I believe you got the unexpected answer below! Selling a petrol these days can be tough, and even more so when you have the backing of a brand like Skoda.

May i ask which dealer quoted you that price? A friend of mine is trying to get a good price for the TSi, and if you could help me with the name of the dealer, it will make it easier for him to strike a good bargain.

Thanks a lot prithwi for the information.

Incidently, a very good friend of mine who is a lawyer in delhi, has won a case against Skoda India for a client of his and got a very good compensation from Skoda India.

"Luxury car maker Skoda India Pvt Ltd, has been ordered by Delhi State Consumer Commission to pay one of its car buyers Rs 20.17 lakh, including Rs 2.5 lakh in compensation, for selling him a defective car.

The state consumer commission relying on the service history records and receipts of expenditure submitted by the buyer, observed that the car purchased in April 2005 had to be taken to the service station 33 times for repairing defects, many of which were manufacturing ones, and it cost Rs 1.65 lakh to the customer."


This verdict came in December 2012. Sorry for going off topic.

But i think with the heads rolling in Skoda India, the new incharge is going to improve the A.S.S. for Skoda India.

Im very much looking forward to the Octavia 1.8 TSI 2013. It should be a good VFM over VW/Audi with simliar engines.

Ouch.. Good win tho.. about time heads start rolling at the Skoda dealership atleast. Sadly the Main Skoda Auto has little control on the ASS or the dealers. They are like DoT, issuing orders after orders to Telecom companies, but none are implemented. End of the day, us consumers suffer.

Today, went to Giriraj with a friend to check out the deals on Laura. My friend wants to buy an AT LAURA (not particular about fuel type). We were told NO DISCOUNT on petrol AT and a waiting period of 45 days. On 2012 assembled diesel AT (with new features), we were offered max discount of INR 1.15 lacs.

I was astounded with these quotes, given the state of automotive demand and the fact that Laura is to be phased out soon.

Wondering since when have Lauras started selling this much.

Any thoughts / info on current available discounts please. My friend is looking to book the car over next 5-6 days.

The TSI AT is built to order hence no stock is available, hence no discount. The same engine / transmission goes in the Superb so it is a case of selective mix and match

Thats one aspect of it , the fact of the matter is that there are very tight rules laid down by Skoda as well for their Service centers, i have spent a sufficient amount of time with one of the ASS during the last 2 months , and enough times work has got postponed / delayed not because the dealer was not willing but because Skoda was either not responding or something was not available - to the point that i would have 2-3 people standing around my car with tools in their hands but they were "waiting" for an approval from the company to start the work

Hi Prithwi. I drive a TSI and a friend now wants to buy a Superb. I called Ganganand with your reference for the same. He's promised to come back after checking for stock. Thought will thank you for putting up reference on the forum.

Driven!!!! TSI DSG officially delivered to a colleague.
Confirmed fratures-
Skoda MFD from the L&K, not the ambiente display.
Same audio system as the VRS with n the addition of Bluetooth
Bluetooth streaming of audio
MF steering wheel with voice control
16inch wheels from VRS
7AT makes the car a hoot to drive... its feels insanely fast, and stable thanks to the 205 tires. It feels really faster than the vrs due to the extra cog in the 7AT.
Black floor lining and mats as in the VRS. Rest everything is beige.
No auto folding orvms same as the ambiente

Ex showroom price with all discounts of 13.48, which is very attractive for the package on offer.
