Default Re: Volkswagen Vento TSI with mods & accessories – My institution for learning

Sharan,

Can you share the part # of the Calliper set (for BBK) and also the source from where you procured it? I plan to procure other parts for BBK installation from Chennai once the lockdown and travel restrictions are lifted. If you can share the garage where the work was done will be helpful so that I can plan to get it installed in the same place. Also please share the total cost for this setup.

Thanks
Luke

I don't remember the part number. I got it as a bolt on set from germany and its not available anymore with them. I know a few who have imported and selling locally. Get in touch with me I will try to help you source it. 95515-01010

Looking at all these mods, I really regret trading in my vento last year. If only I could have come across some similar thread during the time that I owned it, it would have really helped to make some well thought out decisions!

It seems that the dash cam you are using is DDPAI.

Can you please share your review on the same? I am planning to buy one.

Appreciate your response.

Yes it is. I didn’t buy it for its performance rather for its understated looks. Quality and clarity seems alright for a dash cam although I find the app really slow and a little confusing while scrolling. For its use case I don’t mind the issues.

I am very interested in upgrading my front disc brake rotor size. What all exactly will need to be changed to mainly increase the disc rotor size only. Can the stock calipers be used or do they've to be changed too? I earlier also had a 2011 POLO 1.2 Tdi and never had to change the brake rotors or felt any lack of braking ability for the 120000 kms that I drove it before selling off. I'm not sure whether it was the rotor size difference or outright difference in quality of rotors that made this difference. Till 2013 vw polo and vento had most of their parts imported from Germany. Its after the localisation in 2014 and independence given to vw India that the quality levels dropped and the suspension tuning went for a toss that ruined the high speed stability of VW cars. Especially polo and vento. I'm not sure about the higher segment.

can you share the Sachs shock absorber number that you replaced the oem socks with? I was mainly looking to upgrade the rear shocks only first to observe the ride quality difference and then think about the front ones if need be. There are multiple Sachs rear shock absorbers with different numbers that are listed as compatible with the vento and no available info as to the differences between them.

Sharan,
A quick question for you. When you had your older stock headlamps fitted with the Philips H7 LEDs did you face any problems with heating? Also, where did you source these bulbs from (Amazon?). IIRC, the highbeams were kept stock right?

Didn’t face any problems with light scattering nor with heating. I bought them off Amazon. My high beams were halogen.

Hey sharan1988, That is an exhaustive list of upgrades you have carried out on your TSI and must say tastefully done. BTW,I finally ended up finding your thread on the TSI.

Like you suggested on my thread earlier, I have sourced the euro spec air guide channel for my GT TDI. Will be doing a DIY over the weekend to see if it aids my remap draw more horses out from the engine.
