Yes I'm an old man! Been wanting one of these ever since saw the concept and the test mules, so went and asked the question at local dealers (which a friend now helpfully works for ) in the middle of September and put deposit down and confirmed the build order.It was on the build schedule for week beginning 15th October, it arrived in the UK the 9th November and the dealer on 17th November, collected it yesterday Specs: 2017 MY VW Arteon R-Line 280PS 2 litre TFSI Maximum power 280ps at 5100rpm Maximum torque 258lbs.ft at 1700rpm 4 motion & DSG ACC / Lane Assist / Traffic Jam Assist / XDS Differential / DCC / Active Display (all as standard) Only options ticked: Paint & Heated Windscreen Turmeric Yellow Metallic (pictures don't do it justice, way better in person) Makes life in stop/start traffic way better than my old A5 as I've got dodgy knees and the heavy clutch was starting to take its toll Few pictures
Some of you may know I had a 1.0L 6n2 a while back and ended up selling that and buying a mk2 polo, now the time for a more reliable daily has come up, do I or do I not buy a 6n2 GTI, what are they like on fuel and fun? and is there anything else someone would suggest? btw the mk2 will be in the garage to have some bodywork done and new carb etc
Hello! I'm João, from Portugal, and this is my Polo. It's a 1989 Mark II Typ 86C Steilheck model, powered by a 1.0l engine with about 45hp. Bought it 6 years ago, with about 11.200km. It has now about 55.300km and it's my daily. It's totally original (and in need of some small things) and the objetive is not having a "project car" by the definition of it, but have it as is, the most OEM possible while possible, so the maintenance will be the most important thing on this project. This breadvans are not that common here in Portugal, and when I need some sort of part, it's not easy to find it. When I join your club, I was looking for some parts, but then I realize how popular is/was this model in UK, so I decided to be part of the family and since that I'm not sorry. I did not made many friends here, but I feel I'm part of it (also, I believe, because I'm not from UK and because of that I cannot join meets and other events). I've said it when I had the other topic, but I'll say it again. My Polo is not the best on forum, and I know that. Also, to be honest, I'm quite far from "the best out there". There are many excelente projects out there, and many awesome topics. Mainly not that original as mine I believe, but nevertheless worst. To be quite honest, I do think my Polo is not that bad, nor phisically or mecanically, but I know that there's always work to do, and that's also why I love cars. They are never ready, and we bond with them and with other people alike. Right now I'll post some photos of how it looks, but I want to get the older photos (all of them, that I had on the other topic!) in order to post them here. That way I can have a updated topic and with all the big things I've done in these years. General Info: Maker: Volkswagen Model: Polo II Typ 86C Steilheck (Squareback) Year: 1989 Color: Alpinweiß (L90E) Engine: 4 straight cylinder, 1043cc 45cv/hp @ 5600rpm (carb Weber 32TL) Gearbox: 4 speed, manual Weight: 735kg (1625lbs) SpritMonitor: http://www.spritmonitor.de/de/detailansicht/543596.html Manufacturer MPG: 8.0l/100Km P.S.: This is not a new entry here, on forum. Actually, I had a topic of my own about this very Polo. Yet, I had some issues with the images I've posted, and because of that I decided to delete the old topic and create a new one.
