What about resale of existing cars & the service costs? A guy looking for a Logan or slightly above will never accept their service/spare costs.

Thanks for that info both GTO and aaggoswami. Btw, what numbers is Octavia doing per month/ quarter? Any information on this?

it was stopped in december last year.abhinav bought it in i think mid of this year.it was a left over piece with them.
i've contacted them all.chd,delhi,ludhiana,jaipur,lkh...all of them.
even in mumbai,pune,chennai,cbe,hydrabad,bhopal,ahmdabad..
called all of them up.didn't even get one.
although the a delhi dealer has a rider 1.8 tpi left.it was a slight spec above the ambeinte model now available.

another thing you can get done it get a ambiente 1.8tpi.and mod it up.spend some 10 lakhs on it and it'll be a mindblowing showstopper with performance to boot.

From what I have been hearing on the grapevine, the Octavia will not be discontinued any time soon. rather they are planning a facelift sometime mid-2009. And continue selling it. Maybe they will come up with a lower capacity engine for it.
In fact even the Laura is apparently being considered for a facelift.

all the best dude.i hope you find one.
try calling up the skoda plant and talk to the sales VP or some senior manager over there.
you might have some influential contact there.
why don't you get the new octavia VRS shipped down here.it should cost you in the region of 25 lakhs here.
else you can wait for the evo 10 to drop in anytime now.probably above 30 lakhs.maybe even 35 lakhs.
