Hi from the UK

Hi,

I'm Rob - I drive a '98 VW polo (6N for all you dubbers). I don't think it was sold over in the States but its kinda cool - basically designed for cheap family transport, true VW idIology, and Cruising on the german autobahns at high speed so its quite slippery for a mid ninties hatchback.

I bought it as a project car as My last Hypermiler (vauxhall astra diesel) was totalled when i was tailgated on the highway.

Plans?
a few aero tweaks mainly out-of-sight-out-of-mind stuff like undertrays, skinny tyres, lowering, stop/start button etc wheel trims

Pics to follow
