So apparently there is now a 1.0 Evo engine...
Reading the review, all they have done is remove the Turbo-Charger, making the car worse !!??!!

Re: Polo 1.5TSI EVO

Annoyingly, the new Audi A1 model is available with a 1.5 engine as well as the 2.0 (+ the 1.0 engine)

WindScreen wiper fouls bonnet ..!

I have a MY16 BlueGt. Not had it long :: When washing my car I like to raise the windscreen wipers off the screen. On this car, I cant raise the drivers side blade because the metal arm hits the bonnet (just where the blade hinges). Anybody else had this problem ; are they all like that ??

Re: Best Armrest

I found it easy.. the base just fits into the origial cup-holder and there is a bracket with screw holes to secure it (I haven't used it though, as it seems secure without) Un-obstructive? yes, it can be slid forwards or back to suit yourself Quality -- I haven't seen an original VW armrest, but I b...

BGT with standard exhaust is not a noisy car, it sounds as if it is now performing as VW intended.
Yep - mine is very quiet.....!

Any chance they've stopped taking orders for the GTI/GTI+ in the UK until they clear the backlog?......

Re: Gti reappears on Configurator - manual G/box

Going slightly off GTI subject Does that mean a manual 1.5TSI "evo" 150ps R-line Polo might finally be available for 2019? rather the only 1.0TSI 115 (or 95ps) option before the nothing jump between in engines till the 200ps GTI?

Yes, please post an autoscan of your car and we'll have a look.
I don't know how to do that without a cable (thanks for the offer to look though..)

Dink - thanks for that bit of info -- will have a read through later on

Possible to adjusting the auto lights sensor..?

I haven't had my BlueGt (66 plate) very long.
I find that, in 'auto' setting, my headlights are on during fairly good light conditions.
Is there a way to adjust for when they come one without using VCDS ??

thanks
