Pink Pepper

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I really don't remember if I already had a topic on your forum, did a quick search but did'nt manage to find anything...

I proudly own a pink Polo, bought in France, near Paris, just over a year ago.

It's a "Peppermint". Here's a catalog giving some information on that model, just in case you were interrested... (and if you speak french of course :lol: Oh, and BTW, if my english isn't so good, it's normal, I'm from Belgium and haven't practiced my english for over 10 years...)

Some pictures of the work that's been done on the car, not a full restauration, but still did spend a little time on the little girl!

Condition in which I got her

After a little polish, she looked like this (I did at least 3 "polishs" after that picture... Finally bought some Meguiars, and it's just magic!)

I than decided to change the HZ by a MH (shortly after putting on my BMW E21 rims)

^^How do you know? Because the ever so accurate howmanyareleft (or whatever) said so?

Is it pink, or just faded? And damn I want a servo!

A brake servo, it makes breaking easier but Mk2s in the UK don't have them. (I think it's just mainland Europe that has them.)

Very nice. Got to love these european limited editions. Shame the uk didnt get framboise red until the MK3 polo, and we never got an interior quite as mad as that one. That carpet is awesome :shock:

I'm actually a big fan of all those limited editions, in France, there's louds of them... Makes you crazy!

Forgot to answer you guys about the Transfer! It belongs to a friend... But wish I had one!

And yeah, the interior is kinda psychedelic :D I just changed the (how do you call the "board" that goes over the trunk?) so it could fit with my new interior, a GT interior.

nooooooo! :-( Why change something unique for something everyone else has? Please put the original seats back in (or post them to me :-D)

Agreed, original seats FTW!

I love the carpet, it looks really soft and thick.

Also some pics of the Transfer would be cool, there isn't many decent ones online.

I, of course, kept the original interior! One of the reasons I removed it was to make sure I would'nt damage it, considering the Polo was my daily driver till I got my Jetta back... I'm seriously thinking of putting the original back in, but the interior I've got now ain't so bad! Look, the colors between the seats and the carpet match :D

great build! the gt seats work pretty well and you've kept all the original parts so dont see why anyones that worried. Its in a much better state than when you first got it, going by the early photos you've posted

Thanks mate!

Not such a bad idea the Fire and Ice interior, you think it's exactly the same color? :doubt:

And I never EVER throw away original parts, even when they're broken :lol:

Come on guys, if you keep on insisting, I'll really finish by putting the old seats back in :D

Concerning the ride height... I don't really know actually :lol: Originally it's a -60mm kit, but the guy I bought it from cut a spiral off on the front springs... I'm actually exactly at the same height as a friend who's got -80mm kit... But with those eBay kits, you never really know what you get...
