This is awesome! Let's have a Vento meet! So we already have 2 blues, 1 white and 1 black!

How about Saturday? I am free for the whole day.

Nilesh, quite late to spot this thread, but not too late to congratulate you. Congratulations!

The blue shade is awesome. Here in their Singapore, they are quite heavily marketing the New Jetta, and almost all the billboards have it in the same blue colour as of your Vento, and it looks so close to the New Jetta

The time is fine with me. Can we select a place which can be used for some nice photo sessions? I am not so knowledgeable about Bangalore so anything you suggest should be fine with me.

No worries Araman. We will meet again after the delivery of your Vento!

Hey, thanks @vb-san. Yes, the Blue looks like a smaller 2011 Jetta. And that's why I love the colour as well. It has a premium & regal feel to it!

Thanks Nileshch. I have called them everyday, even think of the delivery day in my dreams. Keep reminding myself, this will be the year (i.e 2011). Looking forward to the Vento meet.

@Nilesh, great car,great accounts-and above all a great driver who enjoys every moment of the ownership experience. I am sure the blue beauty is having a great time.

Your long drives just leave me fantasising- I would like to venture out for such long ones.Will manage in near future. Your lovely looked very beautiful after the wash.Fabulous colour-I am chanting again,very refreshing.

When are those fabulous alloys coming on? Have you installed the 3D Kagu mats,yet?

That has to be the best color on vento, the car looks very classy. Congratulations man. I wish this color was available on SWIFT.

Very good upgrade from a ZEN to VENTO. Hope you have gone thru the basics of driving a diesel car.

Thanks, charthom. The Blue sure is having a great time! The alloys might take some time. However, the 3D mats were bought immediately after the delivery! I have posted the picture in the ownership review.

Thanks, F150! Yes, TBHP left no stone unturned in educating me on driving diesel cars! I had ample time before the delivery to go through the various threads on this.

Of course,Nilesh.Sorry for forgetting. The snap you have posted does not do justice to the 3D.Can you post more,front/ back. Many people are interested in knowing about black 3D mats. How dirty do they get? How do you clean them?
