Dropped my Leon FR off at North Wales Seat, hopefully they can find the leak.
They did give me a 70 Plate A3 TFSI e as a courtesy car. Not a fan

So I had a MK4 hybrid for a couple of days and I noticed the aero covers on the rear arms so I had to have them on the Cupra. Cheap parts...less than £20.

Didn't exactly do anything with my Leon, but did something for it.
Picked up a yale smart CCTV system, last night someone attempted to fish the keys through my letterbox. Some very scummy people around
 

Seriously?

There certainly are:mad: I'd be tempted to install one of these letterbox protection devices also:

I did a lot of analysis on Ambient coloring zones as defined in our infotainment filesystem :geek:
For those who love to read how I analyse this kind of stuff, read my drive2 blogpost about it here: Researching GCA (GenericCarAdjuster) Files

My main goal was to find out what mechanism determines which ambient zones are configurable on our devices. Of course, lights need to be attached to the LIN bus, but without the correct zone configuration, you won't be able to configure the zones in the settings screen.

Took it to Seat for service and MOT. Battery and TPS warning lights on. What I get for not driving the thing. Hopefully it'll be ok, just needs driving more

Interesting read.... we love a few hex values.....

Fitted my new tinted 3D gel number plates

This might be of interest, bearing in mind 3D and 4D plates are affected;

I’m a bit of a rebel I must say. I doubt the penalty for having a 3D plate is one of death or incarceration. Take risks and prosper

I installed these airscoops from HG-motorsport:


it doesn't really show that well when installed, so I highlighted them on this product picture:



Not sure about any gains.. but it was a fun and easy install.

Bought the eaziwrap copper tape for the interior chrome bits and steering wheel plus gearnob sticker and front flag copper sticker. Managed to do the front flag sticker without issues and the steering wheel strip and badge but the rest was a disaster. Watched the videos before i started but the copper strips ended up in the bin. The one on the gearnob seemed too wide and wouldn't tuck away so that was binned too. I thought i would be able to do it but it didnt work out that way. Disappointed as I think that it would have looked good.
It's definitely not easy, I bought the vinyl squeegy but it's too thick to tuck away the vinyl. I used a credit card in the end to do all the interior pinstriping. It doesn't look too bad if you squint!
