Congratulations on Your Polo the Mint with a holo

It really looks superb, both exterior as well as interiors the Stanley seat covers definitely add charm to the interiors.

One question how come your pictures are not water marked with Team-BHP's name

Superb pics man. The seat covers look great.

Just one thing - no offense but you could have purchased a better looking HU. The green backlit display doesn't really gel with the rest of the car.

Any external mods in the pipeline?

great buy and very very congratulations, seat covers look great- they must feel good too.

the only thing that kept me from buying the POLO was the backseat legroom,
which was plentiful in the Fabia.

Slightly OT, is the wrinkled seat cover design prone to more wear and tear?

Amazing! The pictures itself show that this thing spells Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y! A little short on gadgets but this car is worth all the bucks. Love those Stanley leather seats!

Congrats on your Polo.
Can we have some pics of the boot space & engine bay.
Would love to see some pics with all doors open.
Even I was contemplating on new hatchback & Polo seems a wise choice. Pls post some driving experience/s.

Raab Rakha.

Congrats buddy, Polo looks very nice in red. Seat cover is decently done, as someone suggested get that steering wheel wrapped with the same leather and color combo. it will improve the looks of that dull steering wheel.

Congrats man, IMO polo is the best looking hatch in the country. Not to mention if taken care of properly this lil baby should last you for years. It is one car which looks more expensive than it actually is, specially the TL version seems real value for money.

Congrats mate, It looks stunning in red. One question, does polo comes with a black shade?. Only concern of mine is, everyone is reserved in their opinion regarding the 3 pot engines, is it really a bottle neck?.

I'll take the liberty of answering that. (hope hpzone doesn't mind that)

Yes, it does but the pearl black is only available on the Comfortline and Highline variants. The base model Trendline is available only in White or Red.

The 3 pot engine is quite good if you go in with an open mind without any prejudged bias. Of course, if you're coming from a high hp engine like a Civic etc., the Polo will seem quite puny. However, it can easily hold its own against the competition in its segment. There's a lot of discussion about this over the past couple of days in the main Polo thread so be sure to read through that as well.
