Tim's Fabia vRS

Postby Tim_GTi » Sat Oct 08, 2011 7:55 pm

Finally got myself a Fabia vRS, and the wait really paid off!

Couldn't have asked for better. Black, 68k, factory xenons, factory two tone leather, factory sat nav with integrated digital dash display!

Car's in amazing nick, the leather looks and feels brand new, and the paintwork will be stunning after I've gone at it with the DA polisher.

I was unsure about the leather in the advert, I was actually planning on selling it and keeping my Polo GTi seats. But it's stunning in person, the black leather door cards are a nice touch also. So the Polo seats will be for sale!

Image
Image

The dash is great, it carries data from the head unit. Including sat nav directions, music info (radio channel etc..), the usual trip computer, and a car status section. I assume the latter is for informing me of faults etc? It's current state is 'OK'

Image

The sat nav/radio is awesome. 6 disc changer also under passenger seat. Hardly any vRS's with this I believe!

Image

I need to order some dash blanks. The previous owner had fitted a parrot bluetooth kit, and the controller wasn't fitted to my liking. So I had the dash out within minutes of being home, and relocated it here:

Image

It seems to have all the post facelift goodies; lights, over shoulder 3rd rear seatbelt, lazy boy indicators, different top dash, black engine logo. But it still has the battery cover, which I love as I was planning on getting one from a pre-facelift.

Image

This is very much going to be a work in progress. I have a lot of small plans for it.

Next on the list is bulbs all round, grill plate surround and handles colour coded, some coil overs, and proper clean!

Yeah I like these alot. We got the normal fabia as a work run around and tbh it gies very well and super solid feeling and being a company car I hurt it hehe.

So a vrs will be naughty....

Little lower, lcr splitter and a nice set of black alloys will kill the look.. IMO ha!

Looks great Tim,the added extras are always worth the wait especially the factory Xenons.Satnav is the same as i fitted to the Polo,gret you've got the dash display with next manouver on it.Unfortunately the Polo has not display haha.

Look foward to seeing you make it your own,remember you wanting one for a while now.

Looks great :)

My question is, how much power can you squeeze from it whilst still retaining economy? ;-)

175-180bhp is about the cut off point with the PD130 engines before you start loosing the immense economy.
Running 170+bhp your likely to get 45-50mpg and 60+ on a motorway run

They have 130bhp standard with 224ft lbs of torque but a good re-map takes them to 170+ bhp and 290+ ft lbs of torque :)

Looks like you got a great example there Tim.

I got a vRS back in June. As much as I love it, I still miss my GTi...my heart sinks every time I see one.

The Fabia makes much more sense financially though; half the price in tax and much less in insurance.

If you have Vagcom, get Autolock put on (if you haven't already); dead easy to do.

Have fun!!!
