Does anyone know if the mk2 leons have a low oil warning/ top up oil light?

My 06 octavia vrs had this (amber oil light to indicate 1l top up needed)
And so does my 07 audi a3

I dont remember my mk2 cupra having one?

I don't believe it does. I think it's just oil pressure which is of no use really.

I'd never plan to "drive by the lights" - do the smart thing and check the under bonnet fluids on a regular basis.

My 2011 Audi B8 S4 didn't come with a dip stick, I sorted that out very quickly!

This is what I do, I try and check every time I clean the cars. Which is normally weekly or at worst every two weeks. I also do the tyres and other fluids at the same time.

I get that

Just nice to know if it did prewarn me

My old cupra drank oil which i suspect was the turbo seals after i fitted a decat pipe and our driveway is not level so makes it annoying to drive somewhere flat to do my fluid checks

Before i used to do it at the weekly shop but i always looked like my car had problems lol

Well my mate has 2018 T-Roc or Troc 1.5TSI and its low oil warning came on the other day, which annoyed his slightly as he had checked the oil when he washed the car the day before, and now the oil level was still okay, so these monitoring systems can throw out error warnings which the dip stick will not.

We can only go on our own experiences i suppose , i do check where i can but its a nice back up feauture if a long journey was to occur , i could do a litre of oil in less than 200mile if i was hard on the car so if i was on a long journey i could quite easily run it to a dangerous level even though id check/top up my turbo seals where that bad, just wierd how every other vag brand has this warning except for seat
