    They seem to be offering it on the ABT site but i doubt SEAT will offer that. Dealers focus on new sales not tuning.
    Either way this is another move by VAG to strengthen the CUPRA brand and thus growing SEAT even more.
    SEAT is by far the most exciting VAG brand in the sub 30000£ segment. RS3 isn't selling enough maybe so VAG doesn't care about making SEATs faster now with the new CUPRA rebranding. VAG wants to sell cars.

    VAG Have also confirmed that they don't see big sales in 400 bhp cars (on the Golf R) so my guess is they will max out at around 350 - 75 which is a stage one tune. You can always fit a tuning box or get a MAP done to get the same.

    I think a lot of ST 4Drive owners would be very interested in this ABT tune if it was made available officially and kept warranty intact.

    I will consider a JB1 for my CupraST Lux when it arrives in the summer, but don’t really want to worry about warranty issues on a brand new car. This ABT time would be ideal !!!!

    I’ve got a 300 ST Carbon which is basically the R bar the carbon wing and mirror caps as far as I can tell?

    It would be great if the tune was made available for it given that it’s ostensibly the same car!?

    Engine wise I think very similar if not identical, so hopefully it will be made available to you at some point.

    According to the press releases the Carbon R is going to have a lot of the extra missing goodies that the Carbon doesn’t, Pano Sunroof, Kessy, Reverising cameras etc etc

    They've fiddled with the camber too.

    If you want the power there are plenty of options out that to give you the same number.

    Couple guys on this forum have just gone Racingline Stage 1 but there are lots of Tuning Box's and ECU Maps that will give you this stage 1 figure. You can even get the ABT Box but the price is a bit higher and I suspect you wont get the warranty.

    I love the seats, and i like the new r badge, justb3 squares for the flag looks pretty cool, id have to agree with @theoldboy , i think id rather have a custom map for 5 or 600 but 370 from factory is still good

    Its not coming to sweden, got it confirmed today. By Swedish laws SEAT must do all tests and make it homologated. In UK, Germany etc its easier and a third party can give a certificate and make it legal. TÜV does it in Germany
