Hello fellow Polo owners/enthusiasts, I'm Will, I am fairly new to the forum and I am the proud owner of a 9n series polo. I passed my driving test in May and bought my polo as my first car back in early June. So far I've only managed to do some minor mods as my insurance provider is really strict where aftermarket modifications are concerned. I'm running the polo on a reasonably limited budget, but I have started saving for some nice alloys and coilovers etc. I admit that this is more of me showing off my car than a build thread, but it is a build in (very slow) progress anyway. I hope that I can make it look even better than it is currently, once I can ditch my restrictive and in my opinion awful black box insurance. (I'm with Ingenie). Any suggestions of mods I could do when I get around to it would be welcome and appreciated. - Basic Information - Model: 2004 9n Engine: 1.4 FSI petrol Suspension: standard factory sport trim suspension with the 40mm factory drop. (It's practically slammed, right?) Brakes: discs all around. Wheels and Tyres: factory Melbourne alloys. Exterior Styling: black paint, Top Gear and ClubPolo stickers, red brake callipers and LED Sidelights. Interior Styling: tailored floor mats, blue sidelights.

Hi all I just thought I'd start a post concerning the high oil consumption of the FSI direct injection engines . I have serviced many if these , some with good service history and they all suffer from excessive oil consumption irrespective of history, ownership or driving style. Also they have the bad habit of gunking up their throttle butterfly valves. In fact people but German cars thinking they are buying into a tradition of reliability. This from my experience is a reputation built on past glories that has long died. Sorry to say this on a polo website, but if you want reliability buy Japanese . I own a 25 year old Toyota and a 12 year old polo and I know which one has never let me down. Not looking to start an argument here just stating my experience as a mechanic who specialises in German cars
