    Fife SEAT, have looked after my Cupra 280 (which they sold me new) for over 6 years now and I have had no problems at all, great dealer.

    DSg Cupra 290 vs manual Cupra 290

    Short answer yes. The manual gear changes can be messed up or not perfect, DSG always had a quicker time claimed for 0 - 60 when comparing the same model with manual.

    COVID and impact on your SEAT/CUPRA ownership?

    Worked from home till August, then back to the office as I had problems with no printers, slow wifi and no space to work safely and workload building up. The office is all one way and seperate zones for work areas, but at least I get a drive in the car now.

    Will i pass the mot

    And they are all illegal, that is why the Leon Cupras have small plastic fins on the wheel arches as they come standard with the 19" wheels, and need them to be road legal.

    Cupra - 2014 faulty turbo

    My stock 2014 280 is now past 6 years and still the turbo is ok, hope I am not tempting fate here, as only got less than a year now to hopefully get into a new Cupra Leon full petrol motor

    Fuel Gauge broken!

    Sat Nav Functions

    I was the same when I bought my Cupra 280, where are the speed cam warnings, but alas I had none. I think as having speed cam detectors get big fines in europe as illegal, that is why there are none, spanish car after all

    Scuffed Cupra 300 Alloy

    Solvol Autosol is what to use between the sand/emery paper to give a better finish before the lacquer stage. Have fixed lots of scuffs, chips etc this way and for 6 years old still look not too bad.

    Key fob battery replacement issue

    I have changed my fob battery and used panasonic and had no problems, sounds like you have broke yours on opening it rather than a battery fault.
