The pin is on the left side of the HU i guess. Will try this method and update.

I had been contemplating about Xenonplanet for long time. But after reading not so nice feedbacks from fellow team-bhp members, had to look for some other options(like morimoto). Unfortunately, I could not find a good installer(for morimoto) in Bangalore.

Have heard that Xenonplanet does not have right connectors. Do they have connectors now. Can you please share your experience with Xenonplanet? It would be great if you could share some photos of the engine bay.

My experience with XP has been a little below average. Their products are good, but their installer isn't that great at least in Mumbai. I had to get my headlights opened thrice because of a wire shorting issue in the projectors and this was purely an error by the installer.

Yes, they do not have the connectors and so I invested in a Morimoto HID wiring kit.

Default Re: Volkswagen Polo : Test Drive & Review

Hello All,

I would need your help with a certain thing in my polo.

I am observing a certain whistling sound while turning at speeds of around 15 kmph. We have different levels of parking at office and in the evening while taking the car out from one level to the other, the turn is inviting and so i don't slow down(from 15kmph). It is here that i clearly hear the whistling sound and this is similar to the sound of the wind at an elevated place. This happens every evening. I managed to hear this a couple of times at places where it is quiet.

Could someone tell me what is wrong?

Thanks & Regards
Bharath

After my first service, I see that the trip meter that records the time doesn't count the time when the engine is switched off. It only records the On time of the engine.
Have any of you observed this? Is it normal?
I was of the impression the car the trip meter's 1 would record the engine off time also and it is used in the average speed calculation.

That is how it has been since the launch of Polo/Vento in India.

Hi Epic,

Plastic parts in this picture are shining, does the dressing used on these parts act as magnet for dust?

Regards.

I have not had any issues of dust accumulating on the plastic parts. But then, my car is thoroughly washed every alternate day which includes cleaning of the plastic parts like front mesh grills, etc so cant say really. But I do believe that detailers have a common spray which they use for tires and plastic parts which do tend to attract dust.

Volkswagen introduces the 1.0L MPI engine in Polo,

Volkswagen Polo : Test Drive & Review-po.jpg

The new 1-litre petrol engine will replace the 1.2-litre all the naturally aspirated petrol powered variants of the Polo.

The 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine option in the Polo GT TSI will continue to be offered.

Wow, as if the 1.2 was some stonker, here comes another great innovation . That torque figure is closer to an Alto K10 or Kwid than anything we expect in this class. That too on a car weighing double.

Why couldn't they have just plonked the 1.0 TSI instead, at least that would've garnered some interest.

Like it or not, this will be the standard engine configuration of the NEXT GEN Polo for India, of course the car will be a bit lighter than the current Gen.

The 1.2 MPi at least used to offer a decent driveability, now VW has made sure that the only USP also gets lost. The need of the time was 1.0 TSi and they gave us the 1.0 MPi!

What an Irony, a Polo that cant keep up pace with the new engine is called the Polo Pace. Looks like some fired employee from Maruti responsible for so many special editions ended up in VW India.

A TSI engine with a manual transmission would have worked wonders to the sales chart of the POLO. it is sad that what seems obvious to us consumers, doesn't strike the management of volkswagen india. Volkswagen have been here for around a decade and Are the Germans satisfied with the sales of their products??
