Took custody of the new dadwagon last week and really enjoying it so far! It was a bloody long wait since I placed the order in October last year at 201 days.

Being a 245 it has a few extras over the standard VRS.

Bigger brakes and the VAQ limited slip diff make a great difference over my old MK2.

Power delivery is much improved with 45 bhp more than I'm used too, and much better throttle response.

All the chrome being eliminated makes it much closer to my taste too.

Lovely motor. I’ve been chasing one of these for ages and Skoda doesn’t want to sell me one

The residuals seem to be dropping out the arse of the used ones. Already seen one for 21k!

I'd say order books will be open for them again soon though or they'll be replaced with something else.

Just noticing this now. Looks great! Mine is built and awaiting delivery 4 weeks from now.

The estate just looks the business!

You will have to tell me all about the toys on it.

There are 25 for sale on AutoTrader...... almost new
I wanted a green dsg estate one with a few extras. To be honest the way Skoda in England have acted so far doesn’t give me great faith in aftercare if something goes wrong. Pity though I really think they’re a lovely motor.

TBH I'm still finding everything haha! The MIB2 headunit's menus are extensive and Android Audio is nice, its just a shame its a cabled option only!

Lovely, nice to have better brakes and a diff too :grinning:
They both make a HUGE difference over the MK2FL... Turn in is much better and braking confidence is huge :grinning:

Spotted you this evening around 17.30 round the back of RBAI
Ah yea, was called out of work to head up to casualty in Childrens with the wee man as hes' not well at all. So sorry If i didnt see you!!

Few wee silly bits ordered as its a lease what I can do is limited.

Boot liner to protect the boot from all the shieeeeete that will get carted around in it
PPF Bumper protector to minimise the scratches on the "loading area"

LED Indicators ,Reverse and interior lights will be ordered as well. Everything else is LED so seems weird that these are not!

Really liking it so far, certainly seems alot livlier than the 245PS claim would have you believe. I know there have beem a few reports of these touching 260+ in Germany and other places.

Some boring AF updates.... but still happy with them!

Boot liner fitted, already has a spillage so very happy its fully water proof. Still thinking of adding a rubber liber too.
Clear Paint Protection fitted too. Nice easy wee job.

I've added some LED side repeaters too, no videos but they're much more visible and suit the lights better!

I've treated it to a couple of coat of Fusso coat99.
Good old RainX on the windows an Anachem Ultragloss on the tires.

I went to see @[email protected] at the weekend and fitted a shorter length front plate to suit the front bumper with some @Boabybooster approved Metro fonts.

Really smart looking car. Where did you get the boot liner? I need one for the golf.
