    Thumbs Up Seat Leon FR 2.0 TDi - Pics

    Here some pics of the new Leon, not the best pics but it was getting on time wise today:
















    I have used it today to go to Kent and back and its a really great car Really pleased with how comfortable it is even after 7 hours driving with a couple of hours break in between, its quick (far to quick for a diesel!) and handles well although it really does need dropping!!!!

    Over all really pleased that we got it over the golf and the astra especially as I have done 7+ hours in it today and not even seen another leon on the roads

    Mods to come are:

    Remap (future)
    ICE upgrade (future)
    Alarm (next couple of weeks)
    Eibach 50mm springs and shocks (new couple of weeks)
    Alloys (in 18's again - future)
    Grill (next couple of weeks)
    Black badges (next couple of weeks)
    Colour coded bonnet plastic and rear bumper plastic black (future)
    Colour code the mirror covers


    Things I would like to do money permitting is paint the centre console, leather trim, exhaust upgrade, induction kit but to be honest I am not really that bothered about them.

    All in all we both love it

    All the new vags are like that, they are hinged at the bottom, takes a bit of getting used to.

    That looks quite mean from the front, will look great with some new rims and dropped

    Alot of the dash looks very bland though especially around that stereo that looks lost there. Other than that though the rest of the interior looks great with some sporty seats. I can see why you chose that over the Astra H. I'm surprised it doesn't have a alarm on it though

    How do you think the plastic back windows will fair from people opening the rear doors with rings on their fingers?

    A lot fo people dont like the interior on them, and I suppose they are bland but everything is too hand and works well, its very easy to get used to the controls due to the layout. I actually like it as its no nonsence but works well.

    It does have an alarm on it andy but I will be putting a better one Good question on the rear doors, I will keep an eye out on that and see how it goes.

    cleaning wise - it needs a damm good detail so I will be in touch with VXRmarc soon to get him to do it so I can then keep on top it. Being black it has loads of swirls in the paint already In that regard it hasnt been that well looked after.

    not really a fan of the looks of it tbh, but find most modern cars take a bit of getting used to so sure the shape will grow on me,

    seats looks very nice tho

    Range rovers and BMWs have that pedal it is strange at first but you get used to it. Car looks great m8 and i like the plans, someone was raving about this car in work a few weeks ago and said it was a bit quick for a durv burner.
