I've got a leased '19 Cupra 290. It's done ~6700 miles and is about 14 months old. Lease is 24 months duration with ALD. The oil service notification has just appeared.
Can someone explain the whole 'fixed interval' vs 'long-life' servicing regime please? Doing some searching here it...

thanks in advance
It's your cars birthday. And what do cars love more than cake? That's right oil! So first let's assemble the tools you'll need. As well as a jack, axle stands and wheel chocks (or house bricks) you'll need:
Something to catch the oil!
Newspaper to avoid messing up your...
Hi guys and gals,
Just a quick guide today - how to fit a oil catch can for your engine. This is very simple and virtually anyone can do this with minimal tools. If you're wondering whether to bother fitting a catch can, google will explain much better than me, but essentially it helps capture...
Hi guys & gals,
A nice simple guide today on how to change your oil & filter at service time. I'll also show how to change the pollen filter.
I won't be talking about the air filter as I have a custom one on my car so there's nothing for me to change/clean just yet. Another point to note is...
Apologies if this has already come up. I've seen a couple of similar posts but nothing quite the same.
My oil temperature when driving normal is between 90 and 100 celcius.
When driving it hard after 10-30 minutes it would run up to 115 ish but then come back down to earth at 95-100...
Can somebody help me please?
What is the capacity of coolant and oil in my Leon Fr 2014 1.4TSI act 110kw?
And you think, that is good to change a coolant, when I will replace a water pump? Thanks
Hi chaps, I am currently in a bit of a pickle, I have a 2011 Seat Ibiza FR TSI DSG and ive just hit 50k miles, now, I have read online that the box is "Sealed for Life" and all that, but ive also read that it can be serviced and the oil and filter can be changed.
Is there any definitive answer...
Greetings, considering my Cupra has 230k km /143k miles and I will soon be getting a +30-40hp remap, what 5w40 oil brand do you recommend? One of the better options I have in my local shop are:
5W40 MOBIL Super 3000
5W40 Shell Helix Ultra
5W40 Castrol Magnatec C3
5W40 Castrol EDGE TITANIUM Turbo...
Greetings, I am in the process of becoming a Leon Cupra Mk2 owner. I found a very good example which has been taken care of. It has been tuned by official Revo dealer in my country and it puts out around 330hp/290whp on the dyno. Owner says he used 5w30 before but for last few years he puts in...
I’m a bit past 30,000 miles and have read that a VAQ Differential Service is Required.
I am looking at probably doing the DSG oil service a little earlier than the recommended 40,000 miles but am confused as I have been told by one garage that the VAQ Differential “shares” oil from the DSG...
Was just changing my dipstick tube as the old one snapped in half. A couple/few bits of the plastic crumbled off down the tube into the sump.
The bits were only 1-5mm big. I'm thinking shouldn't be much of a problem - will either melt or get crushed up if they make it past the pick up/oil...
Hi guys I posted this earlier but think it was in the wrong place.
2008 leon fr tdi 2.0 170bhp
Using a lot of oil (1 litre every 300 miles average) blue smoke pumping out of the back of it lazy start up, lumpy idle and no power now at all.
Started about 3 months ago blue smoke coming out of...
Please help me out! My Seat Leon 1.2 TSI 2014 started consuming too much oil since last service.
Approximately it consumes 1 litre for every 500km which is too much; I usually top up 1 liter every 2000km.
Current mileage is 146,000km
Did anyone experience similar problem?
As the title states, what should be the oil pressure on a rebuilt engine with the original oil pump on a 5w40 oil 500miles into break in @ 100C oil temp and 90sth water temp during idle? The engine spun a bearing if that matters.
