Get some pictures up asap
Yeah, pics or it never happened
I dont want to hi-jack but I picked my new Cupra on Sunday in Nevada White, chopped in my 3 series M-Sport for it, just missed the charecter of Seat ! I was on here a few years back when I had my MK3 Ibiza..
I'm really impressed so far, puts a big grin on my face and the DSG is a great little box i'm sure you will massively enjoy it mate.
I'll get pics up over the weekend, needs a good clean first! I'm guessing best first mod is the ITG CAI?
Again, pics or it never happened
Better get to 15 posts first
Absolute bollocks !!! And I design supercars for a living
That's some superb reasoning there...top car designers putting semi auto boxes in because "its like f1 cars"...oh dear!
For me the appeal of a dsg is, it's quicker, more efficient and latest technology always appeals to buyers.

i personally don't think i would like my boc if it was manual. the dsg box goes perfectly with the engine.
as for problems, other than having to fill my car with oil when i first got it, it's been perfect...touch wood
Finally got round to taking some pics:
I'd like to get rid of that exhaust and I think it's a bit too high. Not sure how the mods would work with the warranty tho so I will probably never bother to do it.

Hehe, gona be pretty skint for a while anyway.
That front end makes me so sad. Looks like a pre-fl bodykit.
Auto will bore you to tears in a 1.4 after a month or two. DSG is the worst thing to happen in the Cupra. Small engine needs manual.
Fingers crossed on no engine problems for you though.
Ye I don't think my photo's do it any justice but I know what u mean. I'm actually enjoying the DSG gearbox, gear changes are quite fun with the paddles.
I prefer the other Cupra wheels, they look like the wrong ones for he car.
This shape does look a lot better in the flesh though, I've seen a few FR's and thought they look very nice.
Does need more aggregation on the front end though
Nice ride Dude, I think your front end photo is a funny angle and thats why it looks abit wierd.... I have the Facelift FR and imo Facelifts are much better looking than the pre-facelifts.
On the debate about DSG and Manual boxes though Im manual all the way as I feel more involved in a manual, DSG arent too bad though.
If you can drive it a lot using them that's cool - but in mine I had to rev it to have any fun, and when I rev'd it I was always scared because of misfires lol. Also being a 1.4 the top end felt really weak - it always felt as though it was going from a gear that was running out of poke to a gear that was running out of poke.
They're nice cars - I loved mine, but it bored me and scared in under a year lol - fingers crossed yours is better tho!
Didn't want auto in the BM but took it - had a lot of fun driving that with paddles lately.
