    As sure I read somewhere that a Cupra front spoiler / splitter is not wide enough for a V70 / R bumper and might need 2 of these cut and shut?
    Yes, I fitted the splitter that your link goes to.

    You do not need to cut and shut two splitters to make them fit. My car only has one fitted and if your careful in it's placement, it will look ok.
    I've had no negative comments about mine and who said a splitter had to go all the way to the sides anyway!?
    I know I'm biased but I think mine looks great, subtle but still great! It's not in your face, did not require painting and blends in with the rest the car perfectly.

    Gave my R a quick winter lick a few weeks ago and tried out the New Carplan Super gloss sealer. First impressions are very good. Simple to apply with dramatic results!







    Says it seals for up to 12 months! So we'll see how it goes. Good job I did as shortly after that I went up to my sisters after Xmas and had a play in the snow....

    Comes with the 6 plastic clips already fitted!







    Also fitted some chassis bungs, some were missing...

    Fuel pipe chassis rail part#



    Found my Intercooler to OTE hose was starting to degrade...



    New hose...


    Now fitted.

    New wheel bolts to replace all the old ones. These are modified and have individual tapered collars, so when you torque them up they dont damage the alloy and scratch the paint....





    New rear wiper blade...



    Brand new front grille as the old one was getting very tatty and I no longer liked the painted surround after my front end respray, so I went back to stock...





    Bumper removal..

    Post Links to other threads for my car...

    I get asked a lot of time about stuff on my car and some of which i've mentioned in other threads before this one. So, in an effort to link the missing info, like my custom exhaust thread or the Alarm service module thread, then I'm going to attach them all here. Not all, just some of the useful or more interesting ones that might be of some help to others
    (I apologise for any missing photos in advance.)

    Also I’ve got a couple of sets of those anti brake vibration plates I did wonder what they were for lol

    Tailgate strut refresh

    So my oem fit struts were getting tired and they weren't lifting the tailgate the last 6" without me pushing up. So I decided to replace them.
    I bought Stabilus struts and as you can see they're quite chunky:



    To access you'll need to fold down the rear seats, remove the load cover, remove the first floor panel, unbolt the side window panels and pull out for access (don't need to fully remove), remove the corner panels, middle boot light section, speaker panels and the roof edge panels:



    Then support the tailgate with a suitable adjustable extension pole (10 from most motor factors):



    Once you've gained access to the struts you'll see this:

    LEFT SIDE


    RIGHT SIDE


    Use long nose pliers and a small flat head screw driver to unclip the tiny clips that hold the sockets onto the ball. Take great care not to break or loose these clips as you don't get new ones supplied with the new struts.

    Once the first clips are removed it will look like this:





    Remove the second ball joint clip and remove the struts. They simply pull down if a little stuck!

    (Fitting is the same but in reverse)

    Then reassemble the boot space, taking care not to break/loose and trim clips.
