It Began

Friday, April 13th 2018 – looks like it’s Yeti time 😎

I emigrated here to the Czech Republic in 2016 and I didn’t immediately buy a Yeti – I bought an old Getz.
A year of running around in this and it had exhausted me from its basicness.

Here it is, in for more repairs 😡

I suppose I have been drawn to the Skoda Yeti since I first saw it on Top Gear.

And now I am living in the birthplace of the Yeti

The Czech Republic = Skoda territory.
So I made up my mind and now the hunt was on.
My requirements:
  • One previous owner if possible
  • Full service history
  • Low miles, err, kilometres
  • Must be previously owned by a non smoker (I had given up the week before and could smell a stale fag a mile, err, kilometre away)
  • Not the face-lift model, it looks like an Octavia from the front and not the distinctive Yeti (no offence to my friends over at the Yeti Owners Club)
  • Silver or black or blue. Definitely not that ugly brown, it’s for old men and people who are colour blind (no offence to my friends over at the Yeti Owners Club)
I viewed two and decided against them (one nearly matched my criteria but was in that old man brown) (no offence to my… 😏)

And then there she was😍

I floored the Getz all the way to the Skoda dealer’s address listed in the ad.
I spent around two hours checking everything: condition, documents, a test drive, everything.

I found MY Yeti 100%

Time to pay.
Logged into my bank from my mobile, I hit ‘send money now’ and the equivalent of £8,250 was in my account no more.

The dealership prepared my Yeti and I took ownership two days later 

My first ever Skoda.
I sold the Getz soon after. Some young punk was looking for a jalopy to strip then race across the fields with. Farewell, old girl.
I didn’t know it at the time, but buying this Yeti would reignite the passion for driving that had deserted me ages ago.​

Owning my Yeti has stimulated all kinds of passions within me

There is car customising. There are road trips. And joining online groups and forums. Creating and maintaining this website!
Nothing but good times.
I'm loving my Skoda Yeti.
