  1. GOOOODDDD EVENING ALLLLLLLL,

    I have literally just purchased a Leon Cupra R (as in ten mins ago) and was curious about why there are 2 buttons with fuel emblems on it. Obviously 1 releases the money pit but im unsure what the second one is for.

    PLEASE HEEELLLPPPP :(

    Congrats on the car, and welcome to the forum. :)

    Could it be that the ESP on/off button broke and was replaced with the wrong one?
    You don't state what year it is though..

    looks like u have 2 money pits. lol

    may sound stupid but it may have been a on/off switch for either lights inner or outer or a sub
     
  5. It turns out that my car is an ex Essex police interceptor therefor the button has been put there to cover up a hole :)
     
  6. If its ex police, does that mean they've tuned it, or do they keep em standard now? Or de-tune it when its decomissioned or whatever?

    my dad had an ex cop car and they de-tune them but they are very well looked after.
    they cant afford for the car to break down mid chase so they r always in the garage doing inspections.
     
  9. hell yeh you should see this service record, it was services every 2 months, YES EVERY 2 MONTHS, all filters, oil and plugs, however it will have been ragged and yes it would have been re-mapped but they are not allowed to sell them like that they have to put them back to factory standards. :)

    shame that many moons ago a mate of mine had an ex police car (ford escort) that had been tuned and still was when he got it ;)
    welcome to the forum and enjoy your new car
