Ameo TSI? How did you know that?! Ameo TDI DSG and TSI (DSG/Manual) may just knock the Polo out and sell in bucket loads.

There was a TSi badge on the Ameo.

Rear bumper looked slightly different but I couldn't tell much. Was dazed after a 3 hour jam in the ghat section.

I think so. Internationally, people have done that successfully. Search for Polo 6C LED headlamp retrofit for Polo 6R.

However, it is not a simple plug and play retrofit. It may require a Body Control Module change, and activation/adaptation via VCDS.

VagTune seems to have installed these LED Lamps in several Polo vehicles. Apparently the lamps are supplied along with the necessary adapters to make them somewhat Plug N Play Install for the existing POLO/Vento. But the biggest put off at the moment seems to be the cost @ 1.60L

Hi prince85,

Even I had seen pictures of several Vento/Polo with LED headlight on Vagtune Facebook page but I did not know that everyone paid 1.6 lacs for this retrofit. Did you get this quote directly from Vagtune and does this include BCM swap as well?

Regards.

Hi,
Yes i got the quote directly from Mr.Sugesh (VAgTune) when i was placing an order for the GTI Projector/DRL Headlamps with them. IIRC, he said its a basic plug-n-play install with the supplied wiring adapters. So i am assuming no BCM upgrade required.

Cheers

Hi folks. Need a quick advice please!

Like a few of you know, I am contemplating buying either a Honda Jazz V CVT or a Vento TSI Highline.

Now given that the new vento is around the corner, I played hardball with VW Mumbai West for the current Vento TSI and finally they have agreed at a price of ₹12,20,000/- for Vento TSI Highline. At this price should I opt for a TSI Highline instead of a Jazz V CVT?

The Jazz best quote I have is ₹10,00,000 on road.

Someone I hope will reply!

I would say go for it. Seems to be a great price. I assume this is for the Highline. This is less than the OTR I paid for my TSI nearly three years back in Bangalore.

On a side note, I assume you read about the Ameo Diesel DSG Launch. At 9.5L ex showroom for the Highline Diesel DSG with 110PS power, looks to be fantastic value for money. You actually get additional kit also. Worth looking at if you are ok with the looks of the Ameo.

I am a Jazz MT owner but I always wanted to own Polo, but back seat space led me to strike it out. But, believe me VW is in altogether different league in terms of build quality and fit finish. Also, you will have nice combo of performance, convenience and space in Vento compared to Ameo/Jazz. Why not check City CVT if you are considering Jazz CVT, you get better engine and performance.

My vote goes to Vento TSI, anyday better than Jazz CVT. Honda has issues with fit finish and the plastics are a level below than Hyundai/VW, I have rattles from dashboard and door panels at 8k kms.

Hope this helps.

Ameo diesel has been launched but there is absolutely no update on Vento. Wonder what Volkswagen India is thinking. Any reason why they do not want to launch the Highline plus with LED lights? Also a cheaper Ameo has advanced(?) engine than the 'premium' Vento. Called few showrooms across Chennai, Bangalore and Pune. Everyone is clueless. Most of them expected the Vento updated along with Ameo diesel launch.

They will update both Vento and Polo with new engines very soon. It will mostly happen before the launch of Rapid Facelift (that's currently speculated for Nov). You can expect a silent update of the duo in next 15 days.

Hello people. Any news on the Polo diesel getting the sweet DSG gearbox? I have booked the Baleno, but would surely drop the booking if the Polo is launched with the auto tranny. I was thinking about the Ameo, but cannot get over the fact that it has perhaps the worst derrière of all the notchbacks there are in our market. Rather I hate the concept of the under 4 mtr sedan which in my opinion does not make sense at all.

Is that price after 50k discount that is being offered at this point of time on vento petrol? Last I checked it was 12.72 with 50k discount excluding extended insurance and b2b without any negotiations for TSI highline. 12.2 seems really realistic to me if we try and squeeze a little more. This is for Pune.
