Another Mk1 vRS Octavia

4 posts in this topic

I had no intention of buying another car as I was very happy with the black vRS but this local example came up in Rally Red with a genuine 47k and I couldn’t refuse. My third vRS Mk1 in 9 months!

It was bought new in Howard Abrahams in Lurgan 15 years ago. I bought it of the second owner, an older gentleman who had 4 years who basically did not drive it.

I gave it a light detail today, replaced the centre boot badge and wheel centre caps.

I have it booked into have the rear spoiler ( common fading issue) and the front bumper redone due to a few kerb scrapes. Its also booked to go in for a full service including the oil pick up pipe.

Future plans are a wheel refurb and tidy things as I go.

Can't beat a red Octy! Mint dude, looks almost as nice as mine :P

 

BTW the spoiler may respond to being cut and polished (mine did) although the rest of the paintwork won't.

Who knows we might have a briskoda meet this year, be good to get them side by side for a photo.

Did give it a pass with the DA and it came up well, might tell the painter to leave it for now. Kinda worried it will stand out being painted compared to the rest of the paint.
