Thanks for the info. Fortunately, these came standard with the car. Infact, for the monsoons, the dealer gave me four black plastic mats which i will replace with beige plastic mats after the monsoon. Though the carpet mats look nice, they can't be used without a plastic mat on it else they would get very dirty within a week.

Regret the delay, am traveling. Will post more pics this weekend.

Noticed something quiet suprising, this car does get a fair amount of attension for what it's worth. Maybe because there aren't many on the road but moreover to a layman it's styling and longish appeal makes it feel more prestigous than even the 5 series to some

Congrats Sahil,
the car looks fantastic! Please let us know about your service experience and from where.
BTW, even we bought our Combi from JMD, and they delivered the car on time, and with a good discount as well.

JMD messed up my discount actually, since the Superb's on a long wait list they don't offer any discounts. However I spoke with Skoda HO directly, they offered my 20k per car but JMD insisted that when I buy the second car they would give a combined disc of 40k.

Thanks! It's an all Indian rather CKD garage, hopefully some day I can add the oomph factor in the garage by adding imports/exotics.
For now I am looking to add a SUV to complete this modest garage for the time being

Congrats!
If we keep aside the A.S.S this is best VFM car in the respective segment.
I think this is second new superb on t-bhp.
First was a black one.

I retired one Endeavour 6 months back and got the new one but I couldn't digest buying another one. So I'm gonna replace the current one left with the Fortuner.

Must say, nice taste in cars you got Sahil. Would it be possible to post a couple of wider pictures? A side shot maybe.
