    Took mine to get a new cambelt, water pump, replaced coolant/antifreeze. Shes running sweet, feel as if its quieter and smoother, but must be just imagining it, although they could have tightened the engine mounts. :p

    Today my FR and I beat the official urban MPG :) 30.2mpg doing the 8 mile round trip to my work and back through Edinburgh. Dull, but didn't get me there any quicker or slower.

    Beating the combined shouldn't be impossible (next challenge), but I'm not looking forward to the extra urban challenge as I don't like sitting on a motorway at 50.

    We also stared at each other in/out of the window a fair bit. Does that count?

    and a few pics cause I hope I can now...
    244bhp, 68bhp, 211bhp

    Mate, you ever thought about getting the spoiler for the back of your car?

    I bought the spoiler & skirts but decided against them and sold them on. The spoiler does keep crossing my mind though; http://www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=326152&page=2

    Thanks mate. It's a cup spoiler from Germany. I'll be honest I didn't notice change in terms of handling / aerodynamics. It is quite heavy for what it is though.

    Your car would be complete with the spoiler and skirts mate

    Leons look plain (mine included) without the spoiler I reckon :(

    I think the spoiler would finish it nicely. Still feel like the skirts are a bit too aftermarket looking for me. May try it when I eventually run out o chassis / power mods to do lol

    Thing is though, your car is pretty low anyway, so I don't think the side skirts would be needed. I haven't modified my car at all, been so skint recently since my girlfriend lost her job, but she has got a new one now, so a remap + decent alloys (hate the standard FR 17" ones :cry:) will be on the way soon

    You got anything else planned mate?

    Glad things are looking up mate, modding slowed down when I got married lol, more so when we found out tfsi_jnr is on his way!

    Plenty more planned!

    Congratulations mate! Is it a boy or a girl? Aye things are looking up for once, so I think I'll have to treat meself to a remap. It would be rude not to wouldn't it ;)?

    You've got plenty more planned?!? What more can you do after stage 2 lol!!
