Re: Launch Control limits and 620Mile run in questoins

In the old 2002 days, the only cars that had launch control were Supercars and special edition BMW's etc which destroyed the clutch after 3 launches due to the power. In 2006-8 Golf's DSG golf's got the launch control after a hidden sequence again. Baring that in mind and advances in engineering, th...

Re: GTI 6c Diamond Cutting

Just had a set of 17" Merc Alloys done ( full face is diamond cut like the mk5 golf monza's ) for £380 but that's due to the amount I use them try £475 for a set of 4. My chosen Wheel refurb place in England is Pristine Alloys, at the end of the day it's all about quality. Do it once, do it right. A...

Re: What tyres?

'' Don't be tempted to go for wider tyres, unless you're willing for more roadnoise to be conveyed up into the chassis, and hence into the cabin. Leave wider wheels and tyres to the boy racers. For myself, it was a matter of deciding whether I really wanted to end up with a set of nearly-new spare ...

I take your point but I have had this issue from day one on collecting my car and the dealers should be correcting it
Maybe so but personally £5 and 2 minutes of my time is easier and more cost effective than continuous arguing with VW over £20 Window Wipers.

Re: Wiper judder poll

For everyone getting wiper judder Please note as a Part-Time Professional Detailer, from my experience wiper judder can be negated by taking the coating used on the windscreen and applying it to the wiper blades. Therefore I'd recommend getting your dealer to do this versus getting new blades, prim...

Re: What tyres?

Depends what you're after, but if you're after the best try using http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/ to find the best for your size :) I run Continental Premium Contact 6 but I have 17inch aftermarket BBS. The best for your size is Michelin CrossClimate Plus according to testing, that is if you're only a...

Re: What did you and your Polo do today?

Picked up my new polo last thurs so far enjoying it! With the Apple Car Play being pretty good. Unfortunately I’ve got the wiper judder problem but I will just get the Bosch aero twins I think. Gave it its 1st long drive on Sunday night 200 miles. Seemed to handle it fairly well but a little sluggi...

Re: Valeo or OE?

The quality is based off the quality of the internals, Valeo make the halogens for the polo and I think Hella tend make the xenon / leds, both good brands regardless. However you've purchased a chinese copy which won't perform as well as the Valeo they're virtually the same price so might as get the...

No reason why it shouldn't be perfectly ok if repaired properly, though I know where the OP is coming fron re: ...

Re: Boot Luggage Nets

An OEM one is the best one you'll get for the price ( about £50-60), other than that Weathertech are next best but they're £84.

Re: Winter Tyres guide

Winter tyres have saved me from a few accidents as well, and have actually embarrassed some cars with 4wd and summer tyres on them when the little polo gets up the hill and they don't :D Some of the best money you can spend is on winter tyres

Re: vagcom, carista, obdeleven tweaks

Vag-com consists of pretty much everything but requires extras for coding clocks and keys.

Carista is alright has most of the small tweaks for the average user

I haven't used obdeleven, but Vag-Com from Ross-Tech is the best by miles

Re: 2 holes in exhaust

Yep you're correct, generally the Engine light coming on and off is the exhaust. I'd put money on it as the polo's exhaust all seem to rust very quickly. You could take it to a car wash that has mot ramps and have a look yourself, just to confirm it in the mean time. I'd recommend getting a custom s...
