That’s put me off the car completely now.

If I owned one. I’d probably get it crushed now.

So we're buying one of these to replace my Octavia RS, screenshots attached.

Just have to do the haggle dance tomorrow with the dealership.

I did load up on the options, was disappointed slightly that the upgraded sound system as well as a panoramic roof are not available on Irish cars but it is what it is.


Comparing PCP to HP at the list price with a €6k deposit I will be going HP €460/month over 5 years compared to €409/month for 3 years with the notorious balloon payment.


Obviously I hope to bring this down by some euros tomorrow. I'll let ye know how I get on.

Why not the 1.5TSI? I think you'll find the 110bhp insufficient in the Octavia, especially coming from a VRS (Diesel I presume? )

It'll add 3k or 50 euro a month but it's much more suited to the size of the car.

If you haven't bought the car, I would have to also recommend you compare quotes with the 1.5 TSI 150bhp and see if it fits in your budget.

I have it in my Karoq and it's fantastic - a very well reviewed engine on Boards with the manual or auto (mainly in Golfs, Octavia, Ateca etc).

I'd agree. If it was me I'd go for the diesel. Seems to be very little price difference between PCP and HP, is the HP over 5 years?
Sorry just saw it was over 5 years.. What interest rate is the HP? Is 0% available on PCP?

That Blind spot isn’t worth €500, I’d sooner drop it and put the money towards the better engine.

It’s a great feature, just not worth €500

2.9% on PCP, 3.9% on HP.


I done diesel twice, and my mileage just doesn't justify it. I only put up 29,500 miles over 4 years from new on the RS.

I may go for the 1.5TSI depending on pricing. I don't really want to break the €500/month with a baby on the way.

That's fair enough with that mileage, sensible decision. The 1 litre should be perfect for small mileage like that. Are you getting dsg or manual? DSG with the acc and the electric handbrake would make a lovely car.

So deal done. Total price with change of VRT, delivery and the optional extras brought list price to just shy of €33k. Struck a deal at €31k.

Left it as the 1.0L TSI and looking at a 12-16wk delivery time frame, covid dependent.

HP @ 3.9% over 5 years working out at €455/month.

No sold her to dealer in Dungarvan for €18k cash. Hopefully the next owner will enjoy it as much as I did.

The RS are making good money these days.

I think the clever money is on the 1.0 petrols in the new model. The higher end of the range are just too expensive.
