    Do you have a problem with your pressure sensors?

    The wheel section has a typo regarding tyres. It states the same sizes for both 17" and 18" wheels :)

    Very interesting and have saved a copy. More differences for the Cupra R than meets the eye.

    I bet a lot of people aren't aware of some of these features such as the coolant circulation after the engine is switched off.

    Seen some of the images before, but not all in the same place. Some useful info there, obviously an early document. Nice images showing the difference between Recaro and "Sporty" seats.

    Some useful diagnostic info & wiring/sensor names too.

    I like how the Brembos are pink. Maybe they are supposed to be that colour...

    My thoughts exactly, people always say that the pump only pumps water round the system to cool it and thats why you should leave the engine running but that document suggests that the cooling pump is designed to cool things like the turbo. :shrug:

    now now, no need for sarcasm. :) I was pointing out that lots of people on here suggest that the pump does not cool the turbo because it doesnt pump any oil.

    Wow excellent post, i was very suprised to find the turbo can handle 2.1bar, i have read several times on here not to go over 1.5bar as you will fcuk your turbo

    "This has been designed exclusively for this engine and is capable of providing a boost
    pressure of up to 2.1 bars."

    ....Where 1 bar is atmospheric pressure, so designed to produce 1.1 bar of boost?
