Here is my 2018 Polo. Here in China it is a 2018 model but everywhere else it is the 2016 model. We get imported cars 2 years behind for whatever reason. We also do not get the same motor options. This one has a China only 1.5L. I customized the interior with a faux red leather and put some 17x7.5s on by K-Speed (Chinese brand) with 215/40r17s by Nankang. I also lowered it a few cm with a Chinese lowering kit. What are your thoughts? I also added red VW logos to the front and back instead of the stock. I ruined the red steering wheel cover day one and had replaced it with one with more black so it was not so easy to destroy. Also, the floors are all custom.

I don't know if it's from my side but I can't see the photos and this sounds pretty interesting

Welcome to the forum @Pantalyra. I’m not able to see the photos either.

Sorry I just edited the post. Used another site for image hosting. Looks like it is working fine now.

I love the steering wheel cover. Was it custom or bought off the internet? If it was the latter, could you provide a link or the name of the retailer?

First one in red was custom. Put on by the guys who did my seats and floors. I got oil on it I could not remove. Replaced it with the darker one which I bought from a local shop. I am sure you can get similar at steeringcover.com. They have 100s and do custom covers.

It took me a few tries to get the hang of it. Which is not an issue as you can just pull the thread back out and start over. Keeping the stitch tight and at an even width was the hardest part. I would have loose areas and tight areas. So I would pull the thread back out and try again. Then you figure out how to keep it even and it is not so bad.
