Yesterday was the day.. First and final fitting of the new Triple R composites splitter for Cupra/Cupra 280 (Might also fit FR).

I went in December to start the design work with Triple R. We couldn't use the MK2 splitter as a starting point as the shape is different so had to start again with a lump of wood.

This is how we ended up


The MK3 shape has allowed us to make the splitter alot shallower therefore meaning the MK3 splitter is a lot lighter than the MK2 one that we designed back in the day on my MK2 LCR.





"Official" photos to come soon.


Triple R have said turn around time on these is around 2 weeks from ordering (All handmade), They will come in at around £80 + £15 PP so roughly £95 (Triple R to confirm).

Fitting kit is included, bolts and washers.

Looks good. Any pictures you can post from underside of where the fixings are and what they look like? I'm wondering if I would be able to replace my MK1 splitter with this now I have already made holes.

people plural or people meaning anyone?
I've emailed them so just waiting for a reply.

out of interest what is the actual practical purpose of a splitter? I know it makes it look slightly nicer from the front as it makes it a little lower. but i'm guessing there is a proper purpose for them

also, how is it for going over speedbumps /ramps etc? I'm interested in getting one to make it stand out a little more than a standard leon. but if it makes it a problem for general driving then i guess i shant bother.
