Awesome write up and great work as always!

Some workshops need to be named and shamed and then burnt to the ground so they cannot rip off unknowing people.

If I were to ever own a performance dub again in the future, J2 will definitely be the place taking care of it.

Great read. You'll probably find the owner has no mechanical know how, like me. because the exterior and interior looks fantastic! So he was just being ripped off by other people possibly.

But looks like you have a real beaut of a cupra, once all sorted i'll take off your hands :P been hunting for another white LC.

Wow the Cupra looks so clean! Real pity about the mechanical issues and "lost" parts.

I have the same issue with my current software, already spoke to Jared yesterday to get it tuned by you next week.

Hey Dewald, yeah it's a real pity, but we're working on getting it back in shape! Perfect, yes, Jared mentioned it, we'll get it tuned correctly :type:
