Of so many of us here - none has brought the style plus diesel variant home?!?!?

Looks like I will have to take the leap of faith!!
Have you taken the leap of faith? :P
I've heard that the ride isn't that sorted, but how bad is it compared to a Multi Link setup?

Well almost.

By the time I took the leap the car at the dealership was sold. Booked one and should be available by the weekend. Will pick it up next week. Anyone in Pune who can help with the PDI?

Though in the meantime the confidence on buying a Skoda again has shaken up quiet a bit. My Laura's air conditioning has gone for a toss again and the dealership has detected a faulty compressor. This is the second time this has gone kaput in past six years. Last time it was changed under goodwill warranty and this time the dealership has given a repair estimate of 1.25 lacs!!

The same dealership had given the cars valuation at 3.5 lacs (before the compressor developed a problem). I do not understand how does a car's compressor goes bad so easily. Of all the cars we've owned in the past 30 odd years - this is the only one which has had problems with the compressor.

This time after keeping the car with them for over 12 days - I sent it to a local repair guy who identified the problem with an electronic switch which comes with the compressor. Hopefully will get the price estimate of the same today. According to him all should be sorted under 20k. Fingers crossed!!

Is it possible to install navigation for 1.8 Tsi style plus. I know I can connect through android, but what about people who have iPhone.

Samyak, just check briskoda which is full of adaptations for the Octavia III. :-)

They should all work for our cars.

It's Skoda - there is going to be something new every year!

From what I've read - there is an exciting vRS in the making, the Facelift of course, and even a black edition on the anvil which sounds like a tamed down vRS.
