Default Turbo lag on Vrs

i am planning to buy a used Octy Vrs.I have almost made my decision but the only doubt i had was at what RPM does the turbo kick in "PROPERLY"? The car i am planning to buy, the turbo come in only by 3500 RPM,is this normal? Please help.

turbo kicks in around 1750 rpm and has a pretty wide power band. The turbo lag is noticeable before that but once it kicks in its a rocket till the redline. However its strange to see that the car you drove kicks in at 3500 rpm. Are you really sure about that?
my suggestion would be to test drive another RS and if you feel the difference then definately stay away from this car as skoda repairs are pretty expensive!

Test drive an new VRS, it will answer your question. Turbo starts around 1700+ but we can make it out only on concentration, and we will get a real feel of pulling hard at 2500 RPM, depends on how hard we floor the accelerator.

FYI, there aint no new vRS, because it is a discontinued model.
