Re: Door pockets

If you look on Aliexpress, you might find someone selling rubber inserts for the base of the pockets, I got some for my Polo GTI back in 2019. Maybe you could find someone selling some thin sticky back neoprene or flock/furry black sheeting and trim in for the pocket insides with a Stanley Knife?

Re: Due to arrive tomorrow

It’s a lease car, so I don’t get the V5. When I’ve bought VW’s in the past, they list the extras on the inside page of the service book. You can then decode this on the internet. There should be a build sticker under the boot carpet somewhere, with lots of 3 digit alphanumeric codes. Google those c...

Re: Picked her up today! Pics inside

When you put anE-boost into Cupra mode, you get access to the full throttle response (other modes have dulled throttle response to various degrees: Cupra>Performance>Comfort>Range). You also get up to 30s continuous access to 231ps - seeing as the car would top out at 99mph from a standstill in abo...

Re: Due to arrive tomorrow

Standard V2 spec is 19" wheels (best looking of the bunch IMO), a wireless phone charger (that works poorly), dual zone climate, seat/steering wheel heating over and above a V1 spec (were you trialling in a V1?). I think the wireless charger is part of the tech(m) pack. Certainly, our V2 doesn...

Re: Due to arrive tomorrow

Does it have any "packs" added to spec? Most stock cars have an L-Tech pack which adds full keyless, lit door handles, auto parking. Standard V2 spec is 19" wheels (best looking of the bunch IMO), a wireless phone charger (that works poorly), dual zone climate, seat/steering wheel hea...

Re: Full range

I would be interested to know if the recirc is 100% or if there is a bleed of outside air like building AC systems to achieve a statutory air change rate. It'll be a partial ingress to maintain a decent level of O2 with minimal CO2 build up, given there's probably only about 8m3 of air in the car. ...
