im hoping my octavia meets it near that!

 

3.5years into ownership, 80k on it (50 with a remap) and still going strong, apart from the alloys that are made of cheese, and the centre console armrest with cracked leather. (probably all to do with my driving and boney elbows)

 

best shed i have ever owned to be honest, longest owned one aswell, dont even think about replacing it unless tesla decide to do a 50% of sale on the  long rage twin motor :lol:

I have an Octavia Scout, 2l 8v diesel. Got it with 162k, now now 180k, cost me 2k. Has cost me very little to maintain in the 18months iv had it, (biggest expense being when it fired a glow plug out the engine because it had been replaced and x threaded), and has got everything i need except bluetooth. Can throw anything in it, and park it anywhere i want. Banger-nomics
