      Yes.

      My first 100kms with the car

      1. Nothing to do with the clutch. I got transitioned quite easily to the new car
      2. Yet to get to know the electronics fully
      3. Had a weekend training and did take the car on both the days. WOW.. What a car. She just hugs the road. Such confidence you get
      4. B2B traffic she is a guzzler; but otherwise she is good. Though I mention this, I am not a big fan of "Kitna detha hai?"
      5. Multi-link suspension stands tall
      6. Quite cabinet
      7. Super Cool AC - thanks to SCF and AC itself
      8. Super leather seats and driving position

      Digital India is indeed good. Last Friday I got a message on my RC. Checked Parivaan and indeed it was there. Now a virtual RC is there with me. Smart Card RC on its way. Should collect it in a day or two.

      Superb has some additional features too

      1. Better under thigh support in the rear
      2. Loads of leg room
      3. 40L additional boot
      4. Believe even the gearbox is not DQ20. It is the next verison. So no question of failure



      I test drove both Superb and Octavia and decided to go with Octy.
      Thanks. How to find which version of the DSG gearbox is in the vehicle?

      I was contemplating between 3M, Llumar and Blau. Finally settled for Blaupunk A70 series for all the six glasses as I am having the same in my Linea.

      Specs are as follows:
      • Model: A70BL (Nano Ceramic)
      • VLT : 70%
      • IR : 95%
      • UV : 99%
      • Warranty : 5 Years


      All done as part of home visits. Snaps here

      Sir are these sheets installed both in the inside and the outside side too?
      Besides controlling the sun/high end beams, does it solve any other purpose?

      1.8 TSI comes with DQ200 (dry clutch)
      RS comes with DQ250 (wet clutch)
      2.0 TDI comes with DQ250

      All Superb gets DQ250

      Pundits can correct this if I am wrong.

      No only inside.

      Rather than Sunlight it cuts the IR thereby reducing the heat. This helps in better cooling and longevity of compressor too.

      I did quite bit of research on Ross Tech alternatives and found the following:

      1. EBDTool: This was available for $89 from China. This was with the latest version of the software as well. Though not from Ali, I was still skeptical
      2. OBDEleven: There were to products - one an older version and another the latest version which is called Next generation OBDeleven device. The next generation device is compatible with a wider range of VAG vehicles and the apps are available for Droid and the Fruit though for the Fruit the functionality is limited as of time (ETA for full functionality is Jun 2020). I checked with mclaren1885 and he advised me to proceed with OBDeleven Pro version which is what I am going to buy closer to Easter for I believe there would be deals during that time.

      2. Ceramic coating
      3. Petrol Sticker
      I wanted exterior and interior to be done before anything. Thanks to Baran I got it done the right way. He advised me to do the following before detailing:
      1. Complete the PPF before detailing: Spoke to multiple persons in Chennai and the quote was not less than 1.5L for PPF. I felt it is better to save the money and repaint the full car (if required) a couple of times and hence did not go ahead with PPF. Again Baran came to my rescue with a suggestion to get the PPF done for door edges which are most vulnerable.
      2. Complete the Sun Film before detailing: A70 already done
      3. Ceramic coating: Thanks to Baran I did not go ahead with this. Got the Poly Sealant done. He suggested this as I would be only person maintaining this car.


      Gave the car during the second week of Feb and got it done.

      To be honest and frank, I never knew what a 7D Mat was all about other than that it is a number followed by a letter. I had a Kagu 3D for my Linea, and wanted to get a similar one. It was only recently I read about 7D. Added my trusted installer Thiyagu of V2 accessories explained to me the difference as well. I handed over the 7Ds to Baran and post interior cleaning, he set it up in the car. Quality, fit and finish were good and I am quite happy as well.

      Now for the best part - I suggested this to few guys (read as JC fan boys) and they too were impressed with the quality and price. They have also got the same for their family member.

      As usual some pics of the installed 7D as well.
