Great car and colour (not that i'm bias haha)

I'd maybe advise you to blank out your number plates for pictures just to prep for worst case that someone may clone your plates as this is a public forum :)

You got yourself any goodies yet?

Cheers

Haha no sleep for you either then, the sound depends on a few things I think. On mine (GPF as well) it's the same volume as my MK2 Cupra R (Stock) on startup (See the review of the loan car we had for a while) but once moving it definitely isn't as loud (with the Soundaktor off), I don't normally use the flappy paddles or manual gear changes so couldn't tell you about pop and bangs dropping down gears but the exhaust has got louder by small amounts as it got more bedded in.

I wouldn't expect big pops and bangs on gear changes etc (might be different for the hatch), for me it sounds great but i'm not a fan of loudness these days haha

I got it on Friday at about 10:30am and uploaded the pics this morning, it sounds great, you won’t hear the sound properly unless your moving and in Cupra mode, just sitting there it’s purrs really nicely though!
if you put it in manual and drop through the gears you get some nice pops and bangs and it sounds nice and throaty! I’m yet to hear some DSG farts as I’ve not been on a road where I can really go for it!
but you’ll love the car, this is my first performance car and it’s a dream to drive at any speed!
