    Okay, so i bought this on monday 15th June:

    got a Polo GTi 0_1

    Not a bad car by a long way, straight and tidy.

    Howerver i already knew what i wanted to do with a GTi so the day be4 i bought these from a guy in Essex

    got a Polo GTi Image044

    8j Front and Rear Surprised

    First of all I started by refurbing the wheels, they wont be to everyones taste but i really think they work

    got a Polo GTi LGIM0074

    The test fit:
    POKE!

    got a Polo GTi CID4802

    got a Polo GTi LGIM0077

    Well as you can see they poke quite alot so as i wanted to stay as low as poss we decided on Regal Autosport ajustable camber shims and 175-50-15 tyres.

    So after the camber shims arrived we went for 1.5 deg of negative camber and 0.12 deg of negative toe to clear the arches. we ajusted the front to match

    During fitting the shims the rear hub split and the wheel bearing when eveywhere so i got some shiney new hubs

    got a Polo GTi LGIM0079

    got a Polo GTi LGIM0078

    got a Polo GTi P1020315

    got a Polo GTi P1020301

    While i was playing man game in our workshop at work my other half (Ami) had me fully strip out my A,B and C pillers and roof lining for a bit of random retriming. here ar the results:

    got a Polo GTi P1020319

    got a Polo GTi P1020318

    got a Polo GTi P1020316

    again not to everyones taste, but i don't care (Big Big Big thanks to Ami)

    Last but not least, during the wheel refurb i decided that the plastic centre caps were to badly cracked and weathered, so i sent them to a friend to have them remade in Carbon fibre (thanks stu Smile )

    got a Polo GTi P1020303

    All that was left was to finaly ajust the coilovers to sit right (big thanx to my mate Kev) and give it a clean (thanx Adski), we gave it a good wash, used Dodo Supernaturals Clay and then waxed it using Dodo Supernatural wax:

    got a Polo GTi P1020320

    the coilovers have settled now so we lowered the back a little bit more today

    Got a few more thngs going on atm, got a splitter being made in carbon fibre and a new pin strip for the grill and a new GTi grill badge as my 'i' in a bit faded

    i'm only gonna use the Bonnet bra in the winter months, but, Ami has has had our 'OEM+' club logo stitched into it in Cherry red.
