    Looks good but too expensive for what it is.

    Those tailpipes are hilarious. Why not just make them 4'' diameter? The standard exhaust looks better.

    Autoexpress reporting that Leon Cupra ST - edit Cupra ST R - 335? HP coming, 20in alloys, different exhaust.
    SEAT saying that DSG and 4drive can cope with higher power. I know people have mapped beyond that;)

    Just caught brief glance in Sainsbury's 'Library'

    Also pics of mk4 Leon in latest edition....

    I was just reading the article, it does put a new spin on things!

    Apologies for the crappy pic quality![​IMG]

    Not sure its a new spin, we already know there are lots of stage one cars at 375, stage two with just under 400 and stage three at 500 bhp. Yes the DSG is upgraded but as I understand it its all about when stuff happens not any physical that change the gearbox. So with that in mind we already know that the car can handle lots more power than stock

    I think the difference is that SEAT might offer that upgrade rather than an aftermarket mod. I would expect that if SEAT do or authorise the work, it will be covered by warranty :think:

    Doesn't look like spin at all. The head guy it seems Wayne Griffiths is running around in one of these cars already and most likely will be available to customers as early as 2018!

    Might as well just buy a cheaper car and have it mapped ;)

    It'll be frustrating for the lucky few that have ordered a 'limited edition' 306hp Cupra R FWD. I'm sure that SEAT will release a 350hp run out model.

    It seems it's definitely on the cards alright but I doubt it will be fwd.I would think the hatchback has been signed off already before the next generation arrives in 2019(limited edition R) The st will most definitely follow . 350bhp and Awd would be nice! Mapping is an option on an older car but insurance companies in Ireland don't look on it too nicely. You can't beat a manufacturers warranty though for peace of mind.
