    I didn't really have a plan, just sort of did it! I built it because I had never done a BT before and wanted to see how far I could push a road car build. Sadly it has to be broken as nobody will pay a reasonable value for the car as is.

    The leon is EPIC one of the fastest things I have ever been in & owned. I'm just after something a bit more classy now.

    If someone wants to offer me sensible money for it I will sell it and let someone else enjoy it.

    Sad news James.... i hope you reconsider.
    Out of curiosity is yours a resonated or non resonated miltek catback not neccessarily after buying it just curious how a 500 bhp car copes with a 70mm catback exhaust pipe diameter.

    Sorry to hear your braking such a fantastic car. Out of interest what would you sell it for as a hole car?

    Sad times mate but the time to move is always upto the owner and realistically we all know the only way to ever get your money back is to break.
    I do hope though that you'll stick around here and even if you do buy the porka
    When I organise the next track day I hope you'll bring it along too (if so shotgun a brown pants ride)

    It's the one without the silencer, also no cat, and pretty sure there isn't a lot left inside the back box either

    Sorry to hear that your gonna break it, but kinda understand your reasoning.

    It seems to be the kiss of death at the moment for BT builds.

    My last car was a 996 Carrera 2S and although not a turbo it was stunning to drive. The feedback you get through the steering wheel is something else. Proper driving car, that and you instantly feel richer than everyone else :D

    I also found the servicing cost etc not that bad, the only things that seem expensive are brakes etc, i was quoted £2800 for discs and pads... I bought the parts myself for £500 and fitted them myself. But if you buy a turbo with ceramic disc upgrade be careful as when it needs disks you will be looking at around 5-7k easy and they are not the sort of things you can buy copy parts for.

    Good luck hunting for your next steed.
