Actually, yes.  But then you're a discerning lot and appreciate style.  Apart from pvr who has a sporty beetle of course.

Nice one - my brother in law got one. Good looking cars actually.

Mark 3?  In Europe by any chance?  Skoda UK not letting any out until mid-Sept. >:(

Yep - Europe. You could have seen it a few weeks back when they were here  :))

Still wrapped in plastic.  Taking delivery next weekend.

Are you allowed to take delivery then assuming it has the cheat software on it being the 2.0?

Car looking great by the way.

They 'abandoned' it there, and it has the 2.0L EA288 engine, not the EA188/9 series which has the....er.....modification.
