Black Edition Citigo

Recommended Posts

So I had been looking at what first car to buy, looked all sorts and had a few test drives. Ended up in the Skoda garage at quite a good time tbh, was the day that they had released the new Black Edition Citigo. Thought it looked nice and was for a reasonable price for what I was getting, black wheels, blacked out windows, extra speakers etc. So I put a deposit down on it based on what I'd been told and the picture below as there wasnt any actual pictures of it, and was told it would be arriving from Germany within 2 week, the long wait started.

Then had a phone call saying they'd accidentally sold me the car that was going to used as a demonstrator, but as I'd already put the deposit down they said they'd have to let me have it and that I would be one of the first people to have it on the roads, which was true as I didnt see one until 4 months after I got mine.

 

Day I got my car I thought it looked great

Exactly 5 weeks later left my car at a car park, came back to find a scratch along the wheel arch. The lass who did it drove off as well and parked about 10 spaces up, was told by someone she did it and was quiet noticeable by the dent and the black paint on her car, nice big bill for her.

First mod I made was the wind deflectors and personally think they look blend in great with the all black car.

Here's some photos of the car, when its clean;

I've more possible mods planned such as adding;

 

Exhaust tip

Air filter

Changing the headlights to white

LED rear lights

Remap

 

Then I'm also considering either changing the grill surround to black, to finish the black look.

Or to get the wing mirrors chrome to give it a black and chrome look, and maby getting the strips similar to the monte carlo but in silver.

 

Sorry if you've found this boring but feel free to leave any comments or advice.

 

Ill up date this I make any mods as well.

About bloody time you started a project thread :D I say go for chrome mirrors.. something different, but your decision at the end of the day

Haha, finally has some spare time yesterday to make one. I'm quite tempted to get the chrome wing mirrors but I want something else to have the chrome look all the way wrong the car.

I think it would be, for a 60hp engine to go up to 82/84hp I think would make quite a bit of difference. Only thing is its £350 :/

It's been a while since I've updated this, but I've been trying sort my insurance out as they won't insure me to have any mods that will effect the engine power :( which I didn't know until I had ordered a Ramair air filter and wanted to declare it. So when it came to renewing it I looked at a few other companies, but they were a few hundred £ more :(.

But anyway I've ordered the skoda mudflaps as I'm sick of have a back end that is like a muddy field, but they seem quite small and I'm not sure if they'd make much difference. Wondering whether to just but them on or to go for some universal mudflaps which might be a bit bigger.

Anyone got any tips regarding this?

Mudflaps do squat tbh :D I like them though, they've really grown on me and with the spacers help really make the back end sit nice

Managed to get them on today, front ones easy the back ones weren't to bad. Used a Stanley to take the bits for the drilled holes and put the very stiff clipped on.

Cheers, I think now I'll change the head lights and DLR bulbs next to a more whiter colour anyone got any recommendations? Also has anyone found any brake caliper covers, I've had a look but not found anything so far.

DRL's http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/r580-w21-5w-7-5w-cob-white-led-bulbs-2-bulbs/ (Be sure to read my review!)

 

Headlights http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MZQUGLK/ref=pe_1984571_74200241_em_1p_5_ti (comes with sidelights, but they are tiny and won't fit)

 

Will look like this

      So, what is this project and why did i restart it? I kind of lost some motivation on the the first project thread and sort of gave up, the old topic was kind of messy, unrelated posts etc. and because I started the original project back in 2014 (nearly 2 years ago!) I know if I looked back through it, a lot of photos would be deleted or no longer visible, I'm going to lay out this topic in a similar way to the topic on Mighty Car Mods.
       
      When the topic first started out, I had no big plans for the car, how much the car has transformed over the years has been down to 2 main factors, Briskoda.net and Updown789, who I met through Briskoda just over a year ago, his help with the car has been huge and without him, the car wouldn't be what it is today. We've had our moments at times and disagreements, but we have always looked back and laughed about them. (I also mustn't forget Stormchaser, who has also lent a hand or 2 every once and a while and provided a few parts for the car as well as anyone else who has helped me and I haven't named.)
       
