Dear All,

New to Group, Been into V.A.G all My life, over 30 yrs worth of many many happy days, stories and great great motors.

New to Cupra, but not Seat, fancied something different, Fast, Practical, FWD, Well Spec'd, Fun & Un-common, Too many Golf R's out there, although a Great car, Hence why the Cupra ST R, on its way, pretty rare :thumbup:

So, Anything i need to know?
Easy wins?
Absolute musts?
any productive advice or links to other threads would be Most Welcome :)

Very much looking forward to getting Cupra'd UP ! :drive1::flag:

Thanks in Advance...:wave:

Welcome to the forum

It's quite dangerous asking for threads to spend your money lol we like spending other people's cash so you may get a few ideas haha

Im not sure on the R ST setup over the Mk3 Leon Cupra and as I own a MK2 Cupra R I'm not much use to you either haha but I see alot of people changing tyres for ps4s's nd upgrading engine mounts... I assume having the R you have the carbon splitter and diffuser lol

2 readers rides you may want to look at... There will be more!

First is a non ST R done by @paddy6789 for any hints and tips - https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/2018-leon-cupra-r.447420/

Then you have the R ST from @KernelOkey with some nice mods - https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/leon-cupra-r-st.453368/
