have looked into smoking the grill and headlights, still a bit undecided, don't want it looking "too modified" if you get me. plans are for big power and the more subtle the better

the thing which lets the fabia down for me is the piss poor interior, if theyd come with the same seats as the octy they'd be awesome! the octavias aren't too bad on fuel, but ou may miss the derv mpg

my mate has a black one and he just got bored of it. octavia looks like a massive car but doesn't drive like one, much more potential tuning wise too downside is every other octavia is a taxi...doesn't bother me too much tbh

Interior on the fabia is fine if you don't go in after rolling about in the mud btw.

As long as you keep on top of it it's much easier to keep clean than the white carpet in the octy.

Octy seats would be nice in it though.
