Thank fully mine is a 2004 model

ps - you call your car - LAAL PARI ?

As for the FE figures - that figure is the instantaneous one. When you play with the computer, you get the actual figure the car is giving over the complete number of kms it has done. Mine hovers around - 10 L/ 100 Kms
The one i clicked in the pic ( shown earlier ) is average. But i think its a bit wrong
When i drove on a full tank , the car ran 450 km, and had to fill 44 litres of fuel ( FULL-TO-FULL METHOD), but the computer showed me 9L/100km ( 11.1kmpl)

Sometimes i call in laal pari else it is known as the heaven'z devil.

Chic number plates bro and moreover an awesome thread.. coming straight out of the heart. And paleeeez stop giving those FE figures in this VRS thread. Does not do justice to the car. Better if you could give in some timings (0-100, 0-160, 100-160 AND well yea try out this one - 0-219 )

Thanks Nikunj. Better late than never

Body Kit not as of now.
Firstly ICE , BOV, maybe a GPS and then performance mods after 2 years.
Body Kit - Will think after the warranty is over.
Thanks for the suggestion though

Honestly, I don't think the RS needs a bodykit. The stock bumper with the airdam on the front & the spoiler on the back couple with the 16" wheels give it a nice aggressive look.

Unless, you want to go ricer, I don't really see the point of a kit on the RS. Not to mention, I've hardly seen any kit which does not make the car shouty & most of them ruin the appeal of the car.

Save your money & spend it on a remap to 240 bhp & better tyres!

Were they stock fitment? They're decent tyres, comfort biased. And since you've driven them for a bit now you'll get next to nothing exchange value. So, stick to this set & change them for better tyres when you wear them out.

VW's are still running on TDi Pumpe Duse. The new range gets bluemotion tech to meet tougher emission standards. CRDi is on the cards but none of their cars yet run on Crdi's. I don't think even the new Audi A4 has the CRDi yet.

A4 has CRDi . Others have PD
now the new Passat CC will be having a Crdi. ( Company claims that it will have better efficiency and technology )

Well, I'm using 225/50/16 Michelin PP2s. They simply ROCK!!! Bit on the expensive side though, 8k each.
