Agree with all you said, Brakes are awesome, A5 is holding well on highways and on highspeed. 205/55 R16 is also playing its role.

Headlights are superb. Have you notice that its Auto Adjustable, When you driving on a decline road, the beam (Headlight) will raise itself and when you driving on an incline road, the beam will lower automatically.

3 Memory settings for seat and rear view mirrors.. PLUS Left Side mirror is adjusted automatically when you engage the Reverse, so that you can see the Left Side Rear Wheel. It adjusts itself where it was, when we OFF the Parking Sensors.

I will soon post the pics..

Cheers,
Mugen_Power.

Now that you've taken in the kudos, perhaps its time for initial driving impressions? Pics can come with those.

Skodas these days look too similar.
My friends keep asking if the car that just passed by is an Octavia or a Laura or a Superb.

Lets see how the Fabia fares.

thats true, i couldnt figure out a superb parked in front of a hotel in mangalore, i mistook it for a octavia.

fabia, we should be able to make out from the rear end atleast.

How can a car enthusiast say that!!!
Except for the side profile, both front and rear have significant differences to highlight Laura from Octavia...
It's so much more refined and next generation stuff...

The underlying design is same, which is true for all german cars, and that is there for a reason. Unlike American and Japanese cars, European cars make very slow and subtle changes to their design, which lets their design age gracefully. i.e. the car doesn;t look old 1 year latter because a new model has been launched with cosmetic changes!
The designs are more thought over and remain consistent over years and also reflects the brand Identity across product line - from low end to high end products. True for BMW, Audi, VW, Merc, etc.

Mugen, i still didnt get how to set the rear view mirrors to bend down while Reverse is engaged. the Manual isnt stating clearly how u set the position of the mirrors...how to make it memorise.
