VW designed the Polo with elegant lines. It is simple, understated yet good to look at. It does miss out on flair though. If you want to give your Polo a makeover, you should start by giving it a new body kit. There are many body kits on sale across the country depending upon how much you want to spend and what you want. You could also opt only for a WRC/ R Line bumper if the whole body kit is not what you want. There are many options out there. A few companies that do body kits for the Polo are Autopsyche, Autoworx, Motormind.

Low is cool

Lowering is done for multiple reasons. Some want their car to handle better. A lowered car has a lower CG which improves the handling. Especially if you opt for adjustable ones which can be adapted depending upon your driving style. The other advantage is that it looks killer. Indian cars are raised courtesy our bad roads. A simple lowered suspension can add a lot of visual appeal to your car. Bilstein offers a suspension as well as BC Racing.

Gorgeous inside

Since you spend all your time inside the car, it is important for your car to feel good on the inside as well. You can start off by upgrading seat upholstery. You can opt for leather or even custom bucket seats depending upon how deep your pockets are. If you like subtle changes more and have a GT TSi, you could opt for a GTi steering wheel with paddle shifters. You could also get an armrest fixed as well.
