Tailgated in the city today by a Mercedes CLA 250 with an AMG badge on one side of the boot and a C63 badge on the other. Thought that was an odd looking C class so had to look it up (the reg no).
Weird that they didn't put CLA 45 if they are trying to pretend to be something they aren't.

Changed my phone holder as the old one was old and vibrating due to the loss of foam

Had 40 miles to drive in 2 hours so achieved 44mpg with the cruise control at 55. Worst drive of my life.

Where did you get that from? I’ve been thinking about getting one for that same place in mine

It's not one holder sadly. The main plate and mount is brodit

https://www.brodit.co.uk/brodit/vehicles/Seat/Leon/2013-2018.htm

I've then mounted a plate from my previous holder and then glued the ball in place to mount the new one.

The last one was a 4 claw system (Herbert Richter), but the holder had foam covers that came loose over time and started vibrating when the phone was in the holder.

Not today but yesterday. Removed the clutch return spring. Feels much better.
Finally got a clutch that feels right after deleting the delay valve and now the spring.

Is that why my leon feels awful when changing gear during spirited driving. Feels almost as if the car is lurching / holding onto rev’s, strange feeling and like no car i have ever owned before

Could well be. I never managed to do a quick and smooth gear change with the delay valve or spring on the car.
Removing the delay valve for me made the most difference.
Neither job is difficult.
