Hi All,I thought I'd share my car with you. I purchased the Leon to replace a mk5 Golf TDI as my daily mileage had reduced and no longer needed the perks of a diesel. My main goal when I bought the car was Lower it, wheel spacers, intake, BTCC spoiler and a stage 1 map.........................Well here it goes!! My first 2 mods were a Cobra turbo back exhaust with sports cat and an Evolution Motorsport intake. Rtech stage 2 remap was to follow a few months later. The car made 330bhp/325lbft but unfortunately the clutch started to slip meaning my next "mod" was unexpected and rather expensive. Alex at AKS fitted a Helix organic clutch with a new oem dual mass fly wheel, the clutch pedal was slightly firmer than standard but this gave the car a slightly more sporty feel. Next up was new wheels; Bola B10's in gunmetal with new Bridgestone tyres and to sort out the ride height at the time I felt the car drove and handled well enough so opted for some Eibach sportline springs. Oh and I also fitted a rhino lip spitter. A few more styling mods; wing mirror covers hydro dipped in gold true weave carbon, a BTCC spoiler, genuine Seat front and rear mud flaps and rear honeycomb added to the front grill. I decided to change the cat back system from the standard Cupra left exit to the newer Cupra R twin centre exit, I did this to improve looks and hoping it would improve flow for future tuning work. I also upgraded the brakes using TTRS callipers, AKS 345mm adapters and 310mm rear brakes. At the time I was working part time (now full time) for Detail My Car in Newbury so I had the opportunity to give the car a well earned multiple stage machine polish and sealed it with car pro CQUk ceramic coating. I spent a few months enjoying the car/ saving for the next purchases so no real update. Here is the list of parts I purchased to push the power to the next level, unfortunately this meant the car spent 6months in my garage at home in bits while I was finding time to fit them with a good friend of mine.

On the morning of the 27th August I set off to drop my car off at Rtech for 2 weeks for a custom mapping session, the next time I was to drive the car it would be 426bhp/411lbft and it felt amazing!!!! All the waiting, swearing, blood, sweat etc etc was worth it! Unfortunately for my wallet I had to buy a milltek cat back and a revo intake as with my current set up the power was maxed at 400bhp. Now the car was back I could start working on the handling starting with BC racing coilovers, super pro antilift kit and H and R anti roll bars. Other than a few bits the car is almost "finished" Hope you enjoyed the read.

A frame rear brace fitted ( flocked in black by absolutely flocked) New stealth sub enclosure with a 8 inch Hertz Mille subwoofer Hertz HDP1 amp And a false floor to hide the amp and methanol pump *Update* As the Leon is nearly "finished" it deserves abit of a tidy up as it's picked up a few marks here and there from being man handled so much last year. And here's a couple of pictures of my boot build in the dark. *Update* Freshen up Detail complete https://www.facebook.com/Detailmycar/posts/1383688151714071 *Update* You can almost see where all my money has gone *Update* It's a small picture but the Leon is in the launch issue of vwg magazine . *Update* I gave the Leon some well deserved attention yesterday afternoon as the front end was completely nailed in bug *Update* Last week I added a 2nd methanol nozzle to the Leon I'm not sure yet if it's all psychological but the thing feels like a monster again now its intake temps have been massively reduced!!
