I always thought the Octavia was Skoda's (owned by VW) version of the Passat.

cant say i've looked at my speedo when bolting backwards! might get some one to look next time!

i know my sat nav tells me i pull 1.0G on acceleration and most corners about 0.75G (but im a wimp) i'm a str8 lines person!

We can't buy Skodas here anyway, but if I livedin Europe I might go for it. Octavia's a lot nicer than a Jetta anyhow, with same engine and all.

I said I might go for it. It is a lot cheaper too. If money were no object and it was GTI vs. Octavia, I'd go with the GTI. But if it was Jetta 2.0T (non-GLI) vs. Octavia with the 2.0T I'd definitely go with the Octavia.

...hah. my fast doesnt like going backwards. he likes being smashed back in his seat with foward acceleration! not fly through the windshield going backwards!! plus my fast doesnt really have a neck... so it would be a little difficult for him to drive backwards. haha

My fast is lucky he has a tail, otherwise he would have rolled off my dash many times.
