Re: Car Value

Hum, on that age of car I'd expect We Buy Any Car to give a depressingly low price - then pester you for years with the offer of new unbeatable prices - w**kers! Oh when you turn up to let them see the car be prepared for them to half that price due to small imperfections, which is strange as it is ...

Re: New owner of a polo blue gt.strange noise on cold start

Noticed a difference between that engine and the old 1.4 16v - ha ha, yes I bet you have noticed quite a bit! My wife went from the old 1.4 16v 75ps to a 1.2TSI 110PS and she noticed the change! I am still quite happy using my daughter's old 1.4 85ps Ibiza while my Audi S4 rests in the garage! That ...

Re: Polo Match - Underseat Drawers?

Ah, maybe need to check up these numbers again for specific models - I know that for my Audi S4, there were a few options due to Super Sports front seats of one of the normal options of seats etc - and now that you have mentioned it, maybe stop/start or not!

Re: Polo Match - Underseat Drawers?

I'd think that most of the time the "fitting of under seat drawers" is more about "it is possible - so why not?" - I can't really remember what is in the drawers under the seat of my Audi S4, but I seem to think that as well as maybe other stuff, I have put a HiVi vest in each - ...

Re: Car Value

If I were you, I'd be dropping by a supermarket and check out the Parker Guide which most of them stock. Depends on how you are selling it and if it is being chopped in against a newer car, very few prices are fixed in stone!

Re: Polo Match - Underseat Drawers?

I can just about buying the same thing for my 2011 Audi S4, fitting was easy enough without removing the seats. I have the list of parts needed for my wife's 2015 Polo SEL but she is very indifferent about having this new "function" after having the same thing fitted at factory to her prev...

Re: Strong Petrol Smell in 6R 1.2 TSI

It does sound like the fumes are being drawn in to the cabin via the heater inlet, a small quantity of petrol will go a long way though, but you don't want to be in that situation, ie petrol being released into the engine area. If it is a small quantity of fuel escaping then it would not necessarily...

Re: Problem with the brand new Polo Match

I think that a different version would make it a different "sales model" so that might end up being a sticking point, so a Polo is a Polo is a Polo will not be quite true in this case. Or different "sales designation" - same problem possibly!

Oh, I must try harder then, well maybe not as I don't want to make more space available in the tank and just end up running out of fuel!

Re: Weird fuel gauge behaviour

51 litres, 51 litres? I ran my wife's August 2015 Polo 1.2TSI 110PS SEL down to about 20 miles range on Sunday night (518 miles) and managed to force 41 litres into it, that is the most (equal) that I have ever stuffed into it - and I know that I should have stopped at 39 litres!!

Re: 9N3 Engine disconnected wire

Well that is terrible, lucky you still have some warranty life left, if you are in the AA you can, I think/thought, get them to check a car over before you buy it if it has not already had the AA Approved guarantee on it already - but as always, these guarantees come at a price though this inconveni...

Re: problems starting

Someone having a problem like that would be well advised to buy a scan tool, then you could log/write down what you see when things are okay - and so you would be able find out what is not happening wrt the immobiliser when things are "bad". Thinking out of the/a box:- this is not the star...

Re: 9N3 Engine disconnected wire

BBM sounds okay, I think that the "knock sensor" is just a rugged microphone that is bolted lightly on to the cylinder head and its task is to listen for the onset of pinking or knocking which is caused by poor fuel quality and/or air leaks etc. I'm just surprised that VW group have not bu...

Re: Warning Lights and limp Mode

Did you park it so that it ended up being held by the engine and not completely by the handbrake, if so, you might now have an engine timing problem. Scan tools will not report that until it is well out I think.
