Re: Petrol Flap

I don’t have a current model Polo GTI, but I would expect the fuel filler flap to be fully flush with the rear quarter panel when it’s closed, with an even sized gap around the edge of the filler flap and the surrounding panel (it is on my previous generation Polo GTI). If you live close to a VW dea...

Re: Polo AW Photo Gallery

I truly wish there was more variety wrt colours of teh GTI. Here we only have a choice of Red,WHite, Back and Blue... No Grey. The new colour I really like from VW isnt available as an option for the GTI, namely White Silver Metallic. Guess its wrap time yo! I agree, the colour palette for the GTI ...

Re: going from composition media to dicover media ??

I would image it would be extremely expansive for one, dealers probably don't have any instructions for doing it, part numbers involved etc and the coding required, maybe VW specifically state it isn't an upgrade dealers are allowed to perform as well. My car doesn't have navigation, I didn't see t...

Re: Why can't I post photos anymore?

No idea why it doesn’t work, but If you can’t upload photos in the usual way, you can still add them to your posts if you use a photo hosting site such as https://postimages.org/ Upload your pictures to the host site, copy the ‘Hotlink for forums’ link for the pictures you want to include in your po...

Re: Sport mode

It’s not unusual for a car sales person to know very little about the product range they are selling. On more than one occasion, I’ve had a salesperson try and persuade me to buy certain options when those features were part of the standard spec for the car. Usually, the majority of car salespeople ...

Re: Tyre pressures

1.2 TSI owners - What’s the recommended tyre pressures for the standard 185/60/15 tyres please? The tyre pressure plate on our car says 38psi, but I don’t think this is correct. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk That’s VW’s recommended tyre pressure, but IMO it’s not necessarily the optimum...

Re: Expected facelift for GTI?

All being well, I plan on changing my previous generation Polo GTI for a current model GTI+ next year. Am I worried that a facelift version might be launched within 12 months of me getting my car? Not at all. If a facelift version of the Polo is hit with the ‘ugly stick’ like the new Golf has been (...

Re: 2019 lead times

The wait is nearly over! Just don’t let any of that excitement blinker you on pick up day. Don’t be rushed and check every aspect of that new car. I had a total horror of a new Polo Gti (a dealer stock car, so not a specific build) which ended my ownership with it after 2hrs and 40 minutes. I was j...

Re: Expected facelift for GTI?

Fully LED rear clusters with dynamic indicators like the A1 has would be expected for facelift. Not for a few years though. Personally, I’m not a fan of dynamic indicators - I think they look a bit gimmicky. Others will love them, but it’s good that people like different things, otherwise life woul...

Re: Expected facelift for GTI?

Hello, Some Polo GTI owner told me that a facelift is expected around March 2020. However, I did not find anything about it while searching the internet. Any idea? I might buy a new GTI in the coming months. Thanks, __Yehavi: I’d say that a facelift version of the Polo as early as March 2020 is unl...
