Brand New Skoda Octavia 2.0 TSI vRS DSG [Nav], Choice Of Colours £20199 (with VED & DVLA registration fee) @ Motorpoint

Found 20th Sep 2015
Nearly £6000 (22%) saving of list price. They just say "new" but from experience they will be pre-reg.

Wide choice of colours available including "special" colours like white.

Includes navigation which is a bonus. This will be the Amundsen which isn't as good as Columbus but still does the job.

£145 tax on collection. They also try and get you to pay £99 for a pre-delivery inspection (valet, printed HPI certificate and some inspection) but this is optional and when I bought a car from them a few months ago they did everything in the PDI anyway. In fact it's new so none of these things apply

They will deliver to any Motorpoint for you for £99. They seem to be scattered around the country, I haven't checked them all but one was in Peterborough and one in Chingford.

Let the comments begin, prizes available! **
* "Better to lease" - 10 points (true if you like to change cars often)
* Rather get a BMW - 20 points (what are you doing here, go get one). Extra 10 points if you add "used"
* Rather get an Audi/VW - 50 points (you know they're the same car right) Extra 10 points if you add "used"
* "Wouldn't be seen dead in one" - 8 points
* "Not the 220" - 14 points (well observed)
* "Nice Deal" - 1 point

** points cannot be converted to cash. Points have no value.

EDIT: Just spoke to Motorpoint, these are unregistered cars from Cyprus.so there is a £55 DVLA registration fee plus the £145 VED. They have told me the warranty still applies but I would advise to double-check with Skoda that this is case and get it in writing.

How many points for "Nice deal" :¬}
Also need to add the DVLA registration fee of £55 and, as you say, £145 for VED. So title needs amending to say £20,199.

Voted hot. Ta OP.
davewave

looks good or SKODA OCTAVIA 1.6 TDI CR S 5dr for £11,300


The one OP has posted is better as the link works.
90% Golf GTI with a bigger boot thrown in! Great car.
Having to look at the green chicken badge every day would kill me...
Would rather have an Alfa.

​why not Audi S3? actually nearly a porsche, lambo, bentley or bugatti - just with a bigger boot...
Recently, in the newer Skoda models starting with the Superb Skoda has (VW group directive?) made the steering softer and generally less accurate. This not comparative to the GTI in the way the old vRS models were, this is a softer, less dynamic car.

A swift car that remains composed and controllable at speed, the smart money in the vRS club has always been on the estate though.

​In that case, please go and get one. One less misguided brand snob won't be missed.

Thanks. I thought they were pre-reg so the registration fee would be paid by Motorpoint but I just spoke to them on the chat and these are brand new, unregistered cars imported from Cyprus. They told me there's no issue with warranty but I would confirm with Skoda in writing beforehand just in case.

Warranty shouldnt be a problem. I bought a Clio 182 from the back in 04, a brand new 182 was cheaper than a used year old 172.

The clio developed a few faults in the first 6 months (had it in the garage twice for warranty work) but the local Renault dealer didnt care the car was in import from motorpoint. If I remember correctly I was told at the time that it was from Cyprus as well.
Better getting from the likes of drive the deal for a UK car. Imports will attract massively higher insurance premiums.

1, because its not got 4wd or 280bhp and 2 because the rest are not built on the same floorpan as the Octavia and Golf share!

You could have said Lean FR tho....

Because this is the same engine/gearbox as the GTi, where as the last time I checked Porsche/lambo/bently and Bugatti don't use the 2.0tfsi

Having owned an estate I can honestly say that there isn't much difference in the storage, Yes obviously you can get taller items in an estate but the boot on the hatch is bloody huge!
As these are Automatics will they have steering paddle shift and has anyone got one yet?

They're semi-automatics and have got the paddle shifts. You can also change gear with the DSG lever.
Def check with insurance

Classed as a grey market import, which *could* affect premiums and resale value if you didn't intend to keep for ages
had the two previous octavia vrs models very good cars and felt well built
I had the original vRS in yellow, a real wolf in sheeps clothing, I then had a couple of the new shape models, a diesel and a petrol. I have now moved to BMW, not due to quality or street credibility, purely because the VW group servicing costs got out of hand. I now buy a new car and take the £500.00 service pack, 5 years or 50,000 miles. The Škoda is a very good car, however do take other costs into consideration.
Not voting but if they are from cyprus does it not mean they will be classed as imported and hence the insurance will be limited by insurance providers who will charge 300/500 more than uk spec cars
Bought 2, one for now and one to keep and sell later on.

That's how they extract many hundreds extra from fools who only care how 'cool' their car is! This is HUKD and this is a deal.

You must love dealer service departments!
Does this include door signs, no smoking stickers, a taxi roof light and a doner kebab air freshener or are they extra.

I have one and it is a great car for the money, I would honestly recommend to anyone.

however, the deal for an import isnt that good - i bought a factory order from a uk (manchester) based brokers that was sourced via a main dealer for less than this - in fact they are still offering the car for a good price

Because what he said makes sense, especially having driven both the cars. What you are saying is just plain stupid. An S3 is dynamically dull, understeers and is nowhere near a porsche, lambo or buggati in build, ride, handling, looks or ownership costs.

But then badge snobs like you wont understand common sense. Oh wait, you must be comparing the Skoda to that Polish masterpiece of a car. Now what was that called......... X)

Good price but I wouldn't touch motor point with a barge pole. Someone I worked with bought a jag, had to have some work done at a dealer, recall I think, when they checked the vin number it turned out the car had been written off for flood damage
It would be better to lease, however for an outright buy I'd much rather get a BMW. Even a used Audi or a VW would be a better buy. To be honest, I wouldn't be seen dead in a Skoda, especially not this one it's not even the 220. But for those in the market for one, I guess it's a nice deal.
Drove a 1.6 petrol version last year. Was a nice car but the ride was hard, especially considering it's a family car.

Would buy.
royal london hospital use these as hems cars. ignore the badge and it's a great motor for the price. unfortunately my days for having a car like this is over.
Back in the old days, they used to say "Why do Skodas have rear window heater? To keep your hands warm while pushing it". I've never driven one after passing my driving test. This maybe a good chance!

I have an S3 and your statement must rank of one of the most idiotic ever. If you think the s3 is dull then you should see a doctor. It clearly shows you have never driven a new one and have just read a few clueless magazine hack reviews that have tested it on a track, even though 99.999999999% will never been driven on a track.

As for the comparison with porsche, lambo or buggati another daft statement as they cost a huge amount more and are all owned by the VW group anyway.

That's good news, however when I changed it was not an option. Not knocking Škoda but the 3.0d in my BMW is probably the nicest engine I have had in a car, I include the engine in my M235i in that appraisal, I did have one vRS driver stupid enough to try it off the lights onto the M66 from the M62, I think he realised his mistake when he saw the twin exhausts on the 235i dissapearing into the distance.
Its not a Lamborghini a Bentley an Audi a Volkwagon or even a Seat.Its a Skoda,it says so on the tin.Just spend the rest of your life telling everyone its the same as...You don't get Audi drivers telling everyone their car is same as Skoda.

I think you will find that it is. Same engine and gearbox.
