Congrats on your pick ayush1434 and guess what, you have got yourself inducted into the GT CLUB with that.

There is no "Official GT Club" that I am aware of, but I would suggest you to stay tuned to TBHP MEET SECTION on the forum.

You missed this one:

Yes those dual beam headlights are very good. Why don't you try 90/100 bulbs that should take care of it.

Drive on,

No, i don't have any personal experience with yokos, but i know people who have these sidewall punctures on Yoko, also i heard these s-drives gets really noisy after sometime, so i wanted to avoid them.

Congratulations for the new car.

As you mentioned that you have upgraded the horn to VW original dual tone, can you please update on that as I have bought a polo highline myself and is really disappointed with the way the horn sounds.

as per VW gurgaon, second horn can't be fitted due to the recent changes in the car.

Ah ha...now we're talking Supriyo bhai.

I am locked/hooked/fixed/wrapped to this thread now. Considering all the ideas we discussed during the last meet, I have a feeling your GT is going to be one RED HOT HATCH to watch out for on TBHP.

Tried to replace the stock VW logo with the one that i had order, but didn't turn out as i planned.

After a little bit of struggle was able to remove the grille, but found that the clips of the VW logo is different and will not fit into the stock grille.

These are the clips of the VW emblem that i order

And this is how the stock emblem is fitted

Planning to order the GTI grill, but before that will check if i someone is selling the old polo grille.


I am feeling a lot of vibrations in the clutch, is it normal for Polo or i need to get it checked, kindly advise.
