    Mk3 Polo (90 - 94)

    What can I say over the last few days iv spent hours looking at Mk3 Polo's and im hooked.

    Coupe, saloon and breadvan im hooked.

    Im still learning about SPI, GT and G40 etc. There are endless amounts of things you can do to them and they weigh nothing.

    Coupe:



    G40:



    Van:

    i have a soft spot for the mk3 Polo. Those G40's would have been bonkers!

    shame we live in a place where we got no good early VW's

    Served the last half of my apprenticeship on the Mk3. Was a Top car. The G40 was an animal, one of our guys managed to pop out the gear linkage ball and socket from one during a roadtest!!!! These had serious torque steer, with the G40 all the power would naturally throw itself to the short shaft on the pass side and what do you get get a pavement mowing machine!!!. They sound sooooooo good too with the G Lader. I loved these little cars. Didnt have too much trouble with them apart from an across the board brake pipe mod.
