    Cupra lip / Splitter

    Hi all,

    I phoned my local Seat dealer today and they want £50 for the splitter.

    He knew what the item was before I even finished reading the part number, demand must be high.

    Where can I get one cheaper, I was lead to think that it was about £35.

    Cheers

    I got mine from here SEAT LEON CUPRA R MK1 FRONT BUMPER SPOILER SPLITTER NEW GENUINE | eBay

    They're my local Seat dealer so didn't pay the £8 postage.

    They are in demand tho and prices have risen, £50 sounds a bit expensive tho if my dealer can do it for £42.

    I just got the impression they were cashing in on the demand, understandable but annoying.

    In which case, I may as well just get the one I got quoted for.

    Also tempted by the eBay one though as I don't need to find time to go to the dealer.

    I've stuck a cupra splitter on my Se bumper Jeff, easier and cheaper than an s-line bumper conversion. Admittedly I would've liked the s-line bumper but I couldn't justify the cost including respray. I sprayed the splitter to match body colour though, which I like. Although now the paint has flaked (1st point of impact for all road debris) and I think the plastic material isn't suited to OEM paint, even with primer & lacquer...

    Can't access photobucket at work to provide a pic unfortunately...

    i bought one from my local Seat dealer for £43 a couple of months ago, when i went to fit it was scuffed to buggery, took it back but the one they replaced it with looked like it had been at the bottom of the stack coz it was deformed out of shape, got my money back in the end, quality control was crap

    you just need to trim the two lugs off in the middle and then line it up. Macdoon did a good write up on fitting a couple of weeks ago

    How is everyone getting on with fitting these? Got mine on Saturday but finding it a pain to get fitted. I've trimmed the the centre tabs down, but looks like I've got quite a bit to trim down. I've marked it down to about 12mm in height from the base of the lip not sure if that is too much or whether I cut it straight or at an angle etc.

    I've also heard the tabs going around should be trimmed by about 1mm to allow it to sit flush under the bumper.

    Any help/pictures would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Az.

    Cupra lip / Splitter

    Picked mine up on Thursday, about £43 if I remember correctly.

    Going to pick up the screws this evening.

    Hoping to fit at the weekend with a mate, so we will see how it goes.

    Going to try and steer clear of the guides for this one, I'll just make it fit as best as possible.

    Looking at it, it looks fairly straight forward.

    After trimming the pylon bits at the front, it took me about 3 minutes to fit the splitter to mine. It's not a big deal like some make it out to be.

    Dead easy to fit.

    I think I cut the central pillars down to about 25mm to the front and 15mm to the rear. On all the other tabs I trimmed them down, cutting off the actual "locking" part of the tab to allow it to sit flat. Drilled holes in the part of the tab left after trimming then fixed to the bumper. The central pillars I used longer screws and a couple of washers and placed the screw in the groove of the pillar to the rear, out of sight. I started fixing from the tabs on either side of the central pillars then when I was getting close to the end pulled the splitter outwards to follow the bumper as best I could as the splitter is narrower than the bumper.
