    A New Chapter - Skoda Singapore

    VW Singapore plots Skoda comeback Volkswagen-owned Czech brand Skoda is making a comeback, yet again. But this time, it is parent group Volkswagen which will do its own importing and retailing here. Volkswagen Group Singapore - the manufacturer-owned importer and retailer of Volkswagen vehicles here - has registered a new company for this purpose. According to the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, Skoda Centre Singapore was registered last month and will be operating out of 247 Alexandra Road, which is the same address as the VW showroom. The Straits Times understands renovations are being carried out at the facility and that Skoda Centre Singapore will start operations in the first quarter of next year. Volkswagen Group Singapore was not available for comment, but it is understood that a meaningful price differential will be in place to re-launch the Czech brand here. Previously, Skoda cars - which are based on Volkswagens - were the same price or even costlier than equivalent VW models. In other markets, Skodas are cheaper. The brand was last represented by Harvest Automobiles, part of businessman Peter Kwee's now dormant motor group of companies. Harvest Automobiles went bust in 2013 - the third Skoda agency to have failed in Singapore. The Straits Times understands Vertex Automobiles, the dealer for Chinese automobile brand Chery that is owned by egg trader Lian Fong, had made a pitch for the Skoda franchise. But it has since landed Seat, a Spanish brand also owned by Volkswagen Group. Skoda had also been courting Trans Eurokars, a multi-franchise group owned by businessman Karsono Kwee. Among its brands are Rolls-Royce, Porsche, Mini and Mazda. The best year for the Skoda brand here was 2010, when it sold 105 cars. That is less than 4 per cent of Volkswagen sales last year. Will the brand have better success under Volkswagen? Nanyang Business School's Adjunct Associate Professor Zafar Momin, previously an automotive expert with the Boston Consulting Group, said: "Skoda may be able to make a comeback in Singapore if priced and promoted properly. It needs to be very competitive with its Korean competitors in terms of pricing, as it could provide solid, competitive products targeted at value segments of the markets. "With VW Singapore now doing it themselves, it has a better chance than before. Having said that, I wonder what "comeback" really means in a small crowded Singapore car market which has small volumes for many non-mainstream brands. Would it really be worth the effort and to what extent would it cannibalise VW products?" When contacted back in 2014 - when Harvest Automobiles relinquished the business - Volkswagen Group Singapore said it had no plans to take over the Skoda retail business here. It has, however, taken over the maintenance and warranty of Skodas here. There are about 400 Skoda cars in Singapore today. As a onwer of both Skoda and VW model, I can attest that Skoda is indeed better, in almost every aspect, than VW. I can wait to welcome it back to Singapore!! Here are some interesting models in current Skoda lineup, that I hope can be made available to local motorist when sales start next year. Superb Superb Combi Kodiaq

    Octavia RS245

    Prologue Relentless pursuit of excellence. According to many reviews, Lexus is the final word in motoring. Hold. My. Beer. There is nothing wrong with a V6, 310 horses of Japanese finest. The fault lies with the user. The car is motoring perfection but the driver wasn’t looking for perfection. The driver is looking for soul. A car that makes you look forward to walking down to the car park and go somewhere even when you don’t have to. The GS350 time is up. After 6 excellent years or so. I need a new car.

    SKODA Octavia vRS Combi Mk II

    I have always wanted a Volkswagen. Specifically the GTi. It was the ultimate sleeper car that was designed to smoke clueless drivers. And then, the GTi grew up, became famous and now everybody knows about it. Then came along SKODA. Specifically the Octavia vRS. It was the GTi Mark I all over again. I had to get myself one and when the opportunity came knocking or rather I went to knock on the opportunity, I got myself a Combi vRS. Finally. 5,000 miles later, I am enjoying my daily 70km commute. The amount of kit SKODA threw into the car was tremendous. I am only missing the kitchen sink but that will fit easily into the boot if I so desire. 16 Speakers built-in Columbus system with auxiliary input and SD card reader, even 无言的结局 sounds like a happy song. GPS, active headlights, driver's multi-display, rain sensors, auto headlights comes as standard. Heck, it even closes the windows by itself when it rains. Now, if it would only bring me the slippers, I will scrap my dog. The built is solid and functional, like a piece of industrial equipment. So much so that the engine note sounds abit agricultural at times but maybe it is just me and my imagination. 197 horsies pull away from most mortal traffic at will. SSS becomes Smell Smoke Soon! Consumption is pretty decent at 11km per litre, then again this could be due to the fact that I hardly have the chance to push the car hard in Singapore. Strange things power can do a regular guy's mind. Genting was conquered in the first week of ownership. I planted a flag at the carpark and was about to declare our nation's sovereignty over the hill but the attendent chased me away. Maybe I shoud try Cameron next. Maybe they'll be nicer about it. Nonetheless, the valet was mightily impressed with the vRS despite not having a clue about what it was. "Skoda?" he pondered, wounded by the fact that he knows nothing about this one car and his reputation as a veteran parker just got pwned. "Very nice, like BMW," he finally concluded, to save himself from further humiliation I guess. Damm, I should have bought a BMW, then it will just be like the SKODA. Last month, I received a letter from Harvest Motor. They actually increased my warranty to 5years/ 150,000km, whichever comes first. Normally, I like to come together but I am not writing back to them just because of my personal preference. It was pretty surprising given the car was registered in October. This is what they said -> SKODA.pdf So that is the story of my vRS so far. I am looking forward to my first servicing and see how Harvest Motor handles the one task that most dealers screw up.

