      May be a CABG or Angio

      But Skoda has also worked on the GB to ensure that the failure rate is less. Added what I understand is that the GB fails predominantly in start-stop city traffic and that by using the Parking mode more effectively this can be bettered.

      Thanks KRRaj.. Surely will get her for the next meet.

      More planned for her
      1. PPF for the critical areas
      2. VCDS cable to enable few more options (like needed sweep)
      3. Ceramic coating
      4. Setting up the 7D mats that I got with the car

      I had test driven the Octavia multiple times and that too at different conditions before getting mine. All these hold good even for this.

      1. B2B traffic is the worst part - thanks to the 2/3 wheel M****s. They almost keep kissing the car. But can't do much. In spite of this, it is easy to manoeuvre the car thanks to AT and 7 speed DSG.
      2. Open stretch, press the pedal instant power to the wheels and you never know it has hit 3 digit speed and never a realisation of the gear shift. I got a chance to drive in Chennai Bypass between Ambatur and Avadi with the car fully loaded with 5 adults.
      3. Steering is light and good for city conditions and weighs up really well at NH speed levels.
      4. Break - the best part. I simply love it. It just stops.. Only condition that when you panic break you will have to really careful that you don't get rear ended by the typical M****s who always drive with the impression that the person driving his vehicle ahead of you will always be on the move without any issue and that they can tail him as though he is the Pole Star pointing to the North and helping them navigate the city of unknown!!!!
      5. Ride and handling it has been spoken at length in all places.


      I always say the Octavia and Superb are poor man's Audi and I stand by it.

      What I don't like

      1. Too much of electronics
      2. Customisation (read as ICE in my case) not possible as anyone will not want to screw up the warranty

      ROTFL! Can undertand the feeling well.

      When you get to do that Bangalore drive later, this car should feel completely at home on the long stretches. Its a real mile muncher and one can keep wafting along at good speeds without breaking sweat. Its a very clever choice indeed. Well done.
