    Cheers . I do like the Red/Black contrast.

    There are options to change the Seat Bonnet and Boot S Badges to Black ones as @Damo H and @Deano j1971 have done. Other options are to plastidip them or wrap them.

    You should have kept quiet and waited till I'd left it in the oven for 45 minutes!

    I had a play with with a lovely 14 plate Alpina B3 on an empty 'Mexican highway'

    I'm not up to date about the Alpina cars so wasn't sure if it was petrol or diesel but it looked lovely with the quad exhausts!

    Anyways, my standard 290 nailed it easily to highway speeds then I had to slow down a bit but he kept on it so I followed flat out and it wasn't an effort to catch him up before silly speed and traffic. At least the Alpina driver was sensible like myself and slowed down. It's funny that after a blast we all drive like saints!

    A courtesy light flash and hazard flick were given. It's very rarely that I've used the Cupra in anger but it's a bloody fast car!

    Quite impressive specs on that! The Cupra battled well!

    I've seen off many a powerful car in a Cupra. I can remember undertaking a full fat Nissan 370z on full chat! This EA888 engine is a corker when on full chat.

    The relentless pull that the car has all the way to the vmax is impressive. It doesn't give up!

    God knows what the stage 2 cars do!

    Not so much made me smile but what made me laugh today:
    Seeing the price of a brand new Ford Focus st in the local dealer while waiting for a radio code for the wife’s S max.
    I’m sure the st is a decent car to drive but 35 grand with a couple of options is ridiculous!
    Cheap plastics and the gap between the top of the steering column to where it meets the underside of the dash is made of some cheap looking fake, creased leatherette type material.
    Looks like something British leyland would have put in one of their 1970’s offerings.
    The 40 grand Mustang looked good value in comparison even if it did have the eco boost engine in it. Lol

    Nah, Fords are way over priced for what they are and what you get for the money.

    Watching some guy in his Audi TTRS trying to impress some youngish lasses in their Fiat Abarth and then hearing them say what a Knob and then saying my CUPRA looked much nicer

    The £11 shock absorber that you can get for my Leon from ECP,that made me laugh.

    I may need a new rear set soon but I’m not sure of the quality....
