    Well after 6 years of ownership i thought today i would start my own thread.

    Brought car for £5k with 50k mileage back in in July 2006 from Seat dealership in middlesbrough.

    Car was totally standard apart from wolfrace alloys, Ebc brakes disc's & pads along with supersprint backbox.


    It came with 2years warranty which was 1 of the main reasons i went for it but i
    didnt have the car for more than a month before my turbo went :cry:

    Thanks to my warranty car went to Seat for brand new turbo :D

    Bill came to £1200 :rofl: ......which i didnt pay :whistle:

    With that out the way i actually started to enjoy my new car lol

    Next it was off to the tint shop & i ordered some wind deflectors..... to be continued.......

    Thanks mate, Hybrid treatment is on the books, just collecting parts at the minute.


    Yeh i so happy i didnt pay to get it fixed. Turbo has done over 100k mileage now & still boost hard like a mofo. Soon to be treated to some goodness though :rolleyes:
