Re: DTUK Box, peoples reviews and reliability

Hi c_randell_23 ,

If you're looking for reviews head over to the Polo 6R 6C Owners Club UK there is a lot of feed back on there regarding the box. Which I run myself.

Re: Polo GTI 6C DSG clunk when changing 2nd to 3rd in M mode

You're not letting the car get up to temperature if this is happening, make sure you run the car for 20-30 minutes too get it hot... mine does it. Is the car stock or tuned?

Re: Sun Roof... Yes or No ?

I have a Polo GTI with the pan roof...

definitely aint cheap but I don't regret getting it... keeps the car nice and cool... makes the car much lighter in side.

Adds to the re-sale value with out a doubt...

just do what I did and get it cause I could :)
