I saw at least 10- 11 cars during this period and none i liked. there were problems either with untidy interiors / dents on body or high miles.
      THank you! as Evolution88 said this was from a known source. Even then, there are scratches and dents on the bodywork.

      Some Pics before the Prayers this morning

      So, we have a tradition of taking any new vehicle to the "Fire Temple" (Agiary) and the Priest performs a small prayer and throws rice on the vehicle.

      These pics are before those prayers for Torpedo

      I have nothing against my religion but i hate it when the rice is thrown on Torpedo. A lot of rice grains are now settled on the plastic "lip" just below the wipers. These will find their way to the drain and possibly settle there, clogging the drain. They have to be vacuumed out. Moreover, they might destroy the wiper blad if they come in between the blade and the front windshield.

      Other than this, nothing to report except its driving beautifully and was fed a tankful of V power diesel.

      More later.

      More images will follow. Looking forward to get inputs, tips, features and share notes about this vehicle.

      Its a September 2013, TDI Highline with DSG. Has about 40300 odd km on the odo when i took over.

      I've named him Torpedo.
      Nice find. It's hard to find a good jetta. If you don't mind me asking could you reveal the damages to your wallet?

      Should I or shouldn't I

      Having used a Ford Figo that was remapped by #Code6 @DigitalVampire one of the first questions that came up in my mind was should i remap Torpedo or should i not remap Torpedo.

      I witnessed good drive-ability with FigoFurther and the torque and bhp gains were noticeable even though i didn't dyno him (FigoFurther) before or after the fact.

      I had thought long and hard about it and realized that 140 BHP stock is a good enough number to have and that i may never need more given that the kind of traffic we wade through here in #Bangalore as well as the kind of torque figures dished out stock seem to be sufficient for me at this point of time.

      So, for now, its a no.

      Another Drive snucked in during working day with Torpedo.

      I've recently been having some issues with my health. However, had gone to office since things on the health front were somewhat under control. Then i received a call from a friend and we decided to meet up for lunch.

      Post lunch it was already 1545 and i knew that the parking slot for Torpedo would definitely have been taken over by some other vehicle. So, since i had some time on my hands, i decided to take my favorite route out of the city and let Torpedo spin his wheels a bit.

      To begin with, I decided that since i'm a law abiding citizen of the city, I'll set the posted speed limit as my speed limit for Torpedo.

      This was promptly broken in about 30 seconds:

      We encountered light rain and the roads were wet with cars leaving fine trails of mist in their wake. So i decided to see how much fuel efficiency i can wrangle out of Torpedo.

      It started with modest figures: 16.7 kmpl:

      Which was good. Driving with a light foot and anticipating slow traffic before i hit it by throttling off Torpedo, I was able to nudge it up a bit more:

      Maximum speed was 100 kmph for a short burst to overtake one of the large, lumbering Bharat enz trucks carrying sand.

      It was a good, refreshing short drive.

      I think i need to sneak out more often.
