Re: Water Pump 6c GTI

Does that include any sort of contribution from vw?

I'd definitely be looking for something as it seems quite a common fault.

Re: Heko Wind Deflectors

Can you get a set of just fronts for a 5dr? as the 3dr ones are different.

Re: Brembo GT Junior 323x28

Are these the same as the mk1 leon cupra R brakes?

If so then yeah I've fitted some on to my 6c gti.

Re: Best brake upgrade from 256mm without changing hub carriers

The 9n3 gti even had 288mm brakes up front.

I've got a complete 312mm setup off my 6c if you are looking for that

Re: DSG gearbox

my car has just been picked up by AA due to a gearbox issue. warning light came on saying gearbox in emergency mode. the car starts off in 2nd gear, skips 3rd, 5th and 7th gear. the fault code it threw was P0868 - Trans fluid pressure low. there are no leaks under my car so the transmission is not ...

Re: 6R Reverse and Parking Brake Cables

So you're suggesting to not wire up the parking brake cable, as it might disable some features? Also, I get what you're saying with regards to the camera side wired up to the reverse light. But there appears to be a cable for the reverse on the back of the head unit, any idea why this is or where i...

Re: 6R Reverse and Parking Brake Cables

Hey all, So i'm looking for some help. I've just bought an aftermarket head unit which allows a parking camera for my 2011 Match, so I thought - might as well install one! The head unit has a reverse and parking brake cable coming out of it, however I have literally no idea where these are meant to...

Re: Big brake upgrade 6r GTI

I'm running seat leon cupra R(mk1) brakes on my 6c gti. Both front and rear. They are 4 pot brembo calipers with 323mm discs front and 256mm vented rear discs. I also installed ebc yellowstuff pads all round. They are bolt on upgrade just need a set of hoses made up for the front. I'm looking to be ...

Re: Updated Performance Gearbox and Clutch Rumours 6c GTI?

Yes it is the dsg gearbox, I think maybe I have that problem at the moment, very clunky going in to 2nd and 3rd gear and if I push it hard I get emissions light and limp mode lol. Tbh I’m looking at anything as I’m planning on keeping the car for a while With a few mods planned I still believe that...

Re: Retrofitting Reverse Camera to 2016 Polo 6c Match

Just to wrap this up, I returned this kit & received a refund. The fact of incorrect connection details supplied with the item, a used part delivered (being sold as a new OEM VW item), and overall lack of clarity left me with no faith in the items supplied. This I did not know if I was chasing a re...

Re: Updated Performance Gearbox and Clutch Rumours 6c GTI?

Im guessing you are talking about the dsg box. Tvs has changed to a dq250 in one but you're looking at 4k+ for that. You can get an uprated clutch from luk but still has a limit of 470Nm (have heard they can still be hit or miss) The gearbox itself is fairly reliable (can suffer from mechatronic fai...

Re: 6C GTI Emissions Light and Limp Mode

i don't think i would not be quite so flippant to have to pay for it lol anything related to dsg boxes are not cheap. as soon as it is flagged as modified you will lose all warranty related to the drive train. i would be speaking to who mapped it and asking them to check 100% that the map was for th...
