But you're absolutely right though....... its gonna end up costing almost what a new Leon Cupra R 225 did!I like it.
Fine if it looks like a Mini Golf GTI by me, there are those of us
that like the looks and ideals of the MK5 GTI but either can't afford
one or don't want the huge size of it (or both in my case!).
It won't have the MK5 Golfs new rear suspension so won't handle that
well really, and for performane figures just look at either the Ibiza
FR 1.8t or MKIV Golf 150 1.8t, similar weights all round.
Cost wise I would think it would be about two grand dearer than an
Ibiza FR 1.8t, which just makes the Fabia vRS even more of a bargain!
Apologies to badge fascists for mentioning other 'lesser' brands!
Great, but with that ?2k your gonna spend, this is a supermini that isJust think....with that engine Revo'd, Lowered with ARBs and the 18"
wheels off the Golf GTi you'll have a great track day/fast road car
that looks OEM.
Alternative rear lights are available for it, there was a picture of some a couple of months ago in Volkswagen Driver magazine. I've seen a couple of these facelifted Polos about now and the lights front and rear are awful. The black fronts are a big improvement.At ?15.5k i would certainly consider one
it would be a beast after a re-map and the only bad thing about it is the rear lights
