Here's the new face lift

Posted Image

Here's how the car's transformed so far

Front - original then now​

(SWG front grill & M5 style side mirrors.

p.s. the colour of the car has not been changed, that's just the light)​

Rear - original till now​

(this is it now)​

(first tints then R32 Milltek exhaust, Polo rear wiper, rear valance modification and finally de-badged and de-handled)​

Next on the list is to fit the front bumper and get the grill moulded to it, fit the side skirts and finally come up with a solution for the rear bumper (considering a custom bumper at the moment).

I also fit LEDs in the side mirrors, unfortunately they stopped working shortly after that. I'm still trying to get them up and running again, when I do i'll put some pics up. A big thank you to Karl (username unikarl), thanx for supplying and helping me out with all the LED problems.

Let me know what you guys think

looks great from the back.

Thanx, a guy called Greg Howell in Southam ("Southam Bodies") did it for me. I saw his car before deciding to go ahead with the boot since he has the same done to it and I have to admit, the guy is talented. Really trust worthy also, a fellow Golfer [:p]. Can't be more pleased with the boot.

Looks good, dont like the mirrors though mate.

I'm still considering changing them... they reason I dont like them is because of the poor visibility but I do like the way they look from the outside. I was looking at the Zender mirrors also... still thinking.

I haven't seen the Lupo ones, i'll take a look at them. I dont know about changing the grill, I really like this one, just need to do something about the part where the front badge use to be... bad-boy bonnet should cover it up nicely.

That looks very different from the last time I saw it at the Birmingham meet last year.

I love the rear end mate, that smoothed tailgate looks great!!

Very nice mate. Just wondering, how do you open the boot without the handle?

There's a solenoid which pops the boot open, i'll take a pic of where i got the switch put.

i recn tho that he mesh on the front grill should be black as it looks a bit overly silver at the mo.

Other then that looking good !!

Lookin trick mate, nice and subtle [^]

How easy was it to wire up the solenoid? Also where did you get it from and how much?

I didn't buy or wire the solenoid, I got Greg at the Bodyshop to do it for me. I can find out for you how much and where he got the solenoid from but he's on holiday for a week or so.

I agree, I've already ordered black mesh from www.carstylingdirect.com. I thought the silver mesh might be a lil too much but I didn't have the black mesh at the time so I put the silver one on for now and I thought I can change it to black whenever it arrives.
