Arrow Spec Sheet

History:
]
My name is Brett and I brought the car completely standard in October 2010 with only having 1 previous owner.

I had wanted a Cupra R since I was 18/19, we (the lads) were on the way to Billing VBOA rally and I remember seeing a yellow one come along side us on the M6 with 5 lads in, I dropped a gear in my Cav SRI and before I could even get on it, the Cupra R was just a yellow spec, Fu** me I thought, one day, one day!

So you can imagine when I went to see the car and pick it up I was in ore, it was a lot of car for the money.

So previously I was heavily into modifying Vauxhalls, I had a 4x4 Turbo Cavalier, V6 Cavalier and the SRI, and had sworn to myself that I would only lightly mod the Leon as it was a fast car already.

Well ……………. 8 years on and many, many ups and downs later I have slightly gone over my initial
mod list

Anyway, I won’t bore you any more, I will be around and happy to chat in more detail.

So on to the spec:

Thanks very much guys.

I didn't intend on spending/doing all that but one thing led to another etc etc.

I looked to get rid of it a while ago, test drove the rs3 amg golf r Honda and ford rs but not of them quite hit the spot and I got into the leon to drive home and was just so happy, so instead of spending £350 -£550 per month I saved it and upgraded the leon.

I’m stood on that slope and it’s very slippery, someone must have poured oil on it!
