9n3 GTI Daily: Big First Post

Post by Just Ad » Wed May 22, 2013 1:33 pm

Had my polo for a couple of months now and thought it was time to get me a thread going. Such a nice car to drive and alot better than the french s**t I had before!

Anyway heres some pics/progress I've done so far...

The day I bought her, 1 owner, full VW service history, 45k on the clock.
Pretty much perfect apart from a scrape on the front bumper and general stone chipping <_<
Image


First thing to get done was the cambelt and head unit, which I love
Image


Picked up a Forge Spitter R for cheap, the sound never gets boring!
Image


PD160 intake and Pipercross panel filter was next.....Possible nominee for dirtiest engine bay??
Image


Resolved this...
Image


With these...
Image


Drivers side was an absolute monster to do, alot of hammers and cursing along the way
Image

Quick one outside the gym, coilies have settled now and pretty happy with the height.
Image

Next got my honeycomb grills on, went for the stingy bugger cheap versions with no cut-out for the intercooler, used a dremel and saved myself £35.
Colour coded the badges and de-laminxed the fogs too..
Image

Image

Image

Image

Quick trip to sheffield to pick up some wheels, that as far as I'm aware, have never been done on a 9n3 before...or any dub that i can find!
Image

Some progress on les wheels, picked them up from capper today after he drilled a taper for the wheel bolts
Image


Specs:

Image


I wanted something that hasn't been done before, but no doubt someone will be able to prove me wrong ;)
Image

Image

Might not be to everyones taste but I've always loved these wheels, still alot needed to be done, just need to sand down the shoddy powdercoat on them

Hit in with the lowering stick again, adjusters completely out on the rear and wound all the way down on the fronts.

Removing this gave an extra 15mm at the back
Image

Image

All lowered and waiting on the wheels, adapters ordered and tyres coming soon
Image

Finally wheels are on... There was alot of cutting, grinding and cursing throughout

Anyway I'll let the pics do the talking...

Professional arch rolling

Nice ride!! I also came from a French box on wheels, VW's are built 100000000 times better!

How much camber do you have on the rears? Did you just use camber shims? Looking to get some on mine and yours looks perfect.

Thanks, had a saxo and went through 3 torsion beams before seeing the light!

Its just natural camber that, not added shims yet, although think 1.5degree would be spot on :wink:

I like the stance, sits well.

Please tell me who you bought the wind deflectors off (exact seller) the ones on ebay say wont fit the 9n3 according to the seller even when it says 9n 2002-2009, mines a 2006.

Cheers.
