That's really nice looking! 👏 suits the car colour perfectly.

On a side note, even your wheels had got some chipping off of the material before the painting. Does this happen normally? I've got my new ones just a week back and I can already some marks like these on them. I can see that the painting has masked them to quite an extent. 👍

Yes, they rubed the wheels with a regmark before painting,as the wheels were diamond finish wheels.

Really felt the car needed a change from the standard alloys which come with the car. After a few weeks of scouting, decided upon these. Completely changed the profile of the car. Loving it.
The whip : VW Polo 1.5 TDI (2016)
Alloys : AVA
Tyres : S drive 205/50/16
Price : 😉
Satisfaction : 💯%
(Yup those are aftermarket headlights)

Tyres have been replaced from 225/55r17 Michelin Primacy 3st i was previously using to 225/60r17 Pirelli Scorpion Verde for an attempt to make the ride more comfortable.

The rear disc brakes will be a very useful mod for this car as the braking leaves a lot to be desired.

Yes. Id be heading to sportwagen on monday to get the car inspected and get all the necessary parts ordered for rear disc brake conversion. He'd call me once the parts are in and then its a 2 day job to do the retrofit. Let's see how it turns up.

The Creta looks lowered as all the black plastic claddings are now body coloured. That makes the body look closer to the wheels than before giving the impression the car is lowered.

I am not a fan of making those claddings body coloured. The AVA wheels look great though.

Sorry if back to back posts are not allowed in this thread, just want to park these beauties separate.

This time, it's the mighty 1.6 GT TDI with Sparco Assettogara and custom painting. Was previously running with Hankook's and now running with Yoko A drive 205/50/16.
