The Polo is a very mod friendly vehicle. However, I'm disappointed that there is not a single Hyundai i10 featured on this thread. I look at my car from various angles everyday. I can't think of anyway to make the previous gen i10 look any better.

Hey Gopa! You'll get that HAM antenna at any mod shop in Bangalore. I got mine at Car Fancy, Koramangala

Here's a reference pic.

A friend's old i10.
Car was done 5 years back.

It was pretty simple on the outside,an asta O with the nice 14" wheels,subtle bodykit,smoked headlights,smoked tailights,mesh work on the front bumper.The interiors were shod in stanley leather and the car had a crazy music system.

Twenty Eight lakhs for a DC done Polo!?! And that too minus the car's OTR price?
Either the owner of that vehicle hasn't heard of a certain Mini Cooper or it's a new money laundering trick!

Here is a video of a bhpian jerish666's Fiesta 1.6S.

I believe the mods on this car has been well documented on the dedicated thread - (Ford Fiesta 1.6S Petefied)Link.

Apologies for the belated reply. Road noise is bound to be there as those huge tyres are the culprit. The ride wasn't very harsh when I drove it as it was still on OE suspension at the time. But the miniscule sidewalls of the tyre and the size of the rims did cause some discomfort on bad roads.

I'm sorry but I don't have any pictures of the car right now. Will take a few whenever I do get to see the car. The car was initially running on run-flats and they were very hard, ditched pretty quickly for normal (if you can call it that) tyres.

If I were you, I'd think really hard before going in for a setup like this on your own car. Like you've said, until we get flat and smooth roads, we'll just have to live with softer suspensions and high ground clearances. But each to his own.

I love these setups but cannot live with it in india, like most things here in India - Head over heart is what one has to lump. As you stated aptly each his own
