I'll have to check it out, in the cable box was a guide I did on the A4 I did when I had that. It is good what you can turn on for free!

Loving it, it's so nice having some power again!
We had 7 seats for the last 4/5 years and only used them a few times. Was nice to have 'just in case' but we decided that it's not worth it really, our household doesn't need them, it was only for carrying extras.
Screen seemed really narrow compared to the cmax, but used to it now.
Chucked loads of stuff in the boot yesterday, no problems there, plenty of room.
Missus prefers the stiffer ride, not wallowing around corners, yes it's a bumpier ride, but I grew up in a MK1 escort Mexico with stiffened suspension, so I actually prefer it bumpy, I'm not a fan of super smooth.

I half thought many would have adjustable dampers - seems that's DCC in skoda talk.

Is the LSD it has very (pleasantly) discernible versus previous fwd's ? I imagine pulling out of a junction it must be obvious there, for starters.

It's a facelift 230, it won't have the VAQ e-diff, just the XDS brake based system.

Aye prior to all this covid shenanigans we used the 7 seats (in the cmax haha!) quite often, weekend sout wiht the bairns and their cousins n stuff.
The Cmax boot was cavernous but the octavias and superbs I looked at seemed to have a fair whack of room :D always handy haha
I'm thoroughly enjoying the Kodiaq as well, despite all the nay sayers about skoda I think a lot of the recent press for them has been wholly positive.

Im not thinking my next chaneg will be either to the EV equiv or the kodiaq or a superb or octy estate
