Re: Lowering springs

Yes, I ordered option 1 for my standard 6C. Option 2 is for GT and GTI models.

Re: Wind deflectors

Quite a few aftermarket ones think Climair are the most popular choice, however I went with genuine VW ones , more expensive I know but just looked better.

Re: New to VW

If you want some 16 inch genuine VW alloys I currently have my 16 inch Rivazza alloys for sale complete with tyres and new set of centre caps. Tyres fitted are 215/45R16 .
I'm selling because I went up a size to 17 inch.
Pm me for more details.

Re: VW dealer fit (upgrade) Sat Nav

I was another one interested in this particular upgrade as mentioned but I've decided against it on the grounds of the extra 'top updates' and the poor signal strength received. I can't justify £600 plus when I don't regularly use sat nav anyway,and when I do I just use Google maps on my phone so it...

Re: Tyre size

Now thinking 215/45 R17 , little more profile than 215/40 R17's and with eibach springs should fill up the arch better?

Re: Tyre size

Other dimensions which should work are 205/45 and 205/40. 195/45 should also work, but this is a very unusual dimension for 17". https://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=215&aspect=40&diameter=17&wheelwidth=7&offset=46&width2=205&aspect2=45&wheel_size=17&wheel_width=7&offset2=46 So the 205/45 , ...

Re: Which lowering springs. Eibach or H&R

I've been looking into these. I've found 2 sets but unsure which to get, both Eibach. The only difference I can see is the axle weight difference so which do I get?
Set 1 front axle load 860 rear axle load 840
Set 2 front axle load 960 rear axle load 840?
Why the difference?

Re: Mud flaps

I did think very briefly about mud flaps when I first purchased my polo, but having fitted r line side skirts these at the least the front won't fit anymore. I've also seen polos with them fitted and they just look so out of place and for very little benefit apart from cosmetic look?

Re: Sat Nav

I too was really interested in the Kenwood upgrade unit and was looking forward to seeing how 'hutch' had gone on with his installation, but as mentioned we've heard nothing back from him? For the money £600 plus the future update costs and signal issues ivd now decided against the idea. For what I ...
