    Default Skoda Superb 3.6 V6 4x4 Estate DSG

    My new car after selling the EP3. Going to be used as a daily and for towing the track car. Actually bought it off Jamie (son).

    Thought the plate was familiar unless you're doing some form of engine swap

    I've got the 2.0tdi variant, lovely place to be. The petrol one must be a nice drive with dsg and they come fully kitted don't they?

    It is a nice place to be Norv without a doubt.
    Not sure if it's got every option but does have a few toys.
    First thing will be to sort the exhaust to release that lovely V6 noise. Looking forward to owning it, sad to see the civic go but that's life.

    What's the mpg like on the petrol? I've always been a bit disappointed with the diesel, average around 40 with little motorway miles. It's a big heavy car though I guess.

    Ours is the same colour and L&K model, so has most the toys in it. They're a lot of car for the money.

    The v6 will sound nice and towing won't cause any issues either no doubt! When's the engine and dsg remap coming?

    Obviously not used it ourselves to see what mpg we'll get but Jamie and I took the trailer down to Stoke to pick up the track car after it had some work done. 200 mile round trip averaged about 26mpg @ 60mph 90% motorway which I thought was actually very good. Remap on engine and dsg had been done by a previous owner but we have no paperwork to prove this. It does have some grunt though even with a trailer and car on it does accelerate very well. Jamie drove it down to France 800 miles and it averaged mid to high 30,s this was with no trailer.

    That's a lot better than I imagined actually. I think on a run ours would manage 50+ given half a chance on a decent run. But it's not too bad, round town etc seems to rinse through the fuel. Sometimes we get 400 to a tank, others nearer 600. I didn't think it would vary quite so much!

    I don't think we will see much more than 250/300 to a tank. So fuel costs will only be slightly higher than the civic. Car tax on the other hand is more expensive being in the top bracket but too offset that insurance is a third less then the civic. Never really run a car with numbers in mind though, like it, buy it, run it. It is a rare car though not many were sold. 80 ish I think saloon/estate.
