Seat Ibiza FR TDi, HF05 HCA

The first car of my SEAT ownership, had a memorable trip to Perpignan with 2 kids and 3 adults plus all the luggage etc. Remapped with a Revo map by JKM Auuto in Portsmouth, it went very well indeed! Had a great day when we went Andorra and out accelerated a number of cars on the way up despite being 5 up, ha ha! but on the way back we got stuck in what became Southern France’s worst forest fire.

We spent around 8 hours stuck but luckily at the very front of what must have been an enormous queue behind us. The locals were kind though and brought out food and water. Luckily we had a DVD player we had brought along to keep the kids quiet – lots of films were watched! The best bit though was the fire fighting planes and the control centre right next to us.

My sister in law and her daughter were very taken by the French firemen who let them sit in the fire engine, so they were happy!
