    Now, while Blue is in hospital aka my mum's garage, waiting for surgery following a water-pump hence cambelt failure... :( I am tooling about in one of Mr Hertz's finest rental offerings... a Skoda Rapid (sic). It's a pretty fine beast I have to say.. though 6000m and it is showing some...

    Hi, My name is Rad . Few months ago bought an Alfa Romeo 159 2.4 JTDM and, apart from some initial corrections, I'm loving the experience! Recently went to AHM for EGR+DPF+F1 Remap job. Hoping to exchange some useful information with the members of this great forum. Cheers

    yesterday, for whimsical reasons, i looked at used Skodas on PH. You would assume that an experienced car dealer could write an advert, right? I'd like to know what the bod that wrote this ad was smoking: "Blue, clock, five seats, hatchback, taxed, one owner..." Clock? Clock as the second...

    All 1.6 diesels, what would you have? I've got used to my boot in the 159 so the Octavia is probably the best like-for-like, but the Mazda 3 has better looks, and the C4 isn't to be dismissed..
  7. Alfa MiTo
    Well as the title says, took our QV in today for a list of faults to be looked at and as a courtesy car for 3 days we got a bloody Skoda Roomster!!! I REALLY HATE this car! Being without our 6 month old 4500m car due to a list of 15 or so things is bad enough but to give us a Roomster as a...

  9. General Motoring Discussion
    Thought I would share as I'm still smiling and the missus doesn't understand. Today I was lucky enough to be invited to a Brand Awareness day at Millbrook proving ground hosted by Skoda. We all got a hot lap on a shortish tarmac stage with Skoda's italian rally driver chap, in their actual...

  11. General Motoring Discussion
    Hi all, Since I spend more time on AlfaOwner than Briskoda (Skoda forum) I'd thought I'd mention after my incident Istripped certain parts of my '96 1.3 Felicia Lxi. Whilst I don't expect buyers, if you know someone who has one & wants parts, let me know. I have a thermostat unit, windscreen...

  14. General Motoring Discussion
    Have been reading about the new Octavia which is out in January-new engines and styling tweeks etc except for the Scout 4x4 and the VRS versions which will remain the same as the present model.I have never seen that before 90% of the models get upgraded and the remaining models are left alone?.

    Having had a Seat Leon hire car last week..... was interesting to get a Skoda Octavia this week. Similar, yet different! Compared to the Leon, it had an older 1.9 engine; less poky, but also less peaky! Impressions...

    I've just come back from 5 days in Ireland, lovely it was too. While I was there I had a Skoda Octavia TDI hire car. It was an automatic, so it was fine for cruising around The Ring of Kerry and taking in the scenery with Mrs Corbo riding shotgun. I have never driven a Skoda before and while...
