    Leon cupra r 225

    Just wanting to know if anyone on here has owned/driven one of these and your opinions. Currently have a ACT and thinking about one of these for my next car, so looking at comparisons between MPG/performance/reliability etc.

    Cheers

    On the R the Mafs can go and the coil packs too.
    Saying that i have had my Leon cupra 180 bhp since April 08 and not suffered either off them.
    Can get nice bhp with a re-map check out http://www.seatcupra.net/

    Problems when it rains isn't the best issue to be having living in the uk what sort of price do these cost to be replaced?? I assume having an engine from Audi mileage isn't too much of an issue??

    There is a guide on the seat site i linked too, tube off mastic is all you need really.
    Go to a main dealer for anything and you'll pay.
    Engine do last, pick up pipe can block if longer than normal oil changes are not done.

    Most of my mates drive the r's and one has a standard cupra, i think they look awsome, most of them go VERY well with minimal work and from what it sounds, alot of parts etc are pretty cheap... one of the guys is running about 290bhp and its just hit 157k and its still perfect hes hardly had to touch it
