My new FR Supercopa...

I picked my new car up last week. I'm well happy with it. Spec is:
Seat Leon FR+ Supercopa
2.0 tdi (170)
Full FR spec but with:
Full media 2.2 (Nav/blutooth/ipod etc)
Adaptive Bi Xenons
18" BBS black upgrade rims

The car drives lovely. Handling is very good, its got an electronic kind of ltd slip diff, whatever its called. Does a pretty good job too. Ride is quite firm, but thats how I like it. The interiour quality isnt as good as Audi, but not far off and there are absolutely no creaks or rattles. Fuel economy is about 48 mpg on a run which is pretty good for me. I blagged such a cracking deal from Marshall Seat Cambridge that this was a no brainer. And I don't miss the Prius one bit The only mods I plan on doing are to remove the Leon badges on the boot, lower it on Eibach Sportlines and maybe do the callipers red. Saying that though, Ive 3 years on the warranty, if the suspension voids it I obviously wouldnt bother doing it.

Anyway, heres a few pics, sorry about the quality, my lens on the Galaxy must have been smudged are sommat...and again apologies for the totally shite effort at doing the numberplates.....anyways...











and just for Mistryn - The outgoing supercar...





I know she's not in the same league as Palmnuts's SLS...but I really, really like it (at the mo)...

Always liked the mk2 Leon, especially with that BTCC body kit.

That look the bollocks; congrats. Know very little about the Leon but always thought the cooking versions looked good. Be interested to see some interior shots if you get chance. Enjoy.

Is this brand new? How much are these bad-boys? Much discount?

Very smart looking car Mart,nicely aggressive with it.

I'm guessing the model name had nothing to do with the choice

Lol no, It only clicked a few days after lol. Maybe subliminal?

Rog, it's 3 months old now with a few k on the clock, but I have the full 3 year warranty etc. was the bosses car. Seat bought this, which is why they gave me such a good deal on it, they could do what they liked. Book on this one is 24k. I got it soooooo much cheaper than that

Did you buy it?

V.nice op, best colour and really emphasises the extra body styling and deep scoops

Be prepared to be challenged to a duel by spotty teens in their saxos and pugs!

I think deals on them are pretty good at the moment as there is a new one coming out in a few months. The new one looks great, better styling than the Golf and better value for money than the A3 but pretty much the exact same car built on the same platform.

In my opinion the Leon has aged better than most cars. The design of this model is now about 7 years old yet it still looks better than most cars. They also drive very well. We had a bog standard Ibiza sport for my wife and the steering was sharp as anything with a surprisingly nippy little engine.

EDIT: Got my info wrong. The new Leon is actually out. Looks great.

Lovely motor Mart. Looks very aggressive.
Any plan to get the roof wrapped in black?
