Bit of a mixed day today.

Went to the Trafford Centre to start and finish my Christmas Shopping - Quieter than I thought too. All complete with minimal fuss. Whilst I was in there my car was finally get a wash after all the stripes and vinyl was completed.

Sadly as part of the valet, the stripes and vinyl on the sides of the car got damaged. Partly its the valets issue (silver bits) but also the vinyl not adhering to the paintwork (black bits). So with the pin stripe silver bits clearly being to delicate, its back to the drawing board for the visit back to the wrapper to fix.

Got some photos done on my way home before I noticed the issues. Seems really obvious in the photos now. But I still love this shot...

Today I traded my Cupra 290 Black. Mixed emotions, car has been fantastic but I have a RWD with a straight six engine 'itch' that needs scratching and the opportunity has arisen to scratch that itch.

So, in about a week I'll be jumping out of the Cupra for the last time and jumping into a BMW M140i Shadow Edition (with plenty of options).

I can see the need for an Estate in a few years time, so a return to a Leon ST Cupra is not out of the question down the line.

Struggling with noticing the difference with the soundaktor having been turned off recently, so made double checked to see if it was unplugged today and still can’t notice the difference. Is it very slight or should it be a big difference?

Huge difference especially in Cupra Drive Profile, you would notice it much less in Comfort.
