Am about to press the button on a lease deal for a 1.0 SE 110 manual but am a little concerned now with this spec downgrade. I heard they removed rain sensing wipers from the spec which I could probably live with but manual rear windows? Come on. Also the Dynamic Indicators are no longer, still LED but just repeaters. Skoda website / brochure is useless.
Anyone have an update please?

SE indicators have never been LED as standard, to my knowledge. The lighting has always been a bit deceptively sold, though to be honest I prefer bulb indicators over static LEDs, so long as they last vehicle lifetime as assured.

Anyway even without the heated seats I'm really pleased with it, and that's coming from a GTI spec 200 bhp Jetta. When the turbo kicks in its got a right little roar on it and is an absolute pleasure to drive. Fast as.

I'm never quite sure if it's the turbo or the three-pot engine, but it sounds better than anything I've driven before. Probably a bit of both, our old 4-cylinder turbo 1.2 Yeti had nothing on it.
