    Got me a few little bits to see me through January lol

    Now to get the old aerial off... I remember it being a pain on my previous leon...

    These are only a test and may not be staying on the car, although the fog bulbs will be staying if they are whiter than current.

    Hopefully got some little goodies to fit over the next 2 weeks as i've been lazy!

    Plastic Battery Box
    Blue Metal Door shutter protectors
    Stubby Aerial
    Alloy Wheel Cupra Decals (Blue)
    Front Fog lights
    Bonnet gas strut kit (no drilling or welding)
    SEAT (Non Genuine) tyre dust caps in black
    Magnetic mount for the cd player slot so I can mount a tablet for Torque App
    Ram air standard size air filter

    Then after that it's a full clean if the weather holds and is warm enough lol

    This bonnet gas strut mod you're doing, is this a kit you can buy, or is it a few parts that you have to buy separately to make it up?

    It supposedly comes as a full set so I took the plunge and bought it... A minor issue is that there is no reviews and it's from Russia lol

    I have the link if you want it but i'd recommend waiting for me to get mine delivered and tested before spending £50 for the brackets and struts.

    I will do a guide and review once I get it (hopefully next week), I didn't post the link in the first place in case people just bought it and it was rubbish.

    I had the kit from russia fitted to my cupra

    Only downside was its stiff to close and i was scared it would dent the bonnet when shutting

    I assume it didn't dent the bonnet lol I don't mind it being stiff to close as it means it's keeping it from falling lol does it stop before it hits anything behind the bonnet?
