Do Take care of the car.
And Try not to use the headlamp washer until very necessary.

you dint know that redsfx :P
a single headlamp if damaged would cost you around 40 K so be careful with your driving. Basically most of the skoda parts have sky rocketing prices. Its better if you stay with stock xenons. Also dont go for high wattage bulbs as they can damage the reflectors and you would have no other option but to replace the whole headlamp.

Actually a single headlamp costs you 36k plus if you also damage the bulb, that's another 20k!

Its Quite sad that a great car like the vRs has so high maintenance costs attached to it.

Old Honda City was a great car and did not require you to open your lockers again and again ( A small wallet was sufficient for it)
