Had my car coated at Regal Valet; quite happy with the results, and I would heartily recommend  :Cheers:

Small upgraded last Oct, lowered with VWR springs and Volksracing gramlight 57xtreme
Ride quality is not good, maybe it's paired with 19" 35 series tires. Plan to swap back original springs.

Sorry to barge in like that but can I know if those rims are 17" or 18"?

Yup - those are 18" Detroits.

Pre-facelift mk6 GTI had 17" Denvers.
Facelifted mk6 GTI had 18" Detroits, along with DRL, sunroof, RCD510. But also removed the TPMS.

No wonder, they up-sized the rims cause I've always thought it was 17" but a bit confused when occasionally seeing one with 18" instead.

I was just wondering, won't it be better to stick to 17" for better acceleration & ride quality?
17" wrapped with 225/45/17 would be smaller, thus, lighter & sits lower, no?

Theoretically, out on track, you could shave off several tenths off your lap time if you went with 17" over 18". In fact, if you went with wider, gripper 235/40/17, you may slice off even more.

Out on public roads, you rarely see or feel the difference. It is merely aesthetics; until it comes time to pay for rubbers. And then your pockets feel the twang.

Have you fitted 235/40/17 before? My tyre guy says it will scrape the fenders or perhaps it can mitigated with coilovers.

18" should be almost RM 200 more than the 17", each.

I am currently running 235/40/18 with no issues, so I do not think 235/40/17 will pose any problems.

Hi All,

Use to own a VW Polo GTI.

Drives quick. Easy to go fast.

Had loads of fun with it.

If only the DSG, the engine, the sensors, the radiator, the sparkplugs , the megatronic..did not give any issue.

With the prices they are today, its really bang for your buck car to have.

2018 Tiguan2 even better in terms of the incredible fuel consumption & performance of the 1.4TSI engine

My staff bought a 2010 unit after listening to my persuasive speech for the car. It's almost a year now and it's still all good. Do take care of the fluids maintenance and I think it should be okay. Interior bits seems to not very durable as fabrics roof starts to sag and etc.
