    looks interesting..cheaper than the Octavia vRS by 500 quid and better standard equipment...you get dual zone climate and cruise control as standard on the Leon..
    same performance virtually as all the same engined cars A3/vRS/golf gti

    its an odd looking car but it seems good value..the 18's look better than the standard 17's

    Technically a superb car, and the specs of it are good too for the money. However the new leon looks foul.

    I need to see one up close I think

    I was all ready to swap my existing vRS for the new one..and this just puts a bit of doubt in my mind...I will lose some boot space, but byt he time I put 18's and the ipod kit on the options list its still cheaper than a standard a VRS on 17's with no dual zone climate....its a tough choice as I really love my current Octavia...I suppose only driving will tell me the difference

    When I find five minutes I'll be off to the dealer to pick up some details of the FR as I'm looking to replace my Ibiza later in the year.

    Also under thought though is a used 330d in the same sort of budget (up to £20k). Hmmm...

    I know...is it going to be still in warranty at that age though and what are parts/servicing costs like

    the problem with buying a 'prestige' brand is that you take on 'prestige' costs as well

    With you jogging my memory - I'm old enough to remember some Seat's with system porsche stickers now.
