I traded the Superb a couple of weeks back, as I'd spied an Octavia 3 RS TDi wagon that would be a better stable-mate for the Fabia.




Lovely colour!

New shopping basket arrival
I thought the 17 inch wheels and 215/40's were a bit of overkill but after driving it back to New Plymouth from Hamilton I am liking them very much

Looks very sharp Brian!  Decent drive back home - Your thoughts so far?

Thanks; quite surprised, it exceeded my expectations, nice 'planted' feel and for 999cc had more performance than I ever expected.

They're quite surprising - I spent a day in a 1.2 a few weeks back and thought I'd hate it after the full-fat diesels.  Far from it though, I was grinning like a mad man after a few minutes and was almost sad to have to hand it back.

Has the little triple got that three cylinder burble?

Yes, the sound is a bit 'warbley'
I can endorse the grin factor, very nice feel

I got myself a new ride.  :)
I'm super impressed with how good these are to drive. I've only had it for a few days, but taking it for a road trip this weekend.

It's a 2014 Octavia RS 2.0 TSI DSG. It's only done about 55,000km

Anyone else got something similar on here?

yep got a white one in manual :)
they awesome cars and with some mods they really shine. First thing though is get a stiffer rear sway bar. car will handle alot better around bends and will feel more like a hatch than a wagon.

Where did you go to get that stiffer sway bar?
Do you remember what it cost?

i purchased directly from 034 Motorsport. i think from memory it was $350 or something years ago during their black friday sale. you can wait for a sale or you can buy from alittletuningco which are NZ based and offers afterpay.
