David's Silver 1.0 E 6N2

Recommended Posts

Alright!

For use that are interested, I just bought myself a Polo 6N2. Sold my Lupo today and travelled all the way from Central Scotland to Tyne and Wear today to pick it up!

I have quite a lot of plans for the car :).

Day after purchase the car was cleaned and waxed :). Here is a picture before the mods begin.

So.. A rather large box arrived a few days ago..

In this rather large box was these:

Just fitted my GTI Grill! I personally think this and the GTI front splitter make a major difference to the car.

I'm very pleased with the result and I'm extremely pleased with how it handles and the ride comfort. It is probably more comfy than the original! Joms are amazing for the money!

More plans:

GTI splitter

Colour code handles

Possibly colour code bumper strips?

GTI alloys or bbs rs'

Shark fin aerial

Alpine/focal ICE

Nice!!

Thanks man :).

I would agree with the JOM's dude!

Good work!

I'm so impressed with them, everyone said they were ****!!

BBS > GTi wheels :D

Well the GTI wheels from the Polo are BBS RX2s. Both are nice, i'm not sure what to get :(.

Budget has been pretty tight so haven't got any updates. Went to lower the car a little more at the front tonight. Rings were pretty tight even although they were greased! Had to fetch a hammer to move the rings!

First wheel off and I looked at the tread.. Tracking getting done this Friday and I'm going to see about getting the slight camber removed. My next mod will most likely be colour coded door handles & bumper strips or GTI splitter.

Washed and waxed car and decided to get some pictures of how it sits now. I need a GTI splitter, RX2s and a GTI spoiler in my life :(.

I need to get new lights. The ones on this at the moment suck and are filled with ****!

That's to expensive for me buddy, keep getting raped for insurance. Gonna do it myself, my dads a welder so he can weld the old one for a temp fix then i'll get the new one which is more solid. Cheers for letting me know though ;)! How did you know it was the pedal box btw?

I like the new car david you've made a good start on it keep it up

Cheers mate!

I didn't is the honest answer... it went in for a new clutch but it was actually needing a new pedal box. I had managed to put a crack in the old one... Supposidily pedal boxes are a problem on VW's... :/

Yeah they are common but I just managed to move off slightly in 5th. Pedal box and clutch failure symptoms :S.

How much have your lowerd the car

Just about all the way down mate. Spacers are in, helper springs are in the rear and the bump stops haven't been cut.

Will you be lowering the car any more

Maybe more at the front, not sure yet. Can't go crazy low because my drive way is a piece of **** full of pot holes and slants.
