    This can be attributed to either the extra weight of the AWD system, or more likely, the lag due to the bigger turbo.

    The IS38 turbos (Golf R/Superb 206) are noticeably slower to spool for...

    I had a waterpump/oil cooler failure when my car was 2 weeks old. Yes, 2 weeks!!!

    Replaced/repaired under warranty.

    Yours is definitely another warranty case, as mentioned above.

    Interesting question.
    I've done the same recently, with my current RS (RS162) wagon, GolfR Grid, Superb 206, and Tiguan 162.

    Ultimately, what do you want from the car, and how much are you...

    Well I got my car back on Tuesday, 2.5weeks after first dropped to service.
    Happy with the results, in that it's no longer sounding like my rattly old Subaru, but unhappy with Skoda Australia...

    The car has done 57k km.... not 157k! SERIOUS engineering problem (or extreme bad luck) if the chain/timing componenets have worn out before the cars first "major"service.

    Well I can confirm that my Mk3 has some sort of fault in the timing gear, and they are replacing both tensioners (apparently there's 2), all guides & the chain, under warranty.

    This is pretty concerning, as my car is a 2016 Mk3 RS Octavia (CHHB), and over the last 5000km or so (it's just gone 57000km), it's had the startup rattling, like rattly old tappets or a loose chain....

    So for those of us who have the original OBD11 dongle, will it continue to work, or are they phasing out support for it, in favour of the newer version?
