    Spec Sheet

    History:
    ]
    My name is Brett and I brought the car completely standard in October 2010 with only having 1 previous owner.

    I had wanted a Cupra R since I was 18/19, we (the lads) were on the way to Billing VBOA rally and I remember seeing a yellow one come along side us on the M6 with 5 lads in, I dropped a gear in my Cav SRI and before I could even get on it, the Cupra R was just a yellow spec, Fu** me I thought, one day, one day!

    So you can imagine when I went to see the car and pick it up I was in ore, it was a lot of car for the money.

    So previously I was heavily into modifying Vauxhalls, I had a 4x4 Turbo Cavalier, V6 Cavalier and the SRI, and had sworn to myself that I would only lightly mod the Leon as it was a fast car already.

    Well ……………. 8 years on and many, many ups and downs later I have slightly gone over my initial
    mod list

    Anyway, I won’t bore you any more, I will be around and happy to chat in more detail.

    That’s one hell of a car you have there.
    I see you’re into plastidip too. Crazy stuff.
    Loved a Vauxhall back in the day too.
    Astra GTE 16v with the mad digital dash that was a rabid Car too.

    LCR33, that is one hell of a spec!!! and what a car.

    I could never justify spending that much on my car (to her indoors) but am open to how you did it :)

    cheers

    Thanks very much guys.

    I didn't intend on spending/doing all that but one thing led to another etc etc.

    I looked to get rid of it a while ago, test drove the rs3 amg golf r Honda and ford rs but not of them quite hit the spot and I got into the leon to drive home and was just so happy, so instead of spending £350 -£550 per month I saved it and upgraded the leon. :)

    I’m stood on that slope and it’s very slippery, someone must have poured oil on it!
