I drove was £31k I'm mindful of the potential for costly failures (clutch / flywheel, DPF, EGR, Turbo etc), as the car ages, but hope to see >100k miles before anything big fails. I purchased the full version of the VAG DPF app and understand my DPF is 40% filled with oil ash. I extended the Skoda breakdown cover, as it seemed good value at £90 / year, but other than that am "flying solo" with regards to warranty cover. Looking back the Yeti is / was the best car I've ever owned and I'm more than a little cheesed off there is no longer a direct equivalent, offering such space (within a very diminutive platform), relative performance, all-weather ability, sheer "driveability" and genuinely unique styling (I've owned both pre & post FL cars). I suspect the Yeti and Roomster (I've owned 2 of these as well) represent the last of the truly characterful Skoda's.

    Hi folks, had the Octavia 245 almost two weeks now. My previous car was a Cupra 280 estate which I sold on and decided on a new Octavia vRS 245 estate. Ive wanted a change for a while having never really bonded with the car and previously had two petrol Octavia vRS hatchbacks over the years. The Cupra was an immensely capable car and the performance was brilliant. It would literally do anything I asked of it. I just couldn’t come to love it. One major thing that did let it down was the build quality and cheap grade plastics which I found disappointing on their supposedly ‘flagship’ model. Going back to an Octavia was how I always remembered them. Very well screwed together, lovely to drive and easily copes with whatever I throw at it. Do I really need 280BHP? Not really. Got to say though, yes the 245 is a lesser powered car and not quite the track tuned toy that the Cupra was, but that aside there isn’t that much in it. About 0.5 down on the 0-60 according to the figures. Who’s going to notice that? Ive yet to really open up the new car properly and am looking forward to clocking up some more miles over the weekend and loosening her up a bit. Have a good one folks.

    Recently got ourselves a Karoq, first Skoda for us and we really like it. Replaces a Tiguan for the family moving duties. Anyway for whatever reason the lighter socket on the Karoq is always live which isn't very useful for powering a dashcam. Had a look for a how-to for tapping a switched feed from the fusebox but only found little bits of info here and there so here is my quick guide to how I've done it. Convieniently there is a fuse box right behind the glove box (UK RHD car). Getting to the fuse box was in my opinion the most difficult task! The instruction manual does describe the process but it still took some figuring out. The glovebox is hinged at the bottom, has 2 bump stops (one either side) and a damping arm. The damping arm is removed by first pressing the lowest pivot point of the arm towards the engine, this should free the bottom pivot point and allow the arm to be detatched from the glove box. The 2 bump stops are freed by pressing them away from the glove box, see photo. From there it's pretty straigh foward. I used piggy-back/add a fuse to take a switched feed from fuse 47. For a return I used a ring tag on the T27 torx bolt that holds the fusebox in place, it's not ideal as the fuse box is plastic but I couldn't find anything easier or better that didn't probably involve taking more things apart. Routing the cable to the dashcam was simple, drops easily out the back of the glove/fuse box, behind the rubber seal up the door frame/A pillar and along the top of the headlining/windscreen. Hope this helps others with installing a dashcam. Cheers John

    Having bought a Mk2 Superb with two of the rear light cluster grommets missing and one of the 2 remaining ones broken, I sought a solution. I bought some rubber grommets from Halfords which fit perfectly. They are Membrane Grommets 8 mm and 13 mm, code HFX214, price £1.99. They are actually better than the original ones.

