Hello Everyone! I once had the VW 2001 Polo 1.4 16V petrol auto. It was underpowered. Recently I bought myself a 2008 low mileage 1.4 tdi BlueMotion tech 1. I absolutely love this car. It’s both stock cute & nippy to drive. Plans:- 1. Retrofit cruise control 2. Eibach proline springs to replace stock (1 corner is damaged) 3. Remote key fob as there’s none for locking, bought a kit from eBay I hope it works 4. Parking distance control front & rear, it sits behind the bumper safely tucked. 5. Bilt Hamber DC & UC for the the chassis to stop corrosion. Independant tests show it comes out amongst the top. 6. New OEM rear lights going in to freshen the look 7. Respray front & side rear, fix tiny dent 8. Figuring out if it has a MFA on the centre console (see my other topic) 9. Need to put in seat covers as I find it stains easy. I will stain proof with scotchguard or gyeon.l 10. Rubber mats in boot & inside 11. Tinted rear windows The frugality is amazing! It does 50-55mpg in the city, 66+ mpg on motorways at 70-85mph. So I could even improve it.
Hello, I have recently purchased some Pioneer TS-G1731i Speakers (Ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Polo-2010-Pioneer-6-5-17cm-Dual-Cone-Coaxial-Speakers-460W-Door-Speakers-/331810660315?hash=item4d4174dfdb) to install in the front of my MK9 Polo. The speakers arrived today with the mounting bracket, 8 screws, 8 screw brackets and of course the 2 speakers with grills. However, I am unsure how to mount them (as I am no audio expert). Could anybody please advise me how I mount the speakers using 4 screws each. Photos of the bracket and speaker below; Thank you
Hello, I'm back once again. This forum is brilliant. I had no idea that a site like this existed that has so many people who are not only willing to help but also friendly and teeming with specialist knowledge. I'm extremely grateful for the people who helped me sort my handling issue. This time it's about my speakers, although working, they have broke up the material cone and so the sound is very distorted. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement set that sit in the corners of the dashboard like the existing set? I've found a set on ebay but they are 45 pounds! That's an awful lot. I was hoping to pay much less. This car is my budget run around and I want to try and keep it that way. Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer.
Hi everyone, Getting a bit bored of being extremely slow in my 1.0L 6N2 (Which yes is obvious it's going to be slow) but until I get my other car on the road, is there anything relatively easy or cheap to do to get a tiny bit extra hp? Obviously there's exhaust's, turbo etc. but just more simple stuff? Had an idea of a little re-map, but doubt anyone could/would do a 1.0L... Thought maybe air filters, although not sure how that would work as there inside the engine cover? Or maybe an EGR delete/blank? But not sure if that would really be worthwhile. Any ideas? Thanks!
