The results by hella wipers are much better and VFM compared to those cheap wipers, no matter how any user of cheap wiper tries to convince you.
Hella wipes better, but these "cheapos" are VFM for poor souls like me requiring twice a year wiper replacements due to "no other option than to park in the sun" and hardening rubbers. I vouch these are better any day than the regular Bosch and regular Hella blades. Premium frameless are completely different story.

Then frequent replacement is better than buying the expensive one,right.
Our summer conditions are not so strainy to the rubber.
I think Bosch also lasts quite well.

From experience, Chinese lasts longer than Bosch regular. @Vichu recently replaced Chinese with Bosch and not at all happy with it. I too got regular Bosch on Polo and Beat and Chinese on Estilo. Bosch quality is now horrible from when I started using them some 5-6 years ago. Bosch quality is now equivalent to old crap OEM Syndicate blades.

Your warranty will remain intact until the repair work is 'limited' to body only. Once the mechanicals (onle selected ones), electrical and electronics are touched; the warranty ends.

Thanks a lot for the information TSIVipul, have a few questions will speak them out step by step!!!
Loved the ICE RCD 320 when i saw it in the demo car, when i planned to buy the Trendline i had to pick the RCD 320, as an idiot i didnt even check for the backlight of the system. came to know that it wont glow whatsoever, very risky driving and changing tracks at night
Can it ever be rectified? Posting cars photograph :)

Deville,
I have a 2011 tdi highline 1.2, can i know the average mileage you get?
Sandeep,
the paint used by vw is of high standards, i dont think outside garages use such paint. I do my tinkering and paint jobs with outside shops only since their work is so good, but when it comes to polo iam hesitant, i did my chevy spark in a outside garage and it was so good.

Recently crossed 86k. Still going smooth. Only the service bills are giving heart attacks.

VW battery seems to have set life of 2 years. Bought car in November 2011. First battery dead in November 2013 and the second one in November 2015. Bought AMaron FLO this time. 2+2 year warranty. Price was 5.6k, if I remember right.

Coolant level was dropping slightly for some time and recently it started dropping tremendously. Refilled with almost 3 L coolant, which vanished in just a test drive. Diagnosed packed up water pump.

Water Pump 03L121011P ₹ 6,100.00
Coolant G013A8JM1 ₹ 1,482.00

Coolant Pump Replacement ₹ 500.00
Water Hose R/R ₹ 500.00
Coolant Replacement ₹ 1,000.00
Timing Side R/R ₹ 2,000.00
Poly-V Belt for Compressor R/R ₹ 500.00
Engine Mount R/R ₹ 500.00

Tax 14.5% extra

Dunno what kind of job they are doing. ₹5725.00 labor charge for installing ₹6100.00 part.

Adding to worries one biker moron broke right side mirror casing and glass. Left side glass was already damaged and was on duplicate plain mirror.

Mirror Glass LHS 6RG857521 ₹ 257.00
Mirror Glass RHS 6RG857522 ₹ 257.00
Mirror Cap RHS 5Z1857538C GRU ₹ 154.00

Mirror Painting ₹ 1,488.50
Mirror/Cap Replacement ₹ 300.00+tax

Funny part, ₹100 each for fitting mirror glass and mirror cap. Such herculean task [frustration]

Topped up oil also.

Castrol Magnatec OL3384352 ₹ 970.00
Labor ₹100.00+tax

Total Damage - ₹16.9k. Discounted ₹ 500 after raising voice on this absurd bill.



Some gyan on using the car:
1. Arrow in the fuel gauge indicates side of fuel cap (Facebook knowledge shared by my bro).
2. Polo hazard with turn off whenever indicator is turned on and comes back when indicator is disengaged.
