    Hello, I have been reading this forum for a few days now to try and figure out how to install the RCN210 Chinese head unit and have a few issues I was wondering if you'd be able to help me with. I am new to the word of VAG modifications, I am helping out my cousin install a new radio in his...

    Hi, Just wondering what you think about this I bought a 2015 1.2 VW Polo a year ago ran all fine until yesterday. Driving along Big Bang and had to get towed away. Turns out some mechanical failure had caused a hole in my engine block. I always check my oil and don’t drive my car aggressively...

    Anyone know what spoiler this is? And what the side skirts for the spoiler are called? I can't find it anywhere. Bonus if you can link me it.

    G'day. I'm sorry if the whole power steering fault posts are wearing a bit thin these days. However I have not been able to find any info to help, or any posts that are relevant to my situation. So I have a 2004 Polo 1.4 16V RH drive. It has the TRW rack fitted with what I believe to be the...

  8. Car Purchasing Forum
    Hello! I need advice on what is a better purchase. I only need the car for maybe one-two years then I'll sell it. But which would be more reliable (given good maintenance), a new polo with higher mileage or an older Golf with lower. I'd really appreciate the advice!

    Hello all, I recently had my polo in the garage to have the coil pack fixed when getting the car back and parking up at home, I noticed the epc light came on and now there’s a strong smell of petrol. I’ve noticed my brake lights don’t work so thinking maybe need a new brake switch? Not sure...

  11. Polo
    Where to start... my first car was a Mk2 Polo Coupe and I owned a string of Mk1/Mk2/Mk3 Golfs and even a solo Mk3.5 convertible before family life took precedent as, with limited funds, it inevitably seems to do so they all went. On came a B5 Passat Wagon alongside a 9n2 Polo, a new Scirocco...

    The folks at Carbuzz recently reported that Volkswagen might be considering a Tiguan GTI and, as you might expect, the rumor caught on. With due respect, though, we’re skeptical. Our skepticism stems not simply from the fact that VW has never really shown an interest in extending the GTI...

    Speaking to the UK's Car Throttle this week , Jost Capito, the head of R GmbH, had some hints to provide about the future of the sub-brand. And while a lot of it was reasonable, not all of it was what we wanted to hear. Perhaps the most disappointing revelation was that R is happy enough with...

    Volkswagen Motorsport is a lot like the rest of us. When there’s no Motorsport going on, they get a little bored. So the team in India took two weeks to build itself a little project. What it ended up with was a mid-engine Polo RX track toy making 240 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. The team is...

    Friend of the site Jamie Orr has been doing great stuff with Volkswagens for years now. And as you may know, there might not be a better authority on Harlequins anywhere. That’s why, Donut Media's Bumper 2 Bumper is featuring Orr’s gorgeous, highly Harlequinized Polo. The Polo was built for a...

    The G60. It's one of the more legendary labels in Volkswagen's past. If you're familiar with the Corrado, you probably already know that the G means supercharger but knowing why it got that label is a bit more mysterious. Not why it got the supercharger, that's pretty obvious, but instead where...

    Our personal biases frequently lead us to condemn any number of advanced automotive technologies. That’s partly because we’re dinosaurs who fetishize vintage automobiles that, in reality, are actually far worse than we like to pretend. But it’s also because most modern-day tech sucks harder than...

    What happens when an Up! GTI, a Polo GTI, a Golf GTI, and a Golf GTI Clubsport S go head to head? This may seem like a foregone conclusion.  The biggest one, making the most horsepower--the Clubsport S--should always win. But if you have a DSG going up against someone with bad reaction times in...
