    Cupra 300 exhaust

    Cupra 280 Steering Knock

    My 280 has developed a knocking noise. Mainly when reversing on full right hand lock, I asked my dealer to take a look at a recent service but they couldn't find anything wrong but it is gradually getting worse. Anyone got any ideas? CV joint? Steering column failure?

    AKROPVIC EXHAUST TIPS STOLEN OFF CAR

    Wouldn’t happen to be a country house hotel just north west of Gatwick would it? This story sounds very similar to a colleague of mine story from over Xmas time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ménière’s Disease & owning a Cupra

    It’s not so much not being allowed the drive a Cupra, it’s the owning one and not being able to enjoy it properly. Will have to call my insurance later today, been putting it off all week so my car has just been sitting there doing nothing gathering dust! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ménière’s Disease & owning a Cupra

    Slightly different post to the norm and not really sure if this is the correct part of the forum, however I am just putting some feelers out for info if anyone has any experience in the matter. Unfortunately this week I was diagnosed with Ménière’s Disease, I know I will need to inform my...

    What is the best MK3 Cupra? / Cupra Buying Advice

    Have you tried indicating right when they start to pull over? I love my ACC and don’t really want another car without it but it doesn’t seem to be catching on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What is the best MK3 Cupra? / Cupra Buying Advice

    I second this... wish I had bought a pre facelift 290. It’s the sweet spot in the range as I’m not a fan of the fog lights on the facelift Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    what did you and your mk3 leon do today

    Just seen that there was a thread about this a while back which I heavily contributed to... apologies. I have a 5 week old child, I don’t remember my own name at the moment! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    what did you and your mk3 leon do today

    I do indeed. Centre silencer is gone already so if I get a 290 back box then that gives me a 290 set up on the 280 and is the same back box as the clubsport S (I think). I have read that the 280 has a 2.75inch system and the 290 has a 3inch?? The resonator is 100% staying, drone would do my...

    what did you and your mk3 leon do today

    Didn’t want to start another exhaust thread! Does anyone know if the 290 back box will fit directly onto a 280? Fancy a bit more of a sporty sound without paying the earth for a system. I did put this on the Facebook group but you don’t get any replies unless you’re talking about res deletes...

    Clicking noise on car after a run ..

    Is it not just the engine/ exhaust clicking or ticking itself cool after a long run when it would have been very hot? My car does this often when it’s been very hot Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tuning garages near Kent (JF, AmD, TC)

    Depending on where you are in Kent and how willing you’re to travel. KAP in Folkestone do tuning and have a rolling road. I played the dyno lottery with them and was impressed with their set up. I think they use ecu maps from various companies and then fine tune them on the day to suit your...

    Cupra R ST

    Dear o dear! The brakes thing is probably them being lazy on the Cupra website. Still no excuse, they should know better. On the R ST page you can click a link to ‘specs’ and there it says 340mm brakes but if you scroll to the top the page is linked to a standard ST page. At least it was like...

    Lookers Seat have never heard of front diff

    You’d think yes but doesn’t seem to happen. I’ve been back to mine twice after servicing as they didn’t do my dsg oil then didn’t do my spark plugs... all for an inflated price. Wonderful Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cupra R ST

    If the UK spec car comes with ACC I’ll sulk like a petulant child until I can afford one! Looks epic! Shame WLTP means this flagship models will be slower than the Carbon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lookers Seat have never heard of front diff

    It’s embarrassing that main dealers have no clue about what they are selling. I’ve had similar issues with my dealer, they knew all the various bits and pieces were present, just no idea of when to service them! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    what did you and your mk3 leon do today

    Productive morning, gave the car a quick vacuum, topped up the oil and kerbed my alloy!!! wonderful :cry: Been toying with the idea of getting them refurbed anyway as they were done by the garage I bought the car from 2 years ago and it was mobile van jobby so the finish was never great, might...
