Ah, the road looks like its right next to my old house near Belapur fort. Congratulations on the purchase.

You should definitely go for the extended warranty, trust me (VW Polo owner) and be careful of potholes. I've had major issues with the oil sump due to the low sung car.

Congrats on your ride. Small query, doesnot the 2014 models come with different alloy wheel design?
The design in you car seems are of prefacelift. Does the 2014 GT variants still continue to sport older design?

Yes. The GTs have black interiors and pre-facelift Alloy Design.

The website also shows that GTs get the old alloys.

Good review Sir. It's indeed a great car to drive. The dynamics itself are best in its class and when mated with this engine and DSG, it makes a great combination. I hope you enjoy every moment of driving this machine. And great seat cover as well. Share some more seat cover pics with us.

Congratulations inomad on the GT Tsi. The refreshed model looks good but wish they provided cruise control and the arm rest from the factory. I have been using one for 18 months now and its a pleasure driving around in our traffic congested cities.

Congratulations inomad on buying the best hatchback on the right side of 10 lakhs.

I agree that one should not test drive the GT TSI unless you are ready to buy. I did and am still dreaming about it. Ignorance is bliss here! To add to all that there are Robimahanta and prithvi's threads which make you lust after the TSI even more.

Please get the remap done soon and then you'll have even more go than show.

Glad to see more colour options on the GT versions.

Your photography skills are pretty awesome and so is the location. Is this Parsik hill?

Have fun and drive safe!

P.S. I want to change the Vento with this one and dad wants the new Vento (primarily for the boot space and little more rear seat space). Till that argument is settled threads like these will keep me going!

May be you could also plan for the following upgrades
- Upgrade the light bulbs to "Osram night breaker unlimited"
- If possible also install the underbody cover(engine/sump guard). Available with VagTune.

Can you please share some more photos of the seat cover?
Thanks for appreciating.

How much would the under body cover cost?

I would soon post more seat cover pics.

Cheers!

Cheers!
