wgdm's 9n FSI Sport

Recommended Posts

wgdm

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.

ICE and Security: Alpine BT mechless head unit, Fli trap 12 subwoofer, standard factory alarm.

Thanks, I'm pretty much obsessed with it being clean, inside and out.

Mine has the 8 speaker setup from the factory, 4 in the front, 4 in the back. They work in the rear side panels, but they're not amazing quality, slightly muffled, maybe even mono as well.

I'm not sure, because mine is the sport trim, but I assume lower trims have working speakers, just not 4 in the back.

Looks nice and clean :) Just got one of these myself. Wasn't sure at first but it's growing on me very quickly - especially the brakes!

Word of advice (on the off-chance you're not already aware): get the chain and tensioners checked - they've a habit of wearing and slackening when not serviced properly.

Thanks, I especially like the FSI engine, I've always thought it sounds 'fruity' for want of a better word.

I've already had it fully serviced, had to get an injector changed a couple of months ago, chain etc was checked as well (-:

Magic! The FSI is growing on me, I must admit - especially the mpg it returns.

Keeping an eye on this and looking forward to the progress :)

Are those error free 13 SMD units? I'm liking them more and more since fitting them as they're so much brighter. I'm looking into getting some whiter main low beam bulbs next as they look really yellow next to these. Keep putting it off as I really don't fancy having to remove the bumber just to change the bulbs...haha.

Looking good though!

They're canbus free error ones, I'm not sure that they're as bright as 13 SMD ones, but they almost look like daytime running lights. I found it really hard to install them, for some reason, you've got to be a contortionist (with the engine and battery getting in the way). Thinking about getting some Xenon-like bulbs for the low-beams, I'm probably going to sort out tints and wind deflectors first though. I think the actual housings for the bulbs are a bad design, it's a right hassle.
