I'm guessing Mahi inquires for her Octy RS. My vote goes to the 5-spokers.

2. second one in the first row
3. second last one in the first row

Not only is the 5spoker very common, it doesn't look all that great on the Octavia. There are many Skoda's with that design & it doesn't look great...looks ok. The last one in 1st row is also not bad.

You guys do realise that 2nd last from 2nd row and 3rd from 1st row and what not comes without a reference point, right...? Which side are you guys starting from...??

I'd personally take home the slightly large looking one in the middle row on the extreme right. Or i'd take the middle one from the botttom-most row(the 5-spoke one... yeah, so what if it common!! Its still good!!)
