  1. Another Red Octavia

    Being no stranger to Skoda ownership, it didn't surprise many when I arrived home from England with vRS number 4 to replace my Fabia. Here's the previous Skoda The Fabia was a great wee car but I just couldn't get used to the size. Something bigger was needed so the hunt was on for a newer Octavia. Then this popped up on eBay. It was petrol so after serious thought (and mainly getting talked into it by Gobsheene and veedubnoodle) I hopped on the plane and brought it home. Now, I was 99% sure I was getting an octavia so a few months earlier when a set of mk3 vrs seats showed up on eBay for fair money, I snapped them up so it wasn't long before they went in with a bit of soldering and fettling. The only bit that couldn't be fettled to fit was the rear lower base so I will be getting the original base trimmed to match. The next thing on the list was suspension. After having an A4 avant on air I wanted to return to that so after a chat with Gavin at DesignRMC I opted for an Airlift 3P system with an OEM / discreet style install. As usual, he didn't disappoint The next thing on the list was to get rid of the wheels which I am not a fan of at all Had these lying about so test fitted a couple and they fitted nicely. They are 20" Audi Q5 wheels. So sent them of for a chemical strip and a respray. When they came back, they were looking a lot smarter Edition38 was getting very close but managed to squeeze in getting the grill colour coded and the car detailed by Chris at Genuine Detailing before we set of on the 700 mile round trip. (Apologies for the long post)
