    Questioning whether there's really a point to owning a performance car these days?

    Must admit, I think track days are the way to go. Used to do sprints and autotests in a MKII Escort years ago (how I wish I still had it!) and it really helped. Caterhams are a bit expensive though :)

    Questioning whether there's really a point to owning a performance car these days?

    I love my Cupra (2019 290) and it feels great every time I get in it. however, had a day out to Rockingham Castle today and went past/through so many speed cameras, average speed sections/radar traps/vans that it makes you wonder if there's a point it it any more. I fully understand why the...

    what did you and your mk3 leon do today

    Does the panel filter give any more induction noise? I'm not looking for any power gains but a little bit more noise is always nice!

    That looks the absolute nuts! (I'm biased as it's the same colour as mine though) Love the copper inserts.

    Got some sunshine and a clean car so time for a picture of my matching new road bike. Complete coincidence that it's so close but I like it :)

    DSG question

    Take a look at my reply to your other post for my thoughts. I don't get the idea of accelerating before you want it to shift? Surely you'd be constantly accelerating? I'm talking about it downshifting for a bend here. If you are wanting to go up the box and accelerate to a higher speed then...

    New Cupra incoming, a couple of questions

    I've had my MY19 Cupra for a year and will admit it took quite a while to get used to the nuances of DSG and the auto handbrake. DSG is great in traffic queues as it works like a full auto but unless you take control of it is a bit laggy when you're doing anything more than just cruising along...

    Tyres

    How worn are they? Wouldn't have thought they would do it if quite new. Mine was tramlining badly but the Conti's were down to 3mm, they were ok when less worn, just got progressively worse as they wore down. Other possibility is a worn road surface. Mainly on the inside lanes where the...

    Tyres

    Well, I went for PS4S's in the end, fronts were down to 3mm (2019 Cupra 290) and things were a bit wayward... I'm super impressed with the feel of the Michelins over the Conti's. Has made it feel more like a proper hot hatch (hints of my Fiesta ST on turn-in now) so really happy.

    Recommendations for reliable trye fitters in the Bedford area?

    My long-time tyre fitter has left the tyre place I have used for years, a real shame as he always took good care of my wheels etc and I knew I could trust him to do a good job. Any recommendations for a good place to go would be much appreciated, preferably south of Bedford if possible...

    Rear hatch strut mod

    Back when my parents lived on a retirement village complex they built a garage block with up and over doors. They went up so fast you needed the reactions of a gnat to avoid being hit by the door - really useful when used exclusively by pensioners!
