Thought I'd be scene and throw a few pics of the latest addition to the fleet, a tidy mk1 octy (v)RS. A very well specced car, I'm told its an original Irish car. Came with rare factory fitted xenon lights, climate control, reversing sensors all in addition to the usual RS refinements of 312mm brakes, vented 256mm rears, as well as the 180bhp 1.8t stove. Half leather seats, armrest and a Bluetooth equipped radio finish off the interior nicely, while the exterior has the 17" version of the RS spider alloy wheels. It's sitting on -40mm (approx) shocks and springs, very well matched to the car, with an s3 upper and lower strut brace to tighten up things nicely.

I'm not gonna go too mad spending on this, but a rear arb and a decent Joe map are in the pipeline, funds being the deciding factor on when..

All opinions welcome, except those of Tadgh, I know how much you 'love' Octavias..

The difference is day and night with a map from JOE. A mate recently had his Silver VRS done and although only small power increase, there was a massive increase in torque and its very quick now.

A set of center caps and some proper plates and she'll be laughin'
Nice car.

Travelled a fair few miles in this bus, I have to say it changed my mind on the vrs' altogether, they got some nice additions that were only seen on the anni's, perforated leather steering wheel, dark grey headliner to name a couple, plus this thing pulls seriously well, it has me looking for issues with my own 1.8t!! That run back to the ferry with the rs and the mos box would have been very embarrassing if I were following in the gti, remap is now a must!!

Best of luck with it ****!

Centre caps have been sorted, and those plates are Trevors finest non German plates, ever since I've seem German font plates on a SantaFe, I've gone off them,


After its once over at Daltons, I've got one or two little things on the list to sort out, which should make it pull even better.
