The build of my polo 6r

 

Right so a month ago I bought a 2010 polo 6r 1.6tdi to replace my first car a lupo. The first few mods I have done are lowered it on fk coilovers, had it remapped by ecopower and changed all the lights to Xenon white light to give it a newer look I have a lot more planned and will keep the thread updated with photos and my future mods cheers jack

Maxed out in front coilovers but I have helper springs still in so they will be coming out next and then it will be take the full adjusters out the back as they are already maxed out on the back

Wheels are lovely, it's amazing what wheels can do to the look of a car so can't wait to see them on!

I would check that with the stretch you have that the bead of the tire is sitting correctly, it's illegal now and an MOT failure if there is too much stretch, there's a guide somewhere here from recently on the case.
