May as well!  Though I wonder how long it will be until that turns non-car related too...

2nd post mart,
As soon as vicki reads it she will be going on about other things,
Ill mod it in appearance but not performance, well perhaps an induction filter from ram air, but nothing else can be done,

Lenny, always keeping us entertained :) 
 
BBS and tints would make it looks slick. Like the fact that it's black and 3 doors. Or, taking a leaf from mighty car mods videos, you could always get some bigger steel rims and have them lightly stretched out like they did. Also, could get spacers to widen the tracks. Cheap but it would look awesome and especially if you get the steelies painted or powder coated. Just my thoughts. 

Enjoy the new car :)


Thanks mate,
Bigger rims such as 15 or 16" would be nice, but I've learned from fitting 18x8 to the 1.6TDCi focus,
Bigger rims contribute to "unsprung mass" which reduces some power going to the road,
If the polo was the 1.6GTi model then id stick on a set of 16" but since its a 3 cylinder 8 valve 1.2ltr engine putting out 55bhp at the wheels ill stick to 14" rims but some sort of alloy upgrade before Christmas,

Lenny Ibe added an addition too, mines being sitting in a garden for two years so its got two years of crap on it but it will get there.
 
And its a lot bigger than you think when its infront of you lol.
 
Ps just noticed its the opposite of your plans, small economical black and green detail, mine large not economical (4.0L) green and black detail LOL

That's a serious machine there mate, :lol: reminds me of ace Ventura flying through the forest in somthing similar, I'm sure it sounds great aswell tyres must cost a fortune though?

"Exit stage left"
On route in convoy leaving the Levin with its new owner.

Thanks mate,
On route home now in the focus after sale.

Ah well, back to modding the Focus I guess :P

He wont get time to mod anymore of the focus with all the moaning when he gets the ring on his finger, 7hour round trip with him whinging the whole way home! "Stop slamming on, its 30° back here, oh yeah open all the windows cus you pay for diesel, go drive thru, i cant read in the car it makes me sick, ye couldnt do that in levin, ye finished throwing me about back here, stop dancing, what you grinning at,stop waving to people......arrrrgggghhhh men!

Well he has just lost the love of his life!

Love of his life lol ....tats his mammy!

Ugh up at 6am tomorrow checked the satnav 3hr5min journey to first destination followed by a 2hr1min journey to second destination followed by 2hr 52min journey home
Departing 7am should be home by 4pm allowing time for toilet stops and Sunday drivers.

:lol: bought a new to me motor, more sedate in power, room for the kids, cheaper tax, comes with full years NCT just passed last week needs nothing and bought it within budget of selling the Levin aswell as all accessories, hence today and yesterdays 8hr road trips dropping off parts then collecting the motor.
Fantastic outcome, cost 50 euro less than the total profit of selling the "snagglepuss project" to various investors across the country ;)
Needs nothing until april 2015 which allows me to save for the wedding as planned aswell as allowing Vicki have the focus throughout the pregnancy which will be essential as time goes on in order to complete the school run and checkups in hospital,

1.2petrol 2003 9N2 Volkswagen Polo Comfortline spec 3 door hatch in gloss black,
