I had my eye on the car from when I got the 5008, Figured it would drive quite similar just much smaller. Went to see one to gauge space and whatnot but in the end I purchased it without test driving.Did you take a test drive, or just take a punt?
If test drive, where?
Thanks. And glad you're enjoying your new car.
The 1st edition seats are slightly different, leather and fabric but really nice. Overall it's a very comfortable car to be in. Really impressed with it so far.The dealer in Morden called to say they have a demonstrator. It's a blue GT model, rather than a First Edition, but I'm guessing the ride would be the same. Trouble is: they are only offering a 20-minute ride around the block. I want to know how the car rides on the motorway and what the seat's like after a couple hours.
So, Xari5008, what's the seat like after a couple hours?
For comparison I had a 67 plate Audi A6 quattro black edition before this and I'm a huge fan of then interior on the 508 the screen is really well placed with the piano interface and is much smoother than the 3008 and 5008. Everything is laid out really well in my opinionHow do you feel the interior compares to the quality of the fittings in German cars, or the old car come to that?
That's what I'm driving now, a 66-plate Sportline hatch. I bought it with my head, rather than my heart. I really wanted an Alfa Romeo Giulia, but a test drive in both cars swayed my mind. That and the bargain I was offered.Skoda Superb came very close.
Great things about the 508 so far:That's what I'm driving now, a 66-plate Sportline hatch. I bought it with my head, rather than my heart. I really wanted an Alfa Romeo Giulia, but a test drive in both cars swayed my mind. That and the bargain I was offered.
After two plus years of ownership, the Skoda really is an excellent car. It just doesn't set my heart fluttering.
I read that the 508 will be offered as a hybrid "soon". I suppose that I can manage with my perfectly fine Skoda until I'm ready for a plug-in in a year or two.
Still, I'm keen to hear how you get on with your new 508! Cheers.
