@ bharatbs: Leather shade is 'Grouse'
@rpm: I believe the 'warranty' validity is purely in the eye of the beholder. In this case its the dealership.
If it has working fogs, it should be compatible with the VRs bumper & fogs.

Your ride looks awesome. What ever accessories you've added are classy.
Why don't you try looking for New VRS spoiler.
You can find them in this link: [COLOR=black]Skoda Octavia II - Authentic Octavia II RS spoiler - ORIGINAL Skoda Auto : superskoda.com[/COLOR]

I see you've managed to get the fog lamps installed. Did the A.S.S. help you in getting it installed or did you have to get it done outside? I remember you were trying to get it hooked up to an external switch since the workshop were unable to retrofit it with the wiring system.

Hi Jatin,

I just got myself a Laura TSI ( Black) and I must confess your posts were a big inspiration in helping me make my decision. I've put michelin PLCs along with leather seats and wooden trims, but its a stock car otherwise.

Unfortunately, both my ORVM glasses were stolen tonight when I had parked the car in a side-street. It seems to have been cleanly removed and I can see the bare wiring inside the mirror casing, which seems to be intact. My initial searches seem to suggest that I'll have to pay an obscene price for a new OEM assembly. I do remember reading that you had ordered a convex pair from U.K. I have the link too from that post. Can you/ someone here please tell me if

A) What the cost of both mirrors ( just the glass would be?) i i buy on the UK link?
B) Whether i can get just the glass, how much it would cost in India?
C) Is it just the mirror, or is there some back-plate which you need to stick the mirror on? Does this come with the mirrors in the UK link?
D) Will the electronic adjustment feature work if i use the UK piece?
E) Can I do this myself or do i need to take this to a workshop? My dealer is JMD, Andheri.
F) And if none of the above works, should i get a OEM set for both sides? how much will it cost?

Desperately looking for responses as it's almost impossible to drive even for a few days without mirrors in this traffic!!
