A European thing? I don't know. But it is definitely most prominent in the VW & Skoda cars. Heck, my antique Mahindra Jeep doesn't have it!
cable vs hydraulic clutch??

Ohhh man...Shadow blue looks stunning. I think this is the colour to go for in Vento, besides White, IMHO.

Thats what I am planning and hoping for!!!

On Shadow blue Vento, its the same as the one in Jetta and you will find lots of Jetta pics. But the ones that we see around here are mostly Jetta Blue Graphite. Shadow blue Jetta is also not very common, i guess.

Congrats Abhinav! Love the Jaguar freshener! Also the seats look great, are they Jetta leather seat covers or Stanley? Let us know. Also the color looks awesome, specially since I've booked Silver as well

Cheers

Thanks guys, many have been fooled by the seat covers..those are actually art leather ones I got for Rs. 6000 from Automarc, Defense Colony

The jaguar airfreshner is from ebay. Other things I added are 3M tints, Carpet+Transparent mats, Paint Protection treatment, Door Guards and LED bumper guards also Parking sensors from VW (they suck) and rear spoiler. Plan on getting a Witson HU and Upgrade the Bulbs.

Also the Shadow blue Vento would look something like this:

Guys - any views on the new Kizashi? Looks suck but 230 Nm torque @ 4k rpm and 2.0L engine are not bad specs.CBU ensures it will be around 18L on road

Congrats Abhinav and I must agree on the suckiness of the VW reverse sensors. They beep wildly for no reason and sometimes don't warn you when there is an actual obstacle! To be honest I don't need e'm and only installed these so that it helps the wifey, but now am worried even more. Much better to go with the rear camera as after market accessory, IMHO.

Thats OT dude. There is a separate thread for Kizashi. You can get all the information there.
