Simply Amazing..!!
I really want to buy the Superb for my dad but the skoda horror stories really turn down my enthusiasm (urge to buy) of booking one. Nevermind.

Congratulations on your beautiful purchase.
CHEERS..!!

Congrats mate!

The car is excellent with loads of features. This one is a better buy than accord when it comes to just the car.

Enjoy many more scorching miles from this scorcher

Congratulations on buying the most luxurious VFM sedan in the country! Take care of her and I just hope you don't become a victim of Skoda's woes.

Congrats! You've bought a car which has no equal on the VFM front. As you said, it could have been priced at 40 lakh and still make sense. Good colour too! Silver looks ordinary on most cars but I've seen silver Superbs and they look incredible. Have fun

Great buy hokysmoke ...

A wonderful car. No other car offers stuff that this one offers in any of the price category close to it. This is a direct competition in the S-class category.

Congrats on the luxo-barge! Its amazing how a 22 lakh rupee Superb makes 35 lakh rupee 3 / C / A4 sedans look pointless. And takes the fight right upto the E Class & the 5 series on comfort, build and amenities. Fact is, if it weren't for Skoda's shoddy service, I would have probably bought one by now. Not sure if you can call a 20 lakh car this, but the Superb is surely VFM.

Nothing this side of the S Class can beat the DSG for butter-smooth shifts. I'm a huge fan of the DSGs. Only doubts linger over their reliability.

@ Sahil
I bought it from Autobahn in Andheri.
Holy smoke! You didn't search through our forums prior to purchase, did ya? Please use ONLY JMD for your services. Auto Bagh is one of Mumbai's lousiest dealers (across all car brands).

What's stopping you?

Congrats again. And do drive safe.

Congrats on your super superb, it is truly the best value at 21 odd Lacs. and rightly is the largest selling vehicle in it's segment.

The features do beat all cars but the rear leg room and the overall coocooned feeling it gives makes us feel secure.

The run-in has been completed, and I tried out the sport mode a few days ago. It was MIND BLOWING! One second its a nice gentle refined car, and the next second it turns into a monster. The world around you just turns into a blur. The engine note is great, it sounds like an angry bull. The car feels like it has unlimited amounts of power left in reserve.

congrats on the buy, holy. as everyone has unanimously agreed, great buy, and nothing else on the market even comes close in terms of value. sat in a 1.8 recently, was impressed with the performance, and simply blown away by the interiors! wow.

how many km's before the first service? am keen to hear your experience with the infamous after-sales network...
