Greetings fellow sad bastids. I really did wonder about signing up to this site. But on reflection I'm hoping it will do me some good in the long run. I've only had my car for a month and you guys have, what, a thousand years experience between you? Already I have an annoying beeping telling me there is a "Driver door contact fault". Which is a shame cos I think I could seriously love this tin box. Like some of you suggest, I suspect this is a water-related electrical short that may (or may not) dry out. It's annoying because it's a niggle. But really, the Cupra 290 is just a complete joy to drive. I am no boy racer. I am in my 50's and know what I'm doing. Comfort mode is perfect for pretending to the wife that this is an ordinary and respectable car; sport mode is irrelevant; cupra simply equals fun. I don't know how long we've got before every car is chipped and big govt knows how fast we are going every minute of the day but until then long live this stupidity. I had a diesel Golf for 10 years. How glad am I to get rid of that awful sound and exchange it for this gorgeous snorty roar!
