Re: Looking for a GTi+ - Climate & dsg query

That is a hefty price there for climate control. The equivalent price here fitted from factory equates to approx. 205 pounds, seems that distance from factory may be a factor I guess. They charge what the market will bear. At the moment, with a poor pound, most VWs are dearer in Germany than the UK...

Re: Looking for a GTi+ - Climate & dsg query

As you say , climate , nowhere to be seen on stock or demo cars , once you have had climate it would’ve really hard to live without it . I had to do factory order back in May , thankfully car almost here , ( just arrived in Emden! ) I think the DSG question is about the 6 speeds ability to handle t...

Re: Knocking noise at 1000 RPM in neutral

I have a chirpy/squeaky rattle at low speeds, 5-25mph, more prevalent under light braking, and on the passenger side, seemingly not in the cabin. I'm convinced it's a bust top mount bearing on the front passenger side. Happens in a straight line as well as a turn and appears slightly less often when...

Re: Coolant and oil levels

My 2018 GTI+ got its first service in August and hadn't needed an oil top up between 0 and 8500 miles.

Re: Lease on GTi vs GTi+

I'm toying with leasing one of these and have the following offers on 5000mls per year (most my driving is local) on a 1+36 deal so no deposit. GTI = £216 per month inc VAT GTI+ = £238 per month inc VAT Do you think the + version is worth the extra? (price is for flash red) The plus comes in at rou...

Re: Reversing camera alignment / question

Like Scottyboy, my camera has about 6mm black banding across the top and I can see the 2 corners of my bumper. My black band is totally straight.

Re: Knocking noise at 1000 RPM in neutral

Surely, your Polo's still under warranty, Stop asking in the forum, take it back to the dealer, it's their problem. With all due respect, I know quite a few people have mentioned this, but is there really a need for the aggressive response. we are here to answer questions if we can and suggest the ...

Re: What did you and your Polo do today?

I was out in the wife's 2019 GTI+ today, so couldn't help drawing some comparisons between my 2018 GTI+ and her 2019 GTI+. The 2019 one is consistently 10% thirstier than my 2018 (pre-PPF) one at all stages of the journey. I'm at 9.5k miles, the wife is at 2.5k miles. I don't think the difference is...

Re: New Audi A1 18" on a Polo GTi?

Those A1 rims look a lot like the 17" Parkers on the GTI as standard. Brescias look far nicer.

I'm pretty sure the black bits on those Audi rims are screwed in black plastic inserts.

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

I have had my polo 15 months now and I am on 17385 miles. I am getting close to my second service I assume this is the so called big service? the first service I had back in jan at 8,800miles I am told the service is every 10k miles. so I am thinking the second service should not be until 20k miles...

Re: What MPG are owners getting in the real world?

Doing a 200 mile trip to London tomorrow. First time properly taking the GTI on the motorway for an extended period of time. My current work commute (12.5 miles) I'm averaging between 35-38mpg. Can I expect this to be higher for my journey tomorrow? Car is approaching 500 miles so hopefully this wo...

Re: what replaces the 6c Blue GT

^ just to add to the above, it does seem to be almost exclusively an issue when the 1.5EVO has a manual box, but also, almost exclusively with the 130ps variant, not the 150ps. We were considering an Ibiza 1.5EVO FR in April 2018 and the local SEAT dealerships seemed to be hamstrung with WLTP, unabl...

I noticed 2018 P GTI models don’t have USB ports in the rear?
That's correct - it was added at model year 2019, so all PPF equipped GTI+ from October 2018 have it. My May 2018 built GTI+ doesn't have them, but the wife's March 2019 built GTI+ does.
