Did a quick service at a VAG special garage, Candour Auto Tech. Service quality was top-notch. Just a basic oil and filter change. TAT was under 30 min with a quick underhood clean. Parts were costlier than VW, but all genuine parts. This place was too close and would not charge for removing each and every bolt, so ...... Polo was the smallest car worked there, rest being mostly Mercs.
Only thing I disliked was he used only 3L oil instead of the 4.4L, but level is still showing full in dipstick and no warning lights. Read the whole manual and there is no mention of oil quatity, only mention was checking and topping up every couple of 1000 km. A debatable topic. Still gonna trust that guy. Checking level regularly.
Engine Oil ₹ 3,750.00 (Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 3L)

Air Filter ₹ 950.00
AC Filter ₹ 725.00
Oil and Filter Replacements ₹ 550.00
ECU Scan/Service Reset ₹ 550.00
Was in hurry and did not replace diesel filter. Will be replacing in a week or 2.
Got estimate for 90k job. Rear suspension is leaking. V-belt needs preventative replacement. Steering box makes a clicking feel when self centering.

EGR making annoying ticking noise. Gotta check it next time.
Been a fan of STP additives. Bought one for Polo after trying on i20. Tremendous improvement in low end and power delivery (and improved mileage in i20). Been using with petrol engines for like 3-4 years, even @vichu. First time trying on diesel. Price was 350, I believe. I20 guy was behind me to steal this one
