How long are you willing to keep the car under repairs? If a week is acceptable, get this done under warranty by the showroom guys. If you cant spare the car for more than a couple of days, visit an expert denter. Assuming a full fender dent-paint, it will cost around 3k.
sir car was standing outside my office. and when i left my office i found this…..right fender is completely damaged with 10mm hole on it.. i think it will have to be replaced with new one…. and how can damage be covered under warranty???
well fender damage means bumper damage, as its all plastic or fibre, you would have to replace it …. bumper will cost you around 3k excluding, fog lamps, head lights, or any damage…. opt for insurance, well its a month process, but could save you easily 3 to 4 k … only 30% of fibre cost the insurance company offers i guess… get it…[Read more]
Sorry, I meant insurance. Bumper damage is the catch here, It being a plastic part will cost unless you have a zero depriciation insurance. If you do have it, then it become s no brainer. Give it to the showroom guys and get everything repaired under insurance for no cost.
Swift VDi for better interior space and comfort..features and price..
Polo comfortline for better boot space, looks….
The Swift L and V models get a ‘do not buy’ rating from me for their unacceptably weak brakes.
I always recommend people to go for the top end variants for the sake of the safety kit, in which case I would ask you to raise the budget else look at the Ritz / Figo / Vista. Regards.
Completely agree with others here. When you are buying something for yourself and for your family by spending Lakhs of Rupees, why to ignore basic safety option and compromise with life-saving features like – ABS, EBD, BA, Air-bags, etc.
and all these so called life saving feature fail when there is actual need!!!! mainly airbags!!!
laura tsi is fun to drive!!!! try to bargain ….
@Roshun, whats your view ? I bargained and got the dealer at 6 lakhs. Should I go ahead ??
Sounds real good for 6L
6 lakh sounds like a good price! Check its service records ( by calling / going to the service station it was last serviced at )… as that would give you a first hand idea of its history. Overall, it seems like a good deal to me.
Hi Rohit, It seems like a nice product. But you may have issues importing it and after sales support. In India you can get RaceDynamics dieseltronic chip that does similar stuff – I think racedynamics folks are also on cartoq. @racedynamics http://www.cartoq.com/members/racedynamics/ . And then you also have Petes tuning boxes. Check out either…[Read more]
yes sir for polo… but i am concerned about after effects of installing it…..because this car i have to keep for many years….. plz advice Roshun Sir
polo tsi is awesome!!!
i am just loving Ecosport. Nothing seems as path breaking or as innovative as it now!
even better than the ivtec huh???
I’ve not yet driven the Polo TSi, but going by reviews of others who have – it is a pretty awesome car. However, just on performance alone, I’d think the Honda City >> Ford EcoSport EcoBoost >> Vento diesel in that order, although the driving characteristics of the EcoSport are very different.
roshun sir i have driven my friend polo 1.2 tsi and believe me it is awesome… far better then expected!!!!!
but do we have a manual transmission in the polo tsi???
7 speed DSG
vw claims 17-18 kmpl, but one of my friend gets around 10!! whats the real time mileage
Hrishikesh, can you please specify a budget and a preferrence of category- hatch or sedan?
budget 10 lakhs
hatchback or Sedan
hv a look at polo 1.2 tsi
in a budget of 10 lacs, you have a whole range of options:
Among the hatches, the best combination of looks and features and a pretty decent mileage is the i20. it’ll come fully loaded with just about everthing and it’s a very safe car as well.
A wider choice awaits you in the sedans- where you have the Verna, the City and the Fiesta- all…[Read more]
ys do go for extended warranty……
It’s always a good idea to pick up the extended warranty. Since the Amaze diesel is new to the market, one can’t be too sure of its long term performance – and hence an extended warranty will get you some peace of mind.