    Today I decided to solve a problem I've had with this car since day 1, the USB connection. There's nothing wrong it, but I hate that it is exposed. On previous cars it would be hidden away somewhere and I wanted it to be that way here, particularly now I have the CarPlay and my phone is always plugged in. It would be great to have it plumbed into the phonebox, but that's a no go as my iPhone 7 Plus is too large to fit with a cable attached, so I decided to route a wire to the centre console. The only part you will need is a spare cable. I ordered a 2m one which turned out to be a little overkill, 1.5m would be a nice length, but Apple only do 1m (that would be tight) or 2m. No, I didn't pay the £29 they charge for this, but I wanted a genuine one as I have found the cheap cables don't sync with CarPlay. The first job is to remove the gear gaiter, there are 4 tabs to pry and it comes off. Give the trim a good pull and it comes off with 3 connectors to unplug. Set that aside, then remove the USB/Aux trim. Ideally, you should remove the radio screen and climate panel, but I've done this a few times now and I know where the tabs are to pry. A little tug with a flat blade and the trim pops off easily. Remove the plugs and then place the trim to one side. Now remove the phonebox or ashtray. I have the phonebox, so there is a plug for that underneath and the wiring for what I assume is the LED bulb that lights up at night, set that aside and you should have this view. You can see I have routed the cable up and over the dash support bracket at the back and then routed the cable under the phonebox base and by the heating duct for the rear vents. I taped the USB end in place to avoid it coming loose and shoved it on top of the support bracket where it is nice and secure. The next job is to make a hole. I can make this bigger anytime but seeing as I'm a committed Apple user I decided that instead of routing a USB plug extension into the cubby (there is plenty of space to do this and you could make a factory neat job of it too) I would just run a lead as there would be one less plug connection. If Apple change from Lightening to USB-C or I decide they are getting too expensive and I defect to Android in a few years time, I can just undo this work and re route a new cable, it'd be very straightforward. With this in mind I wanted a small hole as the plug end is small, so I brought out my Makita mini impact driver (other drill brands are available) and drilled a hole just big enough for the cable end in the corner of the trim. Next, feed the cable past the handbrake lever and through the hole. The cable is so thin and the mat is slightly small anyway so it just fits back in with no adjustment needed. I decided for security and peace of mind to tape the cable to the trim so it won't come loose and interfere with the handbrake mechanism. Do this in maybe 2-3 places. Do a quick test to make sure the phone is read by the stereo and then you can reinstall. 'But Sasha, what do you do about the big hole the USB used to live in?' I hear you ask. Well, that's up to you, but as you know, I have a spare OEM socket from my old MIB1, so I have clipped that into place for now just to fill the hole. I intend to install a USB charge lead here for the passenger to charge a phone and I will splice this into the 12v feed. With everything complete it is time to stand back and enjoy CarPlay with no visible wires. The phone fits nicely in the centre console, but you could just as easily route it to the glovebox or anywhere else you like it. You can see just how much excess wire I have here, but I only store my phone in there and I know have the Phonebox free for other things. Much better

    SFTWARE UPDATE DONE - FEEDBACK. Software update done and its much better. To explain fully I will say how it was, how it is now, and how it affects pull away BEFORE: Lift clutch, revs jump to 1700 - 1900 from 800 If you keep the clutch at that point (lifted but not yet at bite point) the revs stay at that level. As you continue to lift clutch and bite point is reached the revs fall as load is put on engine. Noise, clutch wear, angry driver. HOW IT IS NOW: Lift clutch, revs flick up to 1300 - 1400 and quickly fall to 1000. This is with the clutch held at the pre bite point. In practice you lift the clutch in one movement so the flick up to 1300 is not noticeable. So I would say that if the car was like this when I got it I would not have noticed that it had a 'pull away assist.' So for me that's the end of the Pull Away revs issue. I did discuss the hesitant nature of the car with the head technician. It appears that emissions and MPG rule in the car world. Cars run on a much leaner mixture than they did years ago. This leaness does seem to make itself felt when pulling away - like not enough choke for those that remember pulling that knob on the dashboard in their youth. I also think the Octavia has low gearing, especially first gear. As soon as the car is rolling you feel the need to get into 2nd gear as it sort of nose dives as the gear is too low to make progress. Anyway I'm not losing sleep over that issue, I will bask in the smugness of my non revving pull aways.

    So, I've gone and got myself a little restoration project to tinker with when I get a little bit of spare time. It's definitely not a Skoda. Picked up this little guy last night for £35 Saw him pop up on Facebook Marketplace and decide I could give him a home He's in fairly decent nick structurally, the pedaling mechanism is all ok. I'll be stripping him right down and fully powder coating him. His tracking is slightly off so a new steering rod is on the cards and I need to see if I can source a replacement spare wheel to bolt on the back and his windscreen is missing. The original screen looks to be just a simple bit of metal tubing so worst case, I may fabricate a new one. He needs a horn too but that shouldn't be too hard to sort. Might be a little while before I get round to sorting him out but watch this space.

    My Karoq 1,5 TSI DSG quartz grey metallic, just arrived friday week 12, i ordered it week 01, so i must have been one off the lucky ones to receive my Karoq so quick :-) BTW i is a fantastic replacement from my old Yeti.
