L468 SYJ 1993 Polo
I was wondering if anyone knew the whereabouts of this dark blue Polo, my boyfriend sold it in August 2016 and regrets it - hoping to know the whereabouts or potential of buying it back. It had a 1.3 engine in it when sold but originally had a 1 litre which I believe was sold with it. 
Its MOT ran out last summer and it's currently SORNed. 
Hoping somebody might be able to help!

The Polo Social - Your first time? What is it? What to Expect? How to Book!
The Polo Social, what is it?

The Polo Social is a social event held on 28 June ~ 01 July 2019 that is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club.
So, if you are part of a local club bring everyone down and grab a spot in the field.

What to Expect?
A relaxed event where you can catch up with other members, see their cars and meet new people from the club. Expect a big club meet which lasts the weekend with some beers and BBQs!
What’s going on?
Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ to return on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday daytime. 
Where is it?
The event is held at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton Billing, NN3 9DA. http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ Tel: 01524 781 453 We have held the event here for a number of years before our recent departure to Kelham Hall, and it’s an excellent venue which really suits the club’s event. There is food available on site and there are also a couple of pubs and a Fish & Chips shop in walking distance. There is also the Mini-Golf, Karting and a leisure centre with a pool.
What do you need?
If you are camping then you need the general camping gear of tent, sleeping bag, etc. If you want to clean your car up for the show and shine on the Sunday there is a cold-water supply so, bring your bucket and cleaning gear. Also bring some money but there is a cash machine by the entrance to the site.
How much does it cost and how to book?
If you are camping the rate is £21/night. A pitch is for a tent for up to 4 people, if you have extra cars they may charge you extra. If you are a paid up member there is a discounted rate see this https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/357805-polo-social-2019/ To book head to http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ and click book now. Then please select Shelduck 2 as this is our field. If you are camping for just the Saturday night then its £21 per pitch. You can book this online as per above but you might not be able to select Shelduck 2. Please select another field but just pitch up in the Shelduck 2 field with the rest of us when you arrive as there will be loads of room. The day rate is £10 per car.

Distributor oil leak
Just a quick question. I have oil gathering in the distributor cap and have bought the two seals to replace. Haynes says to set the engine to TDC before withdrawing the distributor body. However, when I had an issue with another distributor the RAC man just pulled it out on the roadside. If I make sure the locator doesn’t move when it comes off the engine is it fine to go ahead without the engine on TDC?

Polo 1.1 & 1.4 abd
So I’ve finally realised that I’m never going to have the time to do “project polo” she was bought with a full mot (expired now) with the intention of doing the easy engine swap to the 1.4 abd, was going to put some cams and bike carb with the aim of a 100bhp fun rat look sleeper.. but like many projects I never got to the hard part.. so for £500 you get a polo 1.1 and the 1.4 engine.. and I get to crack on with my beetle that is also waiting on me.. any questions please ask loads of information on here about the engin swap.. comes with the golf 5 speed box and gearlinkage too

Help with my coilovers over Christmas
Hello Club Poloers,
 
Long shot because I don't use CP too much anymore and I'm not sure how active people are on here, but I need some help over the Christmas period.
 
My Polo is on coilovers but I raised it ages ago, but would like to lower it back down. I don't really have any tools and I think it might be tricky as they're probably seized up. I was wondering if anyone in the Huddersfield area would be up for helping me lower it back down over Christmas? I'll be in Huddersfield from 22nd December to 1st January. Crate of beer in it for whoever can help me. Preferably someone with a decent garage space/ramp to do it in.
 
Cheers!
Patrick

the One and only 6N open air 1.9 tdi 154 hp
Guys, here some pics of the only Polo 6N 1.9 diesel been delivered to The Netherlands and nowadays the only 6N1 open air with an 1.9 tdi  actual setup 154 hp ... to be changed to 200 hp. 
This was the first car of my wife (bought new) and after 190.000 km we thought it should changed to a red dragon with a little bit more power.
So based on the original car with the 1.9 AEX SD we built in the AFN 1.9 tdi engine - Polo Gti interieur - front brakes from the Gti and also the original BBS from the Gti. Our car had 13" and now we are driving 15". 
The film: 205 on the GPS .... the rpm - yeah sorry for that made a failure in the electric .. took signal from the ecu instead of the generator (still need to change)
 
Still to do: Original coilers from ralley Sport to be installed/ axle back from the GTI to be installed/ seat heating to be installed / an original radio (searching)/ the right airbag to be exchanged .... or eliminated (original was only one).
G60 brakes and probably OZ wheels 16" ....

Polo Green smurf
Greetings to all, my name is Oleg, I am from Russia.
 In our country, second-generation polos are not very popular due to the small number of such cars, and so I decided to look for communities outside my own country.

Dora v2
Dora v2 - I figured the bodywork was in reasonable enough condition that I could throw it in for an MoT, but it wouldn't start. Drained the fuel tank and tried some fuel cleaner, changed the rotor arm, dizzy cap, ignition coil, spark plugs, but it still wouldn't spark. So I handed it over to the garage who ended up replacing the whole distributor, and did a little bit of welding on the offside sill - which is the bulk of the remaining rust taken care of. Then they put it in for MoT, and it passed with no advisories. Nice!

Thank you  Polo owners
Hi Everyone
 
I'd like to say a massive thank you for all the help and advice you have given me since I got my Aunts 1989 Polo Mk 2, what a brilliant group you all are.
 
Just to say that she has now been sold and is off to Dorset next Wednesday. Quite an epic trip, I presume by a transporter, or it will take forever. I wanted to keep her but hubby didn't like driving her at all, can't see why!
 
Thanks again, these forums are invaluable.
 
Cheers Jakki   ???? x

Post in The Polo Social - Your first time? What is it? What to Expect? How to Book!
We have confirmed the prices with Kelham Hall and you can now book your stay via our shop!
https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/store/category/8-the-polo-social-2018/ the standard rate is £21/night, this is for 2.adults & 4 children 1 car, 1 tent/caravan/motorhome, the current rate @Kelham is £25/night so you are already getting a discount and fully paid members will receive a further discount on booking up to 10 days before the event, after this the same £21/night will apply, there are some extras that will be collected at the gate £5/night for additional adults, £5/night for additional cars & £2/night for dogs
 
Please do not try and book direct with Kelham as you will be charged the full £25/night and due to our PLI insurance will not be permitted to camp with the main show area, you will be in the general camping site..
 
This year we are accepting bookings from the Thursday night till Sunday night, but on those days there will be nothing planned in the way of entertainment and anyone staying on those nights might be asked to assist in the putting up/dismantling of the club marquee.
 
This year due to so many people "forgetting their passes" we will not be posting the passes out, they will be on the gate collection
