New proud owner of a Greyser Silver V1 Cupra Born (Tech L Pack). Had it around 2 weeks now. Great to see so many subjects on here already surrounding the born.

Hope to interact with you all at some point.

Did you buy it locally (Cupra/Seat Sunderland), or did you go further afield for it? I'm in North Shields, but travelled to Twickenham and Woking for our 2 x V2 E-Boosts that were in stock.

I'm not too far from you (North Shields) - maybe i'll see you i passing at some point, haven't seen another Born locally yet, apart from dealership stock/demos at Sunderland.

Hi mate, got mine from twickenham also. Treck and a half. Sunderland weren’t much help, couldn’t give me lead times.

I live in wallsend.

That's 3 of us here that went to Twickenham then - you, me and Daveion. Sunderland has to be the most low rent new car show room in the UK that i've come across, yet all of the other Pulman dealerships look so tidy.

If you need any OBD11 tweaks (e.g. getting rid of that Lane Assist coming on by default) then let me know.

Thanks mate i appreciate that. Yeah sunderland just could not give me any confidence for a sale. Shocking really.

Weirdly i don’t mind lane assist 😂 what other tweeks can be mate with the OBD?

If you want an extra lit up button on your steering wheel, I could activate Travel assist (although it is useless without a capacitative steering wheel), high beam assist memory, air care memory, AC memory (all remember their last settings on next ignition cycle, and a few other things I can't remember.
