    Cupra booked into Coupers next Tuesday for these "bits" . Needing new brakes anyhow. Took the Leon Type R out and the brembo's are sick!!!!!!!. They stopped people arguing , stopped world wars etc. They were amazing, Mine are BREMBO lookalike :thumbd:

    Previous owner of the car contacted me yesterday to tell me about mine being recalled.

    Top bloke for telling me else i'd have never known.

    Guess i'll ring Seat garage today and book it in.

    You'll be OK right up until you're not... which inevitably will be when you need to stop. The dealer will be able to find out if you need to be done or not.

    IIRC, there'll be a sticker under your boot carpet, next to the one with your engine code etc on it.

    Mine was placed under the dash, as I had a boot build installed so they couldn't get to it !! ;)
     
  11. do they just stick it in there when it goes it for a service or something like that then? will have to have a look later !

    They only stick the sticker in the car when they';ve done the 'recall'.

    I reckon SEAT will keep a database of those car that have/haven't had it done. Worth a phone call to your dealer to check I reckon.

    my brake servo hose was split and i just left it for a few weeks. until one day when i was on the my local private race track and it fell right off.

    lucky the private race track was open late at night and there was no other cars about as having no brake servo takes awile to stop.:wtf:

    SEAT fixed it aswell as the coils for free.

    I replace mine myself this weekend, as SEAT had a 5 week waiting list to do it. So i took the part, fitted it, then took the old one back to get it for free.

    10 mine job. 5 week waiting list my arse.
