I am taking the liberty of giving you some "uncalled for advice" but I am giving it anyway

I am sure you are aware that "with power comes responsibility"

So get used to the feel of the car before you start ripping, as the RS is a fast & powerful car. It's road behaviour is very very different than the Honda City you have been used to thus far.

Once you get used to it - go right ahead & have a ball !!!


Cheers
thanks a lot big bro and i'll keep your advice in mind. Thanks for your honest advice.
by the way is it bad to have an after market exhaust end can instead of stock one? Just wanted to know..

Dude
be careful with the car, because only I know how i am controlling my speed.
Firstly get yourself well aquitted with the behaviour of the car before ripping it.
i dont have any idea dude whether its a FFE or just an exhaust tip. How to tell?
and tell me about it dude..i have to keep all my senses attentive while driving this car. After having drive an OHC which requires good revving of engine, the skoda engine is pretty different and in a different leagues alltogether. Its just a rocket once its past 1700 rpm. Speed is something which is in every bit and soul of this car!

what a beauty.and this one is really maintained too.can't we get some low mileage vRS's around.say under 20000 kilometers run.
Its really difficult to find low mileage vRS in market navpreet because its very difficult to sell this car so early

Congratulations Ashish on the RS !!

Even I REALLY REALLY want this car considering the existing performance as well as the bolt-on possibilities. But that'll have to wait for a few months atleast !! :( . OT but please PM me how much you picked it up for.

p.s.
Wow .. you got this Intake as a Bonus !!

dude are you planning to mod it in the near future, may be step up to 230bhp or the monstrous 300bhp? Since the warranty's done you could turn this wolf into a demon man.

yeah sure man thats a good idea but i dont have any idea about costs involved. I also have to get better quality speakers. So mods will have to wait for a while.

yup you can get it done it at autophyche.also he's the official dealer of petes parts in our part of the country.so get a remap.you already have an intake i guess.so i don't think you'll need anything else.and with a remap of your ecu you'll be good for 180-200bhp.

this'll be stage one.for stage 2 you can contact shuvd.his 1.8Tpi is an awesome stage 2 machine.

@ Ashish

Oh there is nothing wrong with having an aftermarket end can !! It was just an observation that's all.

As for remapping the car.. I think it is too early in the day for that. You have as it is "Post graduated" from a City to the RS, so I think your need for speed should be well taken care of for the time being.

Once you get totally used to this car (or get bored with it) - you can consider the remap then.

Autopsyche is the dealer for the Pete's box & the remap. I got my
Skoda deisel remapped from him.


Nice to see you are enjoying the car !!!!


Cheers
