I just got a Christmas tree on my dash. ESC and TPMS lights came on after the car was started. My car is driven pretty regularly. (2-3 times a week, 300km/ month). The car kept on beeping randomly when I started to drive. Limped her back home. The car was driving perfectly besides the theatrics. Parked her, switched the ignition off for 2 minutes and started her back up. No lights whatsoever. Drove her around the block a couple of times, car performed like new. Battery SOC also shows 100%
I am almost certain itís the ABS sensor gone kaput. If your car is out of warranty get it done from a good FNG. It might cost around 3k for a single sensor.

Had the 70k (6.5 years) service done for Octavia from a trusted independent garage. This is the first time I am doing the regular service outside Skoda. Though I have been happy with Skoda service in Bangalore, I always felt the OEM service centers do work more like a tick in the box against their checklist. And recently with many Skoda vehicles coming on road and the crowd at service centers I was not confident whether the service guys really get good time to take care of each car.
Now that the car is running on Stage 1 and the warranty is over, I wanted to give some premium service. Overall very happy with the service and this time the bill was 1/3rd lesser than regular service at Skoda. Went for Meguin 5W-30 engine oil and the car definitely feels much more smoother. Cant wait to take it on highways.

Guys the battery for my 1.8 TSi facelift has gone kaput after almost 4.5 years. I want to replace with an Exide but i can't figure out what specs the original battery has. It surprisingly has no sticker, only some numbers. Pics attached:

Must be a standard DIN60 Exide Spain battery. Replace with a similar one made by Exide India for ~8K after exchange, no issues.

Skoda will push for a 12K VARTA. Are you still under warranty?

Tbf the cost calculator on their website showed around 8.2k and 8.5k including service charges.

I have got Exide Mileage 65 LH installed now and its all good .
