Re: Official Polo carpet mats and some winter tyres

Getting fed up now re the winter tyres not selling and want rid. So, SE owners, they are now listed on ebay as an auction with a starting price of £54. That's 4 Hankook winter tyres for £54. Yes you read that right, 4 tyres for £54. Price includes 4 zip up tyre bags with carry handles. Someone must ...

Re: Official Polo carpet mats and some winter tyres

Thanks for the input. I've updated the advert on Ebay and Facebook already but forgot to update the one on here.

Any thoughts on the tyres?

Re: Official Polo carpet mats and some winter tyres

I've had absolutely no interest in either the tyres or the mats which are listed in the parts section on here, on Ebay and on Facebook marketplace. Can anyone give me their opinion on the price and if you think its overpriced, what would be the most you would pay? I know that not offering delivery c...

Re: The end has come

Collected it a couple of days ago and very pleased. Drove up to Buxton yesterday on a mixture of country roads and town driving and averaged 48mpg which is decent. Obviously its a bit chalk and cheese with the Polo but the infotainment is broadly the same. Nice green colour scheme on the menus thoug...

Hankook winter tyres - New lower price

These are the highly rated Hankook winter i*cept RS2 winter tyres. Whenever I have changed from summer tyres, I've noticed immediately how much more grip there is in the wet and how much quieter they are. Last winter, I got to test them on snow on some side streets in Buxton and they made mincemeat ...

The end has come

I've had 18 months of happy motoring in the Polo but after careful consideration, I've decided to change to something more practical. I bought the Polo just before meeting my future Mrs Stark and a house purchase is this years big plan plus we would like kids. So, after some research and a test driv...

Scraping sound from brakes

This has been getting progressively worse so I'll book the car in at a local garage rather than VW as its not a warranty issue. Basically its the very common noise many people encounter when braking at low speed. Sounds like a loud scraping noise when pressing the brake pedal but its not as noticeab...

Thinking of buying winter tyres?

Hello all. I created a topic in the chassis section but thought I'd post a link to it here given the awful weather of late and that winter is almost upon us now. I have just had mine fitted again and how reassuring they have been :D

Re: Winter Tyres guide

Despite having used winter tyres since 2011, I still forget just how much better they are than summer tyres in the wet when its cold.

I was driving in this week's relentless heavy rain and temperatures dropped to 2C. The tyres made it feel like I was driving on dry tarmac. Superb :D
