Different reviews are saying different things on the cupra.

Also as a side note i have a few mates who work for car companys and i know what sort of PREP goes into the press cars. Some cars are quite different to the show room models. wink.gif

NEVER EVER judge a car by magazine reviews i have seen first hand and been shown what extras some manufacturers do to there press cars to get favourable reviews. I will never trust a magazine review EVER again not that the journos were ever biased to start with lol.

Are you going to put your 19" BBS CH wheels on your new Ed30 ?? Wouldn't it devalue the Limited Edition status ?

yep there going on it, not sure whether to keep the edition 30 wheels so i can put it back to standard to sell it, then sell the 19" ch .or just sell the edition 30 wheels, if that makes sense confused.gif

Nice spec and good choice of colour, IMO reflex silver suits the GTI well. Look forward to seeing some pics when you get it. beerchug.gif

I don't blame you. Might be worth keeping the originals though.

You'd be mad not to keep them IMO.

Put them on when you sell and they'll be brand new... making the car look very very well looked after. 169144-ok.gifbeerchug.gif

....I agree with LeMan - Madness not to keep them for when you sell.

Off topic, but i just heard a new ST go down my road. Have to say it sounded very very nice (V5 warble with a little whistle!)... Had trouble laying down the power though.

Yes a straight 5 has a nice sound, I love old Audis for it the Fiat 5 cylinder 20V units also has a similar sound to the Volvo/Ford one. The Golf mk4 V5/Toledo V5 10V & 20V never sounded quite the same did not have the deep worble but not far off.

Their First Drive review gives the Edition 30 4 stars (presumably out of 5)

Is the ED30 suspension lower than the standard GTI or have they got that wrong in the article?

Confused me too - not sure if they mean lowered by 15mm compared to the standard GTI.
