    It's funny to hear it coming from people. I know someone who wants to buy a car in the 20-25L category but mileage is one if his primary concerns! Meanwhile his running is also normal and not egregiously high

    I Know, people prefer touch screen over airbags, can't help man, just say good thought I agree, and move on. I only fight with my close friends or family, dont care about others.

    I'll check the part number for Polo but now I am kinda into Virtus. Definitely considering it, does any of the mods void the warranty?

    How much does it cost to make such mods, for the ones you did to Vento without part swap?

    Well you tamper with ECU so ya warranty technically gets void, but you can always reflash the stock ECU back before claiming any warranty claims. That said initially drive on standard power it is close to 150 bhp that is anyway way above 104 bhp you get now. Once you are boerd we can do the remap.

     

    If you just want to do Stage 1 that is ECU remap, it depends on tuner, can cost anything from 15k - 25K depending how good the tuner is and wuality of tune. Stage 2 you will need to change few parts.

    Can you elaborate about mod potential?

    I didn't know about Virtus and having driven a VW car, I was expecting a downgrade as I didn't like Taigun and its bland interior but Virtus looks good with enough features + better media centre.

    If this drives well then I might just consider this. Although VW's service is not that great when it comes to spare parts, they phased out our Polo's brake sensor and now at the age of 8 years, can't get it fixed.

    But that is the beauty of polo you can easily get it from outside, it’s a car which has sold by truck loads in the world. Let me know which part number I might be able to source it for you.


    Regarding mods you can easily remap the engine, get better suspension setup, for polo you can swap parts with GTi model, potential are endless.

     

    My vento is running on stage 2; and is on around 132 bhp with around 235 torque, stock is 104 bhp and 175 nm torque, so you can gauge the difference. My car also has launch control and updated DSg software too ;)

     

    if you want to know more feel free to Pm me.

    VW DSG cars are fantastic. The recent 1.5 DSG Kushaq/Taigun put a smile on my face when I did a test drive. Brilliant engine and gearbox combo. 

    Ya I am gonna drive the virtus once it is out, the car looks fantastic and has the same gear combo, not to forget the mod potential. The gearbox and engine can be easily tuned to get almost 20-30% more power.

    Peeps, the SA just called and said they have been alloted a different color of the same variant I'm looking for without any booking. He said it's leaving the factory today, and they'll get it within a week - I can the paperwork for loan etc during this time in case I want this color, and I can sign the papers post PDI. 

    Seems sus ? Normal ? Buying a car after 15 years, and I'm not updated with current practices. 

    What things I should look for ?

    Ask for VIN, decode manufacturing date if it is march, you are good.

     

    Regarding DSG it’s fantastic, TC is good but no where as much fun, yes it is prone to failure, take maximum extended warranty, I have kept some money aside if it fails now since warranty is over. If an option I will buy DSG every time. This is VW group DSG I am talking about though, I have not driven the Dsg from other manufacturers and not sure how they are tuned:

  7. Ravindra Jadeja will lead Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming IPL 2022, after MS Dhoni, who has led the team since the first season of the tournament, in 2008 - bar the two years when the team was banned - announced his decision to step down from the leadership position.

    The franchise confirmed the news on their website, adding that "Dhoni will continue to represent Chennai Super Kings this season and beyond".
