So when is the 1.5 TSI EVO engine coming to the VW Polo?

Reviews of the 2018 (Mk6) Polo keep mentioning that it will eventually feature the 1.5 TSI EVO. Do we know more about when that could be? See, e.g., this review from last week still merely repeating the general promise in future tense:

Volume of revolution

Hello, I have to write a math assignment on a topic of choice and so I chose to write mine on the volume of an irregular object. However, I think apart from modelling the shape that I picked (a vase) to then rotate and apply the formula, it is quite simplistic in terms of the maths. I would like to make it more interesting as well as using some advanced mathematics. I thought I could also include the Torricelli’s Trumpet but it is overstudied and overdone. Is there anything I can do to improve my topic?! I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance.

Can you recognize the car brand by looking at this steering wheel snippet?

I’m curious, would you be able to recognize the car brand by looking at this steering wheel snippet? Click here to see the picture.

I don’t know much about cars so I really have no idea what brand it could be. And I was thinking maybe one of you car enthusiasts could figure it out.

Thank you.

Is this more likely to be a jammer or interference?

My parents have a car with a fob that unlocks/locks the door. On my half of street the fob does not work at all. It won’t lock or unlock the door. When you go to other parts of the city, or even across the street, the fob works as intended.

My dad said off hand it’s probably a jammer but I wasn’t convinced. He’s not as tech savvy as me, so I began looking into the common hacks and from what I understand, there are common techniques to take a single unlock code, but then pass through the next unlock code. This allows the thief to remain undetected and that is not what is happening. You can press the unlock button as many times as you want, and it never unlocks. It’s also worth knowing there is a plaza behind my house, and parking lots are often targeted, but I’m not convinced there is a jammer. It doesn’t look like a thief gets anything out of this, as the car can still be locked/unlocked.

Full disclosure, I’m not really a car enthusiast, I just want to help my parents. I thought about posting this in /r/AskTechnology but I’m not sure if that is the sort of subreddit to answer this question. Maybe someone here will have any ideas?
