1. 1.4 150 petrol vs 2.0 184 diesel

    Hi, Was wondering if anyone has driven both of these FR petrol and diesel models? How do they compare? They both have very similar 0-60s on paper even though the diesel has 34 more BHP and a lot more torque which confused me a little.

    Would you px your Cupra Petrol for a Cupra TDI if...?

    Hey folks, So i've been offered a tantalising (does anyone ever use that word?) deal... A Cupra TDI same year as mine (ok if we are being pedantic its a few months newer), roughly same miles (20K) etc. BUT I'd have to pay £2000 on top for it. Clearly the question is , how long...

    Looking at the FR as a potential car. I've read engine will remap to 190ish is that correct? How would it fair against a 17/82 Clio?? What's a rough 0-60 time for a remapped FR? (I know 0-60 means very little) I was after a Clio for a while but decided I want boost so want to know how they...

    Petrol flap

    Just a question to gauge what you guys think. Does any one else here perhaps think that the petrol flap should have been flush with the body and not have the little exposed section where you put your finger in to open it? I still can't decide if it is ok or not. Just looking at the rear of the...
