hey i have a seat ibiza cupra 2000, I have a mate who has crashed his Cupra R and he is selling the parts , was wondering what are the main differences, and what parts are worth takeing? or is it just the mapping thats different between a cupra and a R ?, i am not interested in the turbo as i already have a GT2560R fitted,

thanks in advance.

hi there mate been coverd before but i will tell you as i have a cupra r[B)]
1) 16" oz supper t alloys
2) brembo bakes
3) red seat belts
4) carbon engine cover
5) stifer suspension
6) r badges (obviously)+ ibiza spaced out along tailgate
7) seat sport half leather seats (seat sport emblem stitched into seat )
8) wider track not too sure by how much
9) 2 gauges in center console volt and oil temp
10)blue indicator bulbs lol

and one more thing to add is it aint the turbo which is different just the ecu however some have ko3s turbos if your lucky like mine :p .think thats it anyone else care to add anything ive missed ?
and as for things that you should salvage defo brembos and wheels a must :funk:

Sorry Dave i know im slacking now! Ok then, "The Cupra R are produces a healthy 180bhp from its 1.8litre 20valve turbo charged engine. A mild factory map achieves this healthy figure over its little brother the cupra". All from my own head just for you dave;)

Btw there is a sticky on this written up by Hooch somewhere

Yes mate, straight swap, but you would need the braided brake lines aswell i think and possibily the carriers!
