Re: Wait time order to delivery

I am on my fourth VW and the shortest length of time I’ve had to wait for a factory order was 2 - 2.5 months. The longest time I had to wait was 8 months. My current car took just over 3 months from order to delivery to the dealer. It’s not uncommon for the first 12-18 months of a new VW model’s lif...

Re: After Market stereo for Blue GT?

According to the cars info, it does state "Car-Net App-Connect", so hopefully it does have it! Also my phone is an Android Samsung S6 Edge. Am I gonna be OK for sat nav then? You can check to see if your phone is compatible with Car Net App Connect at the link below; http://webspecial.volkswagen.de...

Re: After Market stereo for Blue GT?

If your Polo Blue GT has got Car Net App Connect, you won’t need to upgrade your infotainment system to one with sat nav, as you’ll be apple to use on of the smart phone sat nav apps via app connect. http://www.volkswagen.co.uk/technology/car-net/app-connect Car Net App Connect was optional, so if i...

Re: Polo Performance News Snippets

Its not about outright speed , but providing a little bit of driver enjoyment on occasion, whilst having some degree of convenience and practicality. I wouldn’t mind betting others have a similar point of view. Agree with this loadswine. I am also retired and for me, driver enjoyment is still an im...

Re: GTI plus spare wheel

MY SEL deffo has a full size spare, I have to say I took it out yesterday and its FULL SIZE steel, oddly though it has a different make tyre then then rest. The one in the boot is a FALKEN but its a SINSERA don't know why. Quite often when the spare is a full size wheel rather than a space saver, i...

Re: Polo GTI Standard Headlights

Re original question....we have a standard specification GTI. There are no red lines in the headlamps because we don't have LED lights. Even the sales team agree that the 'brochure' was slightly misleading. Imagine our surprise when we saw headlamps without the red line. If you go to the thread, yo...

Re: Polo GTI Standard Headlights

I have had sunroofs on all my recent cars, including a 2014 Octavia VRS and a 2017 Skoda Superb 280 and wouldn’t be without one. Same parts as VW, so should be comparable. Yes I have experienced the odd rattle, but nothing major. I have not found a headroom problem thus far, at 6ft myself. With the...

Or if you shred a tyre completely, no repair can will fix that! Spare wheel ftw.
Totally agree. Many of the volume car manufacturers don’t include a spare wheel as part of standard spec these days. VW still do for the majority of their models.

Hats off to VW for doing this! 👍

Re: GTI plus spare wheel

When I purchased, well ordered my Polo, the SEL in the showroom had a normal spare tyre in the boot, and when I mentioned this to the sales guy, he said "the SEL's all come with a proper tyre". So has this put the cat amongst the pidgin's? So another ‘anomaly’ in VW’s product literature then 😧; pag...

Re: GTI plus spare wheel

Some of the press GTI’s and launch display GTI models had the upgraded Beats Audio system. With the upgraded Beats Audio system, the sub sits to the left of the spare wheel well and the car’s tool kit is moved to the spare wheel well where the space saver spare would be. In a UK spec GTI / GTI+, the...

Re: GTI plus spare wheel

Interesting, as this wasn’t on the options listwhen I ordered mine. Was yours ordered Joe, or was it just a pleasant surprise? It’s not listed as an option as it’s part of the standard spec for the Polo, other than the Beats model which gets a tyre mobility kit, including compressor. According to t...

Re: Polo GTI Standard Headlights

SEL specific stuff + options user comments. I wish I had or down sides Sunroof, it was an error not to order that. I have not been in a new POLO with one and I did not order it because I understood it detracts from the headroom and I am 6` tall and my youngest soon is 6`1 we both fit in the car eas...
