On your previous post, you had uploaded pictures of the standard seat covers carried by the dealers. Can I know how much you paid for it? The dealer in Chennai is asking Rs. 7650. It is basicaslly imitation leather so it seems quite a high price for that.

Generally, they seem to be charging full price as printed on the part.

Your response is appreciated sicen I have to decide by this weekend about the seat covers...
Rs. 7,400

The car looks very elegant in White. I really like white on the Polo. Which dealership did you get the car from?

In between I saw my first Black Polo near punjabi bagh today. It was all black, with dark tints and silverish number plate..looked too wicked.

Wish you all the best. Take care and Drive safe.

it's got me a little confused. It's suppose to be 29 PSI right? it's generally just me driving around! i think the guy at the Service station had done 32 PSI, will get it checked today itself
Yes, more the load, more the pressure.

32 should be fine too - no harm done.

Hi Sid, I also got the bite from the wiper. Can something be done about this? How to clean wiper blade? Are you planning to touch up the blemish?

This may be a design flaw which is already present even on Jetta. The wipers neutral position is deep below the bonnet line.

There is a key combination to be used for bringing the blades to it's halfway on the windshield which my driver is aware of. Had just observed at VW service center once. It was something like, ignition to stay at OFF position, lift and hold the wiper lever for 3 seconds and simultaneously turn the ignition to it's ON position.

If this procedure does not work, please consult with your VW dealer for the correct method. This may be a design flaw, but VW has already engineered this to a solution with a complicated process.

Hope the above information is helpful.
