    I can't see any explanation what the difference is between 2 way, 4 way and plug and play. I'm probably missing something obvious in the listings for the rear adaptors. I presume yours had the adjustable delay control too?

    Yeah it has the adjustable delay on mine - I left it on the highest setting for what’s in the video. Just the right amount of delay.

    I got mine from aliexpress, same as two mates I know and they are both decent enough quality. I paid £30 for mine on 11.11 single day

    Went with the bluefin in the end much easier to use and the £75 of today on eBay made it easy choice, and I presume it’s the stage 1 and no expense in the extra £27 app with the other device can’t wait

    Fitter the de rigueur, or should I say de Rieger, styling mod to the ST. Well made and easy to fit. Very pleased with the finished article.

    Thanks.To lift front end I used a trolley jack and axel stands. The splitter is supplied with a fitting kit which consists of self-tapping screws and spire/U clips. Four existing screws plus additional holes drilled in the underside of the front bumper and the remaining screws and clips are usedt secure it. The front wheels need to removed to access the backside of the bumper to fit the clips for some of the screws.

    I did it single handed, but would be easier with a second person. It's aligned with the four pre-existing screws. Some people also use an adhesive, it is solid without it.

    I've got some side skirts to get fitted next.

    Well me and my MK3 Leon didn’t do anything exciting today but I did arrive home to THREE letters from France, each one a speeding fine from my trip two weeks ago. One for €90 and the other two for €45.

    There was me thinking speed cameras in France cant catch an English car, how wrong I was! I remember being flashed by quite a few speed cameras too (actually more than three!)

    Things must have changed recently as I drove through France on four occasions last year triggering quite a few cameras and never had any fines come through. Be careful out there guys!

    Full service.
    Bought all the parts and fluids and got my local reliable tech to do it all. (Oil, oil filter, air filter, pollen filter, brake fluid, coolant).

    2nd MOT.
    Passed no advisories. My car also seems to be zero emissions according to the printout, perhaps I can avoid the Congestion Charge?!

    Bit of a clean. Made sure all the drain points are clear, they seem to block easily, but a wipe down and poke with a blunt stick does the trick. Even the filler recess drain clogs up despite being largely enclosed.

    Replacement. Thinking of replacing my Leon, but then I can't find anything I like more.
    Still really enjoy driving it and the low running costs. Don't want a 5 door so that is an issue.

    My driveway is stones so when I done mine I just made a pile for the wheels and dug a hole where I needed to get my arm under.

    Yay for the cold months where my right headlight is as sleepy as I am and stays pretty much on the floor and my rear wiper decides to stop where it feels like it... I forgot about those "winter features" for at least 8 months!

    Has anyone actually paid to replace the regulator in the headlight know how much it cost?

    Took it to SEAT to get a couple of things sorted under warranty. They have given me this awful Citroen, Cactus thing as a courtesy car. Sounds like a tractor and it's a petrol!

    Made the Cupra letters copper to match the badge.
    Also attempted to add copper bumper inlays and failed, damn creases .

    Cheers, I'm still waiting on a WLTP one. They've done it for the new WLTP Golf R so no reason why they can't for the Leon.
