Saw a black Fabia on Sunday morning at about 6:30 near Halli Tindi on Bull temple road. It had some yellow stickers to cover the front and the back logo and the name. I just loved the car though! Guys in and around hanumanth nagar, please post pics if you manage to click any.

Folks, Do we have any "wisemen" who have already booked Fabia here? Or atleast neighbours of wisemen?

If so, please post some more info about Fabia....

Apologies, if Fabia specks are classified and national security is at stake

hey ravi,

Can you confirm the same news ??? becase when i called up the Skoda Dealer, they denied the same flat.

Hi,
the booking is unofficial. Knowing the launch of Fabia in Sep/Oct, the dealer might be giving unofficial bookings to some loyal skoda customers.

Good video. The conversation was really funny

Seems the Fabia has great road presence. It is really good.

the car looks very good in the video, more than the car the conversation is the best part. Couldn't stop laughing and woke up my parents early in the morning

Would you care to explain how? And what benifit the customer get? Discounts? Anyway, thank you for your comments, I am amused to know that there are such people also

On a lighter note,

There shall be any backgroud check by Interpol to see whether you/ your ancestors have driven/sat in any automobile from other manufacturers. If so, you are not eligible

Once you are selected throught the stringent process, you'll have to sign a confidentiality contract that thou shall not reveal any specs of Fabia to anyone on earth- you wouldn't even open the hood. Breach could lead to death penalty

PS; There will be a loyalty bonus, that must paid by all customers to Skoda

After driving your Fabia enough, you also get a chance to have a look at Skoda service costs. You can thereby increase your loyalty to Skoda.

Hey Dudue,
It is my neighbour who booked the Fabia and not me. He owns two skodas (Octavia and Laura) and liked them both very well. He is not a technical person. He always does long drives on business purposes and he found them to be excellent. He is in need of another car, and he booked Fabia. I do not know the terms and conditions of the booking. Officially the Fabia bookings may not have started, but somehow he said he booked to Fabias through the dealer, one for him and one for his friend. I have enough confidence that he booked truly. He has been out of town for the last two weeks and the next time when I found him, I will try to get the details.
