Re: I’ve joined the GTI+ club!

Only thing I dropped was Climate which I think is over priced for a small car. I wish I'd been able to spec climate in my GTI, I'd have gladly spent the £290 for it, but it's a stock car. IMO little ages/cheapens the interior of a car more than old-fashioned heater knobs/dials. :( I prefer traditio...

Re: Help - Polo 2.0 TSI GTI DSG horrible noise from rear

So my car is 7 weeks old tomorrow and have not had this noise yet. The noise started 4 months in and 2000miles. When makes the sound you'll definitely hear it. To be honest it doesn't really bother me whenever I have a friend or family in the car we hum along with it. Its just become part of the ch...

Re: GTI Engine noises and performance issues

Coasting only works if your clutch is disengaged which if the gearbox was in eco you can feel that happening when approaching junctions and taking your foot of the throttle. However her gearbox once again is NOT in eco so engine braking is happening as it would in normal or sport modes. The engine ...

Re: Polo Ambient Light Partnumber

As far as I can see, they are included in the dash panels (numbers 7 and 8 ) for the dash.

It looks awesome

Looks great. Out of interest, is it any smaller than the Polo GTI wheel? I find the wheel on mine seems too big for the car.

Re: Finance Documents

I'm in the same boat as you here. Awaiting collection on Tuesday. My dealer said he had to request vw financial services to send the documents by email. Took around a day and a half for me to receive them I got sent all my documents by email about a week prior to collection of my car, and signature...

Re: GTI and GTI plus owners experiences

I forgot to mention that it occurs whatever the driving mode is (M, D or S); I usually drive on manual mode, thus not related to the gearbox. Definitely haven't noticed it.myself, now I'll have to look out for it. If you're in a bout of acceleration from a low speed and all the DSG has to do is ups...

Re: Finance offers changed waiting on delivery

Thanks monkeyhanger. I’ll have to check but if they don’t honour it they will lose the sale as I was told the final agreed cost was what the vw finance screenshot they gave me was. As soon as dealer opens in June I’ll have to confirm. All very frustrating. The finance deals on the rest of the range...

Re: Dashboard rattle

It will almost certainly be the handbrake button - put your finger on it if you hear a rattle to see if it goes away. Other common rattle on really crap roads (like those sections of motorway made from concrete blocks) from the front door opener surrounds. My handbrake rattles too. Any easy DIY fix...

Re: EL Light Install Polo AW 2019

Volkswagen Up GTI has the red light, I think that it looks incredible! :D Personally I think the red on the Up is too much. The white on the Polo is more classy. The Seat Ibiza can change the colours between white and red.. I don't know why Volkswagen didn't do the same with the Polo :( Now that wo...

Re: EL Light Install Polo AW 2019

So is this to replace the white light we already have with one of another colour of our own choosing + dimmability? Not sure whether to go GTI red, or will it look like a portable knocking shop from Amsterdam? :lol: Volkswagen Up GTI has the red light, I think that it looks incredible! :D Personall...
