2011 Polo GTI, side skirt added..

Postby WildCars » Tue Jun 21, 2011 4:25 pm

HI,

I've added the front spoiler to my GTI, it looks tops..

But i'm bothered with the vehicle from the side, it doesn't look too level, i seriously can't make up my mind, as some says it's good and some says i need to add it on to finish the car.. Can someone please give me some advice?

I like it just the way it is, maybe just add a drop and leave the skirts.

You going to have to do the sides now as well because of the added girth of the front spoiler, I personally wouldn't have done it but also you can really say cause the whole kit is not fitted, after a side skirt and drop is fitted it could just look awesome. You need the side skirts for sure

It comes in plastic primer, you need to spray it to match the car..

I retract my statement, after seeing the pics, it does look more complete with the skirts. :hi:

Can't do the rear..

It's got a GTI diffuser thing, the rear skirt is only for normal polos..

I concur. You cannot do the front spoiler and NOT do the side-skirts. It looks uneven and spoils the look you're going for. It's a no brainer....do it!

That pic just proves my point.

Have to do the side skirts and maybe some spacers as well to sort the stance when you drop it, will look nice n wide.
