    Was tempted by a 290 Leon but was 19k and my mk1 jazz blue cupra has 300 so wasn’t allowed it!

    Yeah MK2 Cupra R, been my fav car for a while jumped up from an FR, could fo got a MK3 but I love the MK2 shape too much just doesn't have the modding ease ability like the MK3.

    You've got a good deal there, shame they put an end to the Toledo, it seems to be all SUV these days.

    Yea mate mk2 R is nice. But as you said not quite as easy to mod .. we have a remapped Altea FR tdi too...
    most annoying thing is the 12v socket isn’t live all the time and the ignition has to be on to charge the phone !

    We'll an update ..... Cars going well and surprisingly nippy and really economical. However modding itch is beginning to appear... Ride height is too high so looking at options... Now booked in for a remap! Sand have ordered a subtle boot spoiler. Also changing wheels to Audi 18" ...

    No offence but the Toledo is one ugly car.
    Couldn't you persuade her in doors to go for a Leon?

    For under 12 grand it’s one of the better looking cars out there I think.
    How boring it would be if everyone owned a mk3 leon?
    I’ll be honest, I love my mk1 LCR but mk3 leons are so popular where I live thanks to cheap lease deals I don’t think I’d have one as my daily car even if it was big enough for my 3 kids and all their stuff.
    I like to be different!
    so fair play @akchappers sounds like you got a bargain there!

    I really like the looks, but to be honest it's a rubbish drive with ancient underpinnings from the MK4 Golf parts bin amongst others. You can feel the body twisting in bumpy bends and it lacks grip overall, especially on the factory Bridgestone 050A which are poor. But worst is the torque-free 1.0 lump. I quite enjoyed 3 years driving the 1.2 model Toledo, but find nearly all of the 1.0 motors across the SEAT range awful, bar the 95PS 5 speed in the Arona.

    It's ugly, like the Focus saloon.
    I'd rather buy a second hand Golf or Leon for that money.

    Wow a lot of haters !
    If you noticed I have two mk1 cupras one being probably the oldest in here a 180 sort but an app engine not an auq. That has 300 bhp. Blue one is modded too plus an Altea Fr .
    My Toledo is great . I love it and a hell of a lot of car for under 12k .
    I actually like the styling and as I said above it’s soon to be getting bigger wheels and a slightly lower stance plus a remap .
    As Nathan said Mk3 Leon’s are ten a penny .
    Plus I’d line my yellow Mk1 up against any of them .
    I Alike to be different and not Fokine the crowd. Ever seen a modded Toledo? You soon will .
    Blaotastuc I have three other Seats .

    The thought of a modded Toledo makes me feel sicker than a even a basic one.
    Sorry but as you say it's your car so enjoy.

    Mk4 Toledo looks fine to my eyes, different to the 5F Leon, but obviously of the same era/SEAT design language. Maybe some just hate a saloon-like format, personally I generally prefer saloons to hatches or SUV's.
    The only 'ugly' Toledo to my eyes was the 'Mk 3', (5P) which was an ungainly-looking beast from almost any angle - no wonder SEAT
    had to kill that thing earlier than planned - mediocre sales certainly told a story.

    I love the fact it looks like a saloon and is a hatch . And I agree ! That Mk3 Toledo was just plain weird. The fiat multipla of the seat family

    Over on Briskoda there are a few modded or low Rapids ( the Toledo's twin ) - even a bagged one. The Monte Carlo Rapid has a subtle bodykit on it. SEAT Mexico do (did?) a "kit aerodinamico" for the Toledo 4 as well. Or Superskoda ( and some other European outlets) do spoilers sills wide arches etc.
