I’ve just bought a 1994 MK2F, and wanted to put some new wheels on it. It’s currently got the stock alloys on it. I wanted to get the teardrop wheels from the Mk2 golf GTI, but wondered if they would actually fit? Can anyone help?
Precedent case ruling

Hi I have a immaculate 1.2 o7 plate polo that I bought 7 months ago one lady owner and has covered 66,000 miles it has had regular oil and filter changes is this now considered high mileage now for this engine? as it has a strange slight rattle and a knocking noise at high rpm approximately 3000 rpm under very light load but Completely Disappears under heavy load of heavy acceleration ! I was told that this is very strange as if it is engine knock it’s normally the other way around as anyone had this same experience? I have considered going up a step in oil to 5w 40 instead of 5w30 has anyone tried this . this car has never been thrashed Or I’ll treated in its life ! Please help it is driving me insane ! As I want it running perfect
many thanks. Richard
I have a Polo 1.2 from 2004. I want to replace a part and I cannot find it anywhere.
Inside the engine plastic cover, there is a rubber gasket, that is at the connection with the throttle body. Basically this gasket sits on the top of the throttle body.
Could you please help to find this part? I looked everywhere, but I couldn't find it.
Please find for sale my Polo GTi registered 2006. 2 previous keepers and I’ve owned it for over 5 years now since 16k miles. This is quite possibly the lowest mileage 9N3 in the country with a genuine odometer reading of 30,650 miles which will rise slightly. The car has fully logged service history and has been serviced with genuine VW parts in the time I’ve owned it. I’ve got a folder full of receipts to back this up. The timing belt and water pump were changed at 30,500 miles.
The car is in impeccable condition inside and out. It’s always garaged when not in use and the first owner was a car collector who also garaged his collection. The interior is immaculate. Height adjustable front seats with under seat drawers. All the cloth is in as new condition. The car also has cruise control which is a very rare option.
As you can see exterior wise the car is very clean. There’s obviously the odd stone chip and a few small rust patches, but it’s not been touched with a spray gun so it’s a very honest example. I had the alloys powder coated when I first bought the car so they’re in good condition. There’s not a single curb mark on any of them and all of the Dunlop Sport Maxx tyres have good tread.
As for mods these are very subtle making this a really good sleeper. The front end has been polybushed. The car has also had a stage 1 remap done by Nick Wilkinson of Scarborough when I bought the car five years ago. This was not a flash and dash job, more a lot of work on a rolling road to produce a quick responding but smooth map for this car. BHP was taken up to 200bhp and I have the print outs to prove the work. The car really has to be driven to be appreciated.
June service, the car has two keys and a stack of receipts and paperwork. The car has a full 12 months MOT. If you want any more information please feel free to drop me a message.
