So I decided it was time to sell up the golf and go for something with a bit more power. The ad was on donedeal for about two hours when I made the trip to Cork to pick up my 2001 polo 6n2 gti, I had been looking at them for a few weeks and this one seemed perfect. It has low mileage and a years nct and has all the standard gti spec xenons electric sunroof 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 thanks to Trevor 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 am going to remove the rear wiper and get aero wipers for the front.
The car was on the site before and have been talking to the owner here is the old thread when it was on Borbets
Old thread.
Current pics below all comments and suggestions welcome will get better pics soon hopefully

Yeah im quite fond of them myself so I think il definatly refurb only 2 of them badly need it id ideally like a polished lip with a gun metal grey centre but to find some one to do it is the problem.

As for wheels... have a look at RadoGlenn's ones for inspiration.

How did you get the last of the glue of the badge in the end,

Oh and that front GTi badge makes it i think


No Tomas yourself and Ivan needed to go to specsavers ah the badges for the back have glue on them already.

This belonged to a friend of mine. She called her Zoe! She got the gearbox and clutch done there in Jan or Feb. The mileage is genuine and it drives very well.

Well wear.
