    Isn't Skoda owned by VW?

    Technically... You're both partially correct. The new Fabia is 50% MQB platform, 40% PQ26 platform and around 10% PQ25 platform. You can also still get the Fabia with pre VW Skoda engines. Sadly TEAM VW hasn't learned anything from SEAT Motorsports, Audi Motorsports, or Skoda Motorsports and is seriously lagging behind those three in the Rally world despite all being owned by VAG.

    Isn't the Polo dominating WRC right now?

    2 back to back championships is hardly dominating when it's sibling company Skoda had 17 years of straight championships in its class. Citroen had 9, Mitsubishi 4 or 5.

    VW actually has a horrid history in modern day rallying. Look at the Golf during the 80s. Too bad they didn't build on the success of the beetle. (Touareg in the Dakar) being an exception.

    And what's fucking sad is VW owns Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Seat, and Skoda. All marks synanomous with Motorsport Greatness, and performance. It actually saddens me that just recently the have started to become successful. Prolly decided to go with cost savings and got those cars from the Mexican plant... Like my Jetta...

    The Polo has only been in the WRC for two years. And it's won a good chunk of races. That's pretty good in my book.



    And have you owned a Germany made MK4? I've had three (99.5 Golf, 2003 Jetta Wagon, 2004 R32) and honestly, the Mexican made MK4s are way better.

    Nope. 1 Derby, 2 Lupos, Mk2 GTI, and a k2.

    I never said they were doing bad. All I said was I wouldn't consider two years dominating. Yet... Lol

    EDIT: oh yeah and a Mk4 Jetta
