Octavia VRS Mk1

Recommended Posts

Picked this up this week a 2002 Black Magic Octavia VRS

The car has had cruise control and centre armrests already retrofitted and theyre quite handy I have to say. The bump strips have been colour coded so that will save me dressing them all the time and having runs of the product.

So far I have gave it a few runs with my DA and Merenza compound to get the car shining. Had 2 new Kumhos fitted today and the plan is to fit another 2 next month, other plans include more cleaning including the arch liners and remove the front indicators to remove Moss. I have a full set of genuine green Skoda badges but unsure whether to fit them or not as I'm coming round to the new style badges fitted. Thinking of getting the wheels refurbed in a darker colour and dechrome the grille. Also hoping to get a nicer reg for it maybe a VRS one.

Going to grease the starter as it grinds slightly on start up, a common fault on these it seems, other than that I will continue to enjoy driving it.

A few phone pics from this morning...

Class dude how you enjoying driving it?

Black looks great with graphite wheels and grill B)

Cheers fella, loving it so far great fun to drive and pulls very well.

Afraid of going too dark with the wheels, seen a few octavias with tinted headlights, window, black wheels etc and don't like the look.

I see how I get on over the winter. Have a neuspeed induction kit here no idea if theyre any good.

Looks in lovely order.

Black carpets are a nice cheap upgrade when you finally get bored of trying to keep the light grey clean lol.

They are a lovely car and still under appreciated in my opinion.

 

Cheers dude its not perfect but its great for 14 years old have been getting plenty of comments when I'm out and about,  I try to keep the standard carpets for now.
