    What are your views on the Seat Leon Cupra R (225bhp)?

    I'm thinking of selling my VX220 and getting one of these, brand new as well.
    Yes it really is a 1.3!!

    Only critism I've heard levelled at the car is the question about the weight distribution and balance.

    Other than that, a stonking engine, good build , a good chassis and at a good price.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    Great cars IMHO Very tuneable engines (260+Bhp from a remap only ) and awesome brakes to keep it all under control.

    The only downside I have heard of them is actually getting hold of the new 225 spec ones. The 225 were released in limited numbers and snapped up quickly. I had a friend looking for one with the help of his local SEAT Mainstealer but the 210 spec ones are easier to find. He ended up getting a CTR

    The difference between the two engines I believe (apart from teh 15 bhp) is that the 225 spec ones have Variable Valve Timing, whereas the 210 doesn't.

    Defo go for black if you can. A nightmare to stay clean but look stunning when they are.
