Wire_Gal's Cupra!

I just thought I would share some pics of my fab new car!

I have had it for about six weeks now and I love it.. I'm slowly getting used to its looks! Drives like a dream... its so good to be able to go over speedbumps without the fear of the suspension creaking or worrying about using the clutch!

The only downside so far is that no one takes me on at traffic lights

I have a few mods in the pipeline but it will be a slow progress, but of course, I have changed the grille already

Special thanks must go to Gers for all of his help

Does it feel like a big car? Only cos it looks like one.

Have you been on E38? Some savage Dubs on there

Wow at first I didn't really think much of it... But now, what can I say? -- Stick some coilovers on!
It looks absolute fab. I would wish to have one...
I'm guessing there's no interior rattles unlike our civics?

Get the spoiler from the K1 cupra as that would top it off well. Always liked the Leon ever since my brother got his a few years ago.

You are guessing correctly Thanks, its certainly a grower with its looks. The same can be said for its owner lol.

Looking sweeeeeeeeeet The red calipers look nice with the silver...mmmmmmm big boyos too

Really good to hear your enjoying the car, I told you...you should have got some 1.6S side decals, you'd get plenty of traffic light action then lol

the new car looks nice liz !! the front looks great, not sure about the rear tho,
i tested a leon before buying my car, but hated the 80's walkman look of the stereo

what other mods you got planed ?
engine tuning or just cosmetic ??

will keep an eye out around warrington for you,
i reckon i could do you in my van from the lights
ikea to marks & spencers for V5's ??

only joking mate !!
good luck with the car,

happy motoring !!
