    Has there been any official or not-so-official updates on the Leon Cupra ST estate front?

    SEAT would be crazy not to release one within the next 12 months and SEAT aren't crazy. ;)

    Sorry if this has already been posted. I came across this video on Youtube. Cupra going around the Nürburgring with the performance pack.

    Forgive my ignorance I might be missing something but besides bigger brakes, what's included in the 2k?

    "the optional pack includes even more substantial brakes, specially-designed 19-inch alloy wheels in either black or orange and body-coloured side skirts"

    I can't see people noticing a massive difference over the stock car apart from colour of wheels, I don't think the 2k price diff is justified.

    The lightweight wheels that the sticky tyres fit and the sideskirts.

    They would never put the ac delete included in the option as 99% if people will want it and would put people off specking it. To be fair I think £2000 will put people off anyways.

    yet people still buy the meganes.

    I think it couldve dont with a slight bumper change or something, or maybe just a bit of vinyl say 'Ring or Sub'8 down the side but something more

    I know the answer is out there but i cant find it, but one of you will know. I cant find proof to back up my answer but I am under the impressions that the diff is constantly on and once put into sport/race/cupra/w.e mode if allows for more play or more slide if you like, but some say that its off in normal and only on in sport and above?? Anyone know for sure and have it written down anywhere, i'm not going to start a new thread as i know it will be a quick answer :)

    German vid, but the fella in it points out all the bits. I wasn't aware of the little side blades on the rear spoiler before...

    The side blades are from the Black and White line packs and are now available to order as individual parts. You're looking at around £250-£300 fitted though and it involves removing the top spoiler.

    I was thinking about them but don't think I'm doing to bother.
