BlueMotion tech 1


WallStreet

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

 

I once had the VW 2001 Polo 1.4 16V petrol auto. It was underpowered. 

 

Recently I bought myself a 2008 low mileage 1.4 tdi BlueMotion tech 1. I absolutely love this car. It’s both stock cute & nippy to drive. 

 

Plans:-

 

1. Retrofit cruise control 

2. Eibach proline springs to replace stock (1 corner is damaged)

3. Remote key fob as there’s none for locking, bought a kit from eBay I hope it works 

4. Parking distance control front & rear, it sits behind the bumper safely tucked.

5. Bilt Hamber DC & UC for the the chassis to stop corrosion. Independant tests show it comes out amongst the top. 

6. New OEM rear lights going in to freshen the look

7. Respray front & side rear, fix tiny dent 

8. Figuring out if it has a MFA on the centre console (see my other topic)

9. Need to put in seat covers as I find it stains easy. I will stain proof with scotchguard or gyeon.l

10. Rubber mats in boot & inside

11. Tinted rear windows

 

 

 

 

The frugality is amazing! It does 50-55mpg in the city, 66+ mpg on motorways at 70-85mph. So I could even improve it.

Hey Max - did you do this to a 9n3? I'm tempted to figure this out while we've got the spare time on our hands!
