Re: After Market stereo for Blue GT?

All Volkswagen radios are the same size and are all interchangeable only thing you have to look out for is generations E.g RCD300 RCD 310 (Polo 6R), RCD 330 (Polo 6C). So you can use your old one from your golf, otherwise the Pioneer SPH-DA120 would by my choice for aftermarket or RNS315 for OEM. To...

Re: Polo 6R/6C Photo Gallery

But the seating comfort isn't really any different than the cloth highline seats. It might transpire that my best line of attack would be to find an auto upholsterer who could fit more-comfortable padding in the existing seat squab (or just more of it!), not only eliminating that criminally-bad dee...

Re: Speaker Upgrades

Ended up buying the Rainbow IL 3-comp for my golf and 2 comp for the rear of it and Germanium crossovers, so I'll be putting the old Dynaudio speakers from it into the Polo as a straight fit, except the tweeters as expected though.

Re: Speaker Upgrades

I'm pretty sure they are a direct fit as the tweeters look quite slim front to back and are shaped to match the oem ones. I was looking at the rainbow il-c6.2 to replace the fronts with the amp wired in driving them (the amp is 4x45w) Then I might of changed the rears to some co-ax speakers with an...

Re: Speaker Upgrades

The mk6 custom speakers aren't a direct fit only the mid/woofer are the same as they're 6.5inch the tweeter isn't due to where the tweeter is placed and the tweeter housing is too short. The A piller would be a great place for the tweeter it's got a great angle for it, but I took the trim off there ...

Re: Speaker Upgrades

I definitely wouldn't go with co-axial speakers in the doors. It would sound terrible having the tweeters that low. Do you not have tweeters in the a pillars already? The rns 315 head unit will have an output of about 4x20w (about the limit for a head unit on a 12v system) They do custom fit speake...

Speaker Upgrades

Having recently upgraded the speakers in my mk5 golf (it was worse that the polo now league better) , I have come to the realisation the polo also needs upgraded as it's the daily, and I can't stand the hollow music anymore. So I was wondering what people have done for speakers and or tweeters? curr...

Re: Removing stereo surround on 6R Gti

If you have trim tools use them at the sides of the surround, if not use two stiff plastic cards eg aa card.

It’s not difficult just take your time

Re: Steering question

As RUM4MO say’s it’s down the the battery the cold takes a lot of energy out of car batteries and so you’ll get this, in the dark of the morning you’ll find the lights dim when you turn the steering wheel, since the alternator hasn’t kicked in yet. Whack it on a battery charger over night for a few ...
