nice Pics

what do you think of the octavia vrs on a whole. How does it compare to the civic in size, boot back seat leg room etc

Depending on my next insurance quote depends if i keep the typr r or get rid and the octavia is close to the top of my list.

Is it still 4wd

Hi Phil
Love it
Ride is on a different planet to the basic Civic suspension set up
Great performance, build quality is far better than the Civic
Massive boot
Rear leg room is very good
I'm a very happy Bunny!!

BTW..The vRs has never been 4WD
Youre perhaps thinking of the 'Scout'

Forgot to ask, did you apply the sealant by hand or with a machine?? The finish looks amazing

By hand. Very little buffing required.
It basically dries on the car with no hazing.
I just wipe over the car with a MF Cloth..
Takes around 10 mins to do the whole car ...twice
