All black. I thought the RS came with a black - silver combo. Atleast mine did (in August 04).
They did. But most have gone ahead with a full leather reworking on the interiors.

rchimni, if you are in Pune and are looking at options other than an RS but a Skoda: I saw two good TDi's one is an L&K and the other is the Ambience for sale at a dealer opposite Autolines Petrol pump on University Road. He also has an Opel Vectra for sale and I plan to do a test drive of the Opel because I haven't driven one yet .

Out of curiousity, how many used cars do you check out? I have noticed you posting on used cars (most makes and models) since a long time.

In the business?

Vectra takes the cake in terms of resale value. There is a 2002/3 vectra for 3.75L & still no takers.

Default 2nd Hand Skoda RS EDIT: Now bought !

Hi All

My hunt for vRS finally ended last week , found one in pristine condition here are the details

Color - Silver
mileage - 15900
Model - Jun'06
Regd - Del
Owner- single
Interior - Black and silver ( leather )
Tyres - Dunlop

Two services done , next one scheduled at about 21000 Kms , with complete service history.

There are two sctratches on the car on on the right hand side fender( which is quite deep) and the other on the front bumper.

I had the car checked out by a relative who is mechanical engineerand runs a workshop, so the underbody was inspected on the ramp and the bodyline by his painters/denters who gave it a clean chit.


I bought this car in Delhi and plan to drive it down from Delhi to Pune the weekend of the 30th of Sep.( Will post pictures then )

Thanks all for your inputs..

Well done! You had to go to great lengths to find this one! Congrats. Now we can close this thread and look forward to a new one on your ownership experience.

Rchimni, be careful. I know of one white Skoda RS which had a very bad crash and was done up as good as new right before my eyes. By the way, there's another RS for sale. Don't remember the model year though. It's silver with black interiors, running around 165-170 BHP with a carbonio intake, Remus exhaust and slightly remapped ECU. Belongs to a guy who owns a very prestigious workshop in South Bombay and is known to keep his cars in pristine condition. I also think that he's got Koni suspensions and his car was third in its category in this year's speedrun. Asking price is around 9 lacs.


Oops! a little late on the reply.

There is a Dealer in Pune - Wanowrie area who has a silver vectra for sale (Iam seeing it from atleast past an year and it aint going nowhere!! ), i had gone about and asked him the price and he quoted a 10Lakhs for that vehicle. Now you would ask me the year/model right? i didnt bother to ask him cause when I saw the car it had its roof dented in above the B pillar about 1.5 inches and that gave me the idea, on asking the dealer he said something had fallen on the roof not an accident, well he said that and I didn't even feel like asking him anything else. The car was clean otherwise. funny these dealers think a big car can go for any price. Leaving I asked him do you really think a person is going to buy a second hand dented car for 10Lakhs. You wont believe what he replied and quote (this is really hilarious - these guys are dumb or what?) "YES, there are people who earn a crore a year, it is for such people! after that I wouldnt buy even a match stick from the guy let alone a CAR

There are plenty of cars which you cant get new for 10L right?
