    I am looking at getting a new car.
    Its either a 2004 cupra r bam225 leon
    Or a 2007 TFSI 2litre turbo leon
    Both have about the same mileage 100k
    What would people recommend.

    Tuning wise both would get the same power with similar mods

    All comes down to which youd rather live with day to day as the tfsi sport will remain more modern looking

    Must admit if i didnt buy my mk2 cupra i would have choose a mk1 lcr

    Mk1 R is the best looking car of the 2.

    I had a mk1 Cupra R and now have a mk2 leon Cupra. In my opinion I preferred driving the R more. Just felt better put together and more of a drivers car.

    I would go with the mk1 LCR. I have a mk3 290 now and some days still miss my old LCR.

    As has been said it's a very solid car and gives such great feedback that makes it so fun.
