Mtailors Dynamic Grey Leon Cupra 280


Registered User
So I’ve owned my 280 for over 2 years now. So I thought it would be a good time to do a write up on my build. This is actually my first post on this forum – even though I have been on here since 2005. I’ve owned a few Audi’s, VWs over the years including B6 & B7 Audi A4, C7 A6.

I picked up the car in August 2018 from a main dealer in Cardiff.
Its a Leon Cupra in Dynamic Grey, a late 2015 car. Really pleased with the car. Spec below:

I soon got the itch to modify so I bought a Racingline R600 induction kit, silicon hose, elbow and muffler delete.

It sat in a box till May 19 before I finally fit it.


Old air box removed

Can see inlet to turbo.


Pipe work attached. Muffler delete placed. That was hard.

Air box fitted with hose.

Got to say you can actually hear the turbo spool up. And I believe you can here the dump valve too.

Still kinda quiet - but a small improvement to induction. Also fitted the Revo Torque mount (dogbone mount). This was singularly the best bang for buck mod made.

Quite simple to install as well.

I think it’s time for a remap.

Question is : which one??

So I looked at all the options an I was convinced to go Racingline OEM+

So I made a trip to VAG Manchester and had the map put on.

I was expecting a slight difference. Oh I was in for a shock. It’s night and day the difference.



Quick pic from their prem.

Recently I had a full service, DSG and diff service done just as lockdown kicked in.
Also I had my braided hoses fitted too.
Also fitted
Eibach ProKit
Front Strutbrace
Superpro Alloy arms
RS3 brake ducts attaches to arms
Front and rear brake pads - DS2500
RBF600 fluid flush



I’ve just obtained some Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.3 wheels 18” with Yokohama Advan tyres

These need to go on soon, before my track day at Brands Hatch. Got my crash helmet too. Sparco X1.

If I am going to do track days regularly - then a BBK

So I have obtained some Audi RS3/TTRS 4 pot Brembo Caliper. Just sent them off to get them refurbished. The expensive part is the discs. They come in at a whopping £745... Not going to be ready for Brands Hatch.
