With a 2.0L heart and DQ 381 how difficult is it to make an RS version in India? Would just need a ecu tune, upgraded intake, down pipe and a better exhaust. Why can't they make one as a CKD. Must be something to with Audi

Actually very difficult. The RS245 uses an engine that is basically found in the Golf GTI in Europe and has a low compression ratio. This means all the mods you mentioned along with an upgraded turbo can be strapped onto it for kicking out better power.

The 2.0 TSI used on the Allspace, Superb, Octavia and the upcoming Kodiaq is not the same engine. It has different internals and is running a compression ratio that is a lot higher than the one in the 245. This puts severe restrictions on how much juice you can extract out of it.

Are the double "L" shaped DRLs only present in cars with matrix lighting? No octavia test cars posted in this thread seem to have this type of DRLs. Are we not getting them?

Mod Note: Please continue the discussion in the new Octavia thread (Scoop Pics! 4th-gen Skoda Octavia showcased in India)


I might be the only one not digging the design too much and finding it a bit too quirky for my liking.
