Re: VW Polo 2014 5F Unit/Module

you can get the unit replaced for about £200 but that is not the point the unit should not be failing after 4 years. did you speak to vw uk or just the dealer? as the dealer will just fob you off saying they spoke to vw uk and they said no when in reality they just forgot i upgraded my unit in my ca...

Re: Footwell RGB Lighting

Thank you, but I’m a bit new to the whole electrical works, when I look at my fuse box under the steering wheel there are just a load of coloured pins with numbers on them, do I need to wire it into the back or something? I have no clue sorry! i know this may sound mean but i'd get someone else who...

Re: Which Remap is best?

You could get a tuning box from tdi-tuning for £370. It's apparently plug and play so you can just unplug it and it's like it never happened. Been eyeing it up myself. https://www.tdi-tuning.com/car/volkswagen/polo/18-gti-189-bhp-192-ps-141-kw-320-nm-236-lbft/crtd4-multi-channel-petrol-tuning-box-c...

Re: Eibach vs GTi springs

i have gone from stock 6c gti springs to eibach pro springs

i would say the stock springs are stiffer and offer worse ride quality.

Re: USB issue ? Mirrorlink

Samsung s8 and just a random asda cable.

I'm still going to get android auto as then I can actually use Google maps as a nav when I need it.

Re: VW Polo 2014 5F Unit/Module

If it was me I would be kicking up a fuss as something like that should last the life of the car. (If the CD mechanism went wrong I could sort of understand that)

Find vw uk customer service number and ring them.

I'd be looking to have at least 80% of the cost to be covered.

3q0035842b is the part number for a unit that will take app connect upgrade (also a revesing camera input)

the price has gone up slightly since i bought one. you just need the control box in the glove box and not the screen

Re: USB issue ? Mirrorlink

I was quoting VW prices I was put off looking at a non VW solution, as I wasn't sure about compatability issues with the cars electronics. Hands up, while I love cars, I have 10 thumbs when it comes to fetttling stuff. I have had the car for around 6 weeks and it makes me smile every time I see it ...

Re: USB issue ? Mirrorlink

The phone was set to allow for data transfer. I have tried it with all the options that LG offer for connection via USB - needless to say none of them worked. I went for Mirrorlink as it was £200, as opposed to £600 for the sat nav upgrade or £1,000+ for a change of head unit. The lack of informati...

Re: USB issue ? Mirrorlink

mirror link is terrible. it has been superseded by android auto / car play so most apps have been updated to work with this a leave mirror link behind. the only thing i could suggest is did you allow it to have full access to your phone when you first plugged it in? this is why i have gone to the ef...

According to ETKA:
Blue GT 6R 1,4 L: 55 mm from cat to rear silencer which is 50 mm. Tail pibes 65 mm.
GTI 6R 1,4 L: 55 mm all the way. Tail pibes 65 mm.

Blue GT 6C 1,4 L: Same as 6R.
GTI 6C 1,8L: Same as 6R.
I wonder how big MILLTEK do their talepipes, maybe 75mm?
milltek tailpipes are 80mm
