I ordered my Leon Cupra in August 2007.  I was lucky enough to get her tax free and with military discount at the Price of £15,500.
I only opted for Xenon adaptive headlights with the view to retro fit anything I'd wished I'd ordered after.

Plan was / is to go go as far as I can afford with this, here is how far Ive got so far...

Here she is bog standard not long after I'd collected her in Jan 2008.













Hit the slippery slope

1st time I drove back to the Uk on a long weekend I went to Awesome Gti, without even calling in at home which was en route!

Had Forge DV, APR Stage 1 and shiny Carbonio inlet.





Pulling out of Awesome car park it just felt so eager to go!!!  Why wasn't it like this from the factory!
Had a very fun drive back over snake pass to let mum know I was back in the country  :ashamed:

Managed to catch up with forum go faster geek Mr Hurditch at a local show that weekend before going back to work in Shermany.
It was a show at Elsecar Heritage centre, dragged along my best mate who at the time had a 20vT BAM Polo (Engines now in a lovely MkII Golf)

Not long after I had another long weekend and managed to source somewhere with a Miltek Non Res in stock...
A trek down to TSR performance from Doncastered and I now had the " :evilgrin:" sound.
Stuck it on the rollers too.  Must admit was a lttle disheartened with the figures compared to the REVO results people were
raving about at the time....




Caught BTCC at Brands hatch too and decided I needed this setup in my life;



Few too many pennies for me though  :sad1:

Little mods saw me upto the summer;

Cupspoiler...



Experimenting with Boost gauge mount...




Quick spray of the badge till I got some 3M Carbon Vinyl...




Rear wiper delete... (doesn't make me go any faster, does it.)



Black badge and gimp mask on ready for the motorway to Uk for Pre deployment leave...



Some show plates and super sticky adhesive Velcro...



Some destruction of centre console to fit a Sony Ipod & Usb H-unit...





Fitted some PIAA LED sidelights that are meant to stop errors caused by low power consumption

OEM Vs PIAA White LED, happy with these as I love the subtle mini mods.