      Let's get into things.. to keep things short and sweet, I'll post all the major changes that have been made (so I won't bother posting about the Heko wind deflectors etc.).. i'll be honest too, during my time of ownership I have done some mighty **** looking modifications and made mistakes for choosing modifications that haven't exactly looked great.. it's all about learning from your mistakes though.. right..?
      This is going to be a mighty long first post.
       
      14th January 2013, the day I bought the car, a standard Citigo SE model in Tornado Red with the winter pack (heated seats, electric heated mirrors) and 14" Apus wheels.
       

       
      12th June 2014 -
       
      I crashed. (Not my fault, doing the speed limit and a deer came out and I had nowhere to go.) The parts damaged were:
       
      - Bonnet
      - Headlight
      - Headlight bracket
      - Bumper to side panel clip
      - Inner wheel arch
      - Side panel
      - Front bumper
       

       
      18th July 2014 -
       
      Debadged the rear after being motivated to do it by Stormchaser. (Apologies I haven't got a great picture. Also this was done whilst the car was still being repaired.)
       

       
      24th July 2014 -
       
      Finally the car was repaired, having 0 knowledge of cars and how parts worked, I fitted and sourced all the parts myself from eBay & Skoda, the wing I bought did need respraying and due to my lack of knowledge on cars, the person who resprayed the wing, didn't use the cars paint code so, it's not the right shade of red.
       
      The wheels were also resprayed black, by again the same person, this was also done on the cheap as I later found obvious runs in the paint and it was done with the tyre still on the wheel.
       


       
      23rd March 2015 -
       
      It begins.. having purchased a incorrectly described headlight switch, which was chrome, I wanted chrome to match the chrome heater controls, turns out it was from an Up! so illuminated red and not green, however this prompted me to wanting to change all the lights in the car to red, as I liked the look and colour, so I got some Volkswagen Up! heater controls & buttons to match.
       

       
      14th April 2015 -
      First of many big changes, H&R lowering springs. (35mm.)
       

       
      19th April 2015 (An educated guess..) -
       
      Changed front grille over to a Monte Carlo one from the OEM Chrome one. (Again IIRC, this was originally Stormchaser's.)
       

       
      21st May 2015 -
       
      After noticing my front numberplates were tired and worn I changed them out for some funky 3D effect number plates.
       

       
      11th June 2015 -
       
      Without a doubt in my mind the worst modification I have ever done, I got completely fobbed off by an eBay seller and bought what I thought were genuine leather seats, which it turned out, was just leather sprayed onto the original cloth seats (if you think they look rubbish in the photos, just imagine what they looked like in person! :D) 
       

       
      20th June 2015 -
       
      Upgraded the speakers to FLI ones. (No pictures due to limitations on how many pictures can be posted to one single post on Briskoda.)
       
      11th July 2015 -
       
      FLI Rear speakers added. (Had none in the rear from factory.) (No pictures due to limitations on how many pictures can be posted to one single post on Briskoda.)
       
      17th July 2015 -
       
      Volkswagen Up! radio finally fitted to match the heater controls, also, this is gloss black opposed to the standard plastic look the Skoda Citigo radio has.
       

       
      22nd August 2015 -
       
      Functioning autolights with coming and leaving home function enabled via VCDS.
       

       
      28th September 2015 -
       
      Another addition to the red theme, W8 Interior Light.
       

       
      2nd October 2015 -
       
      Actual leather seats! Okay, not 100% leather, rather a mix of both pleather and leather done by Seat Surgeons in West Yorkshire.
       

       
      4th October 2015 -
       
      Following on with more leather bits, a Volkswagen Up! leather handbrake and Gearknob.
       

       
      17th October 2015 -
       
      Said goodbye to the H&R springs and upgraded to KW Variant 1 Coilovers (secondhand) to lower the car that ever so slightly more. An up to date picture just after the coilovers.
       

       
      17th - 18th November 2015 -
       
      Had the car professionally detailed and paintwork also corrected, 20 hours labour.
       

       
      3rd December 2015 -
       
      Dewipered. (The plastic bung was soon replaced with a flush glass one.)

