New Cupra Ordered!

67 posts in this topic

Went to pick up my ibiza after it's service this morning, whilst I was there I spoke to a salesmen about the new cupra and arrange for a test drive later in the day.

WOW! what more can you say. The cabin around the stereo is the only thing that lets it down, so much grip and the power is amazing. notworthy.gif

So I ordered one.....not sure on the delivery date. I will know more on Monday...I cannot wait!

Nice one, 169144-ok.gif

Hope you also got a good deal from them too. cool.gif

I must say i am VERY temepted by the cupra myself a huge amount im humming and harring over it seeing i could get 6% from a company i have delt with a few times makes it very tempting too.

Im guessing your talking Leon rather than Ibiza when you say new cupra?

I'm seriously tempted too. Only problem is I think our Leon Sport is causing me back pain, so will want to test one properly.

What colour/spec did you go for Glovepup?

I have gone for Zenith Grey with the Convenience and Bluetooth Pack. Apparently the winter pack is not needed as it has heated jets and mirrors as standard but you cant have heated seats.

I must say the power and grip was amazing. The salemen asked me to boot it in 2nd round a roundabout...OMG!! I bet it's dangerous in the wet though...hehe I'm sure I will find that out soon enough.

Forgot to say. The garage are ringing me on Monday to confirm the delivery timescale. If their is a chance of me getting one sooner in Inferi Black (black with a hint of purple) then I am happy with that.

So 1st choice Zenith Grey and 2nd Inferi Black. Yellow, red, white and the lighter grey do not interest me in the slightest.

Just one thing to point out, and I appreciate it's a personal thing, but EVO slated the Inferi Black. They said it just doesn't work and hides a lot of the detail in the car.

Otherwise, nice spec - it's already pretty loaded anyway. Can you not get heated seats at all? How were the seats? Are they just the same ones as in the sport, or more bucket-like?

They are more bucket like and are really good!

I have liked the inferi black since seing it at the motorshow, I think it looks really good in that colour.

No you cant get heated seats at all. Seats borchures need updating as they state that you can.

The seats are different.

Have a look through http://www.autotitre.com/forum/Forum-Seat-Leon-II-61981p556.htm thread theres loads of pics of leons and also the cupra im sure i have spotted quite a few of the seats in the 570+ pages of that thread lol.

Not sure of the gray myself but its a person thing colour.

I did like the black at the motorshow with its hint of purple i loved it in the show lights but in magazine review photos its doing nothing for me or photos of it posted by owners but ive fallen for silver which was unexpected shocked.gif after seeing some good photos of it.

I do wish they had done it in that metallic red of the concept car though heart.gif

When I saw that exact same colour / car at Excel MS I didn't rate it.

Reason being that it's a finish that will always look dirty, if it's not dusty looking, it's the finger marks, rain, and road dirt.

Same way a flat black gloss is a better finish than say a VW Diamond black.

Was the road test car the same as the MS one? Have they kept the coal grey headlinning?

Yeah I know.

I still think they should have done it as standard kit, pretty sure it is NOT an option on the UK Cupra. The 140TDi takes the prize for having better styling than the Cupra- doesn't sound right, does it?

I rather like the photoshop red / orange and the straight orange, suits the car.

Im not a fan of that body kit i am often followed or follow a silver one to work each day and too me it makes the leon look odd a bit like a fish. tongue.gif

I do think the cupra should have had something though as the older cupra R was more dramatic than the rest of the range at least supple side skirts and a different front bumper style.

I'd not be able to await that long!!! grin.gif

I take it you've checked your phone is compatible with the Bluetooth kit? We both use Samsung phones which aren't compatible.

I can wait!!! I like being different to everyone else, so if Zenith Grey in May then so be it.

With regards to the bluetooth I did check but it's not on the list - http://www.seat.co.uk/generator/su/uk/altea/site/design/bluetooth/btcompatible.html But I still got it anyway hoping that it will work or just doing a software update will do the trick wink.gif if i need to buy a new phone then so be it. I'd rather do that than get some points and a fine.

Well I'm going to see one next weekend, so may place a deposit if I can get a test drive. I'm VERY keen on one now. I wanted Red, but I think the rear lights will look lost then. I might be going for Zenith Grey. Yellow looks like it's been left out in the sun too long. Pity.
