What does the dog bone upgrade do prevent wheel hop?
this is the blurb from REVO
More power results in more movement during aggressive acceleration. The stock torque mount is designed to offer comfort over performance and does not manage engine movement effectively. Designed to significantly reduce the loss of torque and drastically improve traction and acceleration,

I would also say if you are going to go stage 2 or above then you should also upgrade Engine and Gearbox mounts.

Picked up the powder coated wheels today - going for the modest look :)

Whilst the front bumper is being taken off to fit the second aux radiator I have decided to also fit an oil cooler as on track days values are getting to high for my liking. Got a track day next week and then after this is fitted I have another track day to check the value differences (seen lots of others who say it makes a 15 - 20 c difference)

Steering heating works too? Was it a difficult swap??

Nice!!
Does the heating work too?
Was it a hard swap to do?
You can read full thread about this retrofit here: https://www.seatcupra.net/forums/th...a-heated-steering-wheel-to-a-mk3-leon.470860/

Heating works excellent and to be honest I am turning it off after about 10 minutes because it is unpleasant to hold steering wheel, it's just to hot for me! Although there is a possibility to reduce amount of produced heat (low, normal and high) and change max wheel temperature after which heating will turn off automatically, I just need to adjust it to fit my needs. Every button which should work works (except for ACC and Travel Assist ones in my case, because I don't have compatible assistants (yet ;))).

Swap wasn't that hard, took me about 6 hours to do by myself. Most of the time I've spent near fusebox in order to add new wire.

Small quality of life update today - Silent coat black (3mm) to the entire boot floor and wheel well. Then installed the genuine VAG carpet from a VW Golf estate to complete the OEM+ look

May add some closed cell foam over the top at some point, but hoping for now this will reduce some of the road noise from the rear and the annoying vibration coming from the wheel well panel vibrating at speed (which drove me nuts at French motorway cruising speed)

As an aside, does anyone know how the heck you remove the plastic trim that lets you adjust the height of the boot floor? I want to do the panels behind the carpet up the side of the boot, but can’t get the trim off!

Got mine serviced recently and was quoted £662 for discs and pads for the front. Then told I need 4 new tyres as they are 3mm 😂

Looks good! I'm going to do this to my ST as well as it's a bit droney on the motorway with a trackslag downpipe and scorpion system. Do you have the part number for the golf estate carpet?

5G9863544B fits also for estate, but it does not cover whole floor - it's a bit too short near rear seats.

For hatchback it is 5G6863007E and I've installed it in my car. Before and after photos:

Still on the hunt for cause of my poor mpg.

Swapped out the Map sensor for a new one and plan to change the upstream o2 sensor, see if it makes any difference.

Probably not but worth a go as I have no other idea why it’s so bad
