Cupra's Garage

Well, after starting the 'thinking about buying a Commander' thread and getting information on here... I went ahead and bought one on Tuesday!

And finally, I was able to snap a couple of pictures of it... in situ, at home.






It's been a blast so far, I have no complaints at all... apart from gas mileage... seems to be at about 11 mpg... on my first 1/2 tank of gas, and I haven't been WOTing it everywhere either!

This is my first SUV and my first ever V8. I love the sound it makes when getting on it, but also just the instant tiger like purr when just driving normally...

The only thing I can find wrong with it is the remote for the DVD player doesn't seem to work, even after changing the batteries! I guess that is a really small complaint!

The nav works well... I love how luxurious it feels in there!

I bought my first mod last night... a 13" rubber antenna to replace the 31" long aluminum one that's on there...

I may be tempted by LED tail lights in the not too distant future too...

Very impressive, did it come with the window vents or did you add them?

It is all exactly how I bought it... the vents were on there when I bought it.

The only mod so far (which is in the mail) is the black rubber shorty antenna to replace that massive aluminum one...

Looks like a nice one CUPRA.
You mentioned it was a bit close to the top of the garage???
Might consider taking the cross bars off till you need em for a trip. Should get ya a bit more breathing space up there.

Yeah I started to look at that last night, but I chose to do it in the dark and couldn't see too well... do they simply just screw off, or do you unscrew them and then have to slide them out? I guess I could read the manual huh?

Surely removing them is good for 0.5mpg gain? !!!!

Yes, they just screw off and then lift straight up. You will see a little hook that holds them on as you lift them.
