    The exhaust sounds pretty good from the outside (for me anyway haha) does the R ST have the GPF like the new 290 Cupra?

    Great review as always, I don't see the forum show plates on the car after detailing haha

    Ta. Plates were in the garage, this was a rush one :headhurt:

    Yes it does sound good from the outside, just can't hear much in the cabin. I'm wondering if they don't have the sound actuator fitted much like the CUPRA Ateca. Not sure about GPF, possibly - was originally going to have 370.

    This car definitely has the sound actuator, turned mine off after a few days.

    Can definitely hear the exhaust more now the car has done a few miles, now on 1500miles.

    Little error spotted on the tech specs chart, it lists 400nm and should be 440nm.
