240bhp 2.0T and 345mm front discs....... shame about the styling tho eh!

I guess its only natural tho, as the majority of manufacturers seem to
be taming down the hot models lately, presumably the fend off hijacks
etc. (new R32 and S3 being prime examples!).

Remain unconvinced about the looks.... i sat in the new 200bhp FR at
the dealers yesterday and left very underwhelmed..... id happily pay
another couple of ???? to get the GTI.

Gotta wonder what a remap will bring too..... you'd expect it to be
running a slightly modified engine to that of the current 200bhp
2.0T...... diff turbo perhaps.

Love it[H] I think it looks great, even in yellow, but I have got a thing for yellow cars. Love the centre mounted rev counter too, just like a proper little racing car[:D] Would definately have one!

Loving the front bumper, rev counter positioning and most of all.....the seats! Nice. Not much else appeals to me though. Doesn't really make the impact the previous facelift Cupra did when that was relaunched.

Well as you have probably seen from my other thread on the Leon, absolutely love it, can't fault it.

240bhp with a remap is exactly what I was thinking, probably been remapped from the original 200bhp anyway. But, if it hasn't been, then should be seeing 280bhp pretty easy. Hell of a lot of power in a small car!

Hmmmm not sure about that, the front looks quite mean, the back quite awful. The dash well even worse [:(]

The FR in Grahams thread looks quite nice.

Think I'm still preferring the previous FR and cupra. Was looking at a Tdi FR in platinum in traffic and it still looks quite fresh and modern.

I was waiting in anticipation to see what they came up with, and i TOTALLY love it......i think it looks awesome!!!!!

I like it even more as i hear that DSG with flappy paddles is an option!!![H]

I am not keen however, on the rear lights....Too RED! i think they should have gone for a similar cluster to the Ibiza FR/Cupra with the grey background and afterburner style circular lenses!
