    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...

    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...

    The UK’s Santa Pod Raceway is the site of a lot of great VW racing, and in April it celebrated the 2018 GTI SPRINGfest . As you’d imagine, there were some great Golfs, as well as a few other VAG products that took to the drag strip. The racing looked great and some cars even ran into the...

    Although it came as a result of some unfortunate dealings in the head office, VW’s WRC program did what most performers can only dream of doing: quitting while it was on top. Having won the WRC championship four years straight, VW’s team left the sport before it could be beaten. So sudden was...

    The 2018 Polo GTI R5 saw it's tarmac stage test debut and it's a cornucopia of sideways action and chirping wastegates. The first tarmac test day for the new VW rally car took place in the Austrian town of Strallegg. The twisty, windy mountain roads are the perfect place to put the rally Polo...

    Before you and your team of semi-professional rally mechanics take to the woods to inevitably win the WRC2 championship in your Polo GTI R5, Volkswagen Motorsport had to shake it down to make sure it was ready for competition. We’ve been hearing over the past couple of weeks just how well...
