The only difference in the diesel is that it does not have a spoiler like the petrol one and the exhaust is bend downwards.
I drove the car in some wild traffic my car was stranded for almost 30 mins in traffic and I got FE of 5Km/L.

some more pics for the time being.

The website was impressive so was the magazine reviews. (Skoda publicity!!)

It would be nice to know from a fellow T-BHPian on how the car really feels. It would be nice if you include some pictures.

If you see the 6th pic, the odo rings looks like eyes,the chrome lip looks like smiley,the skoda logo looks like the nose & with the steering it complets a smiling face.
all the mirrors are antiglare,it helps alot.Parktronic is awesome,Few more shots.

Congractulations Kedar. All the best with your new car. Would like to reiterate what Eddy said. Be personally present at the location you give your car for servicing. It always helps specially with Skoda.

Congratulations Kedar! Although it must be sad to let the Accord go but the Superb is surely a very drool worthy vehicle.

Do I see a urge for a Alloy/Tyre upgrade?

I love everything about the car except the tail-lights. And the test car I saw here was undershod with 16 inchers. A stupid question, is the auto parking option available in India like the lexus? And do let us know about the little things that you love about the car, some shots of the engine bay as well.

Hey thanks quickdraw/quickblackberry

I will be sticking to the oem alloys and tyres,coz if anything goes wrong with the suspension,comany warranty will void.Auto parking or parkassist is not available in the Indian version.But the parktronic looks awesome on the massive colour display.

No, Parking Assistant is not available in the Indian version of the Superb. It won't work well in our chaotic environment anyway.

Congratulations! I'd love to hear more about the diesels driveability and performance, since its the petrol that's been getting all the attention. PLease update us with details on the driving experience.

Word of caution : Keep your eyes and ears open when she goes in for services. The last thing you want is your parts replaced, a wrong diagnosis or an unjustifiably inflated bill.

Skoda has a 'superb' product on their hands, Now's the time to get their act together. Ps. My friend might pick up the V6.
