Post by BongaR »

Good day gentlemens

Egr value is very costly so any advice that can be reasonable I'm in Cape Town. Thanks in advance, Bonga

Best thing you can do for the car is to delete both EGR and DPF and have it coded out.
I did it on my Bluemotion 3 days after I got it. Also had the car carbon flushed. Do it, you wont regret the money spent.

Unfortunately I dont know of any places in Cape Town as I am in Gauteng.

Ask for recommendations in Cape Town via Facebook on the "VW Polo owners RSA" page.
You will get much quicker answers there.
