I remember 80s Seat and I like it. The Ibiza and 1st gen Leon were quite niceTrek = vw - bought every other brand and ruined them........... Are you serious, do you remember pre VW Skoda and SEAT, do you feel the world needs more rear engined Estelles and badly built Fiat copies.
But I don't think they have ruined, for some brands was the salvation.
But for example others companies buy a brand and after 1-2 year desapears because it was the competence. I don't like that in cycling or cars etc.
