So after a brief time away from SEAT’s, I find myself back owning a CR170 FR.

Some of you may remember/recognise me from previous. I have been around for a number of years now having owned a 1.2TSi Mk2, CR170 FR+ and mk3 Leon cupra 290.

This time, I’m back in a 2011 mk2 CR170 FR+. It’s got 68k on the clock and full service history. It appears to be a ‘genuine’ car, which by that I mean it’s got a few scratches and dents! But it’s nearly 8 years old and it’ll by my run around alongside my C63 and Defender, so it was more important to me that it was mechanically sound rather than cosmetically.



Ultimately, I’ll go down a similar route to the previous regarding modifications, although it may take a little longer this time as it’s not my only car.

Yesterday I wasted no time in getting the laptop out and making some VCDS changes.

- Seat belt reminder turned off
- Lock/unlock beeps added (louder than I remember!)
- Rear wipe on reverse turned off
- Cornering lights turned off
- XDS enabled
- Hill hold enabled
- Digital mph enabled
- Staging enabled



Today I took the opportunity to fit my Pioneer stereo with DAB and Apple Car Play. Bit of a faff with the fascia not being the best fit, but it’s in and it all works. Even managed to wire through the USB to the centre console all neat.
