Yeah! that is another worry of mine. Probably, I will have to get good transparent mats, and be careful every time I sit in car, and more so if it is raining :(

Thanks a lot for the prompt response bro. This will help me plan now.

4 months is a considerable waiting period, especially for such a good car.

Just took delivery of the Silver coloured VW Vento 1.6 AT. Dad booked the car in Nov '10 and we got it today (Thanks to L&T). Pictures will follow this weekend.

Sahil,

Please post the snaps of the interiors once you have the Stanley seats. Would also appreciate if you can share the price.

Hi!
How much did you pay just for switching from drums to disc brakes at the back?

Somehow the last pic resembles a SX4. Could you post the torque curves before and after mod?

The wheels although nice in design only look good in close-up. However, with the car, they look a tad bit "over-blown".
With regards to mods, 130HP, if true, sounds too good!

Well that is a totally achieveable number. The stock car is 105 Bhp, so a 25% increase with the tuning box is nothing out of the ordinary. But YES the car is a stonker in stock form, think about what it'd be with the added horses & torque





Cheers
