    Call me juvenile, but a couple of days ago I was behind a Commodore SS-V (similar to the VXR V8 in the UK)
    6.2L LS1 V8 etc, we pulled out of an intersection and he floored it, as did I, the look on his face was priceless as he realised a little hatchback was not only staying with him, but gaining.

    Did that with an RS4 from some traffic lights - he seemed quite miffed!

    Love doing that with so called quicker cars, makes me grin every time, what the car was made for.

    That is one of my kicks - this brand (Seat) is fairly rare in Finland, with the Cupra being even more rare, so NO ONE knows what they are.
    I love annoying Mercs, Beemers and Audis on the traffic light grand prix.
    I could have got myself a flashy Mercedes or BMW to pose around, but I like "sleeper" cars :)

    Same here. We bought the first Cupra in the country. A few petrol heads recognise the brand, but most think it's a Suzuki. That'll be the worlds fastest Suzuki hatch.:1st:

    Funnily enough, we live in a small city of 45,000 but there are 5 SEAT's here now, two are Cupras.

    Those are real sleepers for shure, couple of weeks ago one guy asked how much horsepower its having as he thought about 160kw. After the test drive and some launches he didnt want to speak at all.
    And im planning to get rid of the rear badges to make it more sleeper looking, would be nice to have the brake calipers in black like the newer ones.

    Totally debadged rear of my CUPRA ST & removed white lettering on front brake calipers. New flag in the front grille is black/grey & barely visible against black background so have left that, it's the only badge that gives it away as a Cupra on exterior now ....pretty stealthy.
    I plan to change copper badges to black...so on a Magnetic Grey car will be appropriately low profile I hope.
    Even thinking of adding a TDi badge on rear just to fox the opposition further!!

    Ive owned B5 RS4 previously, used A4 and 1.9TDI badges on the trunk, ofcourse you have to be far from cars if you think thats not a performance car but it was still funny to launch from the stoplights like that.

    I considered doing that on the Cupra, but it is more involved...
