Welcome to my thread for my Polo GTI. Technically I've never left Polo ownership since 2009, my first car was a 6n2 which I still own. Since since then I've owned some shocking vehicles, two Vauxhall Corsas & a Peugeot 307SW I suppose have to be the worst. So after my Fabia vRS kept throwing bill after bill at me, I decided enough was enough. I looked at nearly new Polo GTI's, which were oddly enough more expensive than buying a brand new one. Choosing the spec was a bit of a difficult one for me, I didn't want to over spec as with VW, and any manufacture I suppose, additions soon add up and you are soon up to Golf money! But obviously I didn't want to buy a new car and regret not speccing it well enough for the next 3 years or however long I keep it, so I want with the convenience pack & sport pack. I cannot imagine many drastic modifications to the car to be honest, the idea of going with a new car was to make the most of a warranty.

kwijibo_coupe posted a topic in Mk3 PoloModel: 1992 Polo CL Coupe Engine: 1390cc AFH on standard 6n injection Suspension: TBC Brakes: Standard Wheels and Tyres: BMW E30 Bottle Tops 14 x 6 ET35 Exterior Styling: Standard, rusty, bit of a state Interior Styling: Corrado seats, GT clocks To Do List: Too much to list... Better late than never for a build thread I suppose. I bought this Polo at the Polo Social 2017. Within 5 minutes of being on site at the Social it was affectionately nicknamed "The White Shed of Excellence" thanks to @jonPDpolo. The reasons for which I'll not go into, if you know...you know. The thing was a state, had been sitting for a while since the previous owner had moved abroad. However it had been converted a few years ago to an AFH and had been looked after at some point. So as a result it drove back to the camp site and then back home to Scotland the next day pretty much flawlessly. This is how I picked it up. Unfortunately lost the 'L' from this windscreen sticker Got it home and desperately had to do something to it right away. First thing I thought of was swapping the old clocks out for a set with a rev counter. A few days later it went up to visit the 'Death Van' which was sitting up at my mates house. We agreed on a deal for him to buy the van off me so long as I could take "a few" parts off the car... I may have taken a little bit more than I made out... Anyway the front end of the car went from this. To this. Much better I thought. Over the next few weeks when time allowed it was just a case of cleaning things up when I could. Starting with the state of the engine bay. I do love the look of an AFH in these. Also sorted something that had been annoying me from a safety point of view. The Corrado seats have a really tall seatbelt clip. Me being a skinny chap meant the lap belt didn't actually contact me at all. Just went over the seat and flopped about. So to try and avoid submarining in the event of an accident I swapped the Corrado seatbelt clip for one off a G40 seat. Success, the lap belt now contacts me as it should with a bit of room in the belt to spare before the stopping pin thing. Onto a cosmetic annoyance was the colour coded bumpers. As I'd changed the front for a none colour coded item I set about changing the rear. The best one I had in my collection was a 'race spec' one that had been drilled a bit Looks better than the colour coded one anyway. A few more bits and pieces were sorted then it was time to put it on a complete set of wheels. Went for a set of 14" BBS RAs at first which I think looked alright. I then got my hands on a set of BMW E30 bottle tops. I think they looked a little better. That was pretty much that for a while.
Hello! I'm João, from Portugal, and this is my Polo. It's a 1989 Mark II Typ 86C Steilheck model, powered by a 1.0l engine with about 45hp. Bought it 6 years ago, with about 11.200km. It has now about 55.300km and it's my daily. It's totally original (and in need of some small things) and the objetive is not having a "project car" by the definition of it, but have it as is, the most OEM possible while possible, so the maintenance will be the most important thing on this project. This breadvans are not that common here in Portugal, and when I need some sort of part, it's not easy to find it. When I join your club, I was looking for some parts, but then I realize how popular is/was this model in UK, so I decided to be part of the family and since that I'm not sorry. I did not made many friends here, but I feel I'm part of it (also, I believe, because I'm not from UK and because of that I cannot join meets and other events). I've said it when I had the other topic, but I'll say it again. My Polo is not the best on forum, and I know that. Also, to be honest, I'm quite far from "the best out there". There are many excelente projects out there, and many awesome topics. Mainly not that original as mine I believe, but nevertheless worst. To be quite honest, I do think my Polo is not that bad, nor phisically or mecanically, but I know that there's always work to do, and that's also why I love cars. They are never ready, and we bond with them and with other people alike. Right now I'll post some photos of how it looks, but I want to get the older photos (all of them, that I had on the other topic!) in order to post them here. That way I can have a updated topic and with all the big things I've done in these years. General Info: Maker: Volkswagen Model: Polo II Typ 86C Steilheck (Squareback) Year: 1989 Color: Alpinweiß (L90E) Engine: 4 straight cylinder, 1043cc 45cv/hp @ 5600rpm (carb Weber 32TL) Gearbox: 4 speed, manual Weight: 735kg (1625lbs) SpritMonitor: http://www.spritmonitor.de/de/detailansicht/543596.html Manufacturer MPG: 8.0l/100Km P.S.: This is not a new entry here, on forum. Actually, I had a topic of my own about this very Polo. Yet, I had some issues with the images I've posted, and because of that I decided to delete the old topic and create a new one.
