    Cheers for this pabs, great guide! It has given me some inspiration to make my own brackets up and give it ago!

    Also noticed you are from Basingstoke, small world, do you work at an engineering company around here then? I work at hound mills in an engineering firm. Have to go to a meet soon if there is any some when, when my cars back on the road :p Be cool to check those struts out :D

    Edit: Ah sorry man, saw that you are selling up on your readers ride. Sick car though mate, will enjoy reading through your thread.

    Sorry mate, car is up for sale and likely to be sold very soon. I won't be in a SEAT for much longer :( I don't work in engineering but in IT - but I dabble in the mechanical stuff and have a lot of the tools at my disposal as my dad has all the tools I could need (and the skills to use them properly)

    I literally just saw on your readers ride you were selling up :( Well best of luck mate, anyone would be stupid not to buy that, fine example. Gutted I never saw it driving around, never saw a black cupra around Basingstoke on your travels have you? That'll be mine :D. Don't seem to see many of them around here. Are you staying VAG?

    Ah fair enough mate! Sounds like you know what you are doing. If you ever go to any car meets locally, let me know, be good to meet other car enthusiasts. Cheers.

    hey damo would you be interested in making me some brackets up please I would pay as its not my field of expertise, would be much appreciated.
    also I know this isn't anything to do with bonnet strut but does anyone know where you can get head light protective covers from ?
