Soo the time has come to sell the bora mainly due to the fact I dont benefit from owning a diesel and I wanted something different and fun without having to spend much

I wanted to stay vag so after lots of research and insurance quotes I found that a seat Leon cupra r was the 1 to go for

After searching ebay , autotrader ect for a couple of weeks one in Sheffield popped up, the following day I went to view it

And ended up taking it home Wink

225bhp leon cupra r
2004
2 owners from new
113k miles
Tax and test till end of may
Part service history

Bad bits:
2x badly worn tyres (tracking)
Chip in windscreen
Paint work not the best
Wheels and brakes need refurbishment (lacquer peel)

So taking into consideration the bits needed to be done and the chance it could fail an mot and needed taxing soon

I walked away £2550 lighter

Heres the car as it was on the add

Chip in windscreen
Drivers Wishbone bush borderline
Exhaust hanger snapped but still supported
