Of course its possible, what made you say it wasn't?

Apparently the Polo comes with 2 types of steering controller, one which supports paddle shifters and one which doesn't. If you are unlucky and get one which doesn't support paddles its another 20k for that.

Ah. Didn't know about the two different steering controllers part. My acquaintance abroad couldn't get to code the paddle shifters to his 1.2 TSI.

Too bad my 1.6 doesn't allow either!

That should be Robimahanta's GT TSI. He had mentioned about the trip here (VW Polo GT 1.2L TSi: The baby TSi)

I fail to understand why someone would do this to their car, that too a Z4. Makes a good looking car look bad.

The designer deserves a bronze statue on some famous tourist trail!
True to the core.I fell in love with lancer after seeing jackie chan's movie thunder bolt

The Punto looks really hot. By the way what are those black fitting on the hood? Also does it has an antenna? If the photo shoot was after a water wash the Italian beauty might have become more beautiful. I think there is some mud on front door panels.

The things on the hood are bonnet pins which are principally used in race cars, here the purpose is strictly aesthetic, so is the exposed tow hook.

Yes, "it does has an" () antenna, a Ham antenna to be precise, again primarily used to communicate with cars in a formation/convoy drive, but totally useless here, not connected to anything whatsoever

The owner himself is an avid photographer and many pictures of the car over time has been uploaded here. Please look up previous pages.

That's quite a looker. I think this thread should be re-named to Tastefully Modified Cars in Kerala .
Is the car just about cosmetic upgrade or does it have mechanical upgrades as well?
