Mid '92 was when CATs become compulsory fitment from new, and emission regs tightened right down at the same time. My old Favorit was Jan 92 with carb and no cat. mid '92 modles were VW style Bosch injection, and a cat. Thats it, do the filters, give it an oil change, and check it is tuned up, and you shouldn't go wrong. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot.
