  • SKODA launches UK special edition Octavia vRS Challenge




    • vRS Challenge features additional equipment and design features
    • Available in hatch and estate; priced from £30,085
    • 2.0 TSI engine generates 245PS and comes with optional DSG


    Itís already one of the most affordable and desirable family sports cars on sale, and now äKODAís mighty Octavia vRS is even more compelling thanks to the introduction of a UK special edition model; the Octavia vRS Challenge. The new model
    features up to £4,535 worth of extra equipment for only £2,460 compared to the standard vRS model.

    Positioned above the standard vRS and offered with the brandís acclaimed 2.0 TSI 245PS engine, the Octavia vRS Challenge combines impressive performance with high equipment levels and an ultra-practical cabin. Available in both hatch and estate forms, the Octavia vRS Challenge is priced from £30,085 OTR (hatch) and £31,285 (estate) and is available to order from äKODA retailers from today.


    The car features a comprehensive specification list that builds on the already generous equipment levels of the standard model. The vRS Challenge comes complete with a host of striking design features over the standard vRS, including 19-inch Xtreme black alloy wheels, sports exhaust with black trim, black folding, auto-dimming door mirrors and black vRS badging.


    Inside, over the standard model, the vRS Challenge is fitted with figure-hugging Alcantara vRS seats that are electronically adjustable and heated for the driver and front-seat passenger. A colour trip computer with lap timer is also fitted as standard, along with keyless entry and start.


    Dynamic chassis control (DCC) is another advanced feature that comes as part of the vRS Challenge package. DCC uses electrically regulated dampers and steering to deliver the perfect driving experience. Each individual shock absorber is connected to a control device that calculates the best setting for each wheel. This allows the system to react within milliseconds to bumps in the road, changing lanes or twisting roads. Front assist and front and rear parking sensors complete the vRS Challengeís specification list.


    The car is equipped with a 2.0 TSI engine that develops 245PS. Capable of sprinting to 62mph in just 6.6 seconds (hatch) and 370Nm of torque, customers can choose between a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed DSG.


    The fitment of an electronically regulated VAQ limited-slip differential allows drivers to fully exploit the carís performance - even in challenging conditions. The VAQ limited-slip differential was originally developed for motorsport and works with an electronically regulated multi-plate clutch located between the differential and the powered axle on the right-hand side. When needed, 100 per cent of the power can be directed to one front wheel. When cornering, the differential transfers an increased amount of engine power to the outer front wheel (wheel with the most grip) as required.


    Equipment highlights shared with the standard vRS range include Amundsen satellite navigation with eight-inch touchscreen display and integrated Wi-Fi, full LED headlights with adaptive front light system and LED daytime running lights, LED interior light pack (10 colours) and a three-spoke sports leather multi-function steering wheel with vRS logo (and paddles for DSG-equipped models).

    So if -2 is acceptable where does that leave me for identifying what's causing the camshaft fault code?

    I would think your suspension and your droplinks that connect on each side of the ARB would be more at fault than ARB bushes If its that severe. Not to

    245ps Tiptronic very smooth and zero maintenance (according to Audi!). Had in my 2013 A7 and was great. Tons of torque at the bottom end.
