Thanks for the compliment;

The Seats Cost =

a] Time - 20 ++ days [car cannot be used - no seats]

b] Leather = Rs. 12/- K approx [front seats only]

c] = Labour = Rs. 13/- K [2 seats + door handles]

With regards the R & T [Sparco & Conti]
The Freight was about US $'s 800/- [slightly lower, I think]
They come by volume & not by weight.

WOW, those alloys are sweet ! I like the anthracite effect too !
And I see you have got the Calipers painted to Red right ? Awesome !

And about the Brakes / Suspension Upgrades i think you should contact Pete's. ( Pete's Automotive Products Pvt Limited ) They have done the brakes for a Vento (Tarox Front and Rear Rotor + Pads ) and Bilsten B14 Suspension.

bhagwan, nice to see you are customizing your polo.
Do tell us the difference in performance after installing the K & N Air Filter!

Since you have done the alloys, custom seats and ICE, I was wondering why don't you try sourcing the Euro spec headlamps. I would love to have those euro spec headlamps on my car but i am unable to find it anywhere!

The K & N makes a huge diff.
I had installed it - the day I did my Free Flow.
However, this is being re - installed - trying to be a bit more scientific about it.

This what has been done - should be better.

The problem I have is the EMC - ReMap. No one can do it. The ECU is from MM [Magnet Marelli] & is made in India. So none of the firangs know how to re-map it.

Head lights, I have never looked into.
Do you have a link for it ?

Shall be appreciated.

I like the modifications you're doing Would love to take your Polo for a spin someday and compare it with my 1.2 Polo

Here are the pictures with the euro-style headlamps. (Body kit by Rieger)

P.S: Why don't you start your own separate ownership thread?

Nice Lights;
If you ever find it, do let me know.
I may get them - if they are legit in price.

Sure, after 2 weeks look me up & we can meet, you can take her for a spin - should be OK.

This thread is good.
I am OK with it.
Not sure of the mods will allow a fresh thread.
I had started 1 & the mods closed it down - so I am a bit reluctant to start another one....

There is a sub forum "Modifications & Accessories" where all modifications can be posted. Since a lot of info on your custom air intake has already gone in into this thread, I think it would be ok to continue.
