The vRS comes with a decent HU (Alpine 9830) as stock. All you need to get going is a good 4 ch. amp (starts at 7K), front and rear speakers (10K) and a sub (6K). For about 2K more you can get a ipod cable (KCA 420i). So for 25K you can have a good starter system as suauly the sky is the limit.

Boy that was quite fast . You seem to be in love. Congratulations on getting your hands on the RS. It will be even more special since its not made anymore. Decision well taken. Waiting for the delivery report and pictures along with your initial report .

The best part along with the one you mentioned is that i called up the dealers just like that and by luck got one. Otherwise it was doors to the entry into the turbo petrol sector

Congrats abhinav . Geat choice . 1 lac Rs. discount sounds good but did you try to bargain hard ? If not i think you should and i am sure they will come furthur down cos though Vrs is a fantastic car but the sales 've been preety poor and needless to say when the salesmen do find the takers ,they dont let them go ...

many many congrats abhinav...wow its a dream car to drive

i was inches closer of getting my own but finally dad said NO as he's scared of skoda spare parts prices(and someone told him that this car is too fast for youngsters)

so maybe a second hand vRS in future for me and already saving for it

but really congrats mate!!
