Re: New Polo Blue GT spec questions

I think it is a shame they have not given the Blue GT a bit more of a makeover. Mine is three years ild in May and done 43,000 miles in that time and it has been superb and even been sprinted at Curborough http://i382.photobucket.com/albums/oo261/wigit71/Polo%20Blue%20GT/11779869_483527528490007_127...

Re: Is a polo blue gt worth the price tag attached to it?

Have to admit i still love our BGT, was expensive but I did spec things on it that i had on my Ed35, mine has gone through 33k and is a real workhorse and stands up well to our Rs, only thing i wish i had on it was DSG based on loving this in the Rs and the amount of time commuting, that said the ma...

Re: Winter wheels & tyres - BlueGT

There are at least a couple of schools of thought on this, and I've done both! First one is, steel wheels and 'premium' winter tyres. I had a set of 15" steel wheels, VW trims and Dunlop winter sport tyres. Circa £400 all in from mytyres, looked ok, did the job and great in snow and ice, although o...

Re: Polo Blue GT

I had the pleasure of driving the new one with a dsg last week and wow. So quiet, comfortable, surprisingly economical and fun, particularly when a 2.0 tdi A3 driver thinks he'll blast past your little polo at the lights then finds you've left him....... Sadly I'm being made to wait until we've mov...

Re: 2014 spec. BlueGT finally here :)

Ibiza and A1 are offered with the 2.0 TDI so its definitely possible on this chassis. Engine doesn't suit the car very well though, its a hell of a lot of weight over the front wheels compared to the small capacity petrol engines. Performance and handling is as a result compromised. in reality the ...

Re: Polo BlueGT - time to say goodbye

Mk7 GTI is a cracking car and raised the game over the 6, have to admit i absolutely adore my 7R which has exceeded expectations and looking forward to the wife's 7R arriving later in the year, Blue GT won't be going anywhere as economy wise and smaller size just great for day to day

Re: 2014 spec. BlueGT finally here :)

car has a real mix of use but to put into perspective the GT is recording the same mpg as my old 500TA and probably gets driven harder, 45 at worst well into the 50s on a run, 50-60mph runs is where it shines, best it has recorded is 460 miles on a tank done on a trip to plymouth with AC on, not bad...

Re: 2014 spec. BlueGT finally here :)

Hi nry. Beautiful car, very jealous! I REALLY want one - was offered one last year by the dealer but ended up with a 1.6tdi golf instead. Don't get me wrong, I love my golf but it's slow in comparison and the polo looks fun. I'm curious how firm the ride is on the BlueGT? This is one area my golf e...
