SEAT Leon 20VT Cupra......or is it.....you decide!
Ok folks, after my last video of my SEAT Leon Cupra accelerating from 0-100Mph there appear to be a lot of naysayers suggesting that the car can't be a Cupra, they have white dials, or never had that engine etc. So here is a very rough and ready video I put together of all of the photos I got of the car before I sold it back in December 2004.
The early pics show the car at Silverstone being displayed in the paddock as part of a SEATCupra.net display.
There are some in the middle that show the Cupra badging.
Then some taken with the car that replaced it, a Saab 9-3 Vector Sport, this was a complete let-down after the SEAT, went wrong more than it went right, it was like having it on a timeshare with the dealer!! Nice and comfy and fast when it did go though!
I then replaced that with an Audi A4 Cabriolet in December 2007 and am due to change that for an Audi S5 later this year.
If you want to continue the discussion then feel free, it just ruins the illusion that I drove a Cupra for 3 years and 70,000 miles when I consider that the dealership must have stuck the Cupra badge on and retro-fitted the 6-speed gearbox, the 1.8 20VT engine, the leather electrically adjustable seats, the folding mirrors, the 6-disc multichanger etc.
Seriously 20VT Sport, Cupra whatever...the badging was Cupra and the car was great! I'd have another, had SEAT not seriously cheapened the interior in the new model, much cheaper plastics and no soundproofing in the bulkhead.....so loud inside....or maybe I have just gone soft having driven an Audi for a few years!

Golf MKIV GTi 1.8T OEM Dog Bone Mount Movement
Just a quick video so that I could see myself (and show to others) when
starting the car and blipping the throttle just how much movement there is
in the dog bone mount. Obviously under load this movement will be much
At this point I've had the car 3 days and I've had a rather jerky gear
change, even when being gentle on the clutch which is a little annoying!
Having done some research, it appears that this is extremely common and
nearly always due to the rear bush of the mount becoming very weak. I'm
intending to replace it with the softer diesel Powerflex bush (PFF85-420R -
coloured red) as these appear to be much harder-wearing than OEM, without
causing unwanted cabin vibrations that a lot of people are experiencing
with the slightly harder petrol version (PFF85-420 - coloured yellow).
I also have some starter motor noise!!

Seat Leon Cupra 0-100 Mph
This is a video of my old car accelerating from 0-100Mph, I really miss
that car!! But as you will see from the comments, it was really really
slow! Oh and I should have disengaged the TCS, but wasn't expecting
something called YouTube to be invented years after I shot this!
