Well, it’s been a sad day.
After 4 years of ownership with my Beloved Cupra R, today is the day that I have no choice but unfortunately it’s going to be going up for sale.
We are undertaking a large extension at home and need to free up some funds.
I’ve been hanging on as long as possible but I have no choice but to let it go.
I’ll get it advertised on here and hopefully it will find a good home. :cry:
Don’t know if any of you have noticed my other thread in classifieds has been updated?
I changed the title.
After accepting deposit from someone to buy my car I decided I couldn’t part with the old girl so she’s staying. 😀
I was giving the inside a once over on Friday evening ready to be collected yesterday and thought what are you doing? You can’t get rid of it.
So a phone call to the potential buyer and a nervous chat to the missus it’s staying.👍

A busy weekend. A airbag error was driving me crazy. Finally got the culprit: a airbag strap behind the steering wheel. Got bonus also on a one way down seized window motor. Took it apart, a good contact cleanning and now it's on perfect condition. Happy days.

Putting off installing my boost gauge.

Yellow FR has been super helpful telling me how to do it, but for someone who knows nothing about electrics, finding my earth points and running wires through the bulkhead is just giving me the fear.

Mine is wired into my cigarette lighter and my vac source comes through one of the spare grommets where the loom comes through. It was one of the first things I did and pretty easy to be honest

Earth's are easy... just any thing metal bolted to the main body is an earth point.

Hi mate did you get the hard coat or normal? I have been looking at these for awhile myself.


I got the hard coat on the front windows. But not the rears. Also had extra quarter light windows done in just black too. So if I go to do an enduro race I can mount a fuel filler in there. But had bithe sides done. For example brands and Donington when you pull in to the pits the garages are on different sides. .
But when done and hopefully proven we will compete in britcar championship too.

That’s high street insurers for you.
Green light are a decent bunch.
Had a claim and they were really good. Silly woman took me to court lying her ass off.
Took a year but they crapped it and pulled out before going into the court room. Wasted everyone’s time including the court.

You're caught in the algorithm now... Mods equals bad.
