Re: Polo 110 R DSG - Navigation not active.

The SEL and the United come with sat nav as standard. Even though the R line is above the SEL, it doesn’t come with sat nav as standard. Neither do the Gti specs.

Re: Polo AW Facelift Spy shots

The exterior of the Golf 8 has grown on me. I'm still unconvinced about the buttonless interior though. I'm not so sure that the Polo will get a fully buttonless interior though. The base model cars have a mechanically controlled heating/AC system, and adding electrically controlled blend doors wou...

Re: Long Term Ownership.

Brilliant glad it's sorted! :) Think the issue is my normal work journey is 30 miles and I leave it normal mode but I’ve been in eco since Christmas as it’s been slippy round us and it blunts the throttle a bit. I’ve also been doing short journeys not really getting up to any speed. I think monkeyh...

Re: Long Term Ownership.

This thread might be useful: https://uk-polos.net/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=73177 Mine went through this for the second time the other day (9500 miles). Exhaust gets louder, DSG becomes even more jerky, MPG drops, fans are louder and sometimes there's a burning smell. Took it out for 20 minutes while ha...

Re: Long Term Ownership.

Not to disrupt the thread, but has anyone here had their exhaust get louder? Got in it today after a few days standing and the exhaust seems noisier. Can’t see any holes or damage on the ramps and it’s quiet at idle but noisier on acceleration. It’s also not in sport mode. It’s done 5500 miles so I...

Re: Oh god, snow and DSG.....

Have to say my drive is on a hill to an ungritted road, and I’ve been out and about this morning. Eco mode and taking it slow and had no problems even on the icy car parks I nearly fell over on. My neighbour with his rwd struggled to get anywhere at all.

Re: New mid range United spec

Merry Christmas all.

According to my dealer when we picked ours up months ago, it was originally meant to have been released during Euro 2020 as a United we stand sort of thing.

Re: Long Term Ownership.

I’ve got a 20 plate gti plus. It’s my first auto and I love it. Yes there’s a couple of issues with the car but none of them have made me dislike the car in any form. I find it adds character! Mine are:- 1. Mooing brakes when reversing. This didn’t really happen when I first got the car apart from w...

Re: Testing driving Polo GTI+ tomorrow

I love my gti, but I had a normal Golf and a golf gtd previously and both were more comfortable than my polo. So if you found the golf uncomfortable I’d be surprised if you found the polo gti more comfortable. I also agree with Andy, if I hadn’t needed some semblance of a boot for my golf gear then ...

Re: Help - Polo 2.0 TSI GTI DSG horrible noise from rear

I get it most mornings as I reverse off my drive but if reversing after driving any distance it doesn't happen - a dab of the brake seems to stop it. Seems to be more pronounced if it's cold. Sort of a cross between a rusty gate hinge, whale mating call and cow mooing. Think I can put up with it tb...

Re: Help - Polo 2.0 TSI GTI DSG horrible noise from rear

My car occasionally makes this noise when reversing but seems to stop if I brake once. Seems to happen more if I’ve been on a long journey and not had to use my brakes much, for example my commute to/from work. Not had the noise with mine yet, so waiting in anticipation 🙂. It seems to go dead easil...
