    Will put picture up in daylight ,
    It’s a 2006 tdi S , 1 previous owner
    Bought it to carrier my schnauzers
    about in as it’s a 3 dr hatch , and to run about in instead of the s class , probably save me £40 a wk so will pay for itself in no time . And don’t want to put dogs in Tiguan as have to lift them up as it’s too high for them to jump up ,and don’t want it smelling of dogs. Lol.

    This was the very reason we kept the boys old Clio , saves the "good" cars getting messed up /damaged and needing cleaned every time we take the dog to the park plus it is handy for doing the dump runs . It will be getting scrapped in May when the MOT runs out and will be getting replaced with (possibly) a SWB Shogun as having a workhorse is handy.

    Same reason we bought the E Class estate.
    Cheap as chips, owes us nothing, nowhere near pristine so not precious about it and don't care if the dogs get it full of hair - unlike the SLs or her Cooper S!

    Have experience of a 2016 Polo, same transmission as yours.
    Pleasant car, well built, but it does not get anywhere near the claimed fuel economy.

    Thanks.
    We man and wife owned it but he passed away. Only done 200 mls last year , so new timing belt and water pump done on Wednesday and just collected oil , filters and new wipers this morning for a good service.
    Very happy with it .
