Congrats on your new acquisition mate and welcome to the "Club Rapid". Which variant have you chosen? And which color? Please post a pic or two for the visual treat and try to put up the ownership thread ASAP. Hope you are enjoying it full on. Happy motoring

Welcome to the "Club Rapid" mate. Please post the OTR price and price break-up along side the other deals you have availed during the purchase. Happy motoring!

Thanks, mate.

The OTR was 10.43l gurgaon. I got GPS, Nuvi 2578 (with bluetooth), art leather seat covers, striping, foot mats, extended warranty, road side assistance package for five years, a car cover, and a finance fees waiver, of about Rs. 4,700 and to top it all, a nice courteous delivery process.

Just love the projector head lamps! Quick question, since the Ultima doesn't come with the Antares alloys, what are the alloys like? From what i have heard is that they are the same ones from the Vento? Is that right? Some pics of them would be awesome.

Hello

Please post detailed pictures of the seat covers and the floor mats you have got.

Was the seat cover put over the original fabric or did they ripped off the original seats? How is the fit and finish? And is it original Skoda accessory?

How much do these seat covers and floor mats cost?

Thanks

One thing I forgot to mention, I got the scuff plates also, with RPAID written on each of them.

The alloys are the same that earlier came with the elegance version.

This is now prompting me to put up a separate thread for the ultima. lol

The pics of the alloys are attached. For the pics of the seat covers, I shall have to reach for the car and click them. So I shall do it in the evening.

I was under the impression that it came with New seven-spoke alloy wheels. Did you opt for the Antares alloys instead?

They had two options, one seven spoke for the ambition and one this for the elegance. I didn't ask them for the seven spoke.

Makes sense now..did you have a look at the seven spoke ones? I have a niggly feeling they are the ones from the Vento.

Also, i'm assuming here, the steering is the 3 spoke with mounted audio control's? The steering wheel i got in mine is a little different and steering mounted controls dearly missed. (sorry,pic not from my actual car, it's off the net, haven't really had any time to click any images)

Hope your ownership thread isn't too far off

Hey Pferdestarke, your thread was one of the very few detailed ones for MY 14 Rapid. It gave me some great insight & helped me seal my decision to go for Rapid. Now I am keen to know how has your first few months with your car been. How about an update on your ownership experience so far ?

Bumping this thread after a long while. I am glad that you found this thread informative and useful. And coming to ownership experience, I am simply loving every mile with this machine. Completed 1 year of ownership without any hassles and recently got the 1st servicing done. The shifts have become smoother now (earlier they were very notchy) and the ride quality is as good as it was earlier. I am really contented with the Rapid!
