Well after going boring for the last few years I got offered a well looked after Leon Cupra 1.8T 2002 model, this car comes with full history and has already had some little tuning bits done

Jobs done just before I bought it include a Cambelt kit with all tensioners, metal impeller water pump, N75 valve, new dumpvalve (oe spec), set of genuine coils and a full service using genuine parts oh and a full electric leather interior...

and a few things done since include Toyosport decat, Magnex 2.5" exhaust, Powerflex dog bone mount, s2000 filter and then a remap (taking all the tuning parts fitted into account)

and it's currently showing 246bhp at flywheel and certainly pulls like it has!! Next plans are undecided and I do like the de-badged sleeper look it currently has!
I am looking at tightening the chassis a bit although don't fancy lowering it too much, oh and the brakes are having some work (even at 312mm they do feel over whelmed at times!)
