I use the BP bunk on 27th Main road, HSR Layout.
These guys, IMO are one of the better bunks in town. Don't do or add anything special.

I was Shocked to see the first 2 pics. Few Diesels can't match these figures.

Prashanth will be able to provide the actual Updated.
Now wait a minute, is that an instantaneous fuel consumption display?

When the car is stationary and engine is idling, isnt it supposed to show these kind of figures anyways?

Nope! That was the average mileage for a 115km trip. Took the pic the pitstop

In the Polo & Vento, the ECU resets the average trip mileage only after 30 mins of non usage of the vehicle.

I have the Polo Highline in the exact same shade and even i have been contemplating to put DRLs. I was actually wondering how they'd look in that honeycomb grill as usually these are put in the fog lamp area. But now looking at your lovely Polo, I am quite excited to get these installed.

Thanks Zohaib! I had always wanted DRL's for the Polo (even though it ain't a functional feature).
Speaking of the honeycomb grill, the installer had to cut into it at both end's in order for the DRL to fit it perfect.

Alright guys! After a month of waiting, I finally got my hands on the GTI grill.

Kindly excuse the pic quality. I'll upload better pics once I'm back in town

Default New Gti grille & DRL's

Over the last couple of months, I've got the Polo fitted with a genuine VW GTi grille & a genuine VW DRL.

Had the OEM fog lamp's replaced with the DRL's.

Let the pics do the talking now

Woah Prashanth, so these were the DRL's you were referring to from a while.

Man, they look PERFRECTLY in TUNE with the GTI Badge!!!

Can't wait to see these in Flesh and probably shoot some snaps post your Alloy upgrade.

Are those LEDs' functional as DRLs or as a replacement for the fogs?

Also I noticed a slight blue tinge in the headlights in your previous set of photos, could you tell me what bulbs you using?
Even I plan to switch the stock bulbs with white light bulbs but really unsure of the performance of these.

How do these DRLs fit in the fog lamp housing? Do they directly connect to the fog lamp wirings?

More importantly, where did you buy these? They look cool on your HOT hatch!

Now your 1.6 is truly the hottest hatch. Did you import the Grill and the DRL?

Cheers!
