    Looks like the pre-facelift cupra chewing on a lemon

    Just painted he front grille of my facelifted FR to look more like this concept. Looks exactly like it, only lacking the traditional SEAT holes.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's not on the Paris Motorshow stand on Friday..... We're there Saturday so no doubt we'll have some whited out photo's from the over bright lamps!

    Having seen a few facelifted FR's they do look a little fresher now I'm used to them.... But it's not as funky looking as some of the sub 200bhp alternates any more

    Imo this should really come with some kind of discrete spoiler, just looks too much like a normal ibiza from the side.

    Then they wouldn't be able to sell you a spoiler for £100!
    It's a shame, very few models in the current range come with a spoiler.
    Quite a contrast to years ago when all the Ibizas had a spoiler and then the Cupra's had a bigger spoiler.

    Ofc gotta improve those profit margins, I agree real shame as it would set the cupra well apart so much more.

    Talking of prices I see bluetooth, usb and climate control aren't even standard any more on the FR model, I was convinced they where came with my boca as standard last year. There goes another £700 I guess.

    Suppose it's the thing to do these days scrape everything but the engine and seats out and charge extra for the steering wheel.
    Mad I've already bumbed into someone from just down the road already lol.

    IIRC, thats unlikely. The 225 model Polo R has the 2.0 from the Golf, and according to Autocar:
    Doubt SEAT would get a look in. Shame tbh, because having a weapon in SEATs armory to truly take on the competition wouldn't be a bad thing :)

    Probably just wishful thinking on my part :lol:

    Although isn't the 2.0 engine from the Golf basically the same 2.0 from the Leon FR?
