Re: Fog lights install.

Typically the fog lights from other models will not fit that car. I'd expect that you will need to trawl ebay for them, first use an on-line VW parts listing to get the part numbers then take it from there. In the past there would have been aftermarket kits to help you achieve what you are aiming to...

Re: Body Roll

I think that you will find that VW group, like all other mass car manufacturer, has designed these cars to be set-up for safe handling, you have now removed some of that by adding that rear ARB, now I think that the front of the car will probably give you a very big fright when it snaps away, so may...

Re: Vw Polo 6R dash indicator not working.

Maybe you need to confirm that it is not only the dashboard indicator "tell tail" but also the external indicators on that side - or the external indicators work okay but the dashboard "tell tail" does not! Also, when this is happening, try the hazards switch and make sure that i...

Re: Polo 1.4 upgrade to bluegt worth it?

I can't say categorically, but I'm sure that the 1.4FSI 16V 80PS engine that was in the Polo 9N Sport was just a variant of the BBY/BBZ indirect, or manifold injection (or multi point injection) engines. There were 3 variants, the 75PS, the 80PS(FSI) and the 100PS - the 80/85PS was FSI technology an...

Re: Yellow engine symbol on dash

On that version of Polo, any faults that have been logged will remain in memory, so don't worry if that light does not come back on regularly, the faults that were causing it come on will still be held in memory, unlike some new cars were they get cleared if they are low priority, which is a nuisance!

Re: New car - defective / damaged car seat (Alcantara)

Well, put it this way, if I had paid what you probably paid for that upgrade, I'd expect perfection. (I really really did want to spec that on my wife's Polo 1.2TSI 110 SEL back in April 2015 when I ordered it, but I found the cost unacceptable to me, especially as the leather is not even leather). ...

Re: Front brake upgrade

First of all, which brakes are currently fitted to that car, and which engine? What I am getting at is, the lower powered cars up to the ones with 256mm discs, do not have a separate calliper mounting bracket, so the callipers bolt directly onto the hub assembly - so if you want to increase the disc...

Re: Yellow engine symbol on dash

Seriously there is no point in guessing, you do need to get that car scanned to find out what is triggering that indicator, just changing things that might be wrong/faulty can cost a lot of money and still not fix a fault. If necessary, buy a cheap VAG scan tool and see what it tells you.

Re: Auto folding mirrors and 'that' cable to connect car

A suitable tool for making changes to your car is VCDS and you can buy it from lots of places including Ilexa and Gendan for roughly £225.

Re: Engine light

Seeing as that car has a "dubious reliability" engine fitted, maybe play safe and get it scanned with fully VW compliant scan tool.

I think that it more likely to be down to training, you must make it understand what you expect of it before it gets too set in its ways!

I'd think that is the correct answer, why make life harder than it needs to be, are Skoda using many of these 1.0TSI engines yet?

Re: Smashed Mirror

£55 for a heated mirror glass - ouch, ouch, ouch! I trashed both my old Passat ones years ago by misunderstanding when they were actually on - and burnt out the heater tapes, it was only £30 each then, though maybe 10>15 years ago. I'd think that you will need to change that glass quickly or it will...
