Though this is an old thread, going through the posts was fun and thrilling too !

Also, it reinstates the trust and knowledge levels of the TBHP members for you to rely on, during such sensitive situations like buying pre-owned cars.

@raajks, By the by, eventually what did you buy ? I hope i havent missed any other thread with regard to your final buy ?

There is a Yellow vRS (KL01 registered) in Cochin which has been up for sale since sometime. It was basically a TD car, which was crashed badly (lot of underbody damage) and has been swapping hands since.. I think the one HAFI mentioned is that very car, i could be wrong though.

Default Re: An experience chasing a Silver Skoda vRS

I was scouting for a used Octavia recently and I had to visit a workshop to see one, as it was being serviced there. At the workshop yard, I noticed a yellow VRS and out of curiosity, I checked it out - the interiors were in shambles, the steering was not of an original RS and was stitched together, so was the dashbaord. I checked the no. plate and saw it was KA reg - something in my mind clicked - could it be THAT car I read about so long ago in TBHP, when an unsuspecting Tbhpian came down from B'lore for an RS, only to be shown a total loss car? And another Tbhpian gave advance for it but luckily he did'nt go for the deal?. I clicked some pics of the car and after searching for this thread, I am sure it's the same car raajks and HAFI have seen - the no. plate and description matches from raajks and hafi's posts.

Here are the pics

According to workshop guys, it has been bought by some TV producer. Shortly after buying the car, it failed to start - and it has been at the workshop since - they have not been able to figure out the problem. It has more than 1 lakhs on the ODO. Guess it has become a money pit for the poor guy who bought it.
