Great car the VRS - just a pity it looks so gawd aweful :(

Looks like it has been designed by Noddy! Great value though, if you can get past the looks......

Son has the brilliant 1.4TSi engine in his Scirocco, though 'only' 160bhp. [still supercharged and turbo at that]

Ahhh...lets just wait for the 'not as good as the original Fabia VFS' debate to start!!

Being the owner of an original VRS, which ive run from new on an '04, I will naturally say......nice price, but not as good or nice a car as the original Fabia VRS...!!!!!!

Seriously, this looks very nice but I really do love my MK1 Furby, still, after all these years.

Good price for what it is, much cheaper than the equivalent Ibiza/ A1/ Polo, shame about the looks though!
#7
I understand the problem is more with the Gearbox (or lack a gear stick) rather than the looks !!

Not sure if I am missing something but you can change gear on the the semi-auto DSG with either gearstick or paddles on the VRS? Or do you just mean you would prefer a straight up manual box?
#9
Really good car, and very cute too.
#10
I test drove one and found it somewhat dull, which was a real shame given the specs which are great.
Too many electronics for my liking, no drama or excitement but nether-less a quick and safe car which anyone could drive.

What are the chances of people just sticking to whether this is a good price for a Fabia VRS and not wandering off onto the same old topics that we get every single time a Skoda deal gets posted?

It really doesn't serve any useful purpose other than drawing attention to idiots on both sides of the argument.

Skoda's are now actually really reliable and well made having been taken over my VW but the stigma will stay for some years to come.

No, they need to take the badge off and the entire body, and replace it with something that looks nice. Then it would sell like hot cakes.

QUOTE 'Not sure if I am missing something but you can change gear on the the semi-auto DSG with either gearstick or paddles on the VRS? Or do you just mean you would prefer a straight up manual box?'

From the reviews I have read, the DSG paddles just dont cut it.....the gearbox 'brain' meddles just too much. I also have read how good the 'flappy paddles' are in other VW Groups cars but it seems on the fabia it just dosent 'fit'. In a 'pocket rocket' you want maximum control and maximum driver involvement - it seems the paddles disconnect you from that experience. I must say though, I have not driven this.........im too loyal to my MK1..........

Let me know when the Skoda Labia is released - that will suit some of the commenters down to the ground!

How are these round the ring?

A bit soft for the Ring, the sporty Clios are much better on the track (bar the gearbox, only time I'd prefer a dual clutch shifter) but I'd much rather the Fabia and its more accessible power for day to day to driving aside from the DSG box which I'm not keen on for normal driving. I don't like autos anyway but the DSG boxes seem a real headache if any of its numerous complex parts go wrong otherwise I'd be tempted to go for the estate model (currently have an Octavia VRS estate) as this is a superb price and none of the rival hot hatches are available as estates.

Yeah my MK6 golf has this, keeps cans of drink nice and cold.
#33
If you bought one in that vile green you'd have people keep asking you if you won it in a competition.

Come to think of it with looks like that you'll probably be getting Specsavers business cards left under the wipers whenever you park it ...

Skoda's do sell like hot cakes now they are 99% Volkswagen parts. That's why the Octavia VRs hs won best car of the year awards.......they must be doing something right.....

DSG is revolutionary. It's semi-automatic.

I'm ordering my new VW with it. It's so good, even the latest Ferrari now uses it for seamless shifting.

Of course, the flappy paddles on a Skoda will be just as good as the one on a £250k Ferrari...

It says £16265 on the site, am I missing something?
