    Hey all.
    Just a quick question regarding a Cupra I'm looking at purchasing.
    The car does not have Cupra on the tailgate,but does have the flag,and the brake calipers are black instead of the usual red.
    Was this an option or has a previous owner done this?
    The car is at a very reputable local dealership.
    Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.

    Not sure on the Brake Calipers but it looks as if someone wanted a sleeper and debadged it.

    The callipers were red and either had Cupra lettering or Brembo printed on the front dependant on the whether it had the PP.

    Debadging wasn’t an configurator option (in the uk at least), but dealers could offer the service.

    Mostly likely as the last poster stated it was done by the previous owner.

    Thanks guys.
    Went back to look today and the calipers look to be properly painted and have the correct cupra wording on them.
    I'm thinking the previous owner has simply had it done to perhaps tone the car down?

    Sounds most likely. Especially if it’s been debadged too.

    On the latest model they’ve actually changed the callipers from red to black.
