Re: Lights?

0 is the off position (possibly daytime running lights)

The position you need is the dipped light (the one with the lines angled down.)

The main beam will be on the stalk.

but yes it is possible to retrofit that unit into a 6c

Re: media centre replacement screen

Even if you do need component protection removing it's only roughly 80 to get that removed.

I'd see if you can get a decent screen and give it a go

Re: 2017 Polo GTI - spare wheel/accessories

My 6c gti has 215/40/17 wheel/tyre combo and an 18" space saver. Which should still fit over my brembos.

Re: Is 35,000 miles too much for a 17 plate?

The polo GTI is not really that high performance to be worried about that mileage.

As long as the price is right for the mileage it should be fine.

Re: Retrofitting App Connect near impossible

You cannot buy the software. It's all controlled by vw all of the vw retrofit places have to go through vw. The reason i said the latter was b*******s was because i had my unit in my car for well over a week after having component protection removed. You have just the radio but once vw re enabled al...

Re: Retrofitting App Connect near impossible

Do they mean component protection or the FeC codes?

As if it's the later then they are talking b*******s.

It seems that no vw retrofit company knows how to do the FeC codes and just seem to think that the only way to do it is start with a brand new unit.

Re: Aftermarket stereo?

Not a clue tbh.

The reason i went to vw after i had component protection removed was because the coder i went too didn't know how to do it.

They seemed to know exactly what needed to be done.

The way i see it that it's about £200 to get back to where you started.

Re: Aftermarket stereo?

Not all cars have app connect even after week 22 2015 I've seen 2017 cars not have the option for app connect. The issue with coding is that vw charge a minimum amount to log into their system, so they can't charge less than that. The app connect is an FeC which doesn't need patching. I believe that...

Re: How Do you put a composition media unit in my 2016 6c polo for car play?

that unit still cannot have the car play upgrade 3Q0035820A

you would need a 3Q0035842(A/B/C) unit for the glove box.

i'm not sure on the screen in the dash as i didn't need to change that on mine.

am i right in thinking the composition colour is the one with the smaller screen?

Almost certainly.

How do you remap an electric car?

I suppose we will find out in the not too distant future.
It would guess that it would be case of upping current limit and adjusting switching frequency lol

Re: Brake Upgrade!!

You can use the existing 288mm calipers but the carriers are red on a gti so will look odd.

I do have a complete polo gti brake setup for sale if you do want to go down that route.

Re: Brake Upgrade!!

you can fit the 312mm if you have 288mm brakes to start with

if not then you would have to change the whole hub.

Re: after market retrofit Apple Car Play

I can't see that working as there is no way of setting the unit to display the output from it.

The best bet is to go the upgrade route as that can be done for less than 500 for a complete oem look.
