Hi all,
Now the first sad incident occured on my vento.
I just realized , the VW logo (wheel cap) on the front left wheel is missing.
Not sure how did happend, some one stolen or just fell off .
Now i can i get it fixed, does the service center sell these caps?

Hey phani,

you can find them at service centres...this problem of missing logos has plagued VW and skoda owners a lot.

cheers

I think so ,as one of fellow vento owner has fitted one from service centre during his first service and i can see from the bill it could cost around 500 .

How did you manage to get this done? Was it done at the the service station for you or is there a setting for this in the MID?

Also, the pics are real crisp! The rear 3/4th of a black VW Vento is to die for!

Setting a speed limit can be done yourself, by cycling through the options available on the MID, using the button on the right control stalk. I think it has been detailed in one of the threads somewhere, plus it is there in the user manual IIRC.
I would have explained it here, but I dont remember the procedure correctly and I am miles away from my car as well!

Thank you guys! It's crystal clear now! It's facinating how many hidden features one can find in a European car..

Long time not updated the thread.
Done 32km since 2012 march.
It has been a wonderful association all along, absolutely love whenever I hit highways.

Done 2 services and couple of workshop visits For minor rear bumper dents.

Recently got new footwear and went with tbhp suggestion here. Michelin p3st . I can clearly see a big difference positively.
Super quite and comfort.
Some pics shot today..
