  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have bought a Lester spoiler for my GT but am not 100% decided on it as it looks a little bit too much for my tastes when I offered it up to the car. It's the one in the link below which I am now selling if anyone is interested for £50, as it has a small chip at the one corner and 2 small...

    My wife recently wrote off her much loved Audi TT and has replaced it with a Seat Leon. It's a year or so old and has 23k miles. My first impressions: Pros: It has rear doors, rear seats and a boot that are actually useful (compared to the TT ;)) Engine is very quiet and smooth when warm, not...

    Not bad looking for a stretched 5-door hatchback La Nouvelle SEAT Leon ST – Break – Catalogue et tarifs | SEAT.fr :thumbs:
  4. 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.
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, I’ve been a Mito owner for 4.5 years now and loved it. However, I’m in the market for a new car and to take advantage of some excellent deals offered to me, I need to make a pretty quick decision. It’s a tosh up between the Giulietta Sportiva (petrol, manual, 170 MA) or the new Seat...
  6. Introduce Yourself
    Hi, i am from Bloemfontein in South Africa. Driving a 1997 164 30L 24v, 1976 Alfa Spider and a 1985 Alfa 33TI which i bought new. I am looking for set of rear struts on the 164 as well as the rubber mounting keeping the steering rack in place.
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    you know how it goes when bored of a bank holiday weekend, I was having a poke around playing with ideas and I remembered an old trick some of the mazda boys used to use of fitting a Seat Leon (02-05 model I think) front splitter to the car just to add a little bit of extra detail to the front...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Some might say that a Seat Leon is a better buy than a G. Discuss.

    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...
  10. 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?

    Has any one any thoughts on this car.
  12. 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:

    Had a Seat Leon hire car today, I think it was fited with the new 2.0 TDi engine, so about 140BHP, 200lbft+ of torque. Impressions..... Dash etc quite nice, but very thick pillars and very claustrophobic. Couldn't get a comfortable driving position. Seats too flat; nearly as uncomfortable as a...

    Surely I can't be the only one who's noticed that the designers on the latest trim Seat Leon seem to have taken it straight from our beloved Alfa 147?! And yet when I do a search I can't see anyone else noticing this. They seem to have copied loads, right down to the hidden handles on the rear...

    Every time I see a SEAT Leon (the 2006 version), I am thankful that I drive an Alfa 147. I'm not saying it's a BAD car - I wouldn't know as I have never driven one - but it makes me thankful that the guy who designed it, Walter Da Silva, got his design right the first time he tried it when he...

    Just took the girlfriends car out for a spin and just before i got home a fault light lit up in all its orangy goodness. It looks like an engine management light and the book describes it as a Diagnosis / Excessive pollution light. Does anyone know of a possible cause for this or know how to...

    I love the new shape Seat Leons so much that it was a close call for me between my GTV and plumping for a Leon a couple of months back. Although i thinks 147s are nice looking cars, i feel the Leon is sexier and more beautiful and that it really should have been an Alfa! :p
