    Skoda fabia VRS

    Hi guys just wondering what peoples opinions on these are?

    im really thinking about one in the summer, how tuneable are they?

    Superb! ( no skoda pun intended )

    I nearly bought one a year or so ago but decided I couldn't justify a new one. The one I drove was remaped by the dealer to 180bhp (which can be had for around £500) and it absolutely flew. Enough torque to pull a house down.

    Ross (Techie) had a lovely black one tuned to over 200bhp, Audi TT rims etc, and being a picture slag - hopefully he will post a couple of shots of it.

    Cracking wee cars. I've driven a bog-basic 65hp Fabia SDi, and even it goes pretty well, despite lacking a turbo.

    the reason im now thinking of 1 is that i drove my mates company golf estate 2nite which has the 130 engine in so i believe thats the same one thats in the fabia?

    could one of these be faster than a gsi turbo cheaply?

    r they 6 speed aswell?

    6 Speed, same as Golfs yeah.

    I imagine in gear times would be similar to a GSi with a few tweaks. Plenty fast enough anyway.

    they're the mutts nutts mate... and pic is a perfect example.
    my only grip is they dont come as a 3dr.

    Fifth gear did a shoot out between a mini cooper and a fabia VRs... guess which one won...

    ... yep you've guessed it... the VRs

    The link is below but you have to pay to view the shoot out
