The interior looks very, very similar to my Passat, it looks like a lot of the same parts have been used.

Out of interest do you have a better pic of the lower chrome grille, or could you take one?

Very nice car btw, although very, very undertstaded - but thats another good point IMO. I thought the alloys might be a bit more special, they look more like hub caps IMO.

Having been in one, I was amazed how similar it is to the Passat. Replace the Skoda badge for a VW one and colour the dials blue, and you would be hard pushed to know the difference except for the room in the back, they are so similar.

Do you still stay with your dad mate? If so, there is no way 2 of them are fitting in that drive way!

you got a close up pic of the rear footrests??

i think a different set of wheels would really make the car maybe even something with a open spoke design but still very nice is this what baker21 is buying???

Baker21 is getting a Superb, but I dont think its the Edition 100 so it
may not have *all* the toys, but it will certainly be well spec'ed. I
would imagine he is opting for an Elegance, so he should have all the
kit listed above excluding the "Edition 100" bits.

More pics on they way as soon as I can get the time!

They have one of those in my local Skoda.. I was looking at it when I was picking my car up from its service. It is a really nice and impressive car. The only Skodas I have been impressed with are the VRS ones and that one. All the lower spec skodas are absolutely awful in terms of interior quality. The plastics look so cheap it is unbelievable.. all cheap shiney plastic that I was scared I was going to break as it was so thin. I would say the lower spec skodas are no where near up to the standards of VW.. There is a lot of quality difference across the range. There is no way I would swap my 99 for this 03 plate fabia estate "classic". But as I said, your dad's is one impressive car [Y]

Yeah...and it gets better...I was tinkering with the Sat Nav.....

...what did I find?

The cars only got DSP as well!!! [:O]

Its not even listed in the spec....anywhere. The Elegance and Edition 100 should both just have Sat Nav and the Standard speaker setup.

(and just to be sure, I checked the boot....and sure enough the amp is sat in a cradle under the parcel shelf)

If they ever made a VAG top trumps game, this would have to be the winning card!

Not wanting to start anything but have you been in any VWs newer than a MKIV recently?

Fair point... but it still seems 'ok' quality. I am not saying Skodas are crap quality inside.. I am just saying there is a big difference in quality across the range of skodas. In fact, I was very impressed with the Octavia VRS interior quality with the leather etc and lots of parts which I recognised from the MKIV Golf. I was just surprised to see something of lower quality than my mum's Ford KA. But this was the most basic spec skoda possible... Still, good car.. Looked good and modern outside, excellent engine, nice drive etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm not slating the Skoda name... I would own a Skoda and I am thinking about a Fabia VRS for my next car [Y]
