Wow! Wish we could have 18 and 19" on our hatchbacks here, in India. But, for sure, we need better roads. They look great!

Sorry for bumping up a very old post Suhaas. Iím on the look out to replace the wheels and tires for my Polo TDi and these wheels simply look stunner. Do you mind sharing the cost of those BBS rims? Would love to go for these even if it means stretching my budget a little.

Hi,

The retail price of the wheels is 1 lakh thereabouts. However there are offers and discounts around these days. You can contact the BBS distributor, he operates out of Chennai and you may even get a better deal than I did.

Cheers

Unlikely

The retail price for 16" is not 1 lakh.... it's around 85k or so. But the price also depends on the stock. For example, if the distributor has stock, he offers a good price. If he has to import it specially, then the cost goes up. If you're prepared to wait for a few months, then he can get it by sea and the price is still reasonable. But if he has to import it by air freight, it gets tremendously expensive.

Not a wheel change,but got the alloys painted
Looks on a bugdet 😃
Next step: debagding
Looks good. Changes the demeanour of the car quite nicely. Just wondering how much does it cost? Also is it a gun metal type color or black glossy one?

Lowering the car has really improved the aesthetics. Looks superb even with the stock alloy wheels. If you dont mind telling what was the cost involved for this setup?

Bilstein B6 (front & rear) + Rear Polo Springs (bilstein) from TDC Automotives UK - 54k (discounted price including customs charges), fitment charges additional.

You could source it locally from Pete's if you are particular about warranty (1 year). Last when I enquired, they were charging 79k for B6 & 5k for polo springs, shipping charges additional.

Hope this helps.

Good choice! Would you mind sharing the price paid for these alloys and how much you got for stock alloys?
