    Got a panicked call at 6:30 this morning from my sister who said her headlights weren't working and that she couldn't drive down the motorway to work in the dark with no headlights.. Reluctantly gave her my Cupra 280 keys and have ended up with this for the day.. I get to it 30 minutes later and the lights work fine.... I'm thinking a ploy just to get to drive my Cupra...? Anyone else agree?? [​IMG]

    It upsets all the Car Detailers like @Legojon @Jimbobcook and @paddy6789 who spent £££££ on detailing products and their cars still don't look as clean as @theoldboy 's.

    They just need to realise its the colour Nevada White just being awesome ;)

    What you don't realise is that his car was black when he bought it.

    This is quite random but i wasn't sure where to post.

    Anybody else feel like their side mirrors are so far forward.. As in close to the driver?

    No, the only thing that's too far forward are the window switches. I keep hitting the rear one!

    I must admit as i've got used to driving it now i don't notice it, but when i picked it up i was surprised at how far up the door they are, may aswell have them on the rear doors :blink:

    I did that too.

    They are ridiculously placed.
    Far too far away from the driver.

    Wait.... I always thought the whole washing up liquid idea was a sarcastic comment like the oiling your brakes one.... Am I wrong??

    A friend of mine is a professional body repair and restoration worker, does a lot of work repairing vintage ferarris and classic american cars. Very knowledgeable bloke. He uses fairy liquid to wash cars, however, he did it on one of mine and it left speckling on the paint work.

    May have something to do with modern paints. In the past they'd of made paint out of anything, these days with stricter environmental laws and health considerations the paintwork isn't as hardier. Bring back lead paint I say haha ;)

    Not just the Leon, even on my Volvo V40, (if not looking) I auto wind down the rears when not looking, make me look like a proper muppet...'why is he opening his rears?' Didn't have this problem with the Ibiza, as it was a 3 door!

    Did the old swapping the front and rear wheels around... The michelin ps4 tires only lasted 9 months need to up the LSD settings a smidge, or perhaps not be too heavy footed. It's just too much fun!
