Yes absolutely the standard R doesn't have it. See Harry's garage video and hear him moan about it.

Ffs so I must have driven a performance pack car last week  :sick:

Just watched that.
Quite an enjoyable vid, both very down to Earth guys.
I do have a big soft spot for the Alpine.

Nobby on cars CS review https://youtu.be/_HSnXGi394s

Surprisingly says no pops and bangs, unlike other reviewers/videos and also says cs has weight saving over standard gti, not heard that before either.

Well, the brake callipers are lighter.... so yes, maybe a little lighter but AFAIK that's it! Whether the bigger spoiler then offsets it though... could be a couple of kilos lighter max I'd say.

The new Cupra Leon 300 is looking very tempting against the CS!

Had a play on the configurator after watching the Autotrader review on AT. Spec'd up to £38,450 with adding pan roof, urban silver and the basic driver safety pack (ACC, HBA, traffic sign) which is £220.



Obviously being a SEAT, sorry Cupra, it's loaded so all the toys including 15 way DCC, 19s, heated leather bucket seats etc.

The added bonus is real buttons on the steering wheel! Would any Mk8 owners choose real buttons for the steering if they could?

I'm yet to sit in one or even have a proper look around a Mk8 but they are growing on me looks-wise and the CS and R are definitely the pick of the bunch.

This will definitely be a 'Sleeper', also I would imagine second hand values will fall harder so more of a bargain?
