    ACC meaning adaptive chassis control, like drive select modes comfort / sport / Cupra?

    What kind of issues do they have?

    ACC meaning Adaptive Cruise Control

    (DCC = Dynamic Chassis Control)

    Uh oh.

    I don't have ACC then. Just plain old cruise control.
    What kind of trouble can I expect?

    This may sway my decision to upgrade to a newer fully specced cupra in the near future.

    All kinds of errors and 'cruise control disabled' messages... apparently...

    I only have ever had VAG cars with ACC so never have had first hand experience of the probs.

    If you dont have the ACC then don't do it, dont break anything but gives you lots of errors.

    Still driving my courtesy car 2.0 DSG FR Sport. Ordered a 1.5 FR DSG late September and arrived mid February with faults on all steering wheel functions including paddles intermittently not working, steering wheel lights staying on all night when locked etc. So rejected the car! And another new one on order should be arriving within the next 2-3 weeks.
    It's been a long wait but my dealer has really looked after me and I am loving the courtesy car.

    Worth noting that any tint to the front windows is illegal as they’re already at the limit. Can potentially invalidate your insurance in an accident as well. #JustSayin

    I thought OEM was 20% on the front? OEM 30% makes more sense to be honest! You are allowed 30% (70% of light through), as you said any higher it's illegal but I never got pulled when I had it back in the corsa 1.2 days with my 50% front tints :roflmao:

    Plus it’s a very good in for police to look further and or at you and your passengers

    Simple way of coppers finding a reason to pull and issue fines

    Booked her in for a service and arranged a CUPRA Ateca for the day

    Discussed the ABT module and it’s availability for my CUPRA 300 and was told it could be arranged at a cost of approx £2000. The £500 cost for the ABT module on the CUPRA R ST comes with a £1500 cash back deal from ABT to the dealer.
