Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

Listers Stratford upon Avon sorted mine. Curious as to why my car remains fixed and some of you are experiencing problems again.

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

That's how mine sounded before the work was done. Sounded like the QE2 coming into port.
Fingers crossed it doesn't return.

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

One month on and all is ok with mine. I did not receive any supporting paperwork. VW UK were in touch with Germany concerning the issue. The sound recording I made for the dealership was forwarded to VW UK for analysis. I was the first customer at my dealership to present with the problem...it was n...

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

Just seen a few posts.
Work done last friday. New discs/pads and software update.

Re: Help! Rear wheel humming noise. Polo GTi

New discs and pads authorized for mine. I lazily assumed that the dealer was aware of this issue..they weren't. They are now.

Mine does it too. Dealer couldn't recreate sound. I've now recorded it and will be going back in.

Re: Upgrade Exhaust options?

Government is trialling the use of sound cameras to include noisy exhausts. You'll all be trying to make them quieter again.

I've had them periodically and always filed them under miscellaneous in the bin.

Re: New GTI + delivery

After 13 month wait I finally collected the car yesterday morning! GTI+, Reef Blue, Pan roof, Parkers. :D For anyone coming from a 6C GTI DSG and wondering if its worth the upgrade then, based on my experience so far, it most certainly is! Clocked up 85 miles yesterday driving around the New Forest...

Its squished one inch or so down from the top and has made a halo type mark visible along with the body against the dark background. Sent...

Re: New GTI + delivery

The red inserts look hideous in pictures and videos but are more subtle looking in real life and have a very slight metallic sheen.
