General Comments:

SEAT LEON CUPRA 4 150 HP TDI (Nr.VSS2221M22R026172)

I own this superb machine since October 20, 2001 (previous car – Seat Leon TDI-110 HP).

I believe it was the first of this model in Portugal.

I was astonished with the performance of this beautiful machine (black is beautiful in this model, and the rear Recaro seats are really comfortable) but it is difficult to understand why a CD player is not included in a €33.330,00 (pvp in Portugal) car. As a mater of fact, if ordered to the dealer, an extra cost of €790,00 (installation not included) must be paid.

Are you faced with this kind of situation in other €pean countries?

Best regards
