Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Are you having another Polo GTI+ Joe? Yeah I’ve ordered another one but in Deep Black Pearl with red dash this time for a change with Blindspot monitoring on top of what I had before. Might swap the order to a manual when that comes available to see what that’s like. They don’t begin production aga...

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Looks like I may be saying goodbye to my Polo GTI after just under 3 months. Done just over 4500 miles and I have really enjoyed it for the most part. Few teething problems to begin with but the engine has now loosened up nicely and all the issues have been ironed out. Got someone coming to buy it ...

Yeah mine did it when I got it, take it in to your VW dealer and I believe the pack it out to stop the rattle [emoji106]

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Impressions of the car on the trip. A bit more road noise than I expected with a strange change in tone crossing the white lines. The wipers were quite noisy ( not from the screen) from the motor and mechanism. Interesting, can anyone else make some comments about general refinement, especially if ...

Re: GTI plus spare wheel

As VW have removed the headlamp washers from the package I was wondering what is under the boot floor. I know the battery is in the boot so is there room for any sort of spare wheel or is it a squirty can and fingers crossed? Got a space saver in my GTI Plus [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tap...

No mate but you can buy Golf GTI key tips and file them down to fit [emoji106][emoji41]

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

I was past the running in software stage but the difference was rather dramatic after filling up with V Power I thought I’d share my experience. The fuel is different from Tesco 99 as that is 5% ethanol so I’ve read anyway. I’ll be using V Power now as a result of the change definitely! [emoji106] S...

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Just to let you guys know, I’ve tried the 3 main fuel Tesco 99, BP Ultimate and Shell V Power and the car is far better running on V Power - now on 1300 miles and it’s just getting quicker and quicker [emoji106][emoji41]

Re: Maintainence book missing?

Hi Mike, VW have now gone digital with service history so you can either ask for a print out when you sell the car or you can view it in the meantime via the My Volkswagen app. Hope this helps :)
