  1. General Motoring Discussion
    Seat was aimed at becoming the VW version of Alfa. A Latin mainstream brand . And it failed. It’s like the other Skoda. But they had a sporty badged version of some of its cars; Cupra. Now that is on some Seat cars instead of the Seat badge. It’s a brand. What...

    I remember one member sold there Gta and bought a 225. Well I bought one the other day for the wife as the x5 was playing up and I got fed up and the cupra was well priced. Ok car but for 225 I expected a bit more go lol, this one is standard apart from and engine rebuild which included forged...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    The Seat LCR splitter seems to fit a lot of cars. I fitted one to my old Audi S3. Has anyone fitted it to Brera/159? Has it been done? The splitters only £40 so could potentially be a cheap subtle mod.
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Before I spend £39 on a lip for my GT I thought I'd check first if it will fit . I know the Seat Cupra lip ( 1ML805903 ) fits a 159 and 147 but need to make sure its ok for a GT . if it is does it need much moding - I have searched the forum but its mainly 147 biased . Thanks in advance .

    I have been looking around at possible replacements for my BMW and have noticed that Seat Leon Cupras seem really good value for money. (Good ones for around £1750 upwards) They have 5 doors, look pretty good and have 1.8 Turbo engines, so tick quite a few boxes for me. I know they are pretty...
  6. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    after my altezza rs the alfa feels a little bit puny so im wanting to give it more of an aggresive front end look, any ideas? was thinking of a seat leon cupra splitter as i love them just to see if anyones done this before or tried a splitter from another car that suited?
  9. Alfa GTA
    obviously a 'theoretical' test.... all i can say these little spanish things are pretty (very) quick... but no match for a gta :cheese: spanked by an old alfa estate! :D :inlove:
  10. Alfa MiTo
    Tested in Autoexpress this week. The Germano/Spansih car wins. Less than £500 dearer and boasts a 7 speed DSG box as standard plus it significantly quicker die to dual charging (super & turbo charged). They say the MiTo has dull & lifeless steering and poor interior plastics, which, in...

    Here are the new Cupra's statistics: £400 quid less than a Golf GTI 30bhps more 2 additional doors 0 to 100km/h in 6.4 seconds Am I the only one thinking VW must be thinking its clients are dummies? Who on Earth would want to buy a Golf GTI instead?
  14. Alfa GTA
    Took the GTA out for a family jaunt this afternoon - lovely day, perfect driving. On the way home I found myself being 'tagged' by a black Leon Cupra R - twin piped rear muffler so not the newest version I think?. The road was twisty so there were no passing places unless you were suicidal. I...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
