I had the 150 engine in an Ibiza for 3 years/30k miles.
In general day to day stuff,mainly short trips,the mpg was always around 40.
On a longer run it was very easy to get over 50.
Ibiza was obviously lighter than a Leon so I would say consistent with your figures and OK,if you want better get...
To avoid most of the above issues the best plan is to keep a good wax coating on the car so that dirt and other contaminants don’t stick and are easily removed by a normal wash.
I do this by using Aqua Wax ( or similar products) after every other weekly wash,having used a good quality shampoo...
I’m sure you need more offset with the spoke design on the TD wheels to clear the big brakes,so ET 40/42 I believe.
With tight figments like these I would go to a big wheel supplier,like Demon Tweaks,so they can do a trial fit for you before you buy!
That’s what I recall being said,but in the context of 18” wheels just managing to clear rather than having to stay with 19s.
I also think that you need to have ET40 offset,and you will be going to 235/40/18 tyres.
Peoples individual opinions don't count for a lot because they don't have experience of every tyre available.
Look up the winter tyre tests.They rate each tyres performance in different conditions,so if snow traction is the most important to you then obviously go for the a tyre that comes top in...
Still sold short IMO.
As stated above,a road drive would have been more appropriate than abusing it off road.
...and the interior criticism was silly,it’s not supposed to be a cheap hot hatch like a Fiesta ST.
Plus too many of the usual smart arse “I’m such a clever presenter”remarks,just stick...
Don't know much about the past models.Of course all vRS petrol are 245 now, and the standard seats are cloth/ alcantara as I said and aremanual. The upgraded seats, which you only get on the Challenge vRS, are alcantara/leather (or vinyl?) and electric.However the overall shape of the seats are...
I think I have said on here that I no longer have the Carbon edition.My daughter's partner was happy to buy it.
It went because the wife found the seat cushions of the Cupra's bucket seats hard and lumpy (I could have tolerated them but knew what she meant).
Anyway,we now have an Octavia vRS...
Like the 370 badge!
Anyone see "Traffic Cops" this week?
If so you may have noticed that Derbyshire Police were using an unmarked dark grey Cupra 300 ST.
My Police informant tells me that some of their drivers prefer it to a Golf R!