       
       
      9th January 2016 -
       
      Continuing with the leather theme, MK3 Skoda Octavia leather MF steering wheel.
       

       
      13th February 2016 -
       
      MY16 Skoda CItigo Monte Carlo cherry red centre console fitted.
       

       
      23rd March 2016 -
       
      No photos.. however the car was remapped by EcoTuning with a map from Celtic Tuning.. what this started was a complete change in terms of what route I was taking the car down.
       
      13th April 2016 -
       
      Chopped off the resonance chamber from the OEM intake pipe. Now with a remap, I was on the hunt for more power from the 1.0 engine, this one mod is what started a long road to find the best intake pipe I could make/find.
       

       
      17th April 2016 -
       
      More attempts to gain power, with Updown789's help, we de-restricted the filter box. (This was of course smoothed.)
       

       
      5th May 2016 -
       
      Redid the intake pipe with a Silicone bend. And also picked up some freshly refurbished Volkswagen Avus wheels found on the old Volkswagen Cabriolets, these wheels were originally in Updown789's possession however I purchased them from him and had them diamond cut and resprayed by Motura in Ferndown.
       

       

       
      13th May 2016 -
       
      It turned out the silicone pipe was rubbing on the bonnet, so this was scrapped and using some intake ducting I bought of eBay a year or so back, I came up with a design and found a way I can have a pipe coming from behind the grille direct to the filter box. This will soon again change as this "design" so to speak was revised 3 or 4 times before being final.
       

       
      17th May 2016 -
       
      Again, changed the intake pipe, got rid of the Silicone bend as it really wasn't needed.
       

       
      24th May 2016 -
       
      Took the car again to Motura to have the OEM Skoda Citigo Sport splitter and diffuser fitted as well as a gloss black OEM Volkswagen Up! spoiler.

      The car has certainly come a long way in the last year. I had originally planned to have it show spec and pristine. I've had a theme of "Black and Red". Then moved onto having an "old style" theme with the old classic wheels and amber side repeaters along with chrome grille.
      As of current, the future plan is and will be to have the car as powerful as I can make it without damaging the engine and do as many track days as possible. We'll see where it takes me from there.

      Hi,
       
      I have just bought a used 2014 Citigo Black Edition with the six speaker pack and everything about the car is great.
       
      However, when connecting to the PID device (GARMIN) over Bluetooth and playing music, my left and right audio channels are the wrong way around. Sounds that should come from the right speaker come from the left speaker and vice versa. Playing from the same device (iPhone SE 64GB.) via an aux cable everything is correct and stereo sound is fine. All sound settings on car stereo and PID are set to default. The issue is only with Bluetooth audio through the PID. The iPhone works correctly with Bluetooth headphones (Left and right channels are correct).
       
      Any ideas on how to fix it? Dealer has told me to bring it back to the workshop...
       
      Thanks!

      I'm sure that this is discussed elsewhere within the forum, but, I would like to know what sort or mileage members are getting when on a long European run.
       
      In November, I'll be heading from Kent down to Milan in our CitiGo Greentech (75). How many times do you think I will need to refuel on the way there? I'll be sticking to the motorways.
       
      Cheers

      Hi, my yeti has is white with silver mirrors, but I saw one today with black mirrors and I think it looks better. Can you buy black mirror caps for facelift model, and are they easy to fit. I saw Painted Black Mirror Caps and Decorative Black Mirror caps in Skoda Shop one says up to 2015, and the other up to 2016. are the mirrors actually different on original and facelift models.
      Any advise gratefully received.

      Morning all, 
       
      Im new to this site so not even sure im asking in the right place so im sorry if im not. Please let me expain my situation.. Im currently serving in the Army over in Germany and one of the pearks is that we get tax free cars with a discount..  Im looking at buying a new Octavia 245 but i cant decided on colour. I know it will cause debate but its between Black and Meteor grey. I will only be keeping the car for a year and selling it on or trading it in. What would be the best colour to do that? 
       
      Even though its a great colout im not sure if the meteor grey is a little boy racery without trying to offend anyone and could effect sell on. 
       
      Any help would be great.
