Default Totally Obsessed - The Skoda Octavia vRS!

Hey guys,
After searching around for a Skoda RS, finally found one and picked it up a few about 2months ago. It had done about 30k kms then and was really a very very neat one. The white carpets and the black & white seats everything were really clean and the car seemed totally unabused. The previous owner and stopped using the car and it had been lying at his garage for maybe 3-4months so anyway as soon as i bought the car did a service and changed to Mobil1.

Recently got a ECU Remap done, a Carbonio Intake and also a nice loud Turbo XS BOV. Just hearing the whistle can keep u driving on and on and on... Driving it is just an experience and u never ever get bored of it. You just seem to forget the low mileage or the expensive parts or anything else while ur at the wheel and and u just want to keep driving and driving.. And ive totally stopped driving my Mitsubishi Cedia after getting this This just feels so much more safer and assuring while ur doin high speeds and it gives u more confidence to keep going!! And suddenly u start loving those red lights at the signals

And thanks to all those guys who helped me make up my mind between the Skoda RS and the Honda Accord!

i remember him stating that the current bhp is around 225 - so ideally it is Phase II remap(??). That would be around 2.14L (approx). not including the breakup.

I am sure the cost has changed now (??)

All the performance mods on the car totally cost about 1.4l as some of the parts i got from a friend who was selling his 1.8TPi. Dont exactly know what bhp its running but should be around 220 hopefully. Haven't dynoed it yet.

@Jasher
This car was not sale on the website

BTW, is it possible to get xenons in the foglamps as well?? What type of bulbs are they??

BOV was Rs10k from Viper Performance

I dont think a dyno chart will be possible untill someone sets up a dyno in s.india
