Having only had the car a week very little has changed. Audis were always my go to car when trading in but when we had our little one I decided to buy a Seat Ateca Se technology in august which is our main car due to the size and how much car you get for your money.
We needed a second car so I set out looking for a white Leon Fr but it had to be the 2.0 tdi 184 engine which I found a couple of weeks ago near Manchester and here she is. The interior is immaculate with hardly a scratch insight.

first up I set about debadging the rear so that it looks less cluttered and I also fit some gloss black film to the rear emblem.
I am also thinking for getting the lower grey/black plastic wrapped in gloss black.

After receiving quite a heavy quote for the plate recess and lower bar to be wrapped I decided to give it a go myself.
The lower grill was an absolute pain to remove.

Today was the first wash I gave her giving me a chance to inspect the paint work for any scratches or dents properly as I don’t think you know a car until you have gave it a good wash.
Thankfully other then the odd stone chip I have struggled to find anything apart from requiring a full detail and minor paint correction which I would do anyways. I couldn’t believe the amount of tar , so when time permits I will have the wheels off , carry out a decontamination, clay bar polish and seal etc.
today i removed the years worth of dirt around the glass, the head lights and all the groves using an old card and cloth.

Have you thought about dechroming your grille surround fully black pack the front end. I had mine wrapped. Bit more contrast against your white bonnet

They are the Spielberg Alloys from a Golf R or GTI. Thought they looked almost standard and suit it

numbers plates fitted late last night after having a nightmare with the log book and TRC front splitter ordered 😁.
Bought some fresh screws and caps for the numbers plates however the old screw holes were too big I am going to have to order some more
