Re: polo GTI manual

Ha ha Just been looking myself. It suggests that new combined mpg will be 46.3mpg (6.1ltr per 100km). 138 co2 g/km Also manual model down as 44.8mpg (6.3ltr per 100km) with 142 co2 g/km I don’t think you were ever going to get 7 speed DSG this early in the life on Polo model run. I think this will b...

Re: Puddle lights

Last time I was checking, Audi had printed brochure available and this was long after VW had stopped the issuing of printed material.

It can only be a matter of time before the printing stops.

I like printed brochures but think it’s a dying format.

Re: 18 plate polo with no problems to date!

It’s a commonly held misconception that the A1, Fabia, Ibiza and Polo are built in the same platform. This is age dependent and when models have been released. So a 2018 Polo and Ibiza are both on MQB A0 platform. The Forthcoming A1 will be on the new MQB A0 platform. However the face lifted Fabia w...

Re: TSI badge

I haven’t seen any U.K. Polos with TSI badging. They just seem to come with Polo on the rear. Unless you have GTI and then it’s only GTI which appears.

Re: Polo one of the best selling cars in June

As an observation I don’t think the sales figures for Polos are anything out of the ordinary, or being held back by delays. I’ve looked at the monthly figures over last 3 to 4 years and the Polo has always been out by the Fiesta at a ration of around 2.5/3 to 1. On some good months it was 2 to 1, bu...

Re: Polo Performance News Snippets

What? if VW made a Polo GTI with the same engine (2.0) and fitted an electric motor in the boot to drive the rear wheels. It's a Polo, if you want something faster purchase an Audi TT 2.0 TPSI (310) Quarttro TTS @£41,205 Bargain !!! But where are you going to use all that power legally :?: The worl...

Re: Automatic braking

Thanks for your experiences with the ACC "AndyGTi". I was wondering how many segments you had to set it to, for safer driving, without too many emergency stops. I would think they could have a lot of problems with that out in Germany, when we were out there, you leave more than a cars length in fro...

Re: Automatic braking

Hi Alan Mc Thought I would give you and others my experiences of driving with ACC / Automatic Braking. I have a 2016 Golf R and love the ACC but there are a few things that I have picked up over last two years. The default position for ACC is third segment and at times (slower speeds say 30) can be ...

Re: Considering Polo 2018 (DSG SE)

Hi MasterRich Sounds pretty good if you can get hold of a Polo SE dsg. I think it would be a good choice over the Ibiza. Just wanted to say that the car you attached doesn’t have 15” Seyne wheels but 17” Bonneville wheels. Hopefully it was the colour which you were showing but I just wanted to menti...

Re: When will we get the 1.5 engine?

Yes, I have also been wondering about 1.5 Tsi Evo engine in a Polo. Spent last week looking at the price lists for Ibiza, Golf and T-Roc. Excellent reply from SRGTD, with the difference in price between Ibiza engines of around £1,000 and about £1,300 - £1,500 between engines in golf and T-Roc ( ok n...

Re: 2018 Polo NEW SHAPE

A golf gti would set you back about £25k even after carwow - I know as I’ve specced one up! If you add in climate to the polo gti plus so it has the same spec as a golf gti, a manual car will be about £22k BEFORE carwow prices, so probably at least 2k off there. I’m not sure the extra £5k for the g...
