Re: Coming from a Golf GTI mk7.5

Price to change is what really matters, but you may get more for the px selling privately on "Tootle". Sellers bid for your car to buy and sell on. My 46 month old Golf R got sold via Tootle for £2k more than Lookers would give and £1700 more than Pulman. Helped a lot in my cost to change. Tootle w...

Re: Coming from a Golf GTI mk7.5

Maybe VW rely upon the fact that it is attached to the car in more than one place to call it multilink? It does have multiple links to the chassis but isn't independent rear suspension. More than likely though, it is just a typo. Press releases suggested that GTI was going to get it. Yes, Agee that...

Re: Coming from a Golf GTI mk7.5

Polo don't have multilink in rear Yes, the brochure is incorrect and that information has been wrong since the first brochure was issued that included information on the Polo GTI. VW UK seem to be quite good at having errors in their product information. For months, they were stating in the price l...

Re: Service Interval Question

Was your last service an inspection service (major service)? If you’re on time and distance servicing, services alternate between an oil service (minor service) and an inspection service (major service). If your last service was an inspection service then your next service is an oil change service (...

Re: Looking for a GTi+ - Climate & dsg query

As you say , climate , nowhere to be seen on stock or demo cars , once you have had climate it would’ve really hard to live without it . I had to do factory order back in May , thankfully car almost here , ( just arrived in Emden! ) I think the DSG question is about the 6 speeds ability to handle t...

Re: Looking for a GTi+ - Climate & dsg query

Auto climate control is an extra cost option on both the GTI and GTI+ and has been since day one. It was also an extra cost option on the previous generation Polo GTI. You’re correct in that there don’t seem to be many that have been specced with auto climate control. If I was buying new, I’d probab...

Re: New Audi A1 18

I'm also not a fan of diamond cut. I'm planning to refurb my old avignon wheels and putting them on. Just torn between the stock hyper silver pictured or a darker gun metal grey @Ecko, this is my previous generation Polo GTI with anthracite grey VW Motorsport alloys to give you an idea of what a bl...

Re: Radio stuck on Starting Telephone

I think Sept 2014 is about the changeover time from the 6r to 6c, so the OP’s car could be one of the last 6r’s or an early 6c. There are a few interior and exterior visual differences between the 6r and 6c - some of these are hard to spot as they’re quite subtle - the design of the reflectors in th...

Re: Coolant and oil levels

Quite a few instances reported on golfgtiforum.co.uk and vwroc.com by owners of new Golfs experiencing a drop in coolant level. The usual cause is air being left in the cooling system when it’s filled at the factory. This air then works its way out of the system over the first few weeks / months of ...

After taking the whole of the dash out turned out to be the usb power connector bracket should of had 4 clips on but only had 3 this was causing the vibration. VW almost had to remove the dash in my last 6C to fix an annoying rat...

Re: BlueGT chrome exhaust trim install

They look good and totally OEM, and as you’ve said, much cheaper than the Polo versions.

The Skoda Yeti exhaust tips fit other VW models too; quite a few forum members over on golfgtiforum.co.uk have fitted them to mk6 and mk7 Golfs.

Re: BlueGT 2017. Android auto?

App Connect was a factory fit option on the 6c Polo, so firstly, press the ‘Menu’ button at the side of the infotainment unit screen to see if you have an ‘app connect’ icon. Not all the early infotainment units fitted in the 6c Polo (which yours will be) we’re app connect compatible, but as yours i...

Re: New Audi A1 18" on a Polo GTi?

Brescia looks better by my opinion. I had problem while looking for aftermarket wheels. I needed wheels with same parameters like brescia (5x100 7,5R18 ET51) and at that time I found just one type ... Brock RC32. I think they look nice and cost half of price of new brescia. :D https://www.brock.de/...

Re: New Audi A1 18" on a Polo GTi?

There’s not much choice of VW alloys for the AW Polo because of the 5x100 bolt pattern (PCD) - most VW’s have a PCD of 5x112. I have VW Motorsport alloys (anthracite powder coated / painted finish) on my previous generation 6c Polo GTI but they aren’t suitable for the AW Polo GTI because the front a...
