Hey man, what about handling charges?
I think from your post that no mandatory accessories were forced upon you by the dealer? Can you confirm?

Hi Avon - Excellent write up !!! - Many observations mentioned. - After reading the Ownership posts, I am not even worried about 3-pot Petrol engine & riding a Polo in B2B Bangalore traffic.
I have few clarifications
1. About 'Travel or accommodation due to immobilization or theft.....' - I did not even know such kind of situation arises and dealer will provide support us in those cases (may be my knowledge is poor) - When could that happen ? - If we see suddenly our car missing from Parking lot ??? - can you please clarify
2. About 'HL music system' - I think HL music system will not come up with USB/AUX - Can we get Company fitted Integrated music system including USB/AUX for extra bucks ?
Few things worries me -
RTO charges are more in Bangalore - I started with 5L budget for my first car - and now have to stretch to 5.5 for OTR Bangalore !!! - Totally dropped plan of getting alloys now !!!
Other things that bother me - height of clutch (could manage with Tip provided by Chetan) & A.S.S - Polo numbers are growing more on Indian roads and Dealerships are not growing that fast and with Ventos coming in - could be a huge rush at the Dealerships .

Adi - Subaro123 is correct, RTO charges inclusive of handling charges. For Pune RoadTax of 7% on ex-showroom price = 31k + number plate etc, which makes approx.5-6K extra. I noticed this extra charges for all manufacturers I visited - Hyundai, Maruti, Tata, GM, Ford.

But I believe individual can also do the registration themselves, in that case this extra money can be saved.

I suppose yes, theft is theft be it from parking lot.

2. About 'HL music system' - I think HL music system will not come up with USB/AUX - Can we get Company fitted Integrated music system including USB/AUX for extra bucks ?

I don`t think so.

Service interval is 1 year or 15K KMs and why only Polo, today morning I saw 2 Ventos on road with temp. registration nos., not sure if its driven by customers or showroom personnel. Also, read somewhere VW is planning to launch taxi in India

Thanks for the reply. 5-6K is ok for . The Hyd dealers are charging a whooping 12.5K for handling and they are also forcing some mandatory accessory package worth 10K odd, even if you do not want to take it.

hey avon ,

if we go by the accessory list provided by vw , the double din with 4 speakers cost more than 10K . So I hope that the one that you got was something which one of the vw polo highline owner gave back to the dealer and he sold it to you . Please confirm .

In case you had mentioned this before , and i missed it , Please pardon me .

anyway , Its a deal . The OEM music players gels well with the interiors and give an extra premium feel .
Enjoy , hope to hear good fuel efficiency figures :-)

cheers

Yes you are correct, this is how I got it. At least in Pune if you would like to have 2DIN music system with 4 speakers from VW dealership it would cost you 22300/-.

I opted for this, it looks good but please note it is without aux/usb. I am not a music buff, so all my favorite songs comes within 2 CDs and then FM is always there. The quality is good but not extraordinary and neither bad. Also, I wasn't keen on setting any electrical parts outside dealer.

Thanks for the quick reply . Defintely its been the talk of the town that the vw oem music system does not come with usb or aux . To be frank you wont even be able to get a double headset for 10k ( a bit exagerated , i think the 6050 UB comes under 10 k ) .But add the speaker cost to it , well it would well go over 10k .

Can someone confirm the cost of the oem parcel tray? I was quoted rs 3000, which is a far cry from 1232.

@AvonA7 are you using two mats one Fabric (black) one and other transparent. If yes then does it improve high clutch pedal problem. Did u get everything from VW dealer.

What about the seat covers, are you planning for one.

Yes, I am using two mats. Actually there are 3 - noticed that once the fabric mat is removed - A. there is 1 additional padding just below the 3 pedals - B. then fabric mat (black color) - C. last is the transparent mat.

B & C are optional and we can use both or either or none, what I am trying to say here is the extra padding already provided in the car.

With all these 3 also I feel Clutch is a bit high and travels l o n g.
Transparent mat wasn't available with the dealer.

Seat Covers initially I planned to manage for at least 6 months, but the plastic covers are removed and the fabric beige coloured seats will get dirtier sooner than later.
Not much impressed with the one available at dealer (VW Accessories), checked the Stanley Seat Covers (at the dealership while work was going on in a car) - single colour - 18K, double colour - 19K, pure leather and liked them, but out of my budget.
Whats your plan regarding seat cover?

Congrats on the Polo purchase. The Red color Polo really looks nice and by the way a nice gift to your wife.

Enjoy many more miles with the Polo.
