OEM+ Po-Low

What started out as a chilled video shoot suddenly turned into something a tad bit more than that, more in the right direction though. We’ve had our eyes on Jarrod’s 2005 Polo 1.9 TDI Sportline for a few months now, so when he contacted us about doing a video we seized the opportunity. The car has undergone quite a few changes in a rather short space of time as Jarrod acquired the car just over a year ago. The car’s previous wheel setup was a set of 17 inch BBS RS Replicas with the centres done over in a custom bronze finish, back then the wheels specs were 7.5j fronts and 8j rears with a 32 and 35 offset, which looked sweet but his current wheel specs totally drove us nuts. Presently Jarrod is rolling on Schmidt Th-Line Reps 17x8j et28 all-around wrapped in Falken ZIEX 195/40/17 tyres with 6mil spacers upfront for a beefier look.

Assisting gravity is a set of JOM Blue-line Coil-overs with front helper springs removed.

What we really admire is the fact that Jarrod kept it OEM+ and by looking at the car you wont see the subtle differences unless you actually own a 1.9 Tdi

Jarrod kept the interior pretty simple with a Golf V/5 GTI Steering Wheel, Sparco Black leather gearboot with red stitching & Black Suede roof-lining with the A,B,C Pillars sprayed flat black to tie everything together.

Performance was catered for with STO Chiptuning Stage1 Software allowing the car to produce 108kw with 351nm at the wheels  & +- 125kw & 395 nm at the fly.
