Thanks for the feedback cooldhaya & Jalex. Almost decided on the Polo for dad if he doesn't change his mind in the next day or two and thinks about the Alto Lxi vfm angle again. Guess the Polo is a bit low powered but my dads for 90% looks and 10% power n other things I think:) though for me security i.e airbags and ABS is very important..expecting it to have good driving dynamics owing to it's technical underpinnings and long heritage since 1975 though have never driven a VW myself and neither has my dad test driven it. I like red and white but dad wants metallic colours so pepper grey and reflex silver seems interesting for now. Glacier blue is a bit rare for a Polo I think atleast looking at the Polos and Golfs in Australia I think so not looking at that option. Actually if I had my way I would go for Black but blacks a strict no no by my dad:). Spoke to the dealer yesterday and he's promised to be able get it for me in 2 months since told him about our family function, lets see, if alls well will put in a deposit in a couple of days.
