So, I've decided to join you guys since I got my car recently and would've been still driving it had it not been for a guy in a minivan who stopped in front of me... I hit him and got a damaged body and suspension to pay for, which is a shame because my car has only around 300 miles or so. :(

Well, following the incident I thought it would be nice to think about some visual mods to make it look more "classy". I'm thinking about chromed grill, black headlight masks and xenon lights for a start:

I'm clueless about wheels, though. I should've gotten hubcaps instead of paying extra for the light alloys but I've bought a "comfort" optional package and I believe the wheels would have been included anyway. And I'm not planning on doing any engine mods now since the car is brand new and that 100 bhp 1,6 litre is enough for now. Actually if I was to mod the engine I'd just swap it altogether with the 1,8 litre engine from the MkIV Golf GTI and chip it to Audi S3 specs (225 bhp). It's used by the current Polo GTI so it will fit in and there should be plenty of old B5 Passats, Audi A3s and Golf GTIs still running around once I decide to do it. :D But I will NOT rice it by putting a GTI badge on it. In fact I'd like it to look more like a high profile vehicle like a Passat.

My car is like this, except it has light alloy wheels and foglights(?):

I'll take some photos of mine once it gets back from service and paste my name along with the Ferrari Enzo. :P

This is my ride with 18" Audi Nuvolari rims:

Those rims made me go bankrupt but they were well worth it, the car looks hot. I'm lowering it tomorrow to give it that sporty look.

Still to do:

- Sport springs;
- Polo GTI front lamps (black mask);
- Polo GTI sideskirts and rear bumper with exhaust;
- Painted bumper, door handles;
- Shark-fin antenna;
- Darkened rear lights;
- Chromed front grille (Jetta-style) or honeycomb grille;
- Xenon lights;
- Maybe, just maybe, turbocharging it.

Yeah that sounds hot & this Polo is a nice small car, but I don't really like hatchbacks.

In Brazil a sedan is sold, that looks like a mini-Jetta. :D

I lowered it and got the chromed grille. People weren't able to identify my car at all. :)
