What is the mileage you are getting?
My vento TSI is 1000 kms old, or young. I get 10 to 12 on normal traffic with some bumper to bumper, 15 to 16 on highways and 7 to 8 on extremely crazy bumper to bumper for hours!

Mine is a Vento TSI and I usually get 11-13kmpl in city and 15-16 on highways.

If you are a sedate driver with light foot and keep the speeds it in between 80-120, this is what I usually get on MFD, following pic is from yesterday's drive to my hometown. It was hovering in between 19-20 kmpl throughout the 400km trip.

Other pic is the overall mileage chart till date using tank full to tank full method.

Does anyone have any feedback on how the headlights perform at night ? I own a GT TSI and cannot drive on the highway post 6pm with stock headlights. Wondering if the Highline Plus LED lights just look pretty or perform really well too.

The LED headlight looks good from a distance when lit. Nice white light which is quite visible in daylight and looks premium. The lights were flickering quite a lot when I looked through the mobile camera, which is visible in the next two pictures below.
Nice observations. How do the lights perform at night ?

Not sure! Haven't driven the car at night as they give test drives only during the day.

It looks bright when I spot the Highline Plus on the road at night. But it will be best if any of the owners can confirm. I am also curious on how it performs when it rains.

The lights are excellent. White and bright. Adequate for city as well as highway. Been driving for a month now. Never felt uncomfortable. It's good in rains too.

I was recently involved in discussion with a VW dealer as I was planning to go for the Vento Highline DSG diesel.

Deal that I was getting :
90k flat discount +
24k discount on the insurance +
07k corporate discount +
10k Exchange bonus +
Exchange value (approx 3L) on the existing car.

This was a very sweeeeet deal for me to let go. (anyone planning to go for Vento can refer the above offers)

Sadly had to drop the plan as the family feels a need for a bigger capacity car.
