My Vivo GT : End of the road

Postby Kyle » Wed Sep 25, 2013 10:45 am

So I thought I should start a thread to document the progress on my Vivo.

Model: Polo Vivo GT
Year: 2013

Done so far:

35mm H&R drop
Cupra Lip
Rear badge delete
Badge blackout

On to the pics:

Pre-Delivery

Image

Hated the 4x4 look :bang:

Image

So it went from this:
Image

To this:
Image

I'm happy with the current drop, its good as a daily.

Random cellphone shot

Image

More pics to come :thumbup:

Thanks for watching :hug:

Decided to remove rear badges (because people already know what car it is)

The Vivo badge came off too easily, though the polo was stuck on much better, difference in quality perhaps??

So pics:

before:

Image

After but before the cleaning:

Image

Decided to black the badges out
