19s are for looks but lightweight 18s are what you need. 👍

I am a little surprised he hasn't done any Skoda content. I know perhaps Skoda isn't the most sporty or fashionable brand out there, but to have not even had a cursory once over of cars like the Octavia vRS seems a little remiss to me. 🤷‍♂️

On his latest video he says he's getting a VRS in to review.

Just watched the video. Seems he read my mind...

Interested that he was taking it easy for the first 1000 miles. I asked about this when I picked mine up, and was told no running in period was necessary

I think that’s just an old school thing that Andrew obviously very much subscribes to. Similarly, he put that white MK7.5 R Wagon up on a ramp and put a sealant on the underbody... despite knowing he’d only be keeping it a few months.

A thousand miles in and my 128ti hasn’t complained once about things not working. Even my mk7 will occasionally say front assist not working. Just saying  :lipsrsealed:

Apologies if this is a stupid question but:
Is it better that the Bolas are lighter?
Does that mean that they won’t be as strong and more susceptible to pot hole damage?
Cheers,
Chas

Definitely not a stupid question.

Lighter wheels will handle and ride a little better, google “unsprung weight” if you’re not overly familiar with the term, it can make a big difference.

Many things will affect strength, from wheel construction (the Bolas are marketed as something along the lines of “flow cast” or something which is potentially a good thing), quality of the actual metal alloy, and the design. Thin, widely spread spokes are lighter but leave large areas of the wheel prone to going out of shape when suffering impacts.
