    Mine also arrived at Grimsby on the 8th March. Was due for delivery on the 27th but got cancelled. Which dealer did yours come from?

    It's got plenty of kick to it, thats for sure. My 'fun' car is a 3.0 Z4 with a straight 6, the Cupra could quite easily leave it for dead once you get over the FWD grip limitations, I'm sure. Certainly feels like it picks up a lot faster when rolling, but I expect thats more down to the smart auto box and the bucket loads of torque the engine spits out.

    Doesn't quite have the sound of a de-res'd Straight 6 engine/exhaust though :clap:

    My car arrived just over a week earlier than yours and was delivered about 2 weeks later. As soon as i knew which ship the car was on (about 2 weeks before it arrived in the UK) i was on the blower to the dealer organising a delivery slot. My car was not actually confirmed to be delivered until about 8 hours before it was on my drive, otherwise i'd of had to wait another two weeks.

    Some people just need a push (with a very sharp pointy stick)

    Mine will be a year old in July! That has flown by. Only managed about 3.5k miles and I think it will still be under 4k by the time it's a year old.
    Hopefully the garages are open in time for it's first service.
    Awesome car, I can see myself keeping this one for a long time.

    Hi guys,
    please bear with me because this is the first time to actually post anything on a blog before (I always used to read but never posted hahahha- i know its pretty late but better late than never)
    So i just got the Leon Cupra 290 2.0 Tsi 5dr 6 speed DSG (with the copper seat logo), however the car comes with the 19inch rims 235/35/R19, and the streets in Egypt are pretty nasty alot of potholes etc ...
    I am aware that the 18 inch rims fit ...

    My question is : will the 17 inch rims fit my cupra ? will there be any issue with the brake size ? Has anyone fitted a 17inch before and tried it out ? and what is the recommended tire size for a 17 inch rims. If there are any pics can someone please post them so i can see how they look.
    Thanks guys
    OT

    According to the company I got my wheels from, minimum is 18" wheels due to the brake calipers, he did a search on the computer, so that's what I got for my winter wheels. If you have the big brake kit 19" is minimum.

    Not on my ST it doesn't. Only time the soundaktor does anything is when I select Cupra mode...... Does bring a grin up (shouldn't really do for a 70 year old driver but who cares!!)

    You can easily disable it using Carista, was the first thing I did when I got my car. You can also physically disconnect the cable but I've not tried that as it was not needed since I had Carista.

    Is it just me who really doesn't mind having a bit of extra noise? Yeah sure it's not 'real', but does it matter? Or perhaps this is just due to my other car being a straight 6 with a modded exhaust, even in Cupra mode the Leon sounds quiet to what I'm used to...

    I also ordered a Cupra 290 Lux back in Mid Jan. Just out of interest I chased the order up today with Seat UK, expecting to be told it was still in build. Surprisingly, my car has been delivered to the dealership and has already been assigned a registration number. This is the first I knew of it because the dealership is currently shut.

    Your new car might not be as far away as you may think. :)
