But from a noise perspective, the external noise of the 1.5 is already too less so I don't think this would make a difference. Cabin noise will anyway remain unchanged.
Thanks. I will check with the dealer here as my yearly service is due this month. Mine is 1.0 and was already asked by few whether it is a diesel so any little improvement helps.

Re: Skoda Slavia Review

Need some urgent advice from fellow members. Have got a deal on a 2022 MY Slavia 1.5 AT from a dealer for INR 21.93 Lakhs (onroad price) after a discount of INR 1 Lakh. Includes Extended warranty for 5th & 6th year, Skoda maintenance Service package, free essential accesory kit. As per the SA the car is manufactured between Oct-Dec'22 but will verify that during PDI if I go ahead with the purchase.

Is the 1 Lakh discount good enough or should I negotiate for more & for how much more.

Thanks in advance.

1.Ask for discount on ex showroom price, because insurance price is always raised up.
2. Check insurance price online and ask the dealer to match that price.
3. Then add values of extended warranty, service package and accessories.
4. Then you'll know how much is the exact discount on the ex showroom price.
5. Try to get offer from some other dealer, tell them what you are getting and what they are ready to give you, you can even try a different city dealer.

But see these offers may last till the stock of 2022 is not over. After that you don't know.

Haha yeah mine is 1.0 as well and sometimes engine note frustrates me. I regret not picking the 1.5 sometimes for this reason alone!

During the engine start stop, the vibrations sometimes feel more than what one expects from a petrol engine. This seems to have become more prominent in the past few weeks. I have clocked over 12k kms so far, hope this become better after the first service.

Anyone found any changes in their 1.0 engine after the first service?

For the horn change, was there a requirement to remove the bumper for Slavia?.

If yes, post removal and reinstallation, was there any sound or creaks heard due to this?. I am going to change the horn for my Kushaq Monte Carlo 1.5, but was worried about removal of bumper for the same, so i was thinking will purchase the wind style horn and then do swap few more years down the line.

I got to say, love how smooth and quiet the 1.5 DSG combo is, the overtaking abilities of the 1.5 TSI along with that DQ200 gearbox is really underrated, this along with straight line stability of these cars is surreal. Puts a grin every single time

Thanks for sharing your experience with Skoda Slavia.

May i know which service workshop did you get the horn replaced? I believe this is the trumpet horn that you are taking about. Did the service folks say anything about warranty void issue after the stock horn replacement?

Yesterday we got delivery of Kushaq 1.5 Monte Carlo in Mumbai(Mody India) and the sales folks had no clue about horn replacement and also claimed that even service center does not do this. Additionally they also claimed it will void the warranty if we got it replaced anywhere.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Skoda Slavia Review

Happy to share that on the eve of new year,i took delivery of Slavia Style AT 1.0 here at Hyderabad. Shall attach the pics.and pen down my buying and delivery experience in a subsequent post.

Having driven for 250 odd kms.,i noticed since beginning that once AC is on,after every minute, there is a sound like 'sssss' coming from i think the fan for 5 seconds and then it goes off. Its annoying in an otherwise silent car. Is this normal? Is anyone else experiencing the same?

Compared to what i got on Style 1.0 AT,i think the add-ons you are receiving is very good esp.if it is a Nov/ Dec vehicle. The showroom will already be having the VIN for all cars they have in stock and you need not wait till the PDI to figure the month of manufacture. I neither got the 5th and 6th year extended warranty nor the accessories. However my deal was sweetened because mine was a Dec'22 manufactured vehicle. They also matched the insurance quoted outside. One thing i learnt is if you like the car, negotiate reasonably but don't pull to an extent that it snaps only for a few thousands.

Foll. is what i used..from this forum to identify the month of manufacture: If your 6th VIN character is G, then it represents the Month - July
Month Codes:
A = JAN
B = FEB
C = MAR
D = APR
E = MAY
F = JUN
G = JUL
H = AUG
J = SEP
K = OCT
L = NOV
M = DEC

What I have got installed in my car is an official Skoda accessory trumpet horn meant for this car. This comes with a bill and is also updated in the backend for any future references. So I am unsure why there would be a concern with warranty.

Yes the bumper had to be removed. But it doesn't make any difference in terms of looks or any issues like sound or creaking. Every fastener has been put back as it was before and there is no sign that the bumper was removed. Not sure why this apprehension since it's a regular job to remove and refit bumper.

Since my Kushaq is brand new car, been a month now, i really don't like the factory default horn, sounds too meek, so was contemplating on whether i should risk removal of bumper for the horn replacemnt, what if post fitment, i get creaks or any other sound. So checked with you to see if it made any difference due to bumper refitment.

Congratulations on the purchase Ram, i have also noticed this, there is a distinct blow of air from the hvac unit no matter what temperature i set and the fan speed is set to bare minimum, i was curious about the same, as my i20 never made this. Can other owners confirm on this

Removing and refitting of bumper will never give you any sort of noises even if there is a shoddy job done. Worst case the bumper might even fall off but no chance of annoying noises especially in the cabin. So don't have such apprehensions. Just check that all screws and clips are fitted properly and there are no uneven gaps. In my case I didn't even check all that and took a look only after coming back home. These cars are well put t together and even with a few screws missing it will just work fine

Have a similar sound on my Virtus GT and is deemed normal by VW
