Polo 9N3 GTI Red Project

Post by LawShe » Thu Oct 04, 2012 12:53 pm

Not posted much since I've been on here, more watched from a distance :shock:

But making some progress on the car so thought I'd share it and maybe get some more ideas.

Car started off like this

Image

51,000 miles, stage 1 remap, recirc valve and pipercross panel filter, leather heated seats etc.

Image

Bluemotion rear valance bought from KC in white, had it sprayed in red (FOC - not what you know it's who you know!)

Before:

Excuse the gay Instagram picture

After:

My private plate is also fitted now.

Next was coilovers, managed to pick up a second hand set of APs that had only been used for a month including new top mounts and shorted ARB droplinks for £350 which I thought was a good price.
Fitted these at the weekend, got some tweeking to do and need to get tracking etc done but this is how it stands at the minute:

Rears with the adjusters taken out

Also fitted number plate surrounds and a Fat Willy's surf shack sticker which I got on my travels.


Future plans are: Take it to R-Tech to get the stage 1 re done as the one on it at the minute wouldn't be a smooth curve if I had it on a dyno, doesn't feel quite as powerful as a stage 1 should.
Wheels - unsure yet, thinking Porsche but that's been done a lot now, any suggestions?

Rate and slate welcome.

Thanks for looking :D

Yea tbh red wasn't my first choice when I bought it but it had the extras on that I wanted, now it's really grown on me. Just googled those wheels, definitely impressed, will have to keep my eye out for a set. Yea I wanted a sticker when I was on holiday but never managed to, you can get them off the website for £1.50

Yea I had a quick google, gorgeous wheels but cost in excess of a grand :/

Sort out the remap, maybe get some spacers for the time being while I'm on standard wheels cus they look a bit lost in the arches then get some new wheels in the next few months. Other than that I'm not too sure, maybe a miltek but not really interested in going down the stage 2 route due to fuel economy. Have you got a thread for yours?
