I'm glad I've got this car now, I think it's quite nippy in comparison to others in its class, but my LOLA is fully stock right now as I save every penny I can, to invest in her before summer arrives. I wasn't sure what to get now that my ban has been lifted & with a full year tax & insurance, I'm intending to make Lola shine as I ride through these Suffolk streets, where I live there is a healthy car scene, so evidently, I want to make my chariot stand out, so I can attend my gigs & events in style, while not look like a boy racer, but a mature enthusiast & let my VAG turn a few heads. At this point, nothing has been done, other than a service & a full tank of fuel, as I'm also buying my missus the A3 she has been nagging me for, so I don't have to carry the kids in mine, because I'd just be kidding myself, given all the wear & tear they can provide, lol. So this is my toy, my mobile man cave, on the day I took these pics we were just about to drive to Hunstanton beach, for this Easter holiday, so the car is full of stuff, but it's taken 140+ miles of driving, for her to grow on me, now I can't wait to get back home & get stuck in...my wishlist has grown but hopefully you'll like the finished article. I hope you'll joined on my quest to transform my little Lola in time for summer. My plan: 'Keep her simple!' - I like the 1.4 16v motor, so other than a performance Filter & exhaust system(unless someone shouts Webber Carb Conversion!), I want her serviced & performing up to spec. I'm focusing on perfecting the bodywork & paint, so she looks brand new. I need to paint the calipers,fit a set of coilovers & a set of alloys, at this point I like the Montreal II. I want a spotless clockpit & a better double din stereo to listen to my new material, while on the move. She needs halogen bulbs & model badge removal, maybe a boot spoiler & tint the glass a little darker, plus one or two little personal touches to finish up. Simple but effective, ultimately I want the new GTI but that's another story for another time!!!! But for now, this is my LOLA 9N.
Just out of curiosity, what is the best 'Filter/exhaust' combination for a '1.4 16v 9n'??? If this has been covered already, please tag it in the comments below? I'm not exactly looking for a massive power increase, just modest performance improvements, a sportier sound & obviously a nicer look, at the moment my motor is stock, but I'am planning a full service, clean up & other bits.
Hello guys, I'm Tyson Knight, originally from Edgbaston, Birmingham, but now living in Haverhill, Suffolk. I've just got myself a Black 2003 VW Polo, a stock 1.4s 5dr, its done about 97k for about £1k, with only 3 previous owners since new & well looked after given its present condition, other than a few scratches, it looks & drives brilliantly. I've owned a MK2 Astra 1.4(GTE look-a-like), a Modified Mk2 Fiesta 1.2L, but was banned for street racing back in 1999, I've only just got back on the road & this was my first purchase, as I got back on the road. I worked in Car body repair & refinishing, construction, as a brick layer/laborer & scafolder, but in 2013 suffered a serious car crash, when my Missus sent our Alfa Romeo 147 into a telegrapgh pole at 120mph, we survived but my career has ended due to my injuries, so I foucused on making a living from my life long hobby in music production, but would love to get back into body repair, but sadly thats a dying trade in Haverhill. When I approached a few friends of mine about tuning & styling my polo 'Lola', they also suggested I google 'Club Polo' & I have to say I like what I've found on here & on the facebook page, in fact the whole scene is fantastic, the Fords/Vauxhall lads dont compare, they seem quite anal in comparrison, but 'VAG' enthusiasts dont care what you drive or how stock your motor is, they are water-cooled & always willing to help each other with projects. I have not had Lola long, I've driven her 172+ miles since buying her, but will be ready to begin work on her by early june at the latest & will be updating as often as I can over the coming months, in time for 2016 summer events, I hope to hear from you guys & meet some of you at club events through out the year, BIG RESPECT going out to all you 9N owners! Peace. TK & Lola x
