Re: Engine not running right

Sounds like it is putting itself into limp mode (safe mode) for some reason. Best to have it scanned (VAGCOM) to see if there are any faults logged in the ECU.

Re: External return spring for rear callipers

Same as above. Not sure if they have improved them internally but they look the same externally hence why I chucked a spare set I had on just to be on the safe side.

Re: Spax Springs

I had Spax -40mm springs and matching dampers on my 9n3 GTI, found them very harsh and uncomfortable, only lasted about a month before I removed them and bought a set of good quality coilovers.

Re: H&R 25/40 springs

Re: STICKING BRAKES

As above, pretty certain it is the hill hold system kicking in. It holds the car for the second it takes for you reaching the bite point of the clutch in a hill start situation after releasing the handbrake.

Check the owners manual for more detailed info.

Re: Ordering a new Polo GTi

Can confirm that you keep all the incentives that VW offer if you buy the car through VW Finance. The day after I got the car home I phoned VW Finance and just said I would like to withdraw from the finance agreement and the lady on the phone gave me a settlement figure which included a days interes...

Re: Top Gear drive the Polo Blue GT

Agree with Martin, I regularly get mid to high 50's on my weekly 40 mile round trip to visit my dear old mum. A mix of town, A road and motorway, its all about the driving style, smoothness and anticipation seems to be the key.
