Did they need much? i was looking into using modified polo 6N2 ones, i'd imagine these are pretty much the same coilovers?

I had to do a fair amount of fabrication for them to fit properly

From memory the 6n2 uses a different top mount set up to lupo's and has a different spring to suit the top 'cup', but it would best if you double check for yourself to be sure. My knowledge of polo's is more mk1-mk2f, my only dealings with later polo's is robbing the engines from them for earlier ones lol
