    The standard bolts were 1-2mm too long, so needed a little grinding..! :(
    When first fitted I was unsure it would be any good..

    AFAIK the track width now is the same at both front and rear?!
    Had quite bad problems before, with the car tracking, and wanting to go all over the place. And yes, the roads suck up here. But hey?! Problems are now almost gone. Can even let go of the steering wheel! :rofl:

    yes I could go a bit lower. Especially at the front, I'm aware of that, thanks.

    Yeah I know. deleted a few hundred pics off of my ImageShack.. Smart right?
    Will do an attempt at uploading and posting at least important ones, but need a few spare hours at the computer first..!

    I don't know if I could get temporarily access to edit all earlier posts in my rr??

    Tried making myself a little circuit at work, to cut the footwell lights completely at the bottom of the dimmer, but didn't turn out as hoped. Might have to measure the bottom voltage again, then order an special zener diode! :)

    might do an new RR as so many of the pics are missing, if I find the time that is..

    whats new? well, N75 is. So limp mode and boost issues are gone, wich is fun! ;)

    Other than that I fitted a 100w xenon kit for the full beam, 6000k. wasn't super happy with the results, as the inside of the glass is cracked and in bad condition, so thereis an dark spot in the middle of the road! :D anyways its better than before all in all, but I might just get a new/used pair of lights..

    E: Oh and I had a little incident with a huge block of compact snow/ice that took my R lip off. :(
    Guess it wont be coming on agian before summer. PS had it on there with about 20 screws, so was a pretty hard hit..

    yep its out there.. /showthread.php?t=389967

    send me an pm or an mail if you have any questions, or simply ask here.
    reason for selling is that I've just bought a house, and the second child is on its way so I need something a tad more practical.

    Very good looking car. I really like the double rear lights and I would like to try to do that on my own Leon.

    I saw your car at finn.no also. Looks really good.
    Also like you mention in your salesthread, I can't belive how overpriced Leons are in Norway.
    I see one -02 LC4 on finn.no that they want £ 14 500 !

    Yes, it has been down a couple of months now.
    I sent Zamot a PM on bilforumet.no and it seems like he had some issues upgrading the system from the internet supplier, which give access to the webhotel software (e.g. forums). But due to the failed update and lack of time and knowledge about php, databases and things like that, he is uncertain when seatforum will be up and running again. It seems like he want the forum up and running again, but unfortunately we do not know when that is going to happen.

    I would gladly help him out with the issue, but unfortunately I don't have so much knowledge about php and databases either:( Luckily we got seatcupra.net, but it would also be great to have a Norwegian forum also :)

    Thanx G-A.
    Theres an guide on SCN as well: /showthread.php?t=344820

    Didn't sell it as it decided to let me down the vary same week I put it out there. Been busy with everything else..:(

    At the moment it is waiting on new O-rings for the injectors, hopefully that will solve the starting issuse and the rough running below ~2600 PRM.

    with a fresh MOT I will put it up sale agian, and hopefully I would get about £7k. If not I'll rather put in the barn for 20 years :D
