re: VW Polo (2010 - 2013) : Rear head-restraint replacement
Received the head rests but in black shade but thatís fine since I have to get them reupholstered anyway. Cost me Rs. 2200 as the service advisor had promised. Here's the invoice copy:
Part number - 6RG 885 901C 83V
The rearward visibility through the IRVM has greatly increased as a result. Plus, I have swapped the IRVM to the auto dimming one - more on that in my ownership thread along with some other minor upgrades. Later.

Re: VW Polo (2010 - 2013) : Rear head-restraint replacement
Going by Gannu_1's example i replaced the rear head rests on my vento. Ordered them from the show room and got them in a couple of weeks. The design is way more comfortable and the rear view is considerably better. The head rests i got were in black fabric and i got it upholstered at one of the shops lining the milan subway. It cost me about Rs.1000 and though the colour matching was good the stitch and fit were not satisfactory. Need to get it redone from elsewhere when i get a chance. Please give me a heads-up if anyone knows a good outfitter in mumbai.
The prongs of the head rests were too long to fit the vento and i had to reduce the length by 3 inches for it to fit comfortably. I got this done at a nearby lathe.
When fitting the new headrests remember to insert the key into the slot on the left for it to go in smoothly. Total expense on this - Rs.3200
