I dont think its 'bad' I just think their is a lot of people on here who take theirselves a bit too serious. I could easily 'afford' a Cupra never mind an FR, but I couldn't justify the extra expence of buying it, consumption and insurance etc. Plus I thought the FR suspension was a bit too...
Same seats jst the FR has the FR logo on the seats.
I went for the ref sport tdi with Aero kit instead of an FR. Dnt regret it 1 bit. Cheaper insurance and IMO looks way better than a standard FR. Insides arnt exactly too dissimilar tbh.

Its between the Goodyear Asymmetric's and the Vredestein Sessanta's for me.
Personally i think im gonna go for the Vredestein's. Look the nuts, really good reviews, good in wet and dry and for 225/40/18's there £100 delivered which are around a tenner cheaper than the Goodyear's.
Having had a Mk3 1.4 Ibiza .cool, a Mk1 Leon Cupra R and a Mk4 Ibiza Cupra TDI. I decided I needed a change. So I went for a 2007 Mk2 Leon Reference Sport 140 with the BTCC kit (Aero).
All I wanna say is wow what a car. Its in excellent condition and compared to my last cars this...
My Ibiza Cupra TDI is approaching it's 60,000 mile / 6 Year service soon and wondering the exact parts I need to do it and what it involves?
I have had my cambelt and waterpump with tensioner done around 5,000 miles ago so don't need to include that in the service :D
I was going...
It is possibly the worst thing you can have (IMO)
Ever since I got it in my LCR I didn't take my eyes off it, especially when it read 14.9 :cry: Always trying to get it as high (or low :cartman:) as I could
Since I'v got my Ibiza Cupra TDI, well :p
WOW is it gold plated :wtf:
You need to take it off and clean it mate. Garage will only be saying you need to replace it to charge more. If you take it off, give it a real good clean, then put it back on (I used some Redex (or millers) additive engine cleaner aswell), run it for a bit then...
Wasn't an Ibiza but I had a LCR and I got around 30-32mpg, but that was mainly motorway and 60 roads.
Depends how many miles u do tbh. If its more than say 250 a week i'd go 4 the diesel, but if not, go 4 the petrol.
Ive got a diesel Ibiza Cupra now and loving the consuption! :D
Dnt know bout the manifold, but the EGR is easy to remove, however the bolts are in the most awkward of places. Use a blanking plate (piece of metal cut to suit will do) and 'blank it' between the EGR and the pipe connecting on the underside of the EGR.
