Congrats Mehul thats a nice Looking Octavia

Everyone has difference preferences & likes so as long as you are happy its all worth it :-)

Some changes that I would like to see on the car though

- Better headlamps, maybe the RS one
- Better RVMs something different these dual bar types are quite common
- Dual (functional) integrated exhaust Pipes at rear

Enjoy the car man

Thanks Buddy...

@ Headlamps: We are in process of getting better 1s.. maybe from Audi family..
@ RVMs: Didn't got much options coz of rear tyre configuration..
@ Dual Exhaust: Not possible coz to decreased length of car.. Base of octavia's boot is quiet low, to accomodate the spare wheel.. Else wise that was in my list of things to be done..

Planning for the A4's with LEDs

What has rear tire configuration got to do with design of RVMs?

oh Ok

Although the following concept was based on a Superb, but I guess something along these lines would have looked somewhat more subtle and classy.

Butt as I said earlier, what matters is that the owner likes it and this is just my own personal opinion!

Yeah...it looks good from the front but the side profile, especially from mid of the car, looks too bulky (which suits a normal Octavia fine). But anyway, it's your preference!!

@Arush I have seen you build this car from the above pic when you conceptualised this desing. And it has come out extremely well from there. Ofcourse there are always individual opinions about addition and deletion from the design and i would also have some. Personally i would have loved it to have come out exactly as the above pic but i do understand there are design limitations as its easy on papers than actually done. Congrats! It was a long tedious build any its taken a lot of effort from your side and your team as i could see in all the time i visited the shop.

@Mehul - I still remember you when you first came to Arush's shop with the car when it was red originally(i was sitting at the same table when you were discussing the mods) and it started with basic mods and slowly developed to this after sometime but congrats on the build, now you really have a looker to drive.
