So, finally I decided on this cabin air filter.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Someone will get this for me next month from US.

Why don't you peel one back and if the OE covers are found to be in good nick, it would be worthwhile to have the same cleaned up and used as is. For me nothing can come close to the quality of the factory covers be it cloth or something else.
I will have to check what is inside the covers. I don't think the seats have any cover inside, but I will still check.

A friend has lots of new and used parts for sale for the cedia. The list of new items and prices are -

1). New Clear glass sports tail lamps left and right DEPO - 6,000 for the pair
2). New Rear engine mounting - 2,200
3). New RH front fendor - 3,500
4). New front fendor indicator light - 500
5). New Air filter - 500

There are lots of used parts in good condition should get the list and prices by the night, will put them up here incase anyone wants them since cedia parts are really really expensive and difficult to source outside.

Got the cabin air filter from someone coming from US.
It does not come with any screws and the documentation talks about using screws to fit it. So I have to figure this out with someone more competent.

Still pending: 3M Nomad mats and seat covers. I have become lazy at the moment.

Ok. Got the filter installed some time back. Getting the glove box off was the only tricky part for me. But now that I know it, next time should be easier.

Wiped off the blower area with a cloth and installed the filter with air flow direction pointing downwards. The filter needed two screws and I spent some time finding the right ones from my collection.
I have a 500 km trip coming up after two days. I am not sure if I would notice any difference that this filter makes to the cooling or the quality of air we breathe.

After reading about Alto's score in the NCAP ratings (another thread), I decided to check what rating our Cedia got back in 2006.

I found this link
http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Shop...vehicleId=1769

Overall, the side impact score is very poor, but the front impact score is fine.


I think the car is very much the same as we have here in India.

It is, except that it is LHD. So then maybe we are safer as their passenger side becomes our driver side

I think the rating is low because there are no curtain bags.
The impact on either side of the car should result in similar damages I guess, unless they expect that someone will T-bone only from the side that they have tested in those tests.
So, I am guessing both sides would have the same impact absorbing beams and sheet metal thickness.

Its been a long time having written here. I hope everyone is doing well. Havent heard from any one including Khoj sir, mandheers or Sun..

I have been keeping quite busy, although I did come to India for 5 week long holidays, but then you know how holidays are.

The cedia is being used mostly by my uncle and my brother. Most of the drives are inter city almost throughout the day. I came to India in end of july for 5 weeks and that time just flew. I noticed quite a few things with the car that needs to be addressed but I didn't bother as I knew the car will get back in the same condition by the time I go back to India for good in Feb next year.

Regarding the condition, the car was 1.08 lac kms driven by end of July. As of today it would stand around 1.14 lac kms or so. The exteriors were dull and full of scratches and the bumpers need paint job. The interiors were a little rough too, with driver seat stitching and gear knob stitching coming off. The driver side tweeter had come off and the same goes for clutch ralliart pedal. Did I fix anything.. NO.

I just got the servicing done at 1.08 lac kms (14k since the last service). Castrol EDGE definitely lasted fine for 14k kms as the car is very sedately driven. The 1.1 lac service included change of engine oil, oil filter and air filter. The Castrol edge has gone expensive and costed Rs.2800 (MRP gone up from 3700 or so to Rs.4400/-, if I remember correct). The rear shocks are on their way. With my driving, the car was mostly floating from the rear.

However, I drove Polo for most of the time (well sort of, I don't have words for this unreliable German Junk http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post3252813)


In between, we had a lovely guys trip to Chandigarh in the Evoque and a pleasing family trip to Agra in the Evoque and Cedia. The cedia certainly is understated. It kept all the way up with Evoque even on the wrong side of Double ton. And this was with me, my uncle and my brother in law driving the Cedia on Yamuna Expressway. Sitting in rear of cedia with almost kaput rear shocks was still not bad. We could feel major humps but nothing I would complain of. The new Evoque though was Mesmerizing. Covered the 160 kms expressway in about 58 mins including toll. This was on 15th August. The FE with this driving and 4 people with luggage came to 10km/L, which again is not bad.

The car will be around 1.25 lac driven by the time I get back and will be due for tyre change too. I plan to get the rear shocks replaced if I get the Tein Springs from US. Else, I will go for manual setting TEIN shocks/coiloversmay be from red roosters, which may be around 80k or so.

I may upgrade to 16" but that is if budget permits. But suspension is definitely something I want to address the first. The hard and lifted front end with soft and bulgy rear leads to pathetic handling and very vague steering response.

Rest, complete interior and exterior detailing is also very much needed. Will need a budget of about 1-1.5 lacs overall, that may also include some audio upgrade.. And yes for a car that today values about 1.5 lac in market..

@Gaurav: Good to see this thread back to life. Perhaps the title of the thread should be changed to 1 lac KM now.
It seems that your Cedia will surpass my Cedia's odo very soon. I have not used my car much, but have a long trip planned in November.

Meanwhile, the passenger side door lock has developed some problem.
I will try and upload a video here, but basically, the chrome part which can be used to lock the door from inside has somehow lost the spring loaded action that it should have. I can still lock the door from the driver side central locking but that part does not go back to the locked position.

Question is how do you open up that lock?

Ya, the Cedia should have over 1.25 lac kms by feb/march next year.

I believe if you go to a good local denter, he should be able to open the door for you.

I am Guilty . Agreed! I wanted to call, but got soo tired with going to different places and meeting friends and family in the first half of august and in the second half - had a personal commitment that kept me busy. And the remaining few days got tortured by Polo, as I didn't have cedia with me for most of the time.

Just going to PM you my email id. We will continue to talk for sure .

In btw, I hope both the beasts in your garage are doing well.

I was researching a bit about opening the door handle from inside, and came across this video.


So, there is a clip that is removed using a blade and then the screw inside is removed. Now, I don't know if the clip which was sort-of broken during removal can be fitted back or not.
I will look around for some more videos and then decide if this is indeed a DIY for me or not.


Edit: Found a better video:

I think the problem would be that the two cables which are inside the door are not doing their job properly.
