Good looking car, I have an identical one in the urban silver! I traded an FR in for mine, so the performance for me is an improvement. I did test drive an 18 plate 300 which was excellent, but couldn’t stretch (without a lot of grief from the boss at home) to the mk4 300. Loving the car, except for the few infotainment irritations, certainly not enough to put me off keeping it though. I’ve added after market heated seats, the same company that added them to my FR, excellent job and well worth the £495.
Are the wire’s already fitted?

I’m not sure, but it only takes around 90 minutes per seat and that includes trim removal etc. Neat switch fitted where the electric seat controls go in the VZ3. Boundary Car Care in St Helen’s, some info on their website

The sill blades look excellent, does anyone know if they’re available as a genuine accessory?
Sure it must be available through a dealer as a replacement part. I can try to contact mine to ask for OEM number.

It's a good point wished they put them on otherwise a cupra leon just looks like a seat leon from the side surely the market needs identifying mine come without unfortunately.
Color, front bumper, and wheels do the job ;)

I know on Ebay you can get the Orange Decals for the Bumper and Seat Direct parts you can get the Copper wheels but the side skirts appear to make these cars unique, even Cupra Official site they Advertise the Cupra leon with the Side Sill blades. Wonder if it what they are releasing these now for 2022 -2023? But it would be really unfair to Make 2020 and early 2022 releases with the Cupra First Edition with these on and miss out on 2021 Manufactured.

In Latvia, we don't have VZ1-2-3 editions. Just VZ with almost all included as standard, but side skirts were available only as an extra (~350 EUR)
This year became available VZ Cup with copper wheels, side skirts and leather included as standard.

Wow wish the Uk was like that bumped into a long friend when he seen the car said my friend just bought the Seat Leon, until i had to show him the front he didn't know what cupra was, the problem with marketing they have targeted Europe and left other country's in the Unknown thus why im the only one that owns a Cupra Leon think i seen 3 altogether in the NE of England and nobody is getting them as they don't recognize them its 😥

I’ve put the CUPRA copper alloys on mine and it really lifts it. The sill blades would finish it off though, painted in the same darker grey of the door mirrors.

Nice mate yep copper accent really lifts these cars up on the alloys and the side blades in a darker grey. Shame as lavia gets them now as standard wonder how many years it will be before the uk gets some love 🤔

I searched for the part numbers but they're out of stock everywhere.

One side trim (primed) is around 160€. On top of that, you'll need to paint them, 4 threaded studs and some glue, I believe.

310 4drive version, have it since 2023 february 15th. After 5 slalom events:
  1. lateral grip is impressive with computers distributing power, pressing random wheel brakes and adjusting suspension
  2. launch is almost bonkers - reaches 50km/h before first turn almost instantly
  3. no handbrake - 360 turns are pain in the ass - with hard left foot braking to unload the rear and sudden steering input + hard on gas - rotates, mostly, 80% of the time works every time, but hard to be precise and predict what car will do - really tanks overall time compared to handbrake turn or even lift off oversteer for FWD versions
  4. automatic upshifts in manual mode - omfg, the worst **** ever. Have to film and rewatch first run to see in which corners it upshifts and then downshift manually (or just spam downshift paddle while driving? that's the volkswagen way?), because I have no idea in which gear I am, because:
  5. shporty foky cupra display with big tachometer is completely useless - in the middle it displays speed - who gives a **** about speed in sporty display? I want gear number up top and big, but instead gear is displayed at the very bottom in tiny font and usually not "1" or "2", but "1 > 3" or "2 > 4" for ******* eco tips, are you ******* kidding me. Useless crap, might as well have no display
Other than that - stock default brakes are holding well for these events, don't get to drive so frequently in an event to need Brembos.

Summer is coming, will see how this fat piggy will do in time attack events - the issue with handbrake and auto upshifts will not be a factor there, should do better.

Hope I can describe this clearly, when unlocking the car I've seen videos of the width wide light bar lighting up (in a Knightrider stylee), does this not happen on the UK cars?
