No, financing was through HDFC Bank. But as you probably know there is a 'Skoda Celebrations' promotion on. My guess is there should be some discounts on financing too..

Congratulations on the new car. It looks beautiful. I would love to upgrade my Corolla to a TSI someday. How much did the mats cost you?

If you dont mind could you share the cost of the accessories (especially the chrome tip exhausts and the spoiler)?

The quoted prices were:
Exhaust: Rs. 4.7k
Spoiler: Rs. 14k

But they were part of the accessories package I took, so got some discount on the entire package..

The Kagu 3D mats were Rs. 5.2k.. steep price for mats.. but worth it because they are really practical & maintain the interior decor well.

Hey Decced. Congratulations on your new car. Absolutely loved your opening post. Crisp, to the point writeup & stunning, crystal pictures. It is indeed great to see true petrolheads still buying enthusiast cars regardless of fuel prices. Enjoy your new car, will be following this thread closely for the interesting writing & hope to see more similarly stunning pictures.

On a side note, the accessories you have chosen give the car a perfectly balanced look. The rear is literally transformed. All you need now are a good pair of alloys to finish the entire look.

Looks lovely, decced, the rear spoiler is really nice. Great to see so many TSIs on the forum. Here's to many years of safe, trouble-free driving.

decced, here's wishing you an awesome long and memorable run with the TSI. Drive safe!

Congratulations decced! The Laura looks awesome in the Silver shade. And the accessories you added are really tasteful. And I really loved the way you have placed the pictures within your review.

Are you planning to add-on leather seats as well?

Enjoy the highway!

Hi decced, were you by any chance at Khandala Sunday evening caught up in traffic? I saw a Laura TSi with the TBHP stickers like the ones in your pictures. I was in my Altis few cars behind you and then few cars ahead.

Thanks for the wishes. Glad you liked the pictures.. The thing is the other photos were from my DSLR while that one was from my phone.. During the run on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway just after the sprint to 200kph.. So yeah it's a special photo for me too..

...
Yes, I plan to add leather, maybe after the rains.. Was not sure of their viability in the hot & humid Mumbai summers & on long drives in the Indian heat.. Would love some informed inputs on the subject..

Yes, had been for a 'drive to lunch' with the folks out to a dhaba on the old Mumbai-Pune highway.. Maroon Altis by any chance?

I guess I did not notice.. This was on the way back to Mumbai right? Sorry I missed you.. Am always on the lookout for T-Bhpians.. In fact I've had a couple of mutual spottings with two LTD'ed T-Bhpians on the EEH in Mumbai.. Always makes my day

Yup on the way back to Mumbai. Its time to get those TBHP stickers on my cars. I can imagine how it feels to spot a fellow BHPian.

Great Idea. I am game for a collective response to Skoda. My email id is cedricsg@mtnl.net.in Request all affected TSI owners to email me their names, location and contact number. I will call & get further details.

Cedric,
Great initiative. I have mailed you the details. Looking forward to hearing from you. I feel a collective effort may elicit a response from Skoda.
