Hi Hemant,

VW did the same during last service. Instead of the usual way of marking dents/scratches in the job card he took picture of the entire car and contents(boot, glove box, instrument cluster). This is better than the manual checklist which cannot capture everything.

Regards.

True and that is exactly the message my signature conveys

Congrats on the year + 20k km mark. Time just flies by. Great to see you pampering the car as usual.
Thanks. But still this car isn't receiving much pampering. So much so that my wife was surprised and asked me once if I'm alright

Seeing your odo, makes me happy - I'm not the only lunatic to drive a petrol hatch when a diesel car would have been far more economical.
Lunatic...Thanks for the compliment

Last weekend, I took the GT to the 5K Interval WA WB at Madhus. Surprisingly the Balancing was perfect. This is even though I had driven over some rough roads last month. Alignment was off by a small margin which was corrected. Since it was a long weekend, the city had less people and hence even Madhus was less crowded. the whole WA and WB exercise took just 45 minutes

One issue I'm facing with it is that of vibrations upon braking from 80kmph or higher. no effect on braking performance however. It is a known problem with the Polo Linked to the Brake Discs wear. Should get it checked.

January saw the car cross 2 milestones-21k and 22k.

The car's running till date is ~55Kms per day and ~1600Kms per month

Today's refill was the car's 50th visit to the fuel station with the ODO at ~22100Kms. Ignoring today's refill, the vehicle has consumed 1770Ltrs of Petrol. That's an average FE of 12.5Kmpl. 22 Times I've got above avg FE and 27 times below avg with the highest being 16kmpl and lowest being 9.9kmpl

I was planning to get it checked in my next service visit. Something must've been wrong before that I checked with my refuel log that I maintain. According to that, after the last refill I've driven 494Kms till now and still there is half a tank full of petrol still remaining. I don't know what is wrong but I'm not complaining

It's actually not that surprising. Modern fuel injected petrols are known to be very fuel efficient if driven with a light foot. (Light being the key word here). Have seen some staggering figures on FB groups.

One request, please don't drive your GT like an MPI. I know you won't do that, but still, you know how a TSI DSG is to be driven right??

Yes I do. If I had to drive like that, I wouldn't have purchased this
