Hey everyone, new member and new to Skoda. Having purchased two brand new Astra Elite's last year (one for my wife in sept and mine in Dec) and recently having a misfire issue with both cars, I have decided to act particularly as the manufacturer doesn't seem to give a toss!
So last week I have factory ordered a Superb Estate, it's the SEL Executive and I have gone for the 1.4 Tsi DSG. Mainly because I'm 34 now and not a racing driver, a dad to a 16 month old boy and travel 14 miles to work and the same distance back each day.
I have added the the following options... Quartz Grey paint with the black leather, the heated wheel with paddle shifts, the pan roof, the led light package, which in turn made me order kessy (keyless) and couldn't have it with out branded mats. Car will be with dealer early August.
So just after any feed back from other Superb drivers, especially ones with something close to what I have ordered.
Other than the Astra 66 plate I'm moving on I have owned in recent years a BMW 320 Msport Coupe (petrol) 2009, a Volvo V40 R Design Nav D3 in rebel blue (diesel 2.0) 2013, and a 2015 Volvo XC60 R Design Lux Nav D4 Auto. Ps ten years or so ago I had a Passat sport 1.8t on a W plate which I loved!
Secondly I like to have the same brand of car in the garage for my wife as what I have so thinking of changing her Astra 1.4t elite for a Rapid Spaceback SE Sport, again petrol preferred although looks like you can only get a 1.0 now on new. Her previous car was a Polo SEL 1.2 Tsi 64 reg but had to go when baby arrived, I suggested an Octavia but she isn't keen on the shape (rear of car mainly). Anyway any advise will be Great!
I decided to create this topic so that like-minded people can discuss and/or ask questions in regards to modifying an MK III Skoda Fabia. I'm assuming there are probably other topics out there, but I haven't seen any specifically for this area.
I'm going to start this off by asking is anyone aware of a good set of reasonably priced coilovers that fit the MK III Skoda Fabia? The only ones I've found are EIBACH Pro Street S Coilovers coming in at £830.75.
I really hope people use this topic to ask any questions or to discuss any queries they have with other like-minded people.
Let's get modifying!
DISCLAIMER: I recommend any modifications discussed on this topic are installed/carried out by a competent mechanic and I must make it clear that most modifications will void any warranty you may have on your SKODA.
Please advise me. I have a 2012 Octavia 1.8 TSi DSG MK2 FL Elegance, (Manufactured on 21st June 2012), with a Bolero radio 6CD unit installed with no Bluetooth.
I would like to replace it with a Bolero WITH Bluetooth, possibly a used unit from Ebay or the like. Or is it possible that mine has bluetooth but has n
The 2nd hand ones I have seen advertised, show the 4 options along the top of the screen, one of which shows "BT" unlike mine that only has 3 boxes.
I know some of you would suggest one of the lovely aftermarket, all singing all dancing head units, but " She who must be obeyed " said I'm not allowed to, and for fear of Death, or worse, much to my sorrow, I must take this route. ( I'm a very young 61 yr old who loves modern Tech. ).
Now, I know I would have to buy a microphone,unless it's already there,(I haven't checked yet), pref the correct one that fits in the light unit above my head, but will a straight head unit swap work. ?
I do not have steering wheel controls or a maxidod display, and I want to keep the car looking standard, hence the like for like swap.
I don't mind going up a model in stereos, as long as it is a Skoda one that looks like it came with the car. I don't like the option that is offered by my skoda dealer with a little screen on the dash.
Obviously, I want to keep all of the functionality that I get now, such as reversing display, AUX input, (Socket under armrest), Climate control display, etc.....
Below are pictures of the VIN plate and the radio software screen etc if it helps at all. But if there is any other info you need in able to assist me, please ask. I can extract codes from the ECU, as I have a CARISTA OBD2 Dongle and APP. If there are any you need.
Thanks to all.

I'm strongly considering buying a 2017 "Skoda Fabia 1,2 TSi 110 Ambition Combi" with DSG.
I'm wondering if anyone know if the gearbox in this model is the DQ200 model or where I can find that information. If it is the DQ200, are there still problems with it in newer 2016/2017 models?
Thanks for any information.
I'm new to the community and I've been searching around for abit trying to solve my problem but I've not seen a solution anywhere. Sorry if there is a thread about this.
So I've got a HID Conversion on my Fabia vrs 2006 the problem I'm getting is when the lights are turned off or on the sidelight setting when I brake the bulb warning light comes on. But if I put the lights on fully I don't get this issue.. none of my bulbs are out. They are all LED converted. Ive posted on the Facebook Fabia owners group and still no help. If you need any more info please let me know
