well my dad has a 07 plate leon cupra, while he was on his 2 week hols i borrowed it, and to be honest i didnt think it was a ll that great, there stupidly quick in a straight line and the brakes are over kill but i didnt think the handling was all that great, there are more cons than proes with the car.
saying that tho it all depends in what you want from a car, it is better than an si :|
i havent driven the older shape leon but i think they look better than the newer 1.

It really is a nice car, looks better then the pictures show and the interior is awsome. Took it for a test drive and its real nice to drive, very smooth and quiet and has a good amount of poke, should see 50+MPG on the motorway. Iam going to keep the fes and use it for just 6 months of the year (summer time) to keep the costs of running 2 cars down. I have the space to keep both and after all the time, effort and money ive put into the fes i dont think i could part with it for the sake of £2K :)

lol, the Fes still has pride of place locked up in the garage. It still better for balls out fun, but the Leon is so much better for daily runs.

Not doing the remap yet cause it also needs an uprated clutch before remap. Iam doing the rear tints, and replacing the built in sat-nav with a nice Pioneer 7" touchscreen media centre next.

Thanks mate, it does look factory. You can change the illumination colour on the pioneer headunit, so ive chganged it to red so it matches all the other dash lights.

Just a few more pics i took og it today after a clean and a polish.

Started changing a few things. Fitted a Genuine Seat Leather armrest, changed all the bulbs for Xeon gas charged and chrome indicator bulbs all round to get rid of the orange look, de-badged the boot, Fabia rear wiper arm, smoked side repeaters, changed the original sat-nav for a Pioneer P4100DVD 7" touchscreen headunit and removed the CD changer in the glovebox and got the replacement lining from a dealer. Also fixed a few problems, it had no rear numberplate light units and the hazard light relay was going mental.
