2010 Laura TSi.. Got BHP ?
The Laura's all new 1.8-litre turbo petrol engine that is simply amazing. Astounding performance makes this the quickest sub 2.0-litre litre car.
In fact its better than much larger cars with bigger displacement and more power. Fuel efficiency is adequate but I wouldn't expect wonders from an engine tuned for sterling performance.I love the engine, but I find the gear shifts arent smooth enough or quick enough to keep up.

Santoshbhat Stunning car with a stonking engine!

Don't cross 210 kph though. Your tyres will hit their speed limit before your car reaches its speed limit. Michelin XM1 is H rated and is not for high speed cars like the Laura TSI . Your TSI deserves better shoes. V rated or higher.

xtremeshock Nice choice of ride, cheers mate. 21st May 2011
procircuit_234 nice number bro! 13th November 2010

.anshuman Awesome car, Brilliant Engine.

As mentioned here, ESP is not a part of Kit on Laura TSi here. Only L&K Diesel has ESP in India.

hvishwanathan Ya low's are on HID's. The tints are a bit dark not so much that the affect driving. Guess the lip was for around 3000. 6th August 2010
Akki_5 1. Did you convert your low beam to HIDs as well? Did you get it done at Skoda Service center?
2. Which tints have you installed? Aren't they a little too dark for comfort?
3. How much did you pay for the lip?

hvishwanathan thanks mate :) 25th May 2010
Utopian The interiors are just too good with the Stanleys. 25th May 2010
hvishwanathan Thanks man,

She runs on SPEED (Bharat petroleum)
Fogs come with yellow light bulbs which have been later upgraded to HID's
3rd April 2010
anekho Sweet car, man! She looks amazing!
Two questions:
1. What fuel does she drink? Can I use normal petrol?
2. Have you upgraded the fog's or are they stock?

BurningHeart Amazing Stanleys! Fundoo and very elegant front seats. 19th March 2010
hvishwanathan hey thanks for pointing out.. I have made the change :) 13th March 2010
megazoid A small typo. Isn't it 250Nm torque. 13th March 2010
hvishwanathan hey guys i wanted to upgrade the rims and tyres to 17". but warned by some of our very own bhpians about the harsh drive quality. so thats the reason let those remain to a 15" but changed from good year to Michelin Energy XM1. Now the drive is much smoother. 12th March 2010
planet_rocker great seats :) congrats :) 12th March 2010
kutlee those seats are awesome. tyres need upgrade. nice car. 12th March 2010
