I READ with surprise that Peter Robinsonís Lotto car (Wheels, January 2015) is a Skoda Octavia Elegance.

Are you able to confirm that I read the article correctly and that he did actually purchase this model? If so, then I applaud his decision: I was the first person to buy a Skoda Octavia here in Brisbane in December 2007 (a 1.9TDI Ambiente DSG wagon) and the car has run faultlessly ever since.

Yes, we can confirm it. Peter and his Skoda are very happy together.
