I really like that last pic. The polo looks like a tiger surveying the grasslands for its prey.

That is, (for example) if the red line starts at 6000 RPM, restrict yourself below 4500 RPM - in 3rd, 4th & 5th Gear. In the first & second Gear, stay below 50%, that is 3000 RPM. This is until you cross the company recommended run-in period. After that, increase engine speed gradually - about 500 RPM every 200 Kms.

It is not just the engine which needs to be run-in. Suspension parts, brake assembly, transmission parts, tyres...etc, will all require your care. Go easy on everything. But, don't worry. All these parts are designed to take the brunt.

Relax & Enjoy! All the Best!!
Thanks Chetan. Sorry, I missed your reply in this storm of ICE posts
Your answer was very informative and would be very helpful in convincing my wife for this long trip!
Will try to maintain the recommended engine speed during the run-in period.

Waiting for the pics of your car interior after the HU install.

Thanks,
Alex.

I think that the color matches Polo dash. If you carefully observe, center of the ICE is black, and the side around it is gray. On the other side, Motevo ICE will not suit the dash.

Yes. It is 6". You can get 6.5" Co-Axial also, with some other make.

Polo stock speakers are 6.5", 8 ohms, 20 watts pmpo. 6.5" is the Maximum you can fit.

Haha alot. When I inquired I was told they were in the range of 5k. But when I called the Bombay dealer he said they dont make them for my car.

Can you find out if it is available for the 2007 Accord if possible? I dont believe the Bombay dealer.

Was driving behind a Polo this evening: thought the rear lights looked really nice.

Just thought I'd post this, as you never get to see your own rear lights!

GPS with BT, listed on the VW Indian site is not on-dash.
Wording on the site should have been more clear, as people might get confused.

Thanks for clearing that up & the warm welcome.

IMHO too, the WITSON unit looks best suitable for polo. However, while checking the link - found out that the following maps are supported in this unit (PolNav, Igo, Route66, Tom-Tom etc). And I found few links for download of these maps also. However, am not sure if they would cover India as much as SatGuide or MapMyIndia maps do or do they all use the same map?
In the other team-bhp link that someone had posted, I can see that for CASKA unit, they had used SatGuide maps.


@Chethan : The speakers look really nice and worthy for the money spent. Did the drill cause any untoward damage?? I hope not....



P.S : I have also booked a Polo TDI Highline. The decision have got delayed by couple of months due to some official engagement. However, the waiting period is quite a difficult one. Anybody with bright ideas on overcoming this waiting period? I guess, visiting VW showroom regularly and TDing polo would help....

Caska uses SatGuide. Dealer in Bangalore was claiming that his unit looks exactly like Witson! I am visiting him to have a look. He has one made for Jetta. Let us see!

No holes were drilled to fix the speakers. Drilling was done to take out the rivets. These rivets are made out of aluminum and are soft. It comes off easily. Bit used was one size less than the rivet, so nothing to worry.

So - Polo fever has ended up raising your temperature?! The more you visit the showroom & Team-BHP, the temperature will raise further. I hope you know that one can even die, because of high temperatures!!

Continue with your official engagement all the more! That is the only remedy - But, will not be successful!!!

PS: We all have gone through this. Now, you are getting a chance to experience it!!!

Kiran, TD the Vento to have some fun!

Agree with Chetan - the wait only gets worse as you keep reading and dreaming of your Polo. In my wait, I was tempted several times to go and talk to any Polo owner on the road, and tell him how good a buy he had... oh well. Welcome to the gang. I think the waiting period should reduce now. I keep seeing a huge number of Polos every time I visit my dealership!

An OT comment - whatever happened to the Micra? Seems to have disappeared rather quietly?

I don't know if you can answer this question but i was wondering if its possible to fit a golf set in the boot of the Polo.
I cannot fit it in my swift or Ritz. Would be interesting to know if the Polo (which will be my next car) can accommodate it!

Entire set can go in if you fold a seat (40% split). This is how a VW-Golf is seen in the UK ads - Is it not? In this case - 3 adults, including the driver, can sit comfortably inside Polo.

I hope this answers your question.
