      Greetings!

      Greetings all. I'm new to the forum (clearly) so decided to go ahead and make a post introducing myself.

      So let's start by saying this is my first forum that I signed up in India that relates to cars. I actually am from Chicago and here for business related purpose. Will be staying here for another 1-2 years. My opinion on cars differ vastly from people I met on Indian car enthusiast and truly am saddened by the fact that this market doesn't actually get cars that are worth buying. Hopefully it changes in the future.

      Enough of that, I currently own a 2016 VW Golf GTI producing over 423whp and 480 lb-ft of Torque. I usually race from time to time (street drag and track). Now since I'm here, I hope to buy a new Polo and try to replicate what I did to my Golf GTI and hopefully get a fun little car to drive around while I'm here.

      Here are some pictures of the cars. I have included Stock as well as after some mods. Also in case you're wondering, yes I did all the work on the car by myself.






























      Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to being on this forum!

      Welcome to Gearheads. Thats a sweet car! Do post more details of your build logs in the appropriate forums. It must be one hell of a read.

      I had a fully built engine running IMS820 turbo from Iroz Motorsports. This was 6MT. If it was DSG, I would have loved it, but something about manual you just can't beat it.
