Re: How are the inside of your GTi's holding up?

Don't have a polo gti but, as with rattles in general you can fix them yourself such as the height adjuster which a lot of vw cars get. It's just a matter of removing the interior panels. You could get a full interior covering of sound deadening by an audio install place for under £400 and you've ha...

Re: What did you and your 6R/C do today?

Thinking of doing this to the Golf. Where did you get the insulation pack? Did you manage this without breaking any clips? Thanks I made up my insulation pack myself, mainly from one company for the doors as the links below; https://www.deadening.co.uk/products/dodo-dead-mat-hex-roll https://www.de...

Re: What did you and your 6R/C do today?

The doors are done they were awful I don’t know how they let it out of the factory im with that much space to create noise https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171030/f8b7b50b8ccb4b444fcca2649ec0579c.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171030/c6386a487770551845f1d6dc7978238b.jpg https://uploads.tap...

Re: 1.4 idle noise

I've the same engine and mine's the same, 4 years and 32k later hasn't skipped a beat. Just the natural noise of the engine, should hear the mk5 ea118 engine it sounds like a sewing machine.

But as always if it's under warranty and you're worried take it in, it's free!

Re: 2018 Polo NEW SHAPE

My biggest disappointments with the GTI are definitely no 3 door option but mainly power output. 189 v 197hp and probably not huge weight difference to 6C.....performance wise there will be little or nothing in it. The 1.8 is typically received as being a sweeter, revvier unit than the 2.0..also I ...

Re: Changing from RCD310 to 510

For dab you’ll need to change the aerial on the roof the non-dab and dab look the exact same. The parking sensors will show up on the rcd510. To add bluetooth you need a separate module and loom, then the microphone kit around £200 all in for it IIRC. The RNS315 offers integrated bluetooth so all y...

Re: VW authorised Tuners

Has anyone tried asking their local "GTI World" VW main dealer for advise on this, I'd think that ABT and AMD are as close to "VW tolerated" tuners as it gets in UK? Racingline are VW’s mountune, they do remaps, but their part range is generally just rebranded stuff like Eibach springs, and Milltek...

Not quite what I’ve done, but My sound deadening arrived so now I should hopefully have enough to do behind the door cards on both the polo and the golf [emoji4][emoji4]

Re: Head Unit from Scrapyard

Look up Alex Retrofit on facebook, he’s a dedicated VAG retrofitter and sells RNS310 and RNS510 w/ bluetooth modules for market value and can fit them if you’re near him. Bought a RNS310 from him on monday for £320 posted.

Re: UK configurator and brochure / price list available

I'm currently driving a 1.4 TDI Polo SE... and I love it. It's so cheap to run! My first car. I was convinced to come in and talk about upgrading to a Polo Match a few months ago... but then heard rumour about this model. But looking so far, it seems expensive and not all that great. The Polo Match...
