The WRC bumper gives the Polo a much needed aggressive look.

I'm keen to see how you integrate fog lamps into the mix, these are a necessity for our parts!

Seriously recommend to change the lights to projectors/xenon & might I suggest upgrade to the number plate. These changes will make your ride wicked!

The OEM fogs are totally worthless, so not going to be missed. There is enough space behind the grills to integrate the Cross Polo oem fogs.

My main reason for getting this setup along with the aggressive looks was the ability to fit an auxilary radiator for the intake charge cooler. Right now the engine temp will be the intake air temp, as the same coolant is flowing from the radiator into the intake charge, from intake charge to the engine n bak into the radiator.

The idea is to add a smaller secondary radiator dedicated for the charge air cooler next to the radiator. Ideally should help lower intake temps by about 10-15 degrees, maybe more.

I think putting the cross polo fogs would take away the aggressiveness of the bumper. I would think a fog lamps that fit one of the slats in the grills would be better looking, and hopefully not tacky.

Did some more fooling around with VCDS on the polo. Three things activated now.
1. Horn on lock-un-lock
2. Hazard Flash on emergency/hard braking
3. Push To Talk steering wheel button- Use it for voice commands (dial/sms/calender/music/navi etc) on your smartphone via bluetooth (works with Nokia Lumia, Android. iPhone not tested)

Now its totally a hands free phone operation for me :-)

Loving the car. This weekend is speed sprint, so will get a set of new brake pads and go and have a blast. Need to put the car in race mode (lower, stiffer, aggressive toe) and lets see how she does.
