I needed 7 seats, so i've just bought a Kodiaq and unfortunately my beloved Superb has to go.
The car is well known on the forum, see Damo's thread -
And my (far less comprehensive) thread -
The car has now done 65k miles - Full Main dealer Service history (last serviced December) - MOT due on 5th March, but I will be getting this done, along with 4 new tyres (Eagle F1 or equivalent)
I think that everything you need to know about the car will be listed in the above 2 threads. Alloys have some kerbing, but otherwise this is still a mint, well loved and cherished car. If I hadn't needed 7 seats I don't think I would have been letting it go.
I'm looking for £9k, but happy to listen to sensible offers.
Located in NW England (Cumbria)
Any questions feel free to ask.
Hi all. Having just had a 40k service carried out by my main dealer, I stopped off for fuel
on the way home. As I pulled off the from filling station, the car started running rough, the engine management light came on solid, but after a few seconds started flashing and shortly after the EPC light came on. It seems to be running on 2 cylinders!
I spoke to the dealer and they said it would be OK to drive in ‘limp ‘ mode. The car is now back at the dealers and I spoke to the petrol station about any fuel quality issues they may have had.
I alao noted when when nursing it back to the dealers that the little stop start unavailable icon on the speedo was flashing and there was an occasional beep from behind the dash.
The 40k service includes a plug change, could this be a dodgy plug or loose plug lead?
Alternatively, as the car appeared to be running perfectly before refuelling, with the correct fuel, could this be down to dodgy fuel or indeed water in the fuel?
Anyone else had any experience of this type of thing?
I'm new to the forum so I hope this is in the right place.
I have owned my 2006 Fabia VRS for four years now, this year I will be looking to replace it with something a little bigger and a little newer. I definitely want to stick with a Skoda - my car has been absolutely faultless - and have pretty much settled on a mk3 Octavia. My natural choice would be to go for another VRS as I love the effortless power of mine, but I am starting to find it a bit 'jiggly' and uncomfortable especially on our deteriorating roads. I have done a lot of research so I feel like I'm pretty clued up, especially concerning weight and power-to-weight differences between the VRS and standard 2.0 tdi 150 cars.
What I am looking for though is a little insider knowledge on how the two cars might stuck up against a stock mk1 VRS. For example, would a standard manual 150 feel slow compared to my car, would the VRS feel much faster? How would the comfort and road noise of each compare to my car? What about the MPG? Any info on how the three cars would stack up against each other would be greatly appreciated before I think about test drives ect in the spring.
I have just bought Skoda Favorit Rally Car:
I believe it used to be:
MBH - 82 - 07
I think it was owned by Steve Westbury then Carl Stevens.has anyone any photos or history about the car?
Also does anyone know where the VIN is stamped in to the chassis?
