Classic thread. Just read all 24 pages of it in one go. This definitely needs moving to the Best threads on TBHP section.

@Sam, you rock dude. As if the English thread wasn't awesome enough. This takes the cake.

I have always liked the Superb and think it offers incredible VFM for a luxe car. I was tempted to go for its baby sister the Laura DSG but then decided to save up for the real thing. Maybe in 5 years I write one of these eh?

Thanks for your kind words.

Unfortunately, the first Christmas with my superb is spent in separation. The car is at the Skoda garage.

In an unfortunate accident, my wife's driver crashed the car, albeit not so badly.
It needs new headlights and a bumper and a grille and some small denting.

I'm keeping my head held high, but I'm very upset about it.

Very Sorry to hear about the accident Sam. Hope nobody got hurt.

When I read " The car is at the Skoda garage", I feared the worst. then was mighty pleased that the trip to the garage is not due to the car but an accident.

Hope the dealer is giving due attention. Do post more pics once she gets done up.

As you rightly said, keep your chin up mate, pray the cheerful season get you through this small mishap

ta.

Hi Sam, Sorry to hear about the accident. Lucky that it was not a bad one...
One phenomenon I noticed with your Superb thread - don't see many Skoda bashing comments in our forum nowadays.

Have a great new year!

Hi Sam,

Your threads are always enjoyable to read, fun, interesting and have something new to learn about.

I hope you have the car back after its "broken face plastic surgery". Do update about the spare prices and the costs you incurred, if you dont mind.

Hi, Sam,

I am sorry to hear about what happened to your Car. I hope such an event doesn't occur again, for as long as you choose to have her.

I have been reading the Yeti blogs for quite a while. I must say, that you are a fantastic Author. Clearly amongst the best that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Your writing has a beautiful flow to it. All your stories are so wonderfully layered.

Thank you very much for sharing so many of your life experiences on this forum. It has been an enlightening experience reading your work.

Thanks once again.

Nikhil.

Have blanked out some of the numbers of course.


Downside: Now no matter when I call Akbar, his phone is busy. Dammit.
