Polo gti or octavia RS ?


Hey faisal

I am confused between these two cars. Pls suggest which is better in terms of handling and performance.

Which one do you prefer for ecu remaping?



Petes tuned

First of all,the VW Polo GTi is no more in stock, so you have only one option-the Octavia VRS which is the better option here.

And talking about ECU remaping companies,I have heard a lot about Petes Tuned.

But offcourse,let's wait for the expert's (FK) advice!

Autopschye is also doing some cool remaps! But if its a Vrs it should be petes!

To me Octy is a better package. It is more practical, more spacious more sophisticated and yeah it's better equipped too . Re-sale value and after sale services of both Skoda and VW SUCK ! But the driving pleasure that Octy offers is totally worth it . I believe the octavia offers more FEEL AND FEEDBACK from the Steering wheel.


NOW COMES MY FAVORITE PART OF THE QUESTION - the performance upgrades -

Close your eyes and go for PETE'S.

These guys have been in the business for a very long time and Pete has upgraded all three RS versions (including the Laura RS )

For the third generation Octavia Pete recommends -

1: Pete's custom remap - stage


2: Milltek full exhaust including

decat downpipe.

3: Forge full intake system

including intake pipe and turbo

muffler delete.

4: Bilstein B6 with H&R springs.



And that's it. That's actually more than enough....

With all these upgrades the Octy will throw 324+HP punches and you better be ready when it does... :-P


Also, if you are able to get a near perfect launch you can get a 0-100 time of exactly 6 seconds! Which is ABSOLUTELY INSANE !!


Let's see what FK has to say.

But a guy from autopschye has laura RS which takes only 4.3 seconds from 0-100

Octavia any day, the RS is just super, offering both fun and practicality.

I totally forgot to mention that Skoda is coming up with a face lifted octavia in late 2020 so the ball is in your court now!
