I'm not too familar with Leons, is it the strips by the plate that have been sprayed or the bottoms?

I think the all over colour looks good!

I like the colour coding thing on this but its all personal taste

If it were my car I would remove the strips from the doors and bumpers and have the all smoothed in, then painted.

ah I know that but I was asking your opinion...

I havent seen the leon r side skirts so I dont know if they will just look like a bodge with the standard bumper ie big fat wide ends one side of the wheel against thin ones the other side...

Just some ideas to play wiv at the mo anyhow...

I dont know if I can be arsed seeing as I will get ripped off by insurance *******s for painting bits anyhow:( bunch of ******s:(

I went for a leon because its a larger car and I could fit in it better:D + I liked the fact that I could change the head unit and other stuff like damped grab handles etc.

The only thing I didnt like about it is it looks the same as a 1.4 lol

I found out from roly how much the seat front spoiler is and it was 400 and something quid!:eek: then needed spraying etc that works out at over twice the price of a Leon R bumper:eek:

I may order the side skirts as they are only 50 quid for the pair and see what they look like with the standard bumpers:D

Where you get yours done how much moola?
Its a bit of a back hander on the paint front;) but the strips were about £30 all in from Ben, did the prep work myself cos they come textured so need flatting.

Sunday's cool with me, gimmie a bell cos my memory is ****!:D

mm another thought is....

My insurance seems to rocket if I declare any kind of modification... Could I get away with fitting the kit that comes on the latest cupra and not declare it then just say it came like it? As it in effect would just be the same as a cupra now??

Again just ideas....
