  2. Very nice car they get better looking as they mature.

    Very jealous and how did you manage to find such a clean one with no millage.

    Thank you mate

    It took a while I kept finding ones that had 90k plus on them or weren’t genuine
    It even came with Bluetooth and aux standard which was a result I found it out on the journey home haha

  7. From Wiki

    From 2008, the K1 variant of the León Cupra was introduced in the UK, featuring extensively re-worked front and rear bumpers, side skirts, a more pronounced tailgate spoiler. It also gained a unique chrome-tipped, centrally-mounted, oval exhaust. The K1 is considered to be a limited edition model, as production was only for the year 2008–2009 and it only being available in the UK.

    The k1 is pretty much just a cupra with a body kit and center mounted exhaust :) ive always loved how aggressive they look also you dont see many at all round my way which in my view makes owning one even better .

    first problem i noticed whilst driving it home was the engine temperature wasn't reaching 90 and staying there so i replaced the thermostat with a genuine part also whilst i was at it i changed the aux belt and tensioner gave her a full service plugs fuel filter etc

    All around the country, recently we've had Bispham near Blackpool, Castleton in the Peak District the last year's national meet was in Donington at the race track.

    Looking to get another one in before this year's event though.

    Oooo. I can't wait now. Besides I'm in total control. I was just pricing up the bigger turbos for curiosity.
     
  20. @ash_89 you now have a fan club following your every move.

    @Legojon is the turbo for yours or the other one :) and you had better change your tag line as this is obviously not the last mod :)
