It costs GBP 649.99 as mentioned on SKODA TUNING SHOP for Octavia, Octavia II, Fabia, Roomster, Superb, Felicia : Skoda Tuning = superskoda.com

But then that doesnt include shipping.

Hi all,

I too had got my Sprint Booster installed a couple of days back. Got it from a seller in the UK, and did the install myself. I am also using it from past couple of months on my BMW 5 series and am loving it to the core!

Pretty simple installation! Just pull your accelerator pedal to the front, it comes off and on the top of the whole Accelerator pedal box, you can see a wire plug. Once pulling down the Accelerator pedal, there is a space where a screw driver is to be inserted to lift the plug clamps and the plug pops out. Just have to install the oem plug to one end of the sprint Booster, and the other end of the SB goes into the Accelerator PEdal box.

In my BMW 5er, i have a mileage gain of around 1kmpl. Assuming similar results in the Laura too.

The model no. applicable for the Skoda Laura are:
for Manual Tranny : BDD201
for Auto Tranny : BDD201A

Initially it feels jerky, as the boost is quiet high. Over a week of driving, you get adjusted to the pedal as to how much you have to press it for the right power. and then starts your mileage benefits, and a very smooth acceleration!

Sprint Booster is to be put on cars that work on the "Drive By Wire" Accelerator.

Hi,
The RNS 510(Colombus) costs GBP 1399.The maps loaded on the hard drive are for europe.I have spoken to someone in Skoda India & they are trying to get maps from Mapmyindia for the same.You would need a VW or Skoda Map DVD to overwrite the existing maps.So the navigation is not working as of now.
Octavia II - touchscreen DVD navigation - COLUMBUS (RNS 510) - original SKODA AUTO, a.s. : Skoda Tuning = superskoda.com

Cheers.

Not to my taste. It would have been better near the grille.
Above the number plate.

Just maybe

Very nice car you got there, Sandeep. The above lights are not too great, they just look out of place and not so cool.

With the calmness in your posts, I assume you're not the kind to clock 0-60 or 0-100 dashes but purely enjoy the drive . OR have you?

I had driven a Sprint Booster kind of a Thing installed on my friends Civic, It was called Electronic Throttle controller by buddy club. It had the same logic to reduce the lag of the Drive-by-wire accelerator.

無題ドキ???ト

We did some 0-100 dash and a Drag against my Civic also, The car did not clock any improvements here but when driven in traffic it shows the real results, The slightest of touch on the accelerator made the car move with the jerk, infact it took me some time to adjust/adapt to the new settings, It had a knob to control the level of signal boosting and also an On-Off switch to make the car go back to stock completely. Highly impressive stuff.

I am sure your Laura is much more fun to drive after the Sprint Booster install.
