Congratulation on the Rapid. Good choice of the color, liked it very much!

The Rapidly increasing odometer tells the story of your ride.

These are few very good snaps of the ride which call for more snaps (interior & exterior) and ownership review. Hope you can find time to do this soon.

Many congratulations for your new Skoda. Some cool alloys and your Rapid would be a head turner. Enjoy your car, and post some interior pics too.

I just had gone through the user manual, checked the level using dipstick, around 500ml drop during first 3000kms is normal ie, engine seasoning.
Now after that i have clocked 6500 kms (total) no noticeable change in oil level
according to the technical expert you can run up to the panel warning light

Thanks for the info.
BTW, I took mine to Skoda service for free summer camp. They declared it all fit, no top up required. All is well [:)]
