Seat Leon 1.8 20vt Cupra - lpg!

#1 Post by wackyracer1 » Sun Oct 16, 2011 11:10 pm

Due to a couple of time wasters the price has now been reduced to £1650ono
This car has a dual fuel LPG conversion... fuel at 75p per
Right first the specs... This car has lots of rarer options!
1.8 20valve turbo - 180bhp
6 speed gearbox
uprated 17in alloys with 215 45 17 tyres
Full digital climate control (AC)
Electric leather seats (both driver and passenger!)
Electric heated and folding mirrors.
Auto windscreen wipers!
Auto dim dip rear view mirror!
Height and forward/away adjustable steering wheel
Electric windows front and rear
stereo with 6 cd changer.
Uprated headlight bults ( ultra brights)
Front fog lights
Heavy duty towbar with full electrics for trailer or caravan
OMVL DREAM multipoint sequential LPG system - professionally fitted.
Uprated shocks and springs alround, although only lower 10mm so not hardcore road scraper which wears out the suspension and attracts higher ins premiums

Service history - loads!
Being a keen car diyer I have kept reciepts for everything i have done myself and also that has been done at garages.
The car was MOT'd on August 31st and the tax runs till end of Oct.
The car also had a FULL service with the mot and a LPG service during the summer.
All the ignition coils have been changed within the last few years.
Other recent parts etc incl a new O2 sensor and new vapouriser for the lpg. It also has new rear bushes on the rear suspension.
The cam belt was changed at approx 90k. Please note that despite many manuals stating 120k Seat revised this to every 60k. So next due date will be 150k
New lock seat and brand new remote key!
New battery back in May

Inside the condition is very good. the leather is in excellent condition with no rips, tears or excessive wear. I treat the leather every 6 months with a high quality leather cleaner and protector.
The roof lining is good with no stains etc as are the carpets. The genuine seat car mats are all very good with the drivers mat showing expected wear.
There are two small patches say 1inch square on the dashboard (one by right pillar and one above centre console) that look like something was super glued there at some point. I havent tried to remove this as would proberly do more damage that good!
Outside the wheels are showing some signs of kerbing etc, but are not buckled etc, you could get them refinished but at in excess of £80 - £100 each i decided the money was better spent on keeping the car well serviced.
The paint work is wear she gets let down. NO rust, dents etc, but she has had two minor scrapes one to the from passenger side panel and one ont he driver side rear door. THESE HAVE BEEN PROFESSIONALLY REPAIRED AND RESPRAYED THOUGH MY INSURANCE,but sadly Seat yellow fades quite badly and so the new paint is pretty obvious against the old paint.
I decided against a full respray as the cost was pretty high and i again decided to spend the money on the general upkeep of the car. No good having shiny paintwork if you are broken down ont he motorway due to lack of servicing.
i have tried to show this in the pics. To be honest though when you are driving a 180bhp car with full history, new mot, recent service for petrol and lpg side and doing it for 75p per litre... do you really care?!
NOTE - car has just been professionally valeted and had a full machine clean and buff of the paint work as well as a coat of cannuba wax ( 95% stuf not the cheap stuff!)

Any other questions or photos needed just ask.

Best to Email me as i work funny hours!
