Re: 1.0 TSI - 115ps remap to 150ps

Re: 1.0 TSI - 115ps remap to 150ps

I will consider a remap when my car is out of normal warrantee that's 3 years I think. I wont push it to 150HP but I do like the thought of 130, just 14HP more than factory 116hp. having said that I understand every car loses 1 x HP per year? is that correct? if it is I will actually be getting 127...

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

I've had my SE for two weeks and whilst is does have two small niggles, I'm really enjoying driving it. VW have spent money on the right areas of the car, quality leather and soft touch plastics - shame it didn't extend to door capping too, but you can't have everything. Tech is just great, infotai...

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

I have just been driving a Citroen 3 for a 4 hour round trip. it was derv manual and very spongy. I got into my POLO and realised what a great car the Polo really is. sturdy, well planted on the road, agile and just a class place to be for my drive home. Thank you Citroen for making me realise just ...

Re: Build week 36 for My Polo GTI +

Fingers crossed our cars get here before the brexit tax will come in. I’m assuming if the cars reach us before 1st November we won’t have to pay the tariff which is looking to be 10.5 %. If it does get added will they add it to my PCP repayments or expect a lump sum? I’m completely in the dark over...

Re: Polo GTi 316bhp

Yea nice idea and for a technical test its impressive. but for everyday ownership I think IF I wanted 350BHP I would turn to the golf R and have done with it. At least you know the whole car is designed to cope with the power. stage 1 mods On the Polo (once warrantee is passed) seems ok, but TBH I ...

Re: Build week 36 for My Polo GTI +

Last week in august I think, so its 2 weeks to manufacture an load to a ship then 6 weeks to get into the uk. so you are looking at in the UK end Oct and with you first or second week in Nov. To be fare I have seen some on here get the car a week or so earlier than that.

Re: Colour

TBH I would probably go for the red. It kind of feels traditional for a GTI. second choice white. in any other grade Polo I think the Blue looks good

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

That fun is why you get the GTI. pleased your loving it. No point in having the GTI and doing the speeds I do..lol :D

Do you think there is more power to squeeze out of the 2.0l TSI? and if so will it be possible to get that extra power down to the road?

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

It may be too early to tell whether the 2019 examples are better built. I wasn't aware of any issues on mine until the car was 7 months old. So far our 2019 GTI+ is fault free, but others here have reported tailgate issues on their brand new 2019 examples that my 2018 one had (needing a bit of a sl...

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

I'll owned my 2018 Polo GTI+ a year next week. The only two issues were minor trim issues with a plastic clicky sound coming from the glove box lid, and a buzz from the passenger door at certain frequencies when playing music. Both fixed under Warranty. I'm otherwise super happy with my fault free ...
