Re: Servicing interval

They are responsible....till the warranty runs out :P :) My mps running on methanol spray uses full synthetic oil and needs changing every 5000 kms!(not miles) - that hurts my pocket a bit! lucky i use the polo for all the daily driving. For NZ first service is 15,000kms (they use mobil oil over her...

Re: Driving Modes - Post Ignition Restart

It's mode will be in the last you selected, but yes the gearing changes from S (sport) back to D(normal drive mode) To change it back after parking just pull the gear leaver all the way down and flick it back to sport mode gearing (flick down past drive) i do this often if i just want to move betwee...

For those who don’t like front assist, it looks as if there’s more to come;

Just reinforces my thoughts that I'll soon only buy older cars that don't have all this 'assistance' crap on them.
Sorry - i had to :lol: :lol:

Re: Ambient LED light strip on the dash

Other colours could be distracting at night. But when i am driving it's not too noticeable or interfere at all. And yes you can dim or turn it off. :) I guess for show/fun colour options would have been interesting, I have seen some review about the polo being very plastic(hard plastic) inside. Thos...

Re: Polo GTI security systems (THUMPS UP)

This morning on my way to work the car in front of me suddenly wanted to take a left turn without using his turn signal. I must say that i was rather impressed with the emergency brakes. If the feature wasn't there I would had ended up in the back of a volvo. Sorry, but exactly how would you have e...

Re: What did you and your Polo do today?

1. Very easy to cause tramping due to Bridgestone tyres. What on earth is tramping? I searched online dictionaries but it's not there so it must be slang. It's when the front wheels wheelspin violently and thump the wheels onto the ground when pulling away from a standstill. Can happen a lot on fro...

Re: LED Tail Light Bulbs

Yeah, am aware along with 2 rear fogs... Hence I want to double check the wires are there both sides. I'd imagine so, for this reason and for LHD too, sounds stupid having several looms all for the same job. Also means you might be able to see when going backwards! Shame they didn't incorporate LED...
