sky is the limit! I like that!
i like volkswagens
nice one troy! that's dedication and determination - "modding" the polo has made me go the other way - apart from coilies, bushes, tyres and remap, im not going to go any further than that haha.
how do you find the falkens? do they need much heat in them, and are tyre pressures easy to find/sort?

Tried to do some work today, but things didnt go my way.
Stripped the bottom bolt of the rear calipers, not much room to get a 1/2 drive in there, Doh. Going to have to wait till Tim can weld something to the bolt to get it off
I was trying to put these on
