16. Larger Disks for the brakes
17. Full under-body cover

I too was faced with the same question a few months back and chose the RS. You may come close by adding your own accessories....but it cannot be the same finish etc...

If you want to have all the goodies which RS comes with then its better to buy an RS rather than buying Rider and modifying it.

I own a Rider and would certainly not go for the RS if I was given the opportunity...its "almost" the same package....and for a lesser price. I would rather modify the Rider than buy an RS and mod it..It would also be cost effective.

This is what i used to feel its better to buy RS coz it looks hot and all. But on thinking again ... if i buy Rider Turbo which has same engine as RS ... and engine is the heart ... i dont care what seats im sitting on or what wipers i have on my car ... the rest of the money i can use it on my Rider for performance upgrade .. at the end of the day my car will be faster ... and thats what i want

Perfect recipe to spank the RS.

If i were to have to make this decision, it would rest on two questions -

1. Do the Rider & the vRS have the same suspension setup?
2. Do the Rider & the vRS have the same braking system?

Sadly i havent managed to get verified answers on this from a trustworthy source as yet.

Rehaan,

1. The RS has exactly the same suspension as the rider.
2. I do remember reading somewhere that it has bigger discs? Not sure about that...but it does have ABS!

The Vrs susspension is different from the Normal 1.9tdi ..
its a bit stiffer .....


The front disc brakes are the same as the normal tdi
whereas the the Vrs has discs on the rear and the tdi does not


now i would come to think the rider and the Vrs will have the same brakes and the same suspension ....

only difference will be the gizmo's


but the gizmo's are quite helpful ..... like the rain senstive wipers and the xenons ....

after market xenons are no match for the OEM ones ...

they cost 44,000 for a single headlight + 11,000 for a single xenon bulb

so that is almost a lac for the headlights alone ...

if you like the bells and whistles .... the Vrs is a steal when compared to the Rider .....
