My Baby Polo — I love everything about this car. It keeps me on the road. It doesnt have a good condition AC, but i love it anyways. The interior is original VW grey. And I havent changed a thing. Its outside grey, is nice and unique.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its wheels, its character.

Cons: the AC

Cheap, Good Looking Runabout — Performance - It's only a 1.0, so it's not about speed!! Build Quality - Fantastic. No rattles, no rust, in near mint condition! Appearance - Newly resprayed with 16v bumpers and roof spoiler. Interior from a 2002 car so almost brand new too Cost of Ownership - 40+ mpg on average, spares cheap due to age of car Fun Factor - Great through the bends, but not much poke! Nippy - that would be the best description

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The way it looks and the running costs

Cons: The lack of top end power, and the fact that it needs new plugs and a wheel bearing

A Very Good Car If You Can Afford Insurance On One With A Biger Engine — performance wasnt verry good it had a 1.4l with only 60bhp and gave it a 0-60 in over 15 seconds and a top speed of 94mph build quality wasnt verry good the dash ahad a crack in it and parts keped falling off the outside of the car appearance ws verry good i really liked it and it had a nice set of fox alloys that were worth just as much as the car :P cost of ownership was quite cheap but insurance group 5E for a car that is verry slow want very good fun factor inside of the car looked verry nice and the colcks were good but the lack of power let it down

Pros: good looking car, easy to drive

Cons: SLOW, high insurance group, gearbox problems

Vr6 Vw Polo — The performance of my Polo is second to none, the torque and power is increddible. it has little niggly problems along the way which include alternator problems and gearbox problems but has been fairly simple to repair yourself. The interior is Fairly standard except for the chrome door levers and heater knobs and the 7inch pioneer cd,dvd, sat nav. The exterior consists of a stainless steel rage de-cat exhaust system, Front and Rear angel eyes, front de badged grill, LED side repeaters, Fox Evolution alloy wheels wrapped in toyo proxes. The next modification is to purchase mk iii leather gold interior and get the body work smoothed off.

Pros: Great car, fairl easy to maintain.

Cons: little boy racers thinkine they have a chance to race in there corsa 1.2
