@ Mi10: Nice work. The mods are subtle and unique at the same time.

Can I ask why you've painted/vinyl-ed the lower part of the front bumper black?

That looks alright, except for the standard everybody-and-their-uncle-has-them wheels.

Yes. Some nice black alloys would complete the look. And need to get some black on the body as well. Looks too yellow to be taken seriously

Is it a wrap?

A more glossy yellow would look more like Bumblebee. It does look good nevertheless. Would give way if i saw it in my rear view mirror.

The pic seems to be taken to make it look real low.

Yes true, + the 17"ers would be an overkill too.

But quite a looker & impressive effort

We got this Polo 1.6 for my brother in February this year. It came with a kit that was fitted by the dealer in the showroom. I'm not sure if it is the SR kit but it sure does look nice with the second spoiler!

And we got the car at an awesome price: an even 6 lacs on road, including the kit!

Hi bowser,

Thanks for the pics.

Do you drive this polo often/sometimes ? How is your and your brother's feedback in regards to the ground level clearance from the front and sides ? Does it comfortably go over speed brakers, potholes and uneven roads on the front and sides ?

You can make out I'm quite keen on this kit and plan to fit same when I purchase the GT Tsi.

See an American minivan in your garage? Plymouth, dodge etc? Diesel? Was it return baggage when someone retuned from the states or was it a local buy?

I zoomed the image, It says, Nissan QUEST.

Nevertheless, the Polo looks nice with the kit on.

My brother says the ground clearance is pretty good. When the car was in the showroom I measured the ground clearance for this one and another Polo without the kit. This one was about 10mm lower. The few times I've driven it there were no issues with speedbreakers with 3 people in the car. You should definitely get it, it makes the car look even more solid and tank-like

Yes, it is indeed a 1995 Nissan Quest. Petrol engine, 3000cc. We brought it with us when we shifted back from the US in 2000.

With the exception of that massive FIAT decal, that is an extremely tastefully modded Punto. Those rims are just wonderful as well. What rims are those, btw?

I know that it's detrimental to ride quality and ground clearance, but I'm sure I'm not the only one would like that Punto to be dropped a bit. About an inch I'd say. Oh, and I'd get rid of that wing too. And then, it would be perfect!
