I bought it a few years ago when I had my Blue 290. Think it cost me like £20 from an eBay store.

Only took 20mins to clean - after watching a few YouTube videos I decided to give it a go.

Just ordered some. Been wanting to fit the panel filter @Damo H passed to me and thought I should give it a clean and fit it setting as the car hasn’t moved in two weeks.

Well be fitting my Bonnet Gas Struts too.

It’s amazing how much a roof spoiler changes the look of the car isn’t it

It is amazing you’re right, I think the pictures don’t do it much justice but in person it makes it looks so much more attractive.

Cleaned the interior and wheels. Don't want to rush, lol

Desperately need to get my caliper paint out and do the hubs too

Not today, but yesterday...

I done a small upgrade that all manual Cupra owners should do. The difference is night and day!

Pic: Before (on top) and After (on bottom)

Airbox and battery are required to be removed. And drilling holes and sawing/sanding plastic is also required, but if I can do it, anyone can!

I’ve not upgraded to a short shifter as I wanted to see what this was like first. I’ve been for a 10 mile trip to/from the shop and I really don’t think I need the short shifter. The gears feel so smooth, so slick and just a nice fast engaging gear selection. I may try a short shifter in a month or so, but acceleration seems so much better with the gear changes.

Todays job will hopefully be upgrading the shifter bracket to a metal one with upgraded bushes also.

Looks nice! TBH, I don't get on with short shifters... maybe I'm just too old to relearn. LOL. But all I ever ended up doing was letting the clutch up too early and getting the gearstick stuck. Plus the Cupra is a shorter throw anyway.
