Congrats on your new drive, the gap looks odd is it just a panel gap or does it serve any purpose ?

Thank you!

It’s just a gap in the panel doesn’t serve any purpose. I guess it’s a issue with the mould since others also have posted the same gap in the panels.

I have been shifting to N when coming to a complete stand still and engaging the handbrake if the wait is more than 20-30 seconds or I’ll just use the brakes.

The service schedule for the car is 1 month / 1,000kms, 6 months/7,500kms and 1 year/15,000kms. Any idea from when have they added the 1 month/1,000kms checkup? For my last car, it was just the 6 months checkup and 1 year service.

What are some of the good graphic patterns on a white GT TSI? Where can you get them in Delhi?

In Jan 2019. 1 Month checkup is just an introduction to create your service account. They call it the Swagat check up or something like that. I'm quite certain they don't do anything to the car. They might use this opportunity to sell you some addons Eg: extended warranty, and give you some freebies Eg: Car Cleaning Kit. They also use this opportunity to have a good look at you who they plan to fleece in future. You may use this opportunity to start complaining about any niggles.

Waste of time. So is 6-month service which should be just a thing of the ancient past.

No, the 6 month service is still on the list. Yeah the 1 month service is a waste of time. I don't mind the extra "service" as for me it is just a 20 min walk over couple of hills back home from the service centre. Consider it free exercise.

It is the same here as well. The service guys usually don't entertain any VCDS coding.
It sure does seem that the stock setup does not have the feature, although I'm perplexed that the car does beep if you turn the indicator on when the car is off..Did they just forget to disable this?

How're the mods holding up? I've read your thread, and the bi-xenons are drool worthy!

I was hoping that the new Polo would come with DRLs (at least). If that was the case, I would've loved to upgrade to those, if it was possible. But from the spy pics, it doesn't seem that there's going to be any change in the headlight design.

I tired that as well. It doesn't work.
Ignition off -> key out -> turn indicator stalk to left/right -> there's an intermittent beep, but the corresponding pilot light does not light up.

On a separate note,
I ordered the euro-spec air guide, and have installed it on the stock air filter setup. I did feel some difference, the car seems to climb to speed more easily than before.
The part costed ~Rs. 1200/-

That is very odd! What does your owners manual say?

That's cool. Can you share some installation guide or pictures? I'd like to see how to do this, I've already got the part but haven't got my hands dirty as yet.

Hello guys,

I just realised that the overspeeding warning has to be fitted on all cars manufactured from the 1st of July.

With respect to that, can anyone confirm if their new Polo comes with the warning?

And is there a way in general to disable the system? I don't ever see myself doing over 100 in any car, but something about this just irks me to no end.

The new Polo will definitely have the warning chime. My recent conversation with the SA confirmed it. But hopefully the germans will have a decent chime rather than an irritating buzz.

Fingers crossed!

Hello Lionell,

Thank you for your response, I really appreciate it.

On a related note, would you also know if the upcoming facelift would have the new 1.0 3 cylinder engine?

The 3 cylinder engine and the speed warning were the reasons I was willing to go for the current, pre facelift version. But with one out of those two things gone, my confidence is wavering. Just yesterday, news outlets have picked up images of camouflaged Polos/ Ventos undergoing testing.

That dreaded day finally arrives. Fear that was always present at the back of my head came right in front staring in my eyes.

Gearbox Mechatronic failure!!
Dec-2014 Model, 42,700Kms only. No remap done ever and followed rules to the T(Shift to neutral at signals etc. etc.)

I was driving from Bandra Kurla Complex towards Andheri at around 7pm when there was a slight jerk and the CHECK ENGINE light flickered only to realise that the car would not go beyond D2.

Fortunately, the car did not stall. I put the gear in tiptronic mode and the only gear changes i saw was from 2 to 4 which meant the clutch that shifted gears 1,3,5 and 7 had gone kaput.

I managed to drive and drop the car at VW Autobahn, Goregaon Workshop. Workshop was shut by then.

i have opted for the Addon warranty in December 2018. Hopefully the damage should be covered. I will speak to the workshop tomorrow morning and keep you'll posted.
