This thread = closed.
hey guys.. saw three VW polo s parked next to empire hotel on church street last night.. There were two sedans - 1.6 petrol and 1.9 tdi.. and a hatch.. all three had a german registration ( i think)..
The driver was friendly, said the germans were testing it all over south india!! accordin to him they're supposed to be launched in 2010.. guess he was wrong..
Got to sit inside the car for a short run.. seems very very well built for the segment, and quite sturdy..
got a pic, but basic cell phone quality ..quite bad.. will try p[ostin it later..
btw... also saw a new red nissan 350 z... looked hot!

Post the picture dude!
It is quiet amazing they actually allowed outsiders to sit and feel the car and even go on a drive. Congrats bro!
BTW, VWs are known for their solid build. Hope the Indian version of Polos are going to be the same too.

But why south India? Their plant is coming up in Chakan and at the moment their assembly operations for the Passat are on in Aurangabad.

While in Goa last weekend I saw a convoy of the VW Polo, Jetta, Golf and Passat. While the Passat had a MH-20 regn, the remaining pack sported international plates. The Polo was dark Blue in colour. Nice looking cars those!

I guess India is progressing now - I can say this finally - never have I ever before seen such Rapid Launches by companies - I suppose by 2010 we will have all the cars in India !!

The 1st from Left Passat, 2nd Polo Diesel , 3rd polo petrol, 4th (dont rem) Golf i think