  13. Hi Guys. HELP !!!! My Octy A4's antenna is crumbling... The rubber/plastic moulding that encases the base of the antenna has hardened and cracked. Now bits and pieces have fallen off. I tried to unscrew it and hopefully have it replaced by some cheapo 3rd party type. But after unscrewing fully, I realised that there is a ball knob at the base that prevents the antenna mast fully coming out from the mounting on the car roof. Sent my car in to Servo and asked for the replacement. But was told that it cannot be removed and must be sawed off at the screw thread part before it can be replaced with a 3rd party one. But reception might be poor. So now my antenna has all the rubber bits fallen off and it is thin and looks like a metal spring.... Hoping that you guys here can have some idea on what I can do..... Help ???

    Octavia 1.4 tsi

    Hi all Anyone here knows the pricing for the latest model 1.4tsi?
  17. Hi guys! I'm trying to see if I can get hold of this part cheaper thru other means (CA is asking for $200+ for it ) But I don't have the part number and CA do not want to tell me what's the part number. Wondering if any of you guys with the cup holder can take a pic for me and post it here so that I can send it to some folks in the UK to let them know what I am talking about Your efforts would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  18. Skoda has a new concept car out called the Skoda MissionL. This new car basically previews future Skoda design and it also shows us what the next Skoda Octavia will look like. According to Skoda the MissionL is a 5 door hatchback like the Octavia, is almost production ready and initial markets will be Europe and China. It looks like a typical Volkswagen group car to me. If you put on a VW or an Audi badge on it it would certainly be at home as one of those brands. The VW DNA simply shines through especially those clean styling and very distinct shoulder line. You get a fluted bonnet and a vertical grille to differentiate it as a Skoda from one of those People's Car. Badge it as a 'Jetta' and people will buy it. That statement is especially true over here in this region, which is why no one buys Skoda and everyone running for a Passat, Jetta or a Polo instead of a Fabia, Octavia or a Superb no matter how good of a value they are. Blame it on the COE and other taxes as people aren't going to plonk down a wad of dollars for a car with no image especially since its going to cost a bomb with those taxes and whatnots. In short the Skoda MissionL is one of those cars that may be a great drive but it going to have a tough time finding people to drive it if it goes on sale around these parts of the world. Anyone out there willing to give a decent Czech car a chance? But don't count on me buying one as my sights aren't on any of the VW group cars at the moment.
  19. Hi all, I have currently in my possession an RNS510 unit from Skoda. It is a 1Z0 unit and its basically the exact same unit as the Columbus system on the Superb IIs and new Octavia VRS except that it seems to be specifically for the Octavia A5. It has a harddisk (20gb? or 30gb?....cant rem) with an SD card slot, DVD playback capability, GPS (antenna inc.) etc etc. It cannot be used on a Superb II so was thinking if there are any bros out there driving an A5 who want to try installing this in their car, I can sell it to you cheaply. No strings attached. We can try the installation first and you can choose not to take the unit if it does not work. PM me if anyone is interested yeah? Cheers all!

    New entry level Skoda Octavia

    VW Jetta's distance cousin, the Octavia, has received new engine and transmission options for 2010. In particular, both the liftback and estate versions are now offered with a new, downsized 1.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder TSI gasoline engine with direct-injection. This is the same powerplant that is expected to be fitted to the VW Polo later this year. The 1.2-liter TSI produces 105 horsepower and can be matted to either a six-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG dual clutch transmission. However, expect Singapore's version (if Harvest Automobiles decides to bring it in) to be offered only with the DSG version. The new engine propels the hatch from 0 to 100km/h in 10.8 seconds (Estate: 10.9 seconds) while returning a combined fuel economy of 5.7 lt/100km. The performance figure sounds decent and it seems to hate visits to petrol station too. This is a good opportunity for Harvest Automobile to once again promote the Octavia brandname among local buyers. Remove the HID lamps, headlamp washers, electric front seats, Alcantara seat (locally fitted leather will do) and pit it against the Corolla Altis in terms of pricing. I am sure we can see more Octavias zipping around if Harvest do the right thing.
