  1. Shell diesel vs supermarket diesel

    I ran mine on Asda diesel for a little while as it was so so cheap at the time compared to even the normal shell stuff and it was horrible, used way more fuel and was doing DPF regens all the time. Switched to the normal shell stuff and its miles better, more MPG and fewer regens. I sit on...
  2. Cupra 300 vs Fiesta ST ?

    Going against the grain...if I needed a small second car that was fun to drive the Fiesta would be top of my list. Have zero issues with Fords and they are meant to be great little cars. So much so that when the wife passes her driving test am thinking of 'giving' her the Leon and getting a...
  3. Wheel arch plastic and underbody plastics

    Mine went in the exact same place a couple of weeks ago. Had this horrendous noise coming from the wheel arch on full lock and immediately thought the worst. Checked there and there was a massive bit of it hanging off directly into the wheelarch. Relieved and annoyed as that shouldnt be...
  4. Dickheads with dash cams

    I bought one after being one car behind a massive accident on the motorway - the guy at fault was a complete knob about it and had I had one at the time it would have saved a lot of hassle and backwards and forwards with the police. No need to use any evidence myself yet luckily but it is nice...
  5. Poor fuel consumption.

    Your MPG for doing mainly town driving sounds about right, if you wanted good MPG in town a small petrol or even electric would have been a much better choice. It is going to kill the DPF too, don't be surprised if you have to cough up for a replacement in the not to distant future as it will...
  6. MP3 / Music Play & Streaming Options on Mk3 Leon

    Mine is a 2016 plate registered in April of that year and it has full link and Android Auto on it. I think it might be 2016 that it came in so you might get lucky and find one with it
  7. I’ve messed up I need help

    Do you know what the issue was? Might be good to know if someone else is in the same position.
  8. Is it possible to control the touchscreen in the 2019 model with the driving wheel?

    Nope I dont have the digital cockpit. You can change tracks with the button on the steering while, I think if you push the wheel it might mute the sound too. The voice control on Android Auto is very good, long hold of the voice button the steering wheel and it will use google assistant...
  9. Is it possible to control the touchscreen in the 2019 model with the driving wheel?

    What are you trying to do? Whilst driving I find that I can do most of what I want from the steering wheel without having to use the touchscreen
  10. Mk3 184 diesel FR, what to look for.

    Done over 40k in mine in 3.5 years and there nothing major to report. It just seems to do what I need it to do very well...
  11. Help me choose please! Leon FRs...

    With used prices like that I wouldnt be looking to lease, it just doesnt seem worth it. I drove a 150 TDI before I got the 184 and it really did feel lacking, can imagine the MPG would be insane though. My commute is about 50 miles a day with about the same annual mileage as you mention, and...
  12. What tracker/immobilisers are people using?

    Most insurers will give you money off if you have a tracker fitted, this time I had to send them proof that the subscription was active but that wasnt too much effort. I also got 20 quid off my renewal for having a dashcam fitted which I didnt think was too bad
  13. Will new MK4 Leon have a powerful diesel engine?

    The new Audi S4 and I think S5 are diesel only, so I dont think it is dead. Saying that it doesnt necessarily mean Seat will offer it for the new Leon...
  14. What brand wipers do you use?

    Bosch on mine too and zero issues. Not sure what was on there before but they were awful, the rear especially would judder and make a horrible noise everytime I used it from the moment I got the car until it got changed over
  15. Mountune for VW group?

    If it doesnt keep the warranty its not a big deal imo. From experience their stuff is overpriced, that's if they ever have it in stock!
  16. Waze and Android Auto

    No issues with it taking a while to start, but know what you mean about the routes. Once I am on the road though its fine, think it takes longer to get a GPS signal than google maps as that uses the cars GPS antenna whereas waze uses the one on the phone. Sometimes a quick unplug and back in...
  17. Discounted Compact Dashcam

    The reduced price seems good, at full price though I think it would be possible to do quite a lot better than that.
  18. Leon FR 184, Cupra, Golf GTD

    It does sound a bit tractor\taxi on a cold start, but that soon dies off. Someone at work said to me once that they thought I had changed to the exact same car but with a petrol engine because it sounded so un-diesel like. It does have some turbo whistle which is actually quite nice with the...
  19. Leon FR 184, Cupra, Golf GTD

    Yeh thats for the 184FR. I fill it up once every 1.5 weeks now rather than the 4 days that I used to have to do on the old car :banghead: Annoying sounds like creaks and rattles? Can't say there has been anything major, there is the odd little rattle from the dash but not enough to bother me...
  20. Leon FR 184, Cupra, Golf GTD

    You're going to miss the power of the Cupra for sure but it is something that you get used to. Was in the same situation as you a couple of years ago, starting doing a 50 mile round trip for my commute and the fuel costs were just prohibitive (£300+ a month). But if you're doing motorway miles...
