I'm really glad you got it in time. My spare wheel well had lots of rust dribbles which I could never find where they were coming from. Even if I did find the culprit the first time I noticed the spare wheel well rust it would probably have still been too late :frown:

I decided to check the other side too and it was just as bad as the side shown in the photo's. ****** disgraceful the garage not noticing this really! I no longer have the car though. I sold it a few months back. The buyer seemed quite c...

Thanks for the info Rappy. Would you entertain a car with this mileage? I am not completely put off by it however I do have concerns with general wear and tear parts and don't want to fork out a small fortune over the months after possibly purchasing it. This time round I need to be a bit more cauti...

Octavia Estates are great cars, i have driven a few, and we have used Scout 4x4 versions at work... the only caveat i would add is whilst the boot space is fantastic, its at the expense of the rear passenger compartment, leg room is tight for adults,and 3 adults in the rear can be quite a squeeze! ...
