Doesn't sound too bad mate, if they are going to pay half the price, I would see if they will agree for a Seat dealer to do it, then you get the two year fitted part warranty. :)

Sounds like it's worth a look, all depends on price.

Just make sure you do your homework on what to look for. ;)


They said they have a garage at the dealership said everyone who has rang aboput it has asked bout the camblet they said its a £200 job from them and they would only want £100 to do it aswell as there do waterpump aux belt and put a full cambelt kit on it. price of the car with 70k in £5689


yea so might be goin down tomorrow to have a gander and testdrive it. only prob is its a good hour and a half away.

Really interesting read!

So does every cupra R come with folding mirrors?

sort of.

both the 225 and 210 are cupra R's.

210s were early cupra Rs, then later they had an update, and 225bhp.
this thread is to try and show the differences between the 210 and 225 models.
Whats the differences between the cupra-r and the cupra??? i know theres a leon that came with 180bhp but that has the ko3 setup doesnt it, wasnt sure if that is the cupra aswell?

Read forum for quiet some time but not posted for a while, I have a question about the EGT, are these the same on both the 210 and 225? I have looked and can not find any definitive answer to this. The reason I ask is that I have a 225 and locally there is a 210 being broken for parts so rather than pay for the part and it not fit/work correctly I thought it best I ask the people with the knowledge.

Any help greatly appreciated
