Thanks AvonA7!

Major problem is the time. But I will start one shortly.

Tonight, I plan to take some pics of interiors with lights lit and post it.

ICE has large buttons which are easy to use. Mute button helps!! With Spark, I was using a 4 GB USB pen drive. Now, I have copied all the songs on to 5 Cd's.

Knob needs to be pulled once for front fog lamps and twice for rear fog lamps. Switch gear quality is top class.

Night snaps will have a longer exposure time. I needed a tripod - which I did not have. Without it, the pictures are slightly blurred. I could rest my hand on the steering, while taking the pics of the MFD. So, MFD pics have come well.

Brightness will appear normal if the pics does not shake. MFD pics taken directly, is less brighter then that appears in the interiors pic. Also, in case of the interior pics, camera decides the shutter speed based on the darkest area. There-by, brighter objects gets over-exposed. May be, I will try shifting the point of interest and see if it improves.

I will try to catch hold of a Tripod shortly and post some better pics.

Quot: AvonA7 - In one of the snap showing " Service Alert " - what is the 2nd row showing 350 ?

That is the number of days left for service. Service Interval is 15,000Kms or 1 year, whichever is earlier.

Lovely pics Chethan.

Mute is simple but cool. It helps when any occupant gets / makes a phone call.

Does the air-flow control knob in Polo only has 4 positions? I am surprised, since most of cars nowadays seems to have 6 position - windshield > face > face+foot > foot > face+foot+windshield > face+windshield. Is Polo equipped with ACC?

Yes. I was also surprised. Have to see if these positions suffice the needs. Polo does not come with ACC.

Do not worry! You will get your's soon!!

Driver seat adjust is a waste IMHO. But shorter drivers need to comment on this.

Polo interior is the best among all the hatchback in India. Very well balanced interior.
