Volkswagen Polo By JE Design
Popular with little old ladies and mums on the school run, the Volkswagen Polo is not a car that naturally lends itself to wild tuning. But that hasn’t stopped JE Design from coming up with a new bodykit and distinctive paintjob for the latest Polo.
It’s a full bodykit consisting of front bumper and spoiler, side skirts and a rear bumper with carbon-effect diffuser. Headlight brows give the front a more aggressive look that is finished off nicely with LED running lights. There’s also an optional centrally mounted sports exhaust with twin pipes that gives a better sound.
A set of lowering springs can be fitted around the standard shock absorbers to drop the ride height by 35mm, or you could go further with a new KW coilover suspension setup that lowers the Polo by 65mm.
No bodykit would be complete without a new set of wheels and JE Design have got some choices. Their new ‘Multispoke’ design is available in either 7×17 inches or 7.5×18 inches with tyres measuring 215/40 R17 or 215/35 R18. There’s also a choice of finishes – Shadow Silver or matt black with a silver bead around the rim. If that’s not enough the wheels can be trimmed with a bead in the same colour as the car.
If there’s still money left over you can choose to deck out the interior in various shades of leather or suede. The steering wheel, gear stick and handbrake are covered along with the seats, and even the colour of the stitching can be specified. The seats can also be fitted with new heating elements or a massage system.
