    Could be following you on this deal @Bristle Hound , can't make the numbers work on a 4 year old S4 Avant when looking at what it would be worth after another 3 years, how much it costs me over 3 years, ploughing in a 6k deposit, and then having the struggle to sell it on and have any equity over and above the 6k. 259 for a 5 door or 279 for an estate on the Leon Cupra deal looks very good to me. It's 2 years running a brand new car, keeps my savings pot intact for emergencies and considering I commute once a week with work Mon-Thurs (to the airport and back!) it seems more sensible to go the biggest bang for your buck option - and I think this is it. Long wait on them though - quoting April currently...!!!!

    The red looks nice in these photos, as does the blue that you're getting:

    She's always driven manual GB cars & in her words 'feels more in control' with a manual
    Can't really argue with her as she passed a higher standard of driving test than me when we were both working in the same job, now retired from

    As my current cars PCP deal finishes the end of May next year, I've re-ordered my Cupra
    Sticking with mystery blue
    I suppose this way I'm guaranteed the digital dash & illuminated door sills too

    I've been quoted April/May delivery which will fit perfectly in for me TBH

    Got the same deal as I did for my August order too, so well pleased

    @Bristle Hound, hey, Col, if Mrs Hound has her own car, why should her preferences dictate your choice of transmission on your car? :)

    @jdp1962 - Because we both drive each others cars regularly Jeff
    & a small matter of love ! :D

    As much as I like the s-tronic GB on my S4, I do find it lacking when 'making progress' TBH
    But that could be my driving style & how I was taught my advanced driving to be fair

    Been speaking to the supplying dealer this morning, IMG Warrington
    Collection on Wednesday 14th March 2018 ! :thumbs up:
    I've asked that the dealer doesn't prep the vehicle beyond removing all the transport film, which I was pleasantly surprised they agreed to as the Cupra is a PCH car

    So hopefully I will be collecting a filthy new car [​IMG]

    I'll post some pic's on collection

    @SPIKE_S1 - SWMBO aka the dream squasher said no to the M4. I live to fight another day lol
    Should be well dirty as I have a 200 mile journey home after collection. Bonus of that is it should be run in by the time I get home ;) :D
    Will post some dirty pic's on collection :yes::superman: lol
    @slinemfc - Cheers :thumbs up:
    Just out of interest my supplying Dealer is still doing the same car but now £269/month for 24 months

    Wow, that is cheap! Talking about insurance, do you have any recommendations for warranty? The S1 is coming up to three years old and considering a warranty until we look to change it some time within the next 12 months.

    @SPIKE_S1 - I was surprised myself too
    The policy also has a 'no upper claim limit' & a '£250 excess contribution' too

    I haven't had any experience of any 3rd party / aftermarket warranties TBH
    Have you had a quote from Audi yet ?

    Yea, my local is chasing me hard at a price of £420. I haven’t haggled yet, so hope to knock it down to £350 if possible! It seems reasonable, but I’m not sure if I should shop around. You can even pay it off at 0% apr! That’s a first for Audi.

    After a 250 mile round trip & fours hours driving, I collected the Cupra from IMG Warrington yesterday

    I asked the Dealer to the leave the car 'as is' other than to remove all the transport film, which is part of the PDI, which they did
    My car was filthy ! It was covered in a layer of muck with adhesive all over the place. Just like I like it :D
    It had 5 miles on the clock at collection
    My car came with Continental ContiSport tyres
    All were dated week 41 of 17

    There was a guy picking up a Ibiza & he couldn't believe how I collected a brand new car lol

    [​IMG]

    After a 125 mile run, my first impressions
    £55 worth of V-Power from 2 sticks showing on the fuel gauge

    I already knew the Cupra had a mahoosive spec but seeing it in the 'flesh' blew me away
    Little things like oil temp coolant temp are already configured
    The interior is quite a nice place to be. Its not up to Audi standards, but it isn't an Audi ! lol

    Gearbox is nice & loose & the engine pulls strongly. It felt quick enough

    Lots of connect ability. 2 SD card slots, 2 USB's, 1 aux in & 2 USB charging only ports

    HHA is standard as it should be on all Audi's IMHO

    Cupra specific interior mats are a nice touch

    Haven't even started to figure out the sat nav yet lol

    The spec on the Cupra, in particular, makes other manufacturers standard spec cars look a bit silly TBH
    My car is bog standard & the only extra was the metallic paint which ws included in the PCH deal

    My car didn't come with the digi dash (Seats's virtual cockpit) as it was built 8 weeks early in December 2017. This was standard on all 2018 cars.
    But did come with the illuminated door sills which weren't supposed to be standard until the 2018 cars!

    I hadn't planned on the doing the 'new car detail' yet, but as today turned out I started today & got about 2/3 done
    There was a little marring on the bonnet which was easy enough to correct TBH
    A little teaser -

    [​IMG]

    More pic's & thought to come ...

    Nice looking alloys those! As you've found with your Cupra, Seat and VW do provide a very nice spec as standard for the price of these cars. Loving my R Estate. Yes it's not quite Audi build but it's nowhere near the price of an equivalent Audi.

    From the SEAT one on the left to an Audi one on the right, which has the same knurled knob (oh 'er [​IMG]) as the stereo volume control on the SEAT

    [​IMG]

    Its the little things don't cha know [​IMG]
