  4. @bluesapphire


    We all have been discussing from a long time, anything left to talk about ?

    From beginging we both were rocking the same boat.. i remember from altis to cruze to laura to jetta to civic > all big discussions.


    i remember when we all were favouring the cruze.. but after we see the car, its turns out the cons are to heavy on the pros.


    anyway i bought the laura becase my dads friends owns jmd skoda. ( so i dont need to worry about services and fake parts bs )


    if i wasnt buying the laura, then i would pick jetta.


    anyway, you have any questions to ask from the top ? i can really ask my friend - who is uncle surabjees son.


  5. Hey guys, my friends are planning to make a road trip from mumbai to goa..
