Where are all the Fabia vRS TDI's?

I haven't seen a Fabia vRS TDI on TM for ages, where are they all? I'm sure Skoda NZ sold a heap of them?

Last time I asked Skoda NZ they said they sold about 600 Mk1 Octavias and Fabias combined. So there can't be that many.

I would have guessed 70-100 Fabia vRS's?

Still got mine, albeit sitting in the garage.

DMF is on it's last legs, so until I can afford a replacement it can stay there. Still gets started and run up to temp once a month though.

It's a shame we do not have more cars like this with Tdi engines.

On trademe is one Fabia VRS

and one time I have seen a Golf IV Tdi PD with the ARL engine and the 6q gearbox
