Thanks for your input. My car runs on 15" stock antares alloys. Yes, I do have have Michelin Primacy 3ST on my list but I'm a bit inclined towards Conti's. I'm planning to go for 195/60/R15. Will this size improve ride quality?

Ride will definitely improve. But steering may feel a little heavy compared to 185 section tyres.

60,000KMS Update:

Got the car back from service today. Changed brake pads, oil and all filters. During my last service visit, A.S.S personnel have updated ECU firmware (I guess it's related to diesel-gate) following which car feels a tad bit lethargic and begs for a little more throttle input for eager pulls. I'm planning on the suspension overhaul during my next service visit. Any help in this regard will be appreciated!

Candy white 2014 Skoda Rapid Elegance comes home-20190728_113913compressed.jpg

1. As of now clocked 88,888 kms.

2. One of the injectors failed at about 70K kms mark and was replaced under warranty, thanks to the extended warranty.

3. The gear selector seems to have worn out as I feel resistance while shifting from 2nd to 3rd at times.

4. Planning to do a DIY injector cleaning using Liqui Moly Diesel Purge.

Experienced sudden power loss on the go and cluster threw up check engine and glow plug lamps.

Drove it to the service station slowly and it took about 10 days to get everything done under warranty.
