    Well it's time for me to move on in the world of SEAT's and look into the MK3 Leon Cupra which means my beloved MK2 (Shirley) will be up for sale just on this forum as i'd like it to go to a valid member that I know will look after it like I have.

    I will put in any issues I know about in this thread as i'd hope I get the same treatment with my next car etc

    Review Thread - https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/seat-leon-mk2-cupra-r-2010.444337/

    Now as you may or may not know I got this car in Jan 2018 and since then I have got into Detailing and maintaining this car to the best I could without modding the engine or changing the stock look, I've only bought genuine parts and all parts have been fitted by my local garage who i've used for over 15 years. The car is in very good condition in my opinion and only need very few things doing to her to make it a very high condition (go through that later).

    Just so you're aware I am in no rush to sell this car and the price is pretty much stuck going by other R's on AutoTrader so please no silly offers, as I am in no rush I will be picking the new owner not based on if they have the money available but if I think they will look after it as much as I have (and the money of course haha). I have receipts for everything I have purchased and invoices from the garage to prove it's been fitted.

    The engine is Stock and has never had any maps on as far as i'm aware.

    Bits worth knowing:
    - Plastic rattle from Front Passenger Door
    - Alloy paint isn't the best (previous owner curbed a few times)
    - Caliper front red paint faded
    - Does not have high performance tyres

    As for Body work the car is in very good condition apart from a few stone chips but due to age I think that's a given, there is one slightly bigger stone chip just to the right of the front grill which I have attempted to fill in using genuine paint.

    The Alloys have a few scuffs on from the previous owner and it has a few little bits that have been filed down and then painted I think. The tyres are currently on the same ones I bought it on and they have 5-6mm left after 1.5 years of use so they must be quite a hard compound and also mid budget although this has never bothered me when driving as I do not drive like a loon.

    Interior has some tiny scratches but in very good condition, the USB/AUX socket is showing some cracks in the paint but easy replacement.

    I have cleaned the car using Autobrite, Auto Finesse, Autoglym, Fusso Wax and some other brands, it gets a 7 hour decontamination clean maybe 3 times a year and 4 hour maintenance washes every 2-3 weeks then it's kept in the garage till it's dirty lol

    I get between 32mpg and 40mpg on a reasonable run, comfort is good considering the 19" wheels.

    Modifications:
    2 SCN Stickers (Back Window and Front Splitter)
    TRC Front Splitter
    SuperPro Anti lift kit
    Gas Bonnet Struts (through group buy on the forum)
    Ramair Air Filter (for stock engine cover)
    Plastic Battery case (removed the fabric stock version)
    LED DRL's and Sidelights (no errors)

    Upgraded/Replaced Parts:
    Genuine MAP Sensor and Connector housing - July 2019
    Genuine R8 Coilpack - June 2019
    Genuine Oil Pick up pipe + O Ring - June 2019
    Genuine VW Orange Dipstick - June 2019
    Genuine Diverter Valve (06F 145 710G) - Jan 2019
    Genuine PCV Breather Valve (06F 129 101R) - Jan 2019
    Genuine Cam Follower, O ring and bolts - Jan 2019
    Genuine Boot Latch - June 2019 (fitted by me)

    Preventative Maintenance:
    All Injectors Cleaned and new baskets fitted
    New Oil pick up pipe
    Oil Sump cleaned + new sealant

    Service Parts (last Full Service - June 2019):
    NGK Platinum Spark Plugs
    Mann Oil filter
    Mann Fuel filter
    Castrol Edge 5W-30 Oil
    Bosch Pollen filter
    Injectors cleaned + filter baskets replaced
    Oil Sump cleaned
    Oil pick up pipe replaced

    Service History:
    The car unfortunately came with no service history book (has one now) but before buying I checked with SEAT CS and they provided me with the full SEAT service history including the Water pump, Cam belt being done before I bought the car, since I have had the car it's been serviced by my local garage as the local SEAT garages get poor reviews, I have bought all parts prior to services and just got my garage fit them for me.

    16/10/2017 Water Pump Change 30,580
    16/10/2017 Major/Full Service 30,580
    16/10/2017 Cambelt Change 30,580

    Contact:
    Please email me jimbobcook1984 at gmail dot com or DM on the forum for any more information, please note that no viewings will happen at my house, I will meet you at a location on your route to me (Rutland) for you to see what the car is like, this means that the car will be not be started cold but I can record this for you if you wish.

    Hopefully I've not missed anything off, if I have I will change it on here and let any interested members know.

    Sad to see it go but hopefully the new owner will be a full member and keep her going.

    They don’t make the Mk3 in Speed Blue so what colour you interested in?

    Sad to see the twin of @Legojon’s car go, I hope it’s bought by someone on the forum so we still get to see it

    Dont think he would be happy with the fuel economy of the Beast nor the insurance (which I have to say for me is dirt cheap)

    However for anybody looking for a car like this we can all confirm its is a very clean and well looked after motor, we get to meet it about 4 times a year and convoy with it so buy it now.

    I'm turning a new leaf with the MK3 I'm taking a leaf from @theoldboy and driving it instead of worrying about it consistently lol so a colour that doesn't take much maintenance I think white, silver, or is it magnetic... Black is too hard to keep clean as red isn't desire so I'm out there. Not sure as of yet...
    I only pay just over 300 for mine so it's not bad currently lol I'll do swapsies with yours any day haha
