    Back on the farting topic; I managed to get a much louder high load fart on my way to work today. I was driving at like 50-ish kph (30mph) in Sport mode and with the gearbox in manual, I then punched it and got a kick-down, must've been to 2nd gear or so. When I shifted I swear I heard a fart out the exhaust, a loud one too. I'll try to recreate a similar situation today or tomorrow to see if I can do it again.

    So I’m not very good with this kinda stuff.. so anyone know what part is the resonator if it still has one? This exhaust looks very different to the 2019 ST with the GPF fitted.

    That long rectangular box is still a resonator - the round can at the front appears to be the GPF - so it would seem the 5 doors could possibly still be eligible for a res delete!

    Agreed that looks to me like the resonator is still in play not like in my picture of my MY19 Coppra ST! So 5 door owners may be ok. Need to see underside of a Copra 5 door.
    It's all a bit random as the guy with a non Copra 18 plate mystery blue ST who I saw on Wed at Performance Parts wasn't expecting the same problem as me...I.e no resonator to delete anymore on the newer STs. SEAT must have started to fit the new exhaust systems on the non copper ST cars just before the copper badge change over.

    Really impressed with the soundacktor in this version. More realistic and grown up compared to the 280. It's actually a nice compliment to the car.

    I was ready to turn it down with OBD11 before I drove it. No desire to do that at this stage.

    I would expect all post-WLTP cars to have the same exhaust independent of badge colour.

    It does sound good and people can't believe it's fake when you tell them. I only turned it off as I've grown to prefer listening to the exhaust grumble.

    Anyone know anyone with a 5 door copper badged 290? Really interested to find out if I can actually get a Res Delete or now when the car comes.

    I found out today if you put the car in eco mode in the individual setting it turns off the soundacktor. You can then pull down on the gearstick to put the car in sport or move it to manual and the soundacktor stays off. I think I prefer it with it off this is the first time I heard the dsg farts as well although there more a thud and not very loud. Also note when you get back into the car it doesn't stay in eco mode but the soundacktor stays off bonus.

    Hi, I haven’t posted on this thread before but I found it via another thread, Who’s ordered a Cupra. I’m waiting for my Cupra to hopefully arrive in early March but was already very interested in this topic beforehand. I’ve found this video some of you may like but it’s with the 2016/2017 Cupra 290. @ 3:40 the guy showes how to constantly get the exhaust to pop. Here’s the link if you’re interested Enjoy :)

    The new 290 is similar in that regard, you can get the exhaust to pop when you want, but not quite as loud as the old 290...

    Would be great if someone with a new Copra 290 tried this to see if the results are similar.

    So the past days I've been trying to get good footage of a louder high load fart. It's taking a while to even find a suitable area for experiments. It needs to be an area where you start at low speed, but not too low as that will just cause wheel spin, and not too high as you'll be going too fast very quickly.
    I found a decent spot where I could accelerate from 15-ish to 50-ish and made some recordings. Sadly my GoPro made a mess of it and the material is basically unusable... I'll have to make another attempt soon, probably next weekend.

    The good news is that, given the right circumstances, I can get it to fart somewhat reliably.

    Sidenote: jeez this car is fast. I really don't get why anyone would get a tune on this. The awd ST, maybe, but anything more in the 5 door will just end up in lots of tire smoke...
