Re: Unofficial Gumtree finds thread.

RS6 Beast up for grabs :drool: https://www.gumtree.co.za/a-cars-bakkies/bantry-bay/2003-audi-rs6-sedan/1002017524600910061375509 I would prefer the Avant version but a lot of car, and maybe trouble, for the money. Agreed on all points. It does in fact have the potential to destroy one financially.

Re: 2015+ Tiguan 1.4tsi

The MkII is the latest Tiguan based on the MQB platform and the 1.4 engines used are the newer turbo only 1.4's. Aaah ok, thanks Neuk :cool: Just get the Rav, or better yet, an ASX The more I look at it online, the more sense the Rav makes. No way they would go for an asx, even the toyota would be ...

So the previously mentioned issues no longer apply or just less frequently? I'm a bit confused, is the mk2 the Ea211 platform?

Re: 2011 VW Polo Cross TDI

Hi All So after almost a year, I did not care much about the noise on the car, but on my way to work today I drove past a repair shop and asked one of the mechanics to just have a quick listen to the sound and let me know what he thinks. He then told me the sound is coming from my aircon and its ca...

Re: 2015+ Tiguan 1.4tsi

Yeah did some reading, many complaints about the fuel economy and oil usage, low mileage engine replacements etc. The 2.0tdi seems to be the one to go for but I think its a bit out of budget. The Rav 4 2.0 petrol seems like a better option for them. Not really a fan of the ott styling but seems like...

2015+ Tiguan 1.4tsi

Hi guys,

I am trying to assist my parents with finding a suitable SUV. They like the new Tiguan 92kw manual.

Are they as problematic as previous models?

I've read they can be shockingly heavy on fuel, is this true? Most of their driving is urban.

Any other common issues with these models?

Thanks

Re: Fiesta ST 200

IMO,

ST180 was better that the 6R GTi. Mainly because of the 6R engine/gearbox issues.

The manual 6C GTi would be better than the ST200 because 4 doors, superior build quality, interior waaaaay better.

Would 100% go for the 6C over the ST200. Cant afford either right now though :lol: :(

Re: Fiesta ST 200

The biggest change is the motor. Its a 1.5T 3pot with lots of boost. The 1.6T's was recalled by the fire department. Whats strange is in SA we got a face lift but overseas the new Fiesta ST looks a lot more different. Incorrect. The 2018 ST will be a 1.5 3 pot. The ST200 still uses the same 1.6T. T...

Re: Polo 6R Thread

Anyone else notice a weird flat spot when pulling away from time to time? Happens randomly where the car feels completely dead for like a second then it's back to normal :???:

It feels almost as if there is a delay in the dbw, but it doesn't happen all the time. Diagnostics picks up no faults.

Att: 6R/C Owners - Cobra coilovers

*** Another coilover post :puke: ***

Any 6R owners using Cobra coilovers? Would like some reviews on them.

They are priced smack bang in the middle of FK's and BC's and come with a decent 2 year warranty.

I just dont want the Jom driving experience again, those were absolute crap.

So my aux on my polo isnt working. Checked settings and tried a different aux cable, no luck. I did however get the car with a Parrot 3200LS bluetooth kit. Could this be causing the problem.
