'Finallay'. I thought i'd reserve my comments when you reveal your choice. Phew, thanks for letting the cat out of the bag, the suspense was killing me. And congratulations! The Polo is a good solid car and i can vouch for the India mfg/assembled cars, i own a Vento AT. As their tagline in the 80's, driving a VW sure is Fahrvergnügen

Congrats Sam(R) for the new addition! As usual, your writing style leaves one wanting more..

I'm guessing the Pepper Gray got the upper hand as we men seldom win colour arguments with our ladies. Also, it looks a lot more regal in my opinion when compared to the bright red.

Looking forward to the continued narration.

Merry Christmas!

So as i understand the color is still not decided, so which one is it Sam Pepper grey/red. The way i look at it, both colors looks awesome anyway. Congratulations again on red/grey polo.

TheOne has good taste (yeah I know we've established that already ) Pepper grey is a super colour and I was cursing VW for not offering it on the Vento.

Lol, my bad. I completely forgot about that part. Yes of course ICEing too. What did you think?

Once again I thank all of you for all your affection and appreciation.

I am not playing the suspense game with you - I am with family in Germany celebrating a traditional Christmas and doing all the things one does in the festive season.
I apologise for this interval and will continue soon.

Won't make you wait too long. Pleas bear wiith me.

And since today is a special day, from us to your family and friends, a merry Christmas.

Merry Christams! Rather, Happy Boxing day!

Nice choice for sure. If it is the Pepper Grey, then even better. IMO, that color looks perfect on the Polo. That and the red too. Lol!

Now, as you get time, how bout a pic or two?

Hi Sam,
Good choice indeed.... preceded by a riveting narration in true Kapasi style.

Being a satisfied Skoda owner, I thought you would be ending up with the Fabia for TheOne. It remains a mystery to me and hope you will throw some info on why the Fabia was not considered.

Regards and belated Christmas Greetings

Finally !! The twists & turns of the narrative bettered any suspense thriller

Congratulations on the excellent choice. VW has really upped the ante in terms of the quality what we had been used to especially in the hatch / small car segment.

Am sure TheOne would have never been satisfied with the flimsy jap/korean build.

Keep it rolling Sam.

Never mind all this Polo business. I say, let TheOne be consistent: marry a Yeti. drive a Yeti!

But above all, a late happy Christmas from me too. Hope Germany is not freezing you both.

Probably contributing to the slow fingers Merry Christmas! Very interested in the ICE setup too. Guess there won't be pics of the Polo until the return. ETA?
