    I do hear the sunroof when going over big bumps at slow speeds, but I wouldn't call it a rattle. Other than that the car has no rattles or other weird noises.

    Careful of the follow-through when you're pushing to get a fart :whistle:...:weedy:

    the dsg farts are there, you just have to give it some beans in Sport or Cupra mode

    i also think (like above) that you cannot hear them from inside the cabin (even when Soundaktor is off)

    Im gona get my go pro mounted on the weekend

    The Leon Cupra has to be one of the worst cars ive owned for cabin noise though!

    Yeah, it's the tires. Replace them with some actual performance tires like PS4s and the noise will be significantly reduced.

    Hello guys,

    I think a have with my new 2019 Cupra the issue that the left headlight is mich darker then the right one?
    I cannot show that with my smartphone camera it is not visible but it is there.
    With darker I mean the color temperature (Calvin). Left looks more like white/a bit yellow and the right side white/blue (standard).

    Does anyone else have or had the issue and knows if it makes sense to drive to the seat partner?
    I hope they would exchange the legt headlight.

    Regards
    Manuel

    Sounds like an issue for the dealer.

    @TheLuckys

    Got her back this evening and went for a drive.
    Consistent recognisable DSG farts.
    Using paddles and changing at 5k +

    The exhaust was very very vocal.

    Nowhere near matches the tone of the R they now seem a world apart.

    The R was extremely deeper in tone so much so that you couldn't hear the pops as crisply as in the Cupra.
    The DSG bang was louder too but it was pre GPF car too on between 5-6k.

    Does anybody have a high pitch whining noise from engine bay? When I opened the hood I located it on the left side of the engine bay but couldnt pinpoint before it disappeared. Its like a turbo noise, audible when idling and changing pitch, sounding like some worn out bearing on some cambelt auxilliary device like alternator. I will try to record it. Its similar to air injection pump noise, but I cant find the info whether my car has one. Usually heard on cold start, can be heard for a few minutes and then disappears completely. It doesnt happen every time I start the car. It is louder than engine in the cabin and can be heard outside also.

    That’s a very reassuring post, as I too would like a bit more loudness but not maybe so much when driving in comfort mode.
    I have a Zaustworx res delete delivered and now very excited to have it fitted, can’t wait now

    I am stock MY19 with GPF and I can get consistent loud farts in Manual/Sport. Went through an underpass and was very loud. Definitely gets louder the more miles you do. I’m currently on 1200 now but have been redlining it since about 500 miles (when the engine oil has been above 90C)

    Hey all been reading this thread for while and just wanted to give my thoughts.

    Got my non-lux Nevada white 290 (lease) delivered about 4 weeks ago. Loving it would be an understatement! What an absolute beast! Scary fast! Done about 4.5k miles in it now.

    Like others on here I was worried/disappointed with the exhaust due to these daft new filter things. It wouldn't pop or fart at all for a while. (0-500ish) That may have been my limited knowledge on how best to produce them tho! But as the miles racked up so did the sound! Once it hit about 2.5k I could really notice a difference! Now at 4.5k even in comfort mode it’s sounding much better! Getting some mega loud pops on overrun in the lower gears!

    I have noticed a slight issue with the brakes tho! I often do a 400 mile trip and noticed each time the next morning the brakes seem a little stuck on when I move! Makes a pretty loud clunking sound as if they glued on to the disks! Anything to worry about? Or anyone else noticed this?

    Do you have the automatic parking brake on? If so that may cause this issue if you're driving away a bit too quickly. Move it from Park into Drive and give it just the tiniest bit of gas, then just let go. You'll hear the parking brake disengaging and you'll slowly start rolling. If you give it too much gas, or continue giving it gas the car will attempt to drive through its own parking brake.

    If that's not it, check your discs for unusual marks or signs of wear. If all are looking good it doesn't sound like a major issue to me.

    @Cjm the brakes issue is common with cars utilising auto hold systems. It’s not so much an issue, more of a by product of rust/brake material build up and the car clamping down.

    The clink you hear is either the brake pad surface binding to the disk slightly from hardened friction material, or if you’ve used the car in rain or washed it, a small lip almost formed around the pad so when you drive this clunk is what you’ll hear as the pad breaks away. Will also sound like you have a nail in your tyre as the pad clips it for a few meters :yes:

    As above, its quite normal on autohold/electric parking brakes these days, especially if damp when when parking up or selecting reverse as the first movement after starting up.

    Hello, I'm getting my new cupra Nevada white full option[B)] on friday. My question is : did you change oil and oil filter after 3.5k-5k km? I've been told by dealer that I should do it, other one said no, why?
    I'm very exicted can't wait to fire it up. I'm also surprised after test drive how comfortable leon cupra is, I drove it on roads far from being perfect, and just wow.

    No need to change the oil that early at all
