My black 6n2 gti, New wheels :)

Recommended Posts

myles08

Hi all its my first post so said id show my new polo gti I had a 1.4 golf before this and the polos a great step forward :) . I'm located in Ireland anyway It has low mileage and a years nct and has all the standard gti spec xenons electric sunroof which is great! air con 6 disc changer. It came with a BMC CDA induction kit which sounds great and ta technix coilovers.

So far I have put anni red gti badges on it yellow lamin x on the fogs german plates and a small aerial. Hopefully during the week I will get some red trim for the grill. Tomorrow I am getting a dent removed from the bonnet and in the future I am planning either new wheels or refurb the old ones as I think they may look well with a polished lip I also removed the rear wiper and will get aero wipers for the front. Also thinking about a black roofliner.

Current pics below all comments and suggestions welcome will get better pics soon hopefully ;)

Small update but an update none the less, fitted some audi tt pedals. Also tidied up the engine bay by trimming down the old cover to fit over the induction kit. Also fitted a black rear view mirror and put 10m h&r spacers on the rears.

TT Pedals.

Well the car passed the NCT so decided to treat it to some new shoes.

Decided to bite the bullet and buy some proper wheels. Got a set of Steffan BCWS. Need to get new rear tyres.

Front : 8j et 15 with 175/50/14s.

Rear : 9j et 10 still need to get tyres. Will have them on in the new year.

They were 14s I dont have the actual spec of the wheels to hand as I had just borrowed them. They didnt fit great at all to be honest rubbed the hell out of my arches, by right i would need to flare my arches and get them rolled, same will go for my new steffans :o
