Done 15k km in under 10 months.
Verdict - Rock sold, some niggling issues.
1st gear ruin the ride, skip it, you love it Niggling issues
Brake making weird noise - Fault was fresh tar stuck between brakes.
Rattling doors - Idiots forgot to put back door handle spacers after painting, blamed the poor audio guy, made him refit the door pad twice.
Squeaky rear seat - This problem persist for every who removed rear bench to install seat cover. VW engineer came down to rectify this issue in a friend's dad's Vento, but never rectified. They charged 250+ tax last time for fixing it, but the problem resurfaced a week later, now they saying it can't be rectified for the time being until VW come up with something.
Poor quality wipers - Fog buildup from outside, streaking lines even before car hit its first monsoon. Bought Bosch blades, effective than stock.
Front windows up and rear down means rear windscreen shaking like hell, very irritating and terrible. Design flaw. Burning holes

Returned the excess oil and wind screen washer fluid and old parts. Accident Repair:
Done at Auto Engineers (Bosch Car Care). Dented left rear fender, repainted both bumpers, left ORVM. Changed right ORVM glass (unluckily plain glass).
Total bill -7k. Opted to pay from pocket as the AE guy said no claim bonus will be a bigger sum compared to the claim we get though it had bumper to bumper claim.
(VW charged 10k for painting the mirror and door handles, now quoted 10k for the rear denting alone or FOC under insurance, but car will be with them for 25 days. They declined changing mirror alone, instead they wanted us to replace the full assembly saying internals are damaged. 2k for assembly plus at least 1k for painting plus labour extra. Assembly works fine, only issue is the plain mirror).
Wiper blades - 340
Beige interior is a mess. Took a full can STP foam cleaner to clean the dirt, still lot dirt remain.
