    Here’s my new Daily Driver. Had another Fabia for 7 reliable years so while it was still worth something I decided to trade in for a newer (2018) model with under 4K on the clock. Excellent wee motor, 94 bhp 3-pot turbo, sounds like a ‘mini-me’ 911 under acceleration. More refined than the previous incarnation (where have you heard THAT before?) You’ll notice it’s in ‘Team ELF’ colours... almost!

    Still enjoying the S, which is going as well as ever, and looking forward to Spring when I can get back to topless motoring in my 45 year old MGB. 1950 Oselli Stage 2, Stainless Manifold & single box system, uprated upsuspension with Gaz shocks etc. This is where the money went after I convinced myself the Mini was finally just how I wanted it!

    Happy Motoring everybody, whatever you’re driving.

    You only need two tools in life WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should use WD40 and if it moves and shouldn't use Duct Tape.

    Looks good, I have a Fabia just like this in estate form, it’s mainly the family car for taking kids to nursery, so it’s only covered 5700 miles in a year since new.

    I have the 1.0 MPI, have to work it hard, but fun to drive, even better since I lowered it, this is our third Skoda and so far not had any problems with this one.
