Congrats, Canpush on your Polo!

I am familiar with the area -- Sangamner, Nasik & Shirdi -- though I haven't been there in a long, long time.

Regarding the sound, I started noticing some sound after I put in the art leather Polo seat covers. To me that appeared to be the sound of the 40-60 split seats brushing against each other. Haven't heard it recently though.

Is the door creating the sound or is it the seats or is it something else all together?

Chethan B. G. got me H4 Philips X-treme power bulbs and they promise 80% more light. Am planning to get that fitted sometime this weekend.

From your post, I came to know that you had owned a Fiat Palio Diesel in the past. So, I'm curious to know the reason why you chose a petrol VW Polo over a diesel. Or, is this your secondary vehicle?

Btw, you didn't mention the color of your VW Polo. I hope that you'll upload the pictures at the earliest.

Drive safe. Always wear seat-belts

I have already posted my report on Polo on Page 1 you can see pictures also.

I have also posted Palio long term review Palio Long Trem Review (Fiat Palio 1.9 D: 7 years, 65000 km review) But I have sold this.

The reason I changed to VW because a) I was not happy with FIAT Grand Punto build quality. b) I realised that my running has reduced to less than 1000 km per month. Hence paying 75-80k more for Diesel vehicle was not worth it. Even then I would have gone for diesel but GP Emotion+ I found not worth the cost and Swift diesel does not provide Airbags. By the time I booked Ford Figo was not available for Test drive.

Further after using FIAT for 7 long years I preferred european cars over korean say i20 for their sturdyness. i20 is still quite new. We can talk about its sturdyness after 5 years in service. Other Hyundai cars are not sturdy enough.

I always use seat belts and I was keen to get other safety features like airbags, ABS, EBD, etc.
