Re: BlueGT, rattle and warranty

" I’d get a friend to sit in the car in the general area of the noise while I was driving" - tried that - the 'friend' couldn't help (rubbish ! :) ) "get a friend or family member to drive your car while you track down the source of the noise." -- that's my next thing to do the first part of your re...

BlueGT, rattle and warranty

Just after a little bit of advice please.

I own a 66 plate BlueGt with a ( interior?) rattle (..ukcing annoying !!).

There is still 2 months left on my 3 year warranty. Does the warranty cover such things as rattles ??

(i'd sort it myself, but just cant find it...)

Re: Third itteration of Polo coming?

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 ??

BGT with standard exhaust is not a noisy car, it sounds as if it is now performing as VW intended.
