Quoting

"I am going to buy one of the following, an Astra GSI Turbo, or a Leon Cupra R, the performance is pretty similar, so any reasons why i should have one more than the other? which is easier to tune etc?

I love the look of the astra gsi in arden blue, but then equally love the cupra r in black "

New Leon coming out in September, this could affect residuals on current cupra r's.

astra is a better looking car but cupra R is much more tuneable and with VAG engines, more or less bulletproof if looked after well enough.
