Re: Michelin PS4

Can someone tell me what the rim protection is like on the PS4? It's great on Primacy 3, but not so good on Primacy 4.. Very good - there's a rim overhang of about 8mm. You'd have to seriously clout the tyre to scrape the wheel. Cheers Squire, that's confirmed my decision to move over from the Prim...

Re: Interest rate drop on GTI

Just noticed a very low offer on Carwow for a stock GTI plus that includes a £1000 “dealer contribution”. It might be on its way more generally, just not published yet. We are planning to pay cash for the wife’s car in a couple of weeks, this might change the calculations. From what I've read, it's...

Re: 2019 lead times

Are there any Polo models that don't have long lead times, or that can even be delivered from stock? I'm thinking of replacing my ageing 3-door Fiesta with a new Polo this year, because I now need to carry multiple passengers often. All I really want is an SE 1.0 TSI 95PS Manual. I'm not bothered m...

Re: About to buy - introduction

It is a real shame that the Beats audio upgrade is not available on this model. Anyway, any comments or suggestions around the options or configuration? It's going to be your car so spec it how you want it. I specced the rear view camera and find it really useful as it gives a view that you wouldn'...

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

First time I've owned an auto too, but given a choice, I'd have opted to a manual. DSG can only anticipate your wishes so far, I do still find it not doing what I want on occasion, usually wanting to accelerate hard from 45 when the car's in 6th. Going 6th to 3rd directly in a manual is a hell of a...

Re: Beam length (LEDs) these shine a little short no!?

A few with LED headlights have noticed this. I ended up adjusting mine manually, although there are some that say the new heights should be programmed or at least validated by VCDS. More on the topic here viewtopic.php?f=71&t=72264

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

I'll owned my 2018 Polo GTI+ a year next week. The only two issues were minor trim issues with a plastic clicky sound coming from the glove box lid, and a buzz from the passenger door at certain frequencies when playing music. Both fixed under Warranty. I'm otherwise super happy with my fault free ...

Re: Coming from a Golf GTI mk7.5

My comparison was made last Summer when I got my GTI+, with the facelifted non-performance (standard) GTI. Hadn't realised it had put on so many pounds (weight and cost) since the standard one was dropped. I presume PP/R bigger rear brakes are now standard across the Golf GTI variants, and that LSD...

Re: Coming from a Golf GTI mk7.5

For every troublesome Polo, there'll be a troublesome Golf. Apart from upper door cards and interior door handles being lower grade plastic than the Golf, the Polo is pretty much on par for quality. The fact it's only 40kg lighter than the Golf is demonstration that they're just as solid. I've had ...

I had forgotten - our 2019 GTI+ had an incorrectly fitted door frame rubber that I had to tuck in myself and wait a week for it to recover to it's intended shape.
Out of interest, was there any diffenerce in the headlamp beam aim on your 19 compared to your 18 car?
