Liam Davies - VW Polo 6r
Once I brought the car it was a case of sorting out air ride for it immediately, with my last car it was one of the last things I did to it before selling so this time I wanted air straight away.

VW polo 6r
I’m 23 from Exeter in Devon. I wouldn’t say I’ve always been into modified cars, it’s become a big hobby of mine in the past few years. Initially, it was friends that got me into liking modified cars as they already had a passion for it and I began to enjoy it as well being around them more.
So I now own a VW polo 6r, I’ve owned this car since March 2019 as a totally standard clean example. I picked this car as I loved the shape of it when seeing them about, it had that modern look to it but nothing over the top like you tend to see with many brand new cars now, I knew I could access parts to it easy enough and being a 5x100 stud pattern I’d have a large range of wheels to select from. What set this car apart for me though from other polos is the colour, it’s rocket orange although in pictures it appears to be red. I only know of one other so it’s not a common colour to see, was a major selling point for me when I was looking at the car.
Once I brought the car it was a case of sorting out air ride for it immediately, with my last car it was one of the last things I did to it before selling so this time I wanted air straight away. With that I added a cast 13 RB1 wheels, Killallwipers de wiper kit, sun strip, change of headlights, splitter and skirt extensions and finally some VXR Recaro seats.
That was 2019 done in terms of mods, however, I managed to get myself rental of a unit space with a couple of friends so it meant I could press on over winter quite heavily with the car and modifications. Exterior wise I added a WRC front bumper that I had the washer jet covers and number plate insert smoothed out. New rear spoiler and a short aerial which I had sprayed in gunmetal. Interior wise I got the headliner, handbrake cover and gear stick cover all re-trimmed in black suede. All interior pillars sprayed gunmetal. Momo 280mm steering wheel, half show cage in orange as well as redoing my boot-build to work with the cage. Pioneer touch screen radio. This took me from late December till early March to complete but due to covid, the car didn’t go to any shows.
Finally, the big change was my wheels, I brought myself a set of OZ Futura that wasn’t in the best condition. Many problems later I went to see a local company by the name of Alleycat wheels, Craig made me aware that they were in worse condition than met the eye and it was going to be a big job to fix it. The barrels needed welding, faces had to be totally re-drilled again as the previous welding done to them was extremely unsafe, faces painted to gunmetal finish. Eventually, in October this year, I got them on the car after thinking it would never happen. So massive thank you to the work Craig done for me, check out his work on Instagram via @theallycat_wheels
The car isn’t finished yet, and I have a few more things I want to add before I’m totally happy with it. I aim to do the 2021 show season with it as a finished car, however. A special thank you to my mate Shaun that has kept me going with the car when things weren’t going well with it and all the help he has given me to get it where it is now.
