      Last year I bought a Polo 6n2 TDI, because I missed having a VW. It's the three cylinder 75hp turbodiesel, and it's actually one of the funniest cars I've owned.

      This is how it was when I bought it in November last year:


      Then I drove it standard during the winter. This spring I had to maintain it some, so it got new rear brakes, oil and filter change and coilovers. I also did some other minor mods.

      This is how it is now:







      Future plans are a new set of wheels and some other small mods.

      So, what do you think?

      Yeah, they're 7x15. 195/50, so they rubbed.

      Now the winter tires are on, so I'll try something else next summer

      Or go 175/50R15 if you're worried about the comfort. Should be better than 195/45...atleast on your low Polo

      Fixing some things on the car now, to get it approved for two more years. Only have change some bulbs and fasten the battery.

      Anyone know how big is the bolt that holds the battery down? Bulbs in the front lights are H4 and H7 right?
