I'm now 17 got a 6n2 recently, been looking around for quotes but everywhere is ridiculously high, obviously i want to put alloys and coilovers on to stop her looking like a tank but the quotes just double, does anyone know a good place for first time drivers to get decent quotes considering i will have mods, its a silver 1.4 8v 6n2. Cheers
Hey guys, new to the forums and just as new too this whole car modding stuff ! Pretty much I currently drive a 2008 9n3 polo and recently bought some alloys off a mate of mine who had them on a golf. I was aware he had to get spacers and another adapter kit to make them fit but I thought that was just to turn 5x100 alloys to fit his 5x112 golf. I've got some very nice but far too large 18" seat leon cupra R alloys on my polo and although I love them they rub when I'm in full lock and my entire car is fucked! Cant pull out nearly as fast as i could, the steering and handling is horrible and i've even seen my speedometer start going down when going up hill with foot flat down... I was just wondering, whats the largest size I can get on a polo without it rubbing or affecting the cars abilities? Not that I want to go super fast but I'd like to be able to pull out quickly again and get up too speed as reasonable as a 1.4 goes. Also as tyres go, I heard you can stretch smaller sized tyres onto larger alloys? That would be useful as the tyres on the stock alloys (14/15") are almost brand new but I have a feeling I'm gna need some new tyres. If so, who would recommend which type? Preferably low profiles? Sorry to drag on but thanks in advance!
Hey guys, Got a 6n, and have been talking to a mate at work and he's got some team dynamics equinox wheels. They're 17" too which means i'd have to raise my car a little which is a shame. These wheels come with a chrome rim which you can remove (which i've already planned to do if i have them off him, cos it looks a little tacky and they're a bitch to replace if curbed.) At the moment they're just standard colored alloy wheels, but if i was to take them i'd have the spokes black (maybe a little fleck in them too) and the rim polished. Just wondered if you guys had any opinions or views of what i could do with the wheels to make them look better or something? Thanks for your time!
