Re: How you remove racing stripes?

I would keep it on the car. I think anyone wanting to buy a used Polo Beats when the time comes to sell it may expect that model to have the ‘racing’ stripes.

Glad you’ve got it back and you’re happy with the repair.

Now you can get back to driving it and enjoying it! 👍

Re: Recall - rear seat belt

There was no sticker on my courtesy car I’ve been using and was expect to know that it that I couldn’t use the middle seat. What would have happened if I didn’t already own a polo and was not aware! If your Polo courtesy car is very new, I suppose it’s possible that VW are now fitting the revised (...

Re: New GTI + delivery

I don't know how significant is it, but the GTI no longer appears on the VW.de site configurator...? it might not be of any significance. The GTI+ was removed from the UK configurator earlier this year for a few months, but it was still possible to order one and it’s since been added back to the co...

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

Well it was cold and damp out (4 degrees and car all misted up on the outside). I had to use the rear window heater , worked like a charm, the heated seat, worked well, and I had to de-mist the inside of the wind screen and that cleared quite quickly. The dash warning flashed up for possible ice, i...

Re: GTI 6c Diamond Cutting

I dislike diamond cut alloys with a passion and I wish that manufacturers would stop fitting them! I swapped mine over to a set of powder coated alloys soon after I got my GTI, as they’re much more durable and better suited to the UK’s winter weather, and not prone to white worm corrosion like diamo...

Re: 6C Sat Nav

SRGTD, What I found a bit odd about your three used-car adverts is that whilst the pictures of the Infotainment displays, in each case, showed not only a NAV button but also in one case an actual satnav map on the screen, in the summary specification of the vehicle there was no mention of satnav at...

Re: 6C Sat Nav

Veteran; I’ve just done a search on 6c Polos with sat nav in the used section of VW’s website. The pictures of the cars from the search results don’t have a shark fin aerial, so it could be that, as you suspect, there is an unused GPS loop and lead in the base of the bee sting aerial. Presumably a V...

There are vw polos that have sat nav from factory so how have they overcome the signal issues?
Pretty certain the GPS antenna location for the VW factory fit sat nav is integrated into the roof aerial assembly, so it’s probably in the optimum position to pick up a good signal.

Probably worth checking that you’ve actually got GAP insurance then.

Re: 6C Sat Nav

The OP’s car is a 2017 6c Polo GTI so will have the brains of the infotainment unit in the glove box. OP; if you’ve got Car Net App Connect and an Android phone, you can use one of the sat nav phone apps and have the maps displayed on your infotainment unit screen. If you have an iPhone, when IOS 12...

Re: polo se 95 rear bumper "hole"

I’m pretty certain the current Golf has a similar rectangular shaped aperture on the underside of the rear bumper, so it may be the current VW practice to produce rear bumpers with this cut out for ease of fitting a tow bar. Having said that, I’d have thought Polo owners with tow bars will be in the...

Re: Factory Delays

I wouldn't be ordering a A1 the new version is due soon I know, November time. Will give me food for thought. Putting WLTP issues aside, if Audi have the same issues with lengthy lead times / waiting times when a new model is launched as VW seem to have, you may find yourself playing the waiting ga...

Re: Update to infotainment system?

That’s a good point about the phones or phone settings being the cause of issues rather than the infotainment units themselves being faulty. Cheap eBay lightning cables can also cause issues. Always worth trying a different phone / lightning cable to eliminate these sources as the reason for any ‘bu...
