I hope VW has followed prescribed norms when cars were lying in stock. Usually tyres are overinflated to prevent the rubber from going out of shape at the contact point. Super rare size this one. I don't think its available in the Indian market. I hope VW can supply tyres when needed. Or am I being over optimistic?

BTW as per VIN decoding its a MY 2017 car built in Pamplona, Spain in 2016.
I am sure latest michelin PS4 in 225 size can fit in this one. One more question, are you getting the warranty 2+2 years full, meaning starting from your invoice date? Recently VW told me that warranty starts from date of manufacturing i.e. Jan-2017. Me too considering to bargain hard on the stock left. However, since yours is the final black, i have to select from white, red and silver. I have white Jetta, so red it will be. lets see how much juice i can take out from VW dealer.

Only PS4 size available in 16" is 205/50R16 as per the website. It will be a downgrade from the stock 215s IMO.

Warranty has to be from the invoice date! Dealer is confusing you. I will check the fine print in the standard warranty booklet. Extended warranty booklet is yet to be delivered.

Regarding colour, that is what my dealer told me. Dealer's words are always to be taken with a pinch of salt. But regarding price there was no room for any negotiation. You can try with your dealer. All the best!

Ownership review is pending santosh sir. Even a short photologue with first impressions will help in decision making.

Will try and put up a detailed review after racking up some miles.
Congrats!! Looking forward to the ownership review.

I hope VW replaces the current GTI in India with the new 2018 Polo GTI recently showcased at the Frankfurt MOtor Show. It is much more practical with four doors. Apparently the 2 door version is discontinued.

Drive on,
Shibu.

I'll need to spend some time with the car and drive over varied conditions to do justice to an ownership review. I've barely driven 30 kms since I brought it home! I have been travelling a lot. Out of next 25 days I am out for almost 15 days. My hands are really itching to get behind the wheel. I'll be happy to answer any specific questions in the meantime.

PS : Just call me Santosh

Sure Santosh, Take your time, no hurries. 39 pieces still to go. By the way, how much amount you paid for the extended warranty + RSA?

Kochi is definitely buying the GTI after the price correction. Here is one I spotted at office parking yesterday. And black looks to be the favorite colour among those lucky few. It surely looks very menacing on road. Or maybe it is just evoking that respect in you subconsciously.

Sorry about the low light photography. Maybe this is good as it projects the 3 door setup really well. LOL


Edit:
Btw, congratulations on the GTI Santosh! Lovely lovely choice. I now have a definite favorite if I were to pick a car from your garage for a drive.
