Today I got around to installing my strut brace. Not too complicated a job.
Purposely missed the exit in Westfield White City’s rather large underground parking extension, (first time being down there in years), so I could boost and snap a gear up in all echoness glory!
Down there you really get an appreciation for how loud the car is, also engaging launch pinging without releasing does not annoy the other half.. promise
OH and also, came face to face with my first 19 plate Cupra, and it was only an exact twin of mine! The fella and his passengers were equally as excited as I was and the girlfriend thought we were all immature
Parked right next to a Golf Gti
Thoroughly washed and waxed the car in time for the rain tomorrow .
It was epic. No other word. One sitting, devoured the lot on my own.

My Copra has sat quietly on the drive today, dwarfed by the JEEP Compass next to it... The wife's FIAT 500 has got a leaking clutch hose (I know!) and the courtesy car is a brand new JEEP. It is the most God awful thing I have driven in a long time though. Can't even face driving it for the novelty value it's that bad
Fitted the paddle extensions from Betts-4 just now. Fit nicely and no issues with being stick on. Fall to hand nicely and look good.
Do you have any photos?
Here you go
Still have some sets if anyone wants them £24 for the forum
Bought a new set of alloys for winter, as they are 17” again, i had to test-fit them to be shure they clear the front brake calipers. All fine and they suite well, at least in my own opinion.
Well this is happening this morning
You will not regret it. Loved mine. Ask them if they'll ever do one for the 4 drive/Golf R Estate haha.
Revved the car...
And got some pops and bangs!
Might not be exciting for you lot, but my 2014 Cupra 280 hasn't ever done this before. I've constantly complained about the muted exhaust that just sounded like gas coming out of a tube, and looked into getting one of them powervalve systems you're talking about above. Might not need to now.
Car appreciation has gone up tenfold!
Also just had my mate install my hardwire kit for a dashcam, and fix my 12v socket that hasn't worked since I purchased the car. Godsend!
To be honest you don't get too many pops and bangs with the BCS as the valve closes off throttle.
Got myself together and installed the turbo muffler delete ordered from eBay. What a PITA to do it really, was much easier to change the turbo inlet pipe for the bigger one. Doesnt really feel any noticeable increase on boost or sound, but at least i know they are upgraded.
Quality of the turbo muffler delete is awesome, it looks exactly the same as the VWR one (only without the logos), fits perfectly and the price was only 18eur with the postage.
I rather like those wheels, what make/model are they please?
Since the early days of sat navs I have always had them on mute.
One of the most annoying things ever along with Alexa these days lol
My new dashcam (nextbase 522) has Alexa built in..... I mean come on ffs are people seriously gunna be talking to a fookin dashcam now! Give me strength... dashcam is great though!