Build quality of the Amaze, well, yes, cant be compared with other Hondas. Still, it is about par with its competition.
interiors of amaze is not up to the mark as its honda
Hi, you are taking build quality and cost cutting as one thing. They are different, Honda is still giving good quality in whatever is given, but the thing with the Amaze is that quite a lot of cost cutting measures have been implemented. No boot lining affects the NVH slightly and looks bad but doesn’t affect the core functioning of the vehicle.…[Read more]
Good points were noted. experts can you shed light on the thickness of the metal used in AMAZE vs DEZIRE Or with rest of the cars in this segment …! this will completely clear the confusion ?
Manufacturers do not share the sheet metal thickness or material used for the same. Also considering that these are budget conscious cars, expecting high quality sheets to save weight and increase performance would be a little ironic. A car that is heavy and feels like it has strong doors, boot, engine hood etc would be better, in my opinion. Regards.
No, it doesn’t have a gauge. It only has a warning lamp for temperature if I remember correctly.
In the form of a light which glows when the engine temperature exceeds the set limit.
digital signal if the temperature exceed the predefined set value
Congrats on your buy…Drive hard but Ride safe…Regards.
how has this affected the mileage?
Hey Shrang, good to know you’re enjoying the dieseltronic box. Take care and drive safe. Also keep us updated on how its performing – from time to time. Cheers!
so far i’m not feeling a big change… on full tank and high.. it was 680 in 36-37 litrs…
now its 640… thats it… but there is a big change in the performance..
for sure.. Roshun Bhai…
NOW WHT IS THE TOP SPEED ON HIGHWAY
its 173 Km/hr… last time it was 160 Km/hr… but there is no difference in mileage …
173 on which road u wer able 2 attain?and how long
not so long.. its was panipat fly over.. i was coming from chandigarh… time was around 3.30 am…
gd,but i hav touched 172 with my swift on yamuna exps highway,and also taken a snap simoultaneously,and almost for 15 secs i was able 2 maintain that speed,without any alteration,
How much has the Dieseltronics costed you including installations.
installation is nothing.. it is just a plug and play device… you have to just unpluged the fuel rail socket and plug the DT socket in it.. cost 19,999…
i have installed cosworth air filter in my swift vdi. i can feel better punch than stock filter after 2000rpm in any gear at any speed. want some more fun so can you suggest it for my 3.5 years old 70000km swift vdi
Yes kaushal… swift is fun to drive… you can put tuning box in it.. i have seen results with swift and they are amezing…
NOW WITHOUT ANY ALTERATION MY SWIFTS TIMING OF 0-100 IS 13.02SECS,BUT WITH SOME VARIATION IN ICU,EXPERTS CLAIM 12.5 SECS,BUT ORIGINALITY IS ALWAYS BETTER,ENHANCEMENT DOESNT WORK IN LONG RUN
Race chip is better as the price is lower and you have the choice to increase or decrease the power settings manually also if you are not satisfied with the stock settings of race chip.my friends have it in their car too.no reliability issues too.
please elaborate on the difference between diesel tronic and race chip in terms of price and long term reliability??
Rohit i have tested almost all the chips available in the market. best one is pete’s. but its lil expensive. if you want to choose between racechip and diesel tronic. go for diesel tronic.
Hello, the DieselTRONIC unit has absolutely no adverse affect on engine life or performance. 4 wirelessly switchable maps to suit every driving style giving you the best of both performance as well as economy. The unit is manufactured by us in India and exceeds oem standards. With DieselTRONIC, you have manufacturer support a phone call away aside…[Read more]
Thanks shrang… but can vw sc people can know by any change that there is some modification done in case i opt for some replacememt under waranty???? plz comment….. thanks in advance
We advise you to remove the unit before taking the car to the service center for a warranty claim. Once removed, the unit leaves no evidence that it was installed.
Please i can have price for diesel tronic for polo and where can i get it in new delhi???? does it effects the life of the engine components
its 19999. and you can get it from performance auto noida sect-15. buddy just install it, and feel the difference.
