I think the hardest part of changing anything was the pollen filter for me. And that itself wasn’t that challenging.I wish I had a MIB2 and not a MIB1...
Anyone serviced their Leon before? Is it easy? I'm considering servicing my Cupra seeing as it's so damn expensive, and garages don't seem to want to follow the Seat schedule..."no this doesn't need doing because it hasn't done enough miles"...I just want everything perfect dammit!
Mini rant over.
Yeah, I have seen it, I don't think the brake fluid was done last year (it would have been 3 years old) so according to Seat it needs to be changed, along with the front diff oil. The place near me told me nah doesn't need doing, and they were funny with me over the phone too trying to actually book it in, so I might just tell them to shove it.I think the hardest part of changing anything was the pollen filter for me.

Spark plugs, oil filter, oil, sump plug, pollen filter and air filter replacement/clean is all you really need for a minor service. But the Mk3 manuals and guides thread will give you the breakdown of exactly what is done on each service (minor and major) and how to do it. I’m on my phone so can’t link you to it at the moment

Yeah that was my 300. Its the first time Ive had the Cupra on track and I was really happy with it. I could tell the brake fluid was starting to go off by the 4th lap out but I kind of expected that as its completely stock. Very close in terms of flat out speed to the M235i that ive driven around there.
A new civic type R was plodding around the pits too. I would have liked to compare it on track but I dont think it ever went out!
So I've had chance to test the throttle response change for a good few miles. It does seem to be smoother off the line, previous setting used to cause the car to jolt forward after slight delay, now power seems to come in smoother without the jolt. I'll be keeping the setting as is for nowUpdated maps to v1030, altered throttle response to linear or whatever the opposite of factory setting is (I got fed up with jerky starts in dsg) and stopped cupra button lighting up when in cupra mode.
Yeah, I told them to not bother with that. I'll just get some non-seat dealer to do it who won't charge the earth...I would ring around and ask for cost, Thats a rip off, its just an oil change and Filter from memory.
