The engine is a stonker and the joy of an automatic is unparalleled.
BHPian Desmosedici recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I picked up a pre worshipped 2015 1.8 TSI from a BHPian friend in Dec 2021 and have clocked around 5000 km.
The engine is a stonker. Feature-wise, it’s pretty loaded. Upgraded from an Ecosport Ecoboost MT.
The joy of an AT is unparalleled however have to be really careful due to the extensive potholes in Crater Mumbai.
During the last spell of heavy rains, my headlights were fogged up a lot and my RHS DRL has stopped working and giving an error. I have deactivated the DRL from the HU Lighting Menu however the left one does get switched on with the Headlights.
Apparently, there is a DRL control module on the RHS which is placed near the front right wheel and is susceptible to water ingress which is what I think has conked off.
I am not sure if it’s worth replacing it as the DRLs don’t serve any purpose.
Is there a way to permanently disable the DRL?
All thanks to BHPian vvb8530 who had put those 17-inch TSWs. It gives the Octavia a whole different look and perspective.
I haven’t taken too many pics since it’s my daily drive and it’s been a bit dirty due to the monsoon. Will be detailing it soon and posting pics.
