    New CUPRA ATECA Limited Edition prices and specs with ABT Pack option

    Why so expensive over there? You're paying $NZ88,000 for an LE with the Akrapovic system, mine was listed at $78900 plus ORC and I got 3 years interest free finance and a free towbar. That's the equivalent of $7000 off list. All 5 we got were sold in a couple of weeks, I grabbed the last one.

    Cupra R ABT issues

    Really? Over 300 on SEAT's engine dyno? You don't seem to understand that all dynos differ from day to day. Even run to run. If you had real experience in the motor trade you'd know this. Instead of getting sucked into internet wisdom. I find not taking vehicle mods seriously can result in...

    How do I find what my tyre pressure should be?

    The tyre plaque is very clear. The figures below the front or rear wheels on the picture are the ones you apply to those wheels. Get a decent tyre gauge and go by that, don't rely on gas station gauges. Use manufacturers pressures, they developed the car.

    Cupra R ABT issues

    A standard Cupra will not make 300 hp when running on 95 (as allowed by VAG), the ECU is protecting the engine on the lower octane fuel. Would you return your car in this situation? Many people on here simply to not understand that vehicle manufacturers always have to consider litigation if they...

    Remapping

    So every single clutch on Cupras has failed? I doubt it. My point is that some people have mechanical sympathy and driving skill, many don't and kill their cars.

    I'd be careful cleaning the port with a pin. I nearly stuffed up my radar detector doing that. An aerosol air duster is much safer.

    Cupra R ABT issues

    Well, the standard car is capable of far more than 300hp, but that's what they give you. One of the reasons being that they are considering car durability. The car is not marketed as a track day special, if that's what you want, do it at your discretion with whatever upgrades you want without...

    Maybe an end in sight for Kangaroo jerking...

    Same here. The SEAT dealer will only apply updates if a problem is reported by the customer. This doesn't apply to nav system updates, there are three free yearly ones. Factory recalls are done as a matter of course. Mine's getting the indicator fix his week.

    Cupra R ABT issues

    It depends on which temp sensor they are working from. I'll order the ABT option on my next Cupra as long as it's under $NZ2k mainly because it carries a SEAT backed warranty. I'm not that keen on other systems unless I can get it custom mapped and that is starting to get expensive. Besides, our...

    It's not a given that your clutch will die. You might not be as hamfisted (footed) as some people. Why not try and see?

    Mine has been stable on my P20 Pro and in the last few months my P30 Pro. It seems very cable sensitive, I'm using U Green cables from aliexpress and they seem consistent. I haven't tried it since the last AA update, so fingers crossed for tonights road trip. The OP could try a head unit reset...

    Cupra R ABT issues

    The tests I've seen show around a half second improvement in 0 - 60 times. Unless you're in a very hot climate, or race your car often, that's OK by me.

    Do you know what temps the ABT is measuring? You may be able to trick the sensor.

    Cupra R ABT issues

    Yes, inertial dynos. But they are subject to forces that a proper engine dyno isn't, tyre slippage, alignment of the car on the rollers, etc. Hub dynos are a bit better in that regard.
