Has anybody actually seen any SEAT's in North America?
Just wondering.
Would be cool to know if someone in the US or Canada actually drives a SEAT.

Uhh, what's a SEAT:confused: I've never heard of them before.

I supposed this question would come sooner or later.
The name is very funny because most people think when i mention SEAT i'm talking about seats but i haven't chosen the name.

SEAT is a spanish car manufacturer owned by Volkswagen.

The official website is www.seat.com

I know that they build small cars compared to what americans are used to but thay are very good quality and cheap.

I myself drive one and can tell that in over 3 years i have had no problems whatsoever.

With it's Ibiza Model thay have won the World Rally Championship in the 2 litre category 3 years in a row.

On my website you can check the photo gallery where i have some pictures of the Seat cars.

I knew what they are. :D I saw them in the crappy rally coverage we get in America (one came in third at the Kenya rally, IIRC), and one got a feature in Sport Compact Car a few months ago... I'll dig it up later. :D Very slick little cars.

there will be SEATS in the US as they are sold in Mexico leon, cupra and maybe the leon cupra R.

The SEAT leon is basically a golf chassis that has had work done to improve the handling oh and a 1.8 20VT engine

An ibiza cupra sport is a mk4 Polo with the front nose chassis off a mk2 golf and the engine is from a mk3 golf gti

The ibiza Cupra R is basically the same with slight chassis modifications and bodywork and the same engine as the Leon R but due to less weight means its a pocket rocket

If u eva need any info or want to chat about SEAT's get ur self to ( not today though as the site is being updated, oh and we have members from over 40 countrys

i live in the UK, seat have built a very good reputation over recent years, since they were taken over by VW. I drive a Seat ibiza at the moment, just over 3yr old. Im looking to buy my own first car, rather than share my parent's car. im looking to get a Seat Leon, 1.6 litre, coz i like them a lot

I lived in Mexico City last year(went there for college), man the Leon is sooo fast, I saw a couple at the street races they have overthere and saw a couple Leon Cupra R at actual 1/4 mile dragstrips, those things haul ass.
I wish I could import one overhere, I have some pics of them around my pc somewhere, i'll post them when i find them.
