    Doesn't sound too bad mate, if they are going to pay half the price, I would see if they will agree for a Seat dealer to do it, then you get the two year fitted part warranty. :)

    Sounds like it's worth a look, all depends on price.

    Just make sure you do your homework on what to look for. ;)

    sort of.

    both the 225 and 210 are cupra R's.

    210s were early cupra Rs, then later they had an update, and 225bhp.
    this thread is to try and show the differences between the 210 and 225 models.

    Hi,

    Read forum for quiet some time but not posted for a while, I have a question about the EGT, are these the same on both the 210 and 225? I have looked and can not find any definitive answer to this. The reason I ask is that I have a 225 and locally there is a 210 being broken for parts so rather than pay for the part and it not fit/work correctly I thought it best I ask the people with the knowledge.

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Pritch
