Sorry for the late response as I had been travelling. Will provide the break up / upload the bill soon.

The buzzer costed INR 1500 & was NOT replaced under warranty as the warranty period was over by approx a month (buy date 28th Sep - problem reported date 28th Oct) & it was not covered under extended warranty.

They did provided the pick & drop FOC though (otherwise charging INR 400 for the same).

Was inspecting the tires & they seem to be in an OK shape - looks like atleast another 10K on them. Apart from the road noise on higher speeds, the NCTs have not been a source of major dissatisfaction.

Long time no update from my end - just because everything has been going just smoothly till now (touch wood).

With over 36K on the odo (yes lot less driving & lot more flying around in the past year & half) the car refused to crank a few days back - called up the helpline & diagnosed that the battery had run out.

Got the car jump started & went to the service centre. The battery was well past its prime so battery replaced ~ INR 10K spent (received 1000 for the old battery)

Also one of the LED DRLs that Ayedongivadam that helped fix conked off - but thanks to the nice "training" he had given the first time we had got it done, was able to replace it in a jiffy

Over last ~ 3 years & 24K Kms (90:10 - city:highway @ at almost 100% AC) the av fuel consumption is 13.3 Km / L. This is as measure by tank to tank method tracked using the fuel log app.

The last weekend trip to Mumbai or couple of months back to Goa - the highway efficiency continues to be in high teens & touching 20 at times

The 3rd service got done at it's scheduled time - nothing major to report. Total cost ~ INR 11K.

As the long drives have started picking up have gone for the Road Side Assist - Total cost ~ INR 3300 for 2 years.

Next up to finally get rid of the NCT5s to something better - the did not do so bad after all !!

Still wondering which one to go for Yoko 550V or Michelin ST3 or any others - more from comfort than performance perspective - any suggestions?

Looks like we all are in same boat as far as tyre replacement is concerned. mine has crossed 40K yesterday and third service is coming up in September. One thing i want to ask, did they ask to change brake-pads till now? They checked mine during last service and did not change, but this time i believe they will. Any idea about the costs involved? Also i have extended warranty, so if i go by Brembo performance brake-pads, will it void warranty? Any thoughts?

Not till now, but I guess it might in the next service. A reason could be less running as well as the fact that bulk of the driving has been at "city speeds" with not much sharp braking action except for a couple of times.

Unless you have got the extended warranty, the standard one runs out at 2 years. You can check with the service center on brake pads - VW is usually touchy on warranty.

With my extended warranty running out this Oct am looking to upgrade the headlamps to bi-xenon units - looking for a good place to get it done - driving to Kochi to get it done from VAGTUNE might not be an option

Thanks Vkaul. I am sure brakepads wont be a part of warranty and will be wear and tear part.

Anyhow, i am also looking to change the headlamps to bi-xenon ones, but problem is i have trendline jetta and even VW service center guys in ahmedabad have no idea if it can be done in trendline. I am looking for a complete solution, i.e. changing wiring harness to switches or whatever is required to change the headlamps but no help. Let me know if u get some reputed vendor who does this.

Just go with the P3STs, period.

Yes, I've covered almost 10k on them and they are simply brilliant. I have an initial ownership post which I did after covering 2000 odd kms on them and a short update around 8k kms. Both can be found on the Michelin P3ST thread.

Pirelli superb tires on my high line jetta. Comfy grippy lasts 50k. I have reached 95k on the odo in 2.5 years. Put the tires at 45k they still have 5-7 k in them. But I really watch my tire pressure using a tyredog.

Finally changed the shoes on the Jetta after 38400 Kms. They were starting to get a little less reliable (puncture prone) & have 2 road trips coming up till the end of the year so decided to take the plunge.

Thanks to all the fellow BHPians for their advice. Went with Michelin P3STs for INR 30400 for a set of 4 from Darshan Tyres @ Hadapsar - it is a new one which replaced National Tyres showroom (on the magarpatta road). The work was done quickly & efficiently & Nitrogen filled up.

I am sure the tyres would run in & then it might become better but my first impression of the ride quality is that it has improved IMMENSELY. Also it is a lot quieter & smoother in operation.

Have the first trip coming up this weekend (1000+ Km to Hyd & back) - will share more post the same.

Have completed almost 2500 Kms in last 6 weeks after the new shoes for the Jetta.

The difference in ride quality, comfort & grip is PHENOMENAL.

Have booked the 4th year service - had called them on 5th Jan & got the date of 22nd Jan for the service

The second battery was starting to give trouble - slow cranking & if the car does not start in the single crank, need to give the battery some "rest" before cranking again.

Got it checked & the starting current was falling down to 8. With the upcoming drive to Goa, did not want to take a chance. Got it replaced with Amaron Pro 74 Ah battery - total price 9700. Comes with 30 + 30 months warranty

Edit: The Black Pearl has done 51+ K till now
