Mr. Bhagwan contact these guys and you will get the rear disc breaks, suspension upgrade and possibly remap (& better filter than a K&N).
well they basically did those mods on a vento but i really hoping they are the same upgrade parts for a polo too.

Bhakes - Rear Disc & Pad Upgrade

Suspension - Coilover

Let me see what reply I get.

Thanks for your suggestion.

I would suggest you not mess with the ECU on a German Petrol. There is not much to be gained there.

Read up on the issues with one particular car called Skoda Fabia 1.4 and you will understand.

Get an intake and header installed along with an FPR if needed.

Mr.Bhagwan you could call the technical helpline of the pete's and leave your mail id and they will mail you the details and the quoations. if i am not wrong the rear disc brakes, pad and suspension of vento would fit polo too but as far as the ecu is concerned you could check with their "custom code" remap its a foreign brand who do remaps for many cars may be it would help. do let us know how it goes.

The ECU hardware is never ever an issue. The software that goes in there is German and so is the ignition system on the car (a known weak point on Skodas)

I have attached some pics of the MM ECM from the VW Polo.
I had taken it to Kirus for the re-map & they could not do it...
The Italians [people that Kirus work with] did not have a pro-gramme for it.

So my wait goes on.

Hope I find some one that can chip it & do a good job of it !

That's a very handsome car you have, sir! May I suggest blacking out your roof, and getting black/red accents like in the pic below? Also, those headlights look great, if you manage to get them, that would look amazing. I have a Vento coming, and I'm looking for the same headlights as these. Does anyone know of good websites to purchase 16" wheels from?

Cheers!

I purchased my 17" Alloys & Tyres from 4S Auto @ Tardeo - Mumbai.
They are 'stupidly' priced, but I did not have any option....

The international site is tire rack.
They can offer you some choices.
However, your VW will loose its Warranty - please do bear in mind...

Why 16 ?
Why not 17 ?

Please do share some light.

All the Best !
