:mad::mad: I only ordered my VZ2 3 weeks ago and was told there wasn't going to be the Beats audio option anytime soon for the UK. It's the one thing I would have specced.

Like the look of the Asphalt Blue a lot. Just checked the configurator and I can see the base price is now over 40k for the vz2 310ps. What was it before the price increase as that sticks it straight into the expensive tax bracket.

How does the extra VED thing work for over 40k cars, does the dealer declare to the DVLA when registering the car what the RRP was? with regular price increases I can't imagine the DVLA keeping track of it all as you could order a car <40k but by the time it arrives the price may well be >40k.

Also note that DSG equipped cars get the heated s/wheel, do they even do a manual Cupra Leon?

Hi. Not sure about the other bits but no manual CUPRA Leon currently.

I believe the VED goes by the full RRP invoice price when the car is built from factory

Hopefully this isn't too off topic. But we just got our formentor after a screen replacement. During that we had a loan car, cupra Leon. And I've noticed that while in comfort mode in the formentor the car will not break by itself and charge when letting go off the pedal. But when in comfort mode in the cupra Leon it did. It works in every other mode, and it's really not a big deal but I've gotten used to the car breaking by itself and kinda miss it. Any ideas?

Hi - probably worth asking in the Formentor forum.

Cheers,

I liked the look of the asphalt blue (online) however seeing instagram pics of it in real life, i'm thinking not so much... i might be calling the dealer to change order before they put it through tomorrow.. it looks nothing like the online configuration colour

I have seen a few Ibiza and aronas at the dealers after I ordered and I am not sold on it, but I couldn’t get the colour I wanted without hitting the higher tax band.
There is a YouTube video of a asphalt blue Formentor and in the sunlight it looks a nice colour.
