...You've just got a recent brand new car... with one of the smallest engines possible and now you want to mod it to make it quicker. Why not just buy a quicker car in the first place?

Some people don't have that luxury Steeps, travis the intake won't hurt your fuel consumption it will actually help it alot, less restriction means the engine doesn't have to work as hard to get what it needs. Look into k&n I'm sure they have a drop in filter for your car

Luxury? It's an 09 plated car costing at least 9k, insurance on top and still cash left over to modify it.

Steeps - he's blatantly been bought it by somebody else perhaps parents and therefore choose the engine size for him. Its pointless putting an induction kit on it the car will never be fast and you will just look (or sound) like a complete prat.

An 1.2 Ibiza isn't going to be fast unless you actually swap the engine. So I wouldn't bother with it, just gonna make the OP sound like a chav.

yeh 1.2 was the hghest allowed my paretns bought half the car. and i thought in a year or 2 i can sell it and get a 2nd hand 1.6/1.8

i cant get it insured though wiv the mod im too young 19. so i think i might use a easy fit one, if i crash get a garage to put back the normal pipe, and then the insurance comp wont know? ive tried 1 out and there is a scratch mark on the connection now though only slight.

so bascially my question is how risky is drving with this mod. i cant get the normal pipe in relatively easy if i need to get it fixed or warrenty looked at.

Let the lad have some fun for christ sake.

There is no real 'bad' side to it, if its one that sits near the engine then you might actually lose a bit of power due to heat soak but nothing major.

It won't help it a lot; in fact, you'll barely notice a difference in MPG. If the OP decides to drive like he stole it, then the chances are of a decrease in MPG, where alternatively there may be a slight increase driving at normal speed.

I just don't see the point in investing in an air filter that you have to maintain constantly which does nothing to your car bar perhaps hurt your engine in the long run....

Unless its properly installed with a cold air feed the only thing your likely to gain is that noise you get with induction kits. Youll lose power if your just soaking up warm air as well.

yeah go for it
invalidating the insurance on your brand new car is a great idea.
i can't wait to see your "omg i wrote off car" thread.

Cleaning is only required every 100,000 miles for a K&N Induction kit.

I've got a K&N on my 1.25 zetec Fiesta. I don't think it adds much to the performance at all but it does sound pretty tasty when it hits 3000rpm. They definitely use more fuel, no doubt about that! EDIT: That's probably because i rev the arse off it so i can hear the air filter haha.

The K&N Induction kits can only add upto 10ish horse power max, it's more than likely alot less for you.

Other air filters are far worse for maintenance (pipercross).
