Where is it registered?

My white vRS is exactly a week old as of today, so a ownership report will be some time away. There is lo-oooots of stuff I have in mind for it
One week is too much to keep people waiting. Maybe I should pay you a visit at your shop and see the car itself rather than looking at the snaps.

Total of three. Different colours. In GOA.

Now if someone could bring in the last remaining blue, it would round of all the colours that Skoda offers us Indians
I wish I could, but a government servant buying a "sports car" (that what people in the office call it), that too petrol will raise quite a few eyebrows. I'd probably have to be happy picking up an Octavia VRS second hand. There used to be an old doctor who used to drive a silver one and someone had a Yellow one. Otherwise I don't re-collect seeing any other Octavia VRS in Goa.

Are you serious? The number on my car also is 5933. What a coincidence, or is it?

There is a saying " Birds of the same feather always flock together ".
How absolutely true.
Same views, same colour and the same numericals too
Akshay1234, if this is called coincidence, we have to meet up.
For sure, we could be the only two White Laura vRS's on Team Bhp that have identical Colours with the same registration numericals !!!

Those threads aren't allowed any more. At least car specific threads aren't so I assume brand specific aren't either.

@Ketla2411, Congrats. I love the VRS and I am sure you love it more (Considering you paid for it). Look forward to a detailed ownership report and I am guessing this getting the Pete's too.
I envy you Goa folks.

To add to what akshay1234 has said, you can see all the pics of a certain model by using the MAKE & MODEL dropdowns on our PhotoGallery : Photo Gallery: Team-BHP

For example, we have 111 pages of Skoda Laura pics.

Was trying that actually and it works ok on my ipad so far.
However, the radio buttons seem a teeny bit slow response!

Last edited by Rehaan : 25th June 2012 at 14:28. Reason: Which "radio buttons"?? PM me, lets not to too OT here. Thanks :)

I just went thorough your profile and saw that you already have Laura TSI, then why you want to buy VRs ?

There aren't much changes in the VRs as compared to the TSI, plus the heart of both the cars are same.

If you're really keen on buying one, I suggest you to wait for couple of days more, As updated cruze with 163 PS of power and 360 NM of torque is coming soon. Being a diesel, No more worries for fuel bills or hikes

Cheers,
Sameer

Good catch!

@prithwi-81 : Just get the suspension from the vRS put onto your TSI. Everything else doesn't really make any difference (at least to me )!
