That is a great mach9ne out there. I have bene really hooked last couple of weeks since there are my last at work...going back to school soon

Anyway, a great car and you sure have done yourself a lot of good by modding it (within the limits). Great effort and hope you and your customres enjoy the results.

Just Added the MFD3 today (RNS 510 Skoda)... Works excellent.. Now just waiting for the Bose speakers.

Already have the Rockford Fosgate Amp and Sub. Will post the pics once the Sound System is complete.

Also, the car is getting Nappa Leather seatcovers (Stanley) in Beige as well as all fabric trims will be converted to leather...

Help on the interior will be appreciated.

Hi Guys,
This is my first post on Team Bhp.
I thought of sharing some of my 2007 Skoda Laura Pictures with you.The body Kit is from Milotec & the car is shod with Michelin Energy MXV8 225 55 R 16 Tyres on OEM Alloys.The Engine is remapped By Petes,with a Cotton Green Filter now doing 140+ Bhp.
Other Mods include a Skoda Colombus 6.5 inch Touchscreen Headunit,also known as MFD 3 with OEM Skoda Bluetooth Preparation,Image Dynamics Q450.4,Image Dynamics Q600.1 Amps.
The subwoofer is a 12 inch ID Max custom fitted in the boot.
The front speakers have been replaced with Hertz Space 6.1.Hertz 3W 40 Midrange & Rainbow CAL 20 Tweeters.
In the Rear the speakers have been changed to Rainbow SLX 230.All have been used in stock locations.The cabling is all from Connection Audison & Kicker.
I also have installed an Escort Passport 9500i Radar Detector wih custom installation.
The installation has been done by Jasdeep & Mukul Patel at Gurgaon whom I would like to thank using this forum & would recommend them to anyone looking for the very best in professional custom audio install.
I have also ordered a sprint-booster & it should be installed this week.
More Pictures to follow.
Cheers & wishing everyone a very happy & prosperous New Year.

Hey buddy.
That vRs logo on the front grill doesn't look pretty good
Its a bit wider than it should have been

BTW. you mentioned 225/55 R16.
The stock tyres are 215/55

Kindly recheck your profile
It should be 225/50 and if its not, then its not the proper size you are using.

I forgot to add that the car has been lowered to original European Spec.

Buddy the VRS Logo is OEM & the stock tyres were 205 55 R 16.I had goodyear Eagle F1 215 55 R 16 earlier but have recently upgraded to 225 55 R16 Michelins & find that the ride quality has improved significantly with no issues at all.

@Sandeep: Great choice of mods. Especially the sprintbooster, good to see it getting popular on other cars too as I have only heard of them being used on BMWs so far. And they deliver superb results. Do lets us know of it's results and also the cost.

@abhinav: I dont think there is any harm in upsizing one notch up and keeping the same profile. It gives you the extra grip and doesnt hamper the ride quality at all, sidewall is slightly increased so it improves the ride if anything. Going anymore wider with the same profile will increase the sidewall size too much.

Radar detector will let you know if there is a radar speed detector that has aimed at you. Lets you slow down when the device beeps and escape the law!

Sprint Booster - guess is that it has something to do with the initial pickup.

Nice looking car there, Sandeepm777!

How about some pics of the ICE in the ICE section? You've got good stuff in there! First custom 3-way setup in a Skoda here, if I'm not mistaken
