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

Blind Spot Monitoring doesn't work in a parking scenario, as it only comes into operation at speeds over 9MPH (and is deactivated at speeds less than 6MPH) and is specifically used for detecting moving vehicles in adjacent lanes in a motorway scenario. Rear Traffic Alert which comes in conjunction w...

Re: Making my Mk 6 polo tsi sound better

You could install a Kufatec sound booster if that’s your thing. https://www.sound-booster.com/ Have you done this? Based off the site I’m interested in this for my GTI+ but would want to understand install cost and the end sound. Not personally, it's not my thing, and I quite like the sound of my '...

Re: Creaking from Dashboard?

When the creaking is happening, try opening the glove box lid and applying both push and pull lateral pressure to the glovebox lid. This was the cause of my issue and the cure was a new lid under warranty.

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

Hello all I’m hoping to collect my Polo GTI in the next few weeks and wondered how many miles people get per tank. I’ve read through and seen a lot of posts on mpg already which vary quite a lot. I’ll be doing around 80 miles per day mainly motorway and a roads. Just wondered when driven sensibly I...

Re: Sensor and ACC

I mentioned a sensor warning recently which thankfully hasn't popped up again but today I was heading for work in a section of motorway that is down to 50mph for miles... yawn.... and I noticed myself catching up quite quickly with the vehicle in front. My ACC display looked as it does when it is o...

Re: Eco Mode - Have to Activate after Start

I really like the eco mode coasting, but find it annoying i have to select eco mode after each start to get it to activate. Am i missing a setting that makes the gearbox coasting persistent? In my car Individual mode remains selected through each ignition cycle. You could try applying the Eco Setti...

Re: Servicing interval

Mine had its first service just after 9400 Miles. The car is currently on 11250 Miles Service Display currently says: Inspection in 8800 mi or 419 days Oil change service in 7600 mi or 287 day So the 9400 Mile interval ties in with fixed servicing. My concern is that if I have the 2nd Oil change Ser...

Re: Reversing Camera Oddity?????

It’s not just you. The static guide lines are useless unless you want to park miles away from the kerb or whatever you are trying to line up with. The camera is helpful purely for the image, but for lining stuff up, I need to use my mirrors. The RNS 510 in a previous 2009 Tiguan was brilliant by com...
