Are these the ones which people commonly refer to as HR springs?

Shouldn't cost beyond 20-25k for a set of 4.
Wow. Not exactly that cheap for me.

This may alter the handling however.
Can you elaborate? Will the handling become worse than stock.

Yep. H&R is a German manufacturer. There are others.

That was just an estimate. It could be cheaper depending on the car, manufacturer, type of spring etc.

The car's CG is lowered, overall handling improves, body roll reduces and nose diving while braking reduces. But better or worse - depends from car to car, spring to spring.

Lets not go off topic.

Yes they are original Vossen's. Their main dealer sends me monthly updates and this car featured in his picture gallery. Love the design and colour but there is something weird about the stance of the car.

No clue if this has been featured before here in this thread. Someone from J&K was way too obsessed with the Merc's EnerG Force design, took it to an all new level by trying to make his Xenon pick up look like one.
IMO a decent job except for the Merc Logos.

I like that everything is bespoke, except that boomerang on the boot.
Tasteless, but bespoke.

The wheels on the polo are AVA. I am not sure from where he sourced it.

This one is a cool job. Saw a post saying its for sale. 5.5 L is a decent price for it , but worried about future spares.

Don't take me wrong but the car looks utterly disgusting and out of place.

A baleno looks much much better stock. This makes it look like a shoddy paint wrap job. The spoiler looks out of place and the hoodscoop too.

Looks are subjective and its not to everyone's taste. The bonnet is oe Carbon fiber and those are the OE subaru bonnet scoops which serves a purpose.

That hood scoop is as functional as the vortex generators on the roof.

I am not saying they are non functional. I meant the looks weren't worthy of the price tag and the car doesn't look half as good as it would look good stock.
Of course it's subjective ,that's the reason opinions exist.

Maybe sir.. as you know better. I just shared a picture. Since its not my car I do not know the exact purpose of the hood placement. It was modified hence shared. If it's wacky and wired to the eyes of many it may be

Does the rear spoiler serve any purpose in a front wheel drive car such as this??

Yes! Very useful to hang wet towels to dry after washing the car.
