View attachment 14911 Hi all, my name is AK, based in Lincolnshire, currently driving a Leon FR 184 TDI Mk3. Love it to bits and joined to get in some discussions and gain some knowledge due to looking to upgrade performance and exterior styling.

Looking forward to joining in!
Welcome to the community :)

Be sure to head on over to the MK3 Leon forums to meet with like-minded people!

Cheers

Nice car, I’ve got exactly the same as you. Is your a Manual or DSG?

Lovely looking alloys you've got on yours! I went for the manual as I just find them that little bit more fun to drive personally, what about yours?

Mines a DSG. Always prefer autos for 85% of my driving. What you thinking of doing with yours?

I had a remapped planned prior to the lockdown so hopefully crack on with that when possible, then just a few exterior changes, lower body kit and some tints possibly! have you made any changes to yours?

It has the Front grill wrapped in Black, Debadged the Leon Boot Badge,
(Discreet maxton rear valance going on on Monday).
Spielberg Alloys,
Rear Roof spoiler,
Front TRC splitter,
Front fog tints
Remapped to circa 230bhp
(Sorry bit of a list)

Gotta be one of the best looking FR’s I’ve seen now you’ve posted the pics, looks superb, definitely hoping mine will look half as good! Cracking detail job aswell bringing out the shine

Thanks for your kind words, glad you like it, really chuffed.Just wanted it to be fairly discreet in the mods but wanted it to look more special than when I got it. This forums great for knowledge and ideas and what parts to get and where from. The only thing left I’d like to do is swap the nav to the newer version with CarPlay and bigger screen but got lost in the feeds about whether it’s actually possible

Done a super job, I had a look at the TRC front splitter after you mentioned it and its actually one of the cheaper and better looking options which is good news compared to other splitters. Did you tint the fogs yourself?

Im not too sure on the nav system, I have the technology pack with mine so I currently have carplay and a bigger screen, its a good extra so if possible id definitely go for it :)

Mine has the Tech Pack too but the older media system so still al good would just like car play. Mine has the USB in the glovebox, yours must be under the climate control. It’s decent having a Black car as a lot of the trims are gloss black

Correct under the C/C for me. Blacked the badges out the other day on mine but not too sure about it. And perfect thanks for the heads up been searching for the correct tints for the fogs but couldn’t find anywhere!

I’d ordered the wrong ones originally but someone on here helped me find the right ones. I’ve left my badges as they are as didn’t want to go too blacked out but removed the Leon off the boot and had the chrome trim wrapped on the grille as there is no other chrome on the car. I’m just hoping the rear valance looks ok when it gets fitted next week. Might put some side fins on but not sure yet (again nice and discreet). The pain in the arse bit of most mods is having to have them fitted which all adds up
