It seems like winter has started here as well, minus the little warm up we had yesterday and today. I can imagine now with winter tires you'll really be looking forward to what the car can do once you get a decent amount of snow. I'm sure having slightly taller tires will help a little bit with clearance.

I'm looking forward to seeing some new pictures of your car busting a path through the snow.

Still not enough snow to cause any excitement but that's nice for a change, makes my job easier.
Really happy with the taller tires, been getting 37-38 mpg with studded tires, if I did the math right when calculating the difference in tire size. Seems like the odometer reading didn't change when I calibrated the speedometer for the larger tires so the distance reads 2-3% too low.

Despite the Skoda Octavia mk2 being based on a mk5 Golf there are some areas that differ quite a bit. The boot space is one.
Here's how mine is laden most of the time:
*jumper cables, tow line and misc tools in the black box
*clothes and istruments needed in my work as a forester. Blue box
*a box of flagging tapeš
*snow shoes
*first aid kit
*50l backpack
*an axe
*misc small stuff
In the summer an insulated cooler for food and water.
All this with room to spare!

No new pics but it has rolled over to the 300k km side
Have some service planned, rear diff, haldex and timing belt to start with. I'll change the t-stat too, I think the temp was a bit too low last winter.

This is such an incredible car, I also wish we had something like it in the USA. The Touareg TDI is the closest thing, but is comparatively big, complicated, and heavy.

On my TDI Golf I always worry about that fuel cooler... it seems extremely vulnerable, and could lead to running out of diesel in a remote place if punctured.

Skoda Octavia is one of my favorite car. I love to see your car but can't find its picture. Please share its picture.
