Thanks all of you for the latest helpful comments.
All things considered, it doesn't look as though I will take too much of a battering at the pumps if I decide to make the change.  :smiley:

Golf mk7 / Re: Buying on PCP

Exonian:

For the new one, I gave my deposit over yesterday and the dealership tried to place the order with VW UK. Apparently order books will be open again at the end of this month (WLTP cerification completion then, i'm assuming).

VW aren't giving any deposit contributions for the GTI/GTI+ but are for other Polos, so current broker offerings are topping out at 12.5% off list. VW seem confident for residuals as GFV is 50% at 3 years.

Wait times for some are ridiculous, There are people on the Polo forum that ordered a GTI/+ in Feb and still don't have a build date, but are expected to built end of Nov when WLTP compliance is ironed out. Then it takes 4-5 weeks shipping from South Africa (time enough for the  paint to cure!), time between UK port and dealership - they'll have waited a year. I got mine (1st and current) in Aug from unallocated stock the dealership had ordeeed (or perhaps a cancelled order?) after putting down a deposit on it in May - 2 weeks before it was built.

For this new one I just requested, being quoted fir about 25-30 weeks. Maybe I can jump on a cancelled order if someone pulls the plug on theirs and get it quicker, but I don't want it before March 1st on 19 plate.

What you doing with your dash cam cabling Matt? Removing everything or leaving cables in and just replacing the cables?

I'll take it out when the time comes. Had the same dashcam type in the A1 and took it out to fit in the new Polo - fitted 2 weeks ago. I'm guessing about £40 for a new cable if you snip the ends and leave it in.

After getting fed up with seeing my rear badge skin peeling I ordered a can of Carbon Steel Grey Metallic (LA9W if you're interested) online and painted the badge inlay.  Very pleased with the end result!



Now to do the front too...
Nice work :smiley:

Golf mk7 / Re: Wheel Caps CM 19 inch Prets
« Last post by jaceyboy on 18 October 2018, 11:22 »
I just wanted VW logo caps to go in my Skoda winter wheels. As the centre bore is smaller on the Skoda wheels, the VW caps that came with the car wouldn't fit (65mm vs 56mm).

Couldn't bring myself to pay about £40 for genuine 56mm VW caps, so decided to live with the Skoda logo caps.

I’d begrudgingly spend the £40 just so the mismatched badges didn’t mess with my OCD.


@ jaceyboy, have a look over on VWROC.com/forums as there are quite a few people that have bought those wheels and successfully sourced correctly fitting centre caps.

I dont mind spending the £40 but want the right ones...

What does it say in your owners manual?

In the owners manual for my 1.8 EA888 engined Polo GTI, it says that fuels with a maximum ethanol content of 10% (E10) can be used for refuelling.
