Re: Insurance and alloys.

I know this will seem daft but am i correct in selecting YES and then NO as my alloys were £600? If the only modifications to your car is the alloy wheels, then I’d say you’re correct in answering ‘Yes’ to the first of those two questions (your alloy wheels worth less than £1,000 is an acceptable m...

Re: Insurance and alloys.

Also, it might be handy to have winter tyres on these old 15" rims for winter use, and again advise your insurance company that you will be swopping wheels over every year. I thought about that but I'm selling my 15s as I use a work van monday to Friday. Thanks everyone else, I'll phone the quotes ...

Insurance and alloys.

My insurance is due and I've changed to Portago 16" alloys from 15" (cant remember style name) do I put these as a mod on insurance or not?
I'm thinking not as the new alloys are still VW alloys for the polo just not the ones that came with it when j bought it.

Any help would be appreciated

Re: Headlights

Either that is a funny question, or you have asked it in a funny way, the indexing tag is there so that you orientate the bulbs in exactly the correct way. I'm not trying to say that from my past experience that fitting these bulbs correctly is easy by the way! If you have had both bulbs out and no...

Re: Healights

I'm pretty happy with: Philips WhiteVision Xenon effect -- I see you've detailed about them in your thread, however. A friend of mine is running 'NIGHTEYE LED Headlights' - which just screw in to the same fitting. They're bright- seriously bright- but the spread of light is awful. Are you running t...

Headlights

What's the best Halogen (legal) bulbs?
I've tried Osram Nightbreaker (rubbish) and Phillip's White Vision.
Phillip's pnes looks good but the range was rubbish as was the Osram ones.

Re: Alloy Upgrade

Was only able to get this picture before losing the light but absolutely buzzing with the new alloys!! And so you should be! They look great on your car. 😎. Good to see you’ve got some good protection on them and some decent tyres too. Thanks! Will get more pics tomorrow after work. Made sense to d...

Re: Alloy Upgrade

If your car came with a 15" full sized steel spare wheel, and your car now has 16" alloys on it, then that 15" original spare wheel is still okay for that car. Put it this way, my wife has a 2015 VW Polo 1.2TSI SEL bought new, that car came with 16" alloys as standard and a 15" steel spare wheel. E...
