Facing the exact same issue with my Punto MJD's mileage. Was the spike in fuel consumption during idling narrowed down to be due to EGR getting clogged? My ODO reads ~30k kms, I feel it is a tad too early for EGR cleaning.

Not that much of a difference in the mileage while idling after EGR cleanup, but still checking on city driving. Shall update on it after a week drive in and around city

After a week-long drive in city traffic and that too OMR in Chennai, didn't see any improvements in mileage. Still it is at 12 KMPL, now waiting for service of the vehicle. Shall check at that time.

Went last week to install a BMC Filter for my GT TSI. They knew about BMC Filters and told me BMC is official partners to VW. I didn't even have to get out. Was done in 20 min. They immediately got to work. They cleaned the airbox with wipes as well as cleaned the area with compressed air. 200 bucks.

Why reverted back to stock filter after just 2 months ? To avoid warranty issues at VASS ?

An update on this service center, they have started a new branch, just a week back, quite near the old one. This one is in Semmancherry/Navalur border, adjacent to LenzoMem, and exactly opposite to VV Cars. This one is very accesible and looks very neat, well equiped and spacious.

Ya reverted to stock temporarily because I had to go in for my service and lest they damage it. Back to BMC now.

Thanks for the update. The new one is also under the same management, though I haven't been there yet.

Basically in the KumaranNagar - Padur stretch of OMR, they now have 3 service centres.

I have used the services of ExpertSpanners (Padur) multiple times both for standard services and repairs/maintenance work. I am quite happy with the services offered by them. They seem to have the right people to fix the problems.

The Semencherry garage looks quite neat and spacious compared to the Padur one. The Padur one was refurbished and expanded sometime around May/June of last year and the garage can accommodate more bays now.

There is hardly any Authorised Service Centers south side of Sholignallur except for a M.A.S.S in Sholingnallur. I would expect lot of people taking their cars to ExpertSpanners once their warranty is over.

This may be OT, but one more service center is there. If you take right turn at the Kumaran Nagar junction and take the nookampalayam link road, there is a Titanium Motors Multi brand service center, adjacent to Apple Supermarket. But not sure if it's as good as Expert Spanners.
