CMS in Derby, they aren't perfect but the best I could find.

R32 wheel isn't in yet as I'm sorting a vinyl overlay for the airbag badge.

Leather armrest lid is in one of the pics, I just forgot to mention it. [:I]

awesome Eddy.

I am sure a few people are surprised by your skoda. You must be glad of the AWD with winter on it's way too.

I love the RE's, they look great, would love those for my wagon too.

Hope your able to get the rear ARB issue resolved too.

I had 2 new tyres fitted on Saturday and the fitters couldn't stop talking to me about it, they loved it. They also came out with the classic comment about how much they've come on since the old Skoda's.

Very tasty Eddy, subtle and smart - is it a 4x4 or an RS?

Thanks. It's a 4x4, but has a vRS front bumper.

Once you have changed the steering wheel you will have sorted all the things that put me off buying an Octavia! The steering wheel really does feel cheap!

I hate the steering wheel and handbrake lever, there's just no need for them to be plastic. Hopefully not too long until they're both replaced with R32 items though! [:D]

Ah Hah! My ideal motor! Something big enough to get the kids in, 4x4 for skiing/rallying with power and handling too!!!![:D][:D]

I've heard you can get some good power from the 4x4 200+ easily...?

are you using the OEM exhaust Eddy [?] (can't remember). I assume this could be quite restrictive for your other engine mods [?]. If so, what option do you have as a replacement, i assume there is not much out there for your model, would it have to be custom, as I assume the vrs estate aftermarket options would not fit.
