hi dr. Vikas!

thanks for the info! I am going out tomorrow to check out the price, discounts & accessories being offered in Bangalore(although ll buy it from Kolhapur only) Also can I get the insurance done from Belgaum(Kar) as insurance in Kar is cheaper compared to Maha? whilst registration is double cause of registration I might end up paying 40-50k more :S

Also wanted to ask if the parking sensor is of any help??(I mean absolute necessity?? makes things very easy??) and how much will he quote for it?

I am not able to choose the colour also as my wife does not want white & shes more interested in black.. I like the red but just wanted to know if colours fade after 3-4 yrs & if white is the best???

Hi shreya,

I am sure red colour will not fade atleast in Fabia, since all Skoda cars come with paint warranty.

although silver looks very elegant on skoda cars.

How about beige colour ? It is actually not beige like beige interiors but very top class colour as such.




It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.

hi  shreya,

there is lot of confusion in colour  choice.my wife was also in favour of white color but as we gave two colors (white and c. beige)for option,c.beige was only available at the time of delivery and we had it.FORTUNATELY, everybody appreciated it.Though my wife has not allow me to take out the white tape from bonet and roof as she likes  white the most.

FAB LOOKS FAB -ULOUS IN C.BEIGE.

Hi Everyone..

@ Dr Vikas : was travelling so have been out of action.. Nice to see so much activity on the thread ,

@ Shailinder: Well its a complete Deja Vu reading about your decision making process. I went through the exact same transition. I had almost booked a Figo diesel Titanium. Just then a friend strongly recommended that I test drive the Fabia before taking the final call. 

The Figo is a great car, it may not enjoy the premium tag of the Fabia but then its not even pretending to be in the same league. Things changed for me the moment I sat inside the Fabia. It just felt so much more grown up than the Figo, however I still feel the power delivery of the Figo diesel is a lot more linear compared to the Fabia. 

Other than a small turbo lag (which is no big deal in the city) I have absolutely no complaints with my car. I first decided to buy the Classic variant - power windows at least in the front were an important factor to me so I upgraded to the Ambiente.

Another thing - My Ambiente does feature a gear change indicator on the instrument cluster. 

All the best.


Hi Kapil,

Congrats.. C Beige is a very elegant colour

hi mr kapil

 let me give some suggestions of choosing the fabia colour . i personally thought of folowing reasons...i have a candy white fabia now 2yrs+.

1. white looks cool and i ll say really cool not just for looks but i swear even during summer months.( rule of physics..white reflects).i found that if you just keep the window glasses little bit down and park it ( for hot air to go out) you will further decrease the heat build up inside the car. make sure you have rain guards fitted in case if it rains/rainy days. i have a red wagon R and despite the same measures  it remains terrible hot- as if i am in a hot oven.

2. in case you drive in highways or night white always helps-safety first- as otehr vehicles can see you better.

3.it is easy to maintain and repair from scratches/ dents.  the paint quality used in our fabia is top class. even today many of my friends thinks i bought it few months back. compare it with any other white colours cars in the market today and might be after few yrs..

3.the overall contrasts/ character of the car stands out in white.

4.finally you feel in full peace in white...ha...ha...

 this is not to offend other friends in the forum who have choosen the other colours. might be they have their own reasons,..please do add...
