Nice mods. Spoiler looks awesome with those LED's. Just wanted to ask you, do you have any issues with your car? The reason I'm asking is the new superb, everyone seems to be facing some issue or the other with it.

No clue Nirmal. Anyways not the V6 SuperB which I want.

BTW there was a 51K run 2006 V6 TDi Black Superb for sale in Tcr.You might have seen it[KL 07 ** 2777].It was sold to the broker for 9.5lakhs but the broker was trying to sell it for 11lakhs.lol.

Jack sparrow - in 3 years of ownership the only issue was a recent malfunction of the headlight control unit . It has to be replaced and costs 12k. Worst problem is non availability of spares . Skodas are gr8 cars but the service is by far the worst I have seen . Next stop may be a BMW or Audi but after 2 more years . Veelubhai - the resale of superb is bad unless somebody comes looking for a car like that u cannot expect more than that . But then why change the car when it is so good . After my test drive of the 530d I was wondering what so gr8 about the car that it is twice as expensive as superb apart from the brand and the in you face looks.

Nirmal - Yeah, of course Iam sure you dont want to change your car for another two years.How many kms has it done? I think you must get ur no: plate changed.Get the ind plates,it will look better on your car.

It's just done 22k . It's the 2007 facelifted model . Which is the best place to get numberplates made .

Good to know that you are enjoying your drive. As you said, A.S.S is really bad. There are other people on this forum who are having tough time with the SKODA guys and their new Superb.
