    We want Škoda !

    This is a thread for anyone that thinks VWSA should bring Škoda into South Africa. If nobody responds then VWSA will most likely bring in Škoda since the last thing they want to do is actually to listen to the motor buying public. Lets hear it for Škoda !!!

    Jetta mk3 face lift parts

    I've got a 95 jetta mk3, and as such, the upper sections of its bumpers and its rear headlights are lighter and not of the "smoked" variety like the newer (96 -99) mk3s sport. I want to replace these parts with the new colour-coded bits. I've checked out autostyle, and for the smoked rear...

    Why gold is the best colour for a Polo.

    Yes folks, its time again for a lesson in Polo Stylin'. In the past we have covered topics such as chrome door handles and duct tape mirrors but today we focus on something much more important - Polo paint colour selection! Since your Polo will spend a lot of time alone, next to the road...

    VW Polo Service Spanner

    Ok so we serviced our Polo a couple weeks ago and the guy who did it sent us to the VW dealership to get rid of the spanner that shows up telling you to get it serviced. We thought they used a whole computer thingy to turn it off but the guy just fiddled around with the key and the odometer...

    Is duct tape cooler than chrome door handles?

    So it seems that chrome door handles are a No-no on your black Po-lo. But what about duct tape on your door mirrors? Especially when it has been there for a long time and gravity is working its magic on this unique but unfortunate autostyle :D

    Is chrome door handles cool?

    I know it is definately cold driving with the window down and sunroof open when it is 11 degrees outside (those are requirements for a smoke in the morning traffic) - but since when is it cool to have chrome door handles ?! Or are they standard on the car ?
