New member from The Netherlands, my first VW!

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi, I'm Tim, currently living in the Netherlands, where they say the grass is greener ;). Having grown up in a Volvo family I'm now making my foray into VWs! Here is my ''new'' Polo 1.4 8V (09/2000): Sadly an automatic, but for the mileage (170k kms), MX history, condition inside+out and the price - undeniably a steal.


I'm looking at lowering it on a good+cheap (i know) spring+shock combo or coils, OEM wheels maybe from the GTI? Or mk4 Golf hubcaps... but keeping it simple and clean for now.


Looking forward to being a member of this community!

      Hi, have any of lovely people out there got any body panels in Evergreen (Paint code LA6C) that are available for sale. I'm especially looking for a driver's side rear door in good condition and preferably with the colour coded bump strip, though not essential. I'm based in the Midlands but would be prepared to travel to collect. Thanks for looking 😁👍

      Hi lads, I'm on the lookout for an afk engine to replace my akk engine. If I can find one, would this be a straight forward swap? I would intend to remove current engine and box and replace with afk engine and box. I'm also assuming that the ecu and clocks need to be swapped.
      Thanks for any help!

      2001 Polo 1.4 TDI – AMF engine – £900 ovno
      123,000 miles (approx. and changing as I use it)
      Just passed its MOT on the 30/06/17
      Located in Monmouth, SE Wales
      Up for sale, my daily driver that I’ve used to commute to work for the last 2 and a half years. I’ve covered over 50,000 miles in that time, all dual carriageway driving. Has had various repairs as it’s needed them, but has never broken down on me or failed to start. All repairs have been done using quality parts, Febi, Sachs, etc. no cheap bits as I have needed it to be reliable for work.
      Genuinely sad to see the car go but we’ve outgrown it as a family now that our second child has come along, so need to replace it with something bigger. It’s really nice to drive, there are no clonks, rattles or weird noises; it has a really strong engine and uses no oil or water. At or near the asking price there are various bits I’m happy to pass on with the car: a pair of genuine VW roof bars, Haynes manual, spare alloy wheel (needs a refurb) and some new spare parts (front pads, bushes, etc.). Message me on here if you’re interested.
      Good bits:
      · £30 tax per year, insurance group 13, so cheap to run and insure.
      · Excellent engine, pulls really well and fantastic on fuel, it averages 65 MPG consistently with more on a run. Surprisingly nippy for what it is.
      · SE spec, so has: remote central locking with alarm (one key), front fogs, electric tilt and slide sunroof, rear discs, front electric windows, electric mirrors.
      · GTI bits: Xenon lights, upper grille, front splitter and full leather interior with heated seats, stubby aerial.
      · All the electrics work, no warning lights on the dash.
      · I’ve serviced it with oil and filter religiously every 10,000 miles. Last done at 121,800 miles along with fuel filter. Air filter and pollen filter done 15,000 miles ago.
      · Recent rear pads, rear shocks, front and centre exhaust sections.
      · Just had around £400 of work done to get it through the MOT, both lower wishbones, ball joints, inner and outer anti-roll bar bushes, pair of front tyres, ABS sensor.
      · Timing belt done on the 17/07/17 by my local garage along with water pump, tensioner, etc.
      Bad bits:
      · Category D write off (lowest level) due to damaged drivers side doors – these were repaired and the car returned to the road before I bought it. The repair to the driver’s door isn’t the best and it is visible.
      · Bodywork generally – the photos make it look better than it is. There’s no rust anywhere, but there are various dents and scratches, the worst dent should be visible in the photos on the bonnet. Alloys are in mixed condition with some kerbing. I'm probably making this sound worse than it is, but I'm just trying to be honest; the bodywork isn't terrible, it's just what you'd expect from a 16 year old car.
      · Rear tyres have about 2-3mm of tread on them – advisory on the MOT.
