    I wonder how many units they'l bring to the UK considering that they only brought 50 Carbon editions and they haven't even managed to sell all of those yet...

    It's more than the 5 door CUPRA R. More details to follow when we have an official UK press release.

    Shame SEAT/CUPRA have skimped on the flared arches from the 5 door. A bit of penny pinching there sadly :(

    That is pretty big! That's quick even with 300 lol £500 for 70bhp isn't to shabby either.

    That was the secret.

    Now if SEAT can sort the finance deals this is my next.

    So all they are doing is giving the uk what a lot of Europe already have. Personally I would rather have some of the Local tuners doing the work but its a step in the right direction.

    What have you done, you used to have it.

    ABT Sportsline offers the best warranty solution on the market with 2 years warranty up to 100.000 km from the date of the first registration. The warranty is included and will be offered in following countries: Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Italy and Poland.

    Is it just the R ST thats not covered.

    £500 for a remap that is covered by warranty is a bargain lets be fair. ABT have been around for years in the European tuning world.

    ABT is however a "tuning box" For the Cupra.

    APR offer warranty approved maps in USA but not Europe at the moment.

    I doubt it, at least for the foreseeable future. I have asked SEAT to confirm though.
