Thumbs up Syphon's 2017 MK3 LEON CUPRA 300

So after a gap without my 280, I'm pleased my 300 has finally arrived.

Car spec:

- Standard 300 DSG Five door

I picked it up this week, with the wait being made much harder after driving the new model at the media launch.

Thanks to IMG Warrington for leaving all the delivery packaging on so I could take it in for its detailing, and Gtechniq coating like I did with my 280.

The work was done to an excellent standard as ever by Matt at System Clenz in Weston-super-Mare. I highly recommend him and the team if you are in the area - and even if you aren't it's worth the trip.

The car is now protected for 5 years and will be much easier to clean and keep looking super shiny - no mean feat with a white car.

Matt is going to send me over some in progress shots which I'll add to this thread later. In the mean-time here's some photos of her in all her glory.

Yes everything was protected. Went for the New Car Pain Protection : Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light package - topped with EXOv3 and Gtechniq Clearvision G1 All Glass http://www.systemclenz.co.uk/gtechniq/

Matt kindly replaced the CUPRA badge for me with one I had pre-ordered already in black.

More pictures (including interior below)

Display screen

Anything else Syphon?

Looks sweet!

The usb ports are in the cubby under the centre console which is better than in the glovebox.

All the little storage trays have a removable grippy rubber which is nice.

I had an SC last time which didn't have the read centre arm rest, not sure if that is new or was on the pre facelift 5 doors.

The headrests are all in fake leather. Last one they were alcantara.

Mirror is smaller without the button and lights for auto dimming.

Door cards are significantly better quality with alcantara and a narrower strip for the lighting.

Yes I love them.

I think the extra bling is why the car is turning a lot more heads than the last one did.

They look a lot more 'flash' than the ore facelift and I really can't think why!

Hopefully my grey will be more subtle, but even that looks pretty smart from pics I've seen.

Can agree, I think the previous Cupra is more of a sleeper.

The 300 is more Flashy. I did like the white in the interiour in the 290, more so as white is
the distinct cupra colour.

looking good and congrats

front end I like and ultra modern.

do you know if the front bumper is the same shape as the older one? could you carry over a TRC splitter from non facelift to a 17/18 facelifted car?

Interior looks great and more subtle without the white stripe. I like the carbon fabric touches.

Thanks. I'm not sure. I am wondering that myself.

I will try and find out.

Ta. I had white last time and originally was going for silver, then blue then back to white at the last minute. Couldn't make up my mind.
