Hey aadix, I highly doubt that Skoda has officially launched the Fabia. Maybe what's going on is that the dealers' have news that the Fabia will be launched in a month or 2, so the smart guy that he is, begins to spread the word out and takes in pre-orders. This would be like an amount of money paid (unofficially) in order to have priority once the car is launched. I guess they like the novelty of being the first with a new car in the city.

This way the dealer makes some money off the interest and gets a buyer hooked and willing to wait for those 2 months.

If it's coming that late, I can't wait that long. I need a new car at least by June/July.

go for the Hyundai, but not the Viva, the normal saloon. It really is one good car backed by an excellent sales/serivice network.

Yes sir,

I know this is India and we have a 150HP RS now!!, so I donít see being completely impossible to have a 130HP(at least a 110HP ) fabia soon.

Satyam.
