Oh, right! Forgot that for a moment!

So finally someone in VW hierarchy realised that there are people out there who dislike having the colour beige anywhere in their rides and the new GT Tsi is now all black with Grey headliner & trims and the two tone seats as depicted in the already posted pictures. Hmm.. time finally to ride out and book one. No, 'cause now waiting for the Reflex Silver to be added to the colour palette offered. Talk about procrastination

Pursuant to my post above, these just came in. Thought I will share with you guys.

Black Interiors check

Old Alloys. Much better looking than the weird 5 thick 5 thin spoke design that are on the refresh Polo, IMHO.

Per the SA at this dealership, the car came with spoiler in white and the parking sensors installed?? Now the snaps were forwarded to me. Per him this car was offloaded this afternoon, so no time to paint/install etc etc. To me the spoiler looks as if it is covered in masking tape/film, mainly due to the rough edges etc. Maybe the new owner/members can clarify.

Look at the below image, though not in India but does convey the whole point.

Look at the part above the rear door, the same white protective cover is seen.

I know and that is why the confusion. Masking tape does not reflect, here is a close up of the tape that came on my car right here in good old Dilli.

Now on this Polo not only is the spoiler's top surface reflective like a glossy painted surface but the surface underneath is white too. I don't think an OEM would cover the underside.

Guess, this will be resolved only when either an owner posts or someone amongst us gets to see these vehicles in the flesh.

khoj, the spoiler is glossy black irrespective of the car's color for the facelift GTs. The same applies for the door ORVMs as well. I am not sure of the second part i.e. the white surface underneath.

Compared to the white shade of the car, to me it looks like a white film with black spoiler beneath it. Yep, that is definitely a white protective tape covering a black spoiler.

Did some digging and the new Polo and upcoming Fabia in EU is indeed coming with the EA211 1.2TSI motor. They somehow managed to fit it into a PQ25 platform. So i guess VW is using India as a dumping ground for last batches of the EA111 1.2TSI. Also if the new Fabia is launched in 2015, a little birdie tells me that it will definitely get the new EA211 DOHC unit.

Untill then we are stuck with the SOHC EA111 1.2TSI (which is itself a gem of an engine!)

Hello, the new GT comes with the gloss black spoiler, what you see is the protective tape used during transportation. I have just seen a white GT TSI with the masking tape being offloaded while I was at the dealership last week.

A white TSI was delivered last week to a lucky owner in Coimbatore. I can confirm that the ORVMs and spoiler were glossy black.

What I hear is that the Facelifted Polo and the New Fabia are based on a revamped PQ26 platform.

Any major changes in the EA211 1.2 TSI engine?

Facelifted models are same and platform is something which remains same, there maybe difference in features and equipment list. They also had to make the revisions in the platform so that the new platform can accommodate newer VAG engines. Apart from it, the newer platform is more rigid and safer.
