I'm not entirely sure, but I think Mpower suggested that you install a set of front, side and rear skirts since the car seems to be sitting high. That should negate the effect and give your Polo a more complete look.

If I'm not wrong, the skirts are available at a VW dealership near you. But try and source them from somewhere else, as we all know how VW likes to loot their customers by charging exorbitantly for accessories.

I've said this before and I will say it again, your Polo is arguably, the hottest one in India. A few more add-ons and she'll definitely be 'tuner-show' material!

hey bhagwan!! (pun-intended, if you know what i mean)
Classy rims, lovely seats-treatment, you got some taste brother. I too agree with others here in context with a full skirting treatment to your Polo (front, rear and sides) as well as a subtle spoiler to complete the tuner look. You could even smoke your tail-lamps. check out the ps job.
Will spot the car for sure soon on the streets and have a closer look. Keep up the modding.
A lil off topic but how many kms did you actually drive the car stock before going in with a stage 1 upgrade anyways???

Skirts will give it the 'ground hugging' look. Other option is to go for lowering springs but that will further affect GC and ride.

I believe VW dealer offers imported skirts but at 65K its pricey.

congratulations bhagwan for the beautification of your POLO. Fantastic photos and must appreciate your knowledge and confidence in upgrading your car to this extent.

As somebody already mentioned - how is the ride after the upgrade to 17".

Any info on how one can source these headlights from her european cousins ?

those black housing headlamps look good, damn after watching that video i want a polo 1.2 tdi and get a tune with boltons. in that video loked like it was a stock polo with just a tune (engine wise). just imagine how good it would be with a proper intake downpipe and turbo back exhaust.

Thats the 1.6 tdi in the Polo cup cars. It apparently puts out over 130bhp.

EDIT - Oops im a bit late, Binz beat me to it.

If you guys want the blacked out lamps why not just get your existing headlamps opened and black out those parts? You can even add projectors. It will look hot. What say Bhagwan?

There are many threads on this forum with custom-DIY headlight-projector mods on a few cars, a Punto being one of them, I think. You could have a look and probably try it yourself. Ater all, this is your project car, right?

The VW is currently driven 450 ++ kms;
She was in 4S for 1 + month.
I just got her - last week.
Will drive her to work - tom.
I can do the mods right now.
The problem is I do not get what I want.
Rear Disc Brakes
ECM - remap
Suspension - Lower & Stiffer

I know someone who can do mapping for the 1.6 petrol. let me know if you want his number.

Btw i think the polo only comes with a 1.2 tdi (production cars). i dont think you can get the 1.6 from factory. or can you?

Heh...No! The Polo is available at all showrooms across India with 3 engine options: 1.2 petrol, 1.2 TDI and 1.6 petrol. No 1.6 TDI sadly :(
