    I'll have a look at them mate. Yes, the price dropped by over £2k when they dropped the spec.

    These are the wheels I was after for mine but I was planning on painting the centres a funky colour.

    Looks nice mate :)

    Its run from the electric seats, when i replaced my OE leather and put the Recaros in the mirrors stopped working when i engage reverse, i nearly kept the box from under the seat but left it, i still have the connection in my loom for it, i am looking for one from a scrap cupra so i can re-connect it to see if they work again.

    Yes Dave, no problem. I can drop it off to you if you want. If not, I'll be in every night this week. I have a few wee jobs to do on the car. I replaced the brake fluid tonight. The stuff that was in there was a horrible dark green colour, it looked like central hydraulic fluid, the VAG power steering stuff. The brakes are lovely and sharp now with the new fluid. The Gunson Eezibleed is a godsend.

    I might try a bit of cutting compound on the faded panels and put a coat of Carlack 68 on if they come up ok.

    The original Cupra spec had ESP. This was downgraded to TCS with the price drop and the removal of the other goodies.
