Default Re: From 'G'e'T'z to VW Polo GT TDI - 45,000 kms / 3 year update

Magic of 1.6 TDI

As reported earlier on this thread, the 3rd 15K kms has been slow, as much of our travels have been overseas. So I wanted to get some good drive on my GT and planned a Munnar trip.

The drive was fantastic and the GT lived up to its badge.

The highlight of the holiday was some stonking FE. With a light foot and some coasting along the beautiful NH49..

...1.6 GT TDI could deliver this:

What is even more astounding is the sheer pace that this little hatch is capable of, and that remarkable stability at such speeds.

By far, the best thing that I have bought with my money:

Superb click of the TDI that!! And if this is the FE with the upsized tyres and wheels (I know you are on 205's unless that is changed now), imagine the capability of the engine.

Thank you Abhinav, and yes the GT is still on 205/55 R15 rubber, and doing pretty well with that

I recently got to drive the A3 35TD and did not get a chance to try out the S mode. But when I did floor the pedal in the D mode, the acceleration was awesome.
And I am really not trying to exaggerate here, but that "Scary Thrust" that the 1.6 GT TDI gives was still not there.

Considering such observations, I have a very strong feeling that the only upgrade that will suffice me would be the 320D...which is still a long way off though

Some more eye candy:
