It's an absolute dead zone.

My understanding is that Seat (see-ot) was a spanish government controlled car company with a factory in germany. bought by VW in the 70-80s.

I'll dig up some more info if you're really interested.

Seat is the "Soiciedad Espa˝ola de Automˇviles Turismo" (spanish society of touring cars) was create in the 60s controlled by the government. In 60-70s only made cars licenses of FIAT. (600, 127, 124, 1430) in 1976 Seat made his first exclusive model, the 1430 sport aka "bocanegra" (black mouth).
In the 80s when the democracy arrive to spain the society was owned by VolksWagen. From then Seat meke independient models with the same plataform of the Vag group (Seat-Audi-Volkswagen-Skoda group).

Excuse my poor english. see the post Seat worldwide by Demio

They are a great succes in Mexico the Seat saler are growing each month, at my point of view, you get more than a VW to an Audi for a better price than a VW
