Aerodynamic parts all around

Je Design corrects the somewhat oversized "eyes" on the Polo with headlight screens. With a narrowed vision, the Je Design "Eos" goes looking for its rivals. But they would be anything but impressed with the conventional and standard front. So Je Design gave it a front spoiler, which picks up on the original design and gives the front end a more impressive appearance. The two-piece spoiler blade with a carbon look, attached to the JE front spoiler, gives off the scent of the racetrack. The pair of side sills with air inlets provides an optical lower suspension of the body. Because most people will only get a view of the rear of the car, Je Design makes sure that the people being passed will at least have something nice to look at. A rear wing that diminishes the lift crowns the trunk lid. In addition, there is also a rear apron attachment in a carbon look with a diffuser that is suitable for use with the 4-pipe muffler offered by Je Desogn. As an option, there is also the rear apron attachment without the carbon look.

Added power

Because you can never have enough power, Je Design gives the 2.0 TDI and 2.0 TFSI engine models a little extra horsepower. As a result, the diesel engine delivers approx. 176 hp (standard: 140 hp) at 4000 RPM. You can pass other cars quickly thanks to the 298 lbs-ft. The added power also affects the top speed: 131 mph compared to 128 mph for the standard model. Naturally, that also improves acceleration from 0 to 60 mph. A time of 10.3 seconds is reduced to 9.2 seconds. The TFSI also takes on wings. The turbo gasoline-engine car delivers approx. 244 hp at 5100 RPM (standard: 200 hp) once the engine timing has been modified. 206 lbs-ft is increased to 224, and a speed of 144 mph is increased to148. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is achieved in 7 seconds, an improvement of 8/10. Of course, the engines still satisfy the AU regulations. And as is expected of a serious tuner, Je Design delivers the increased performance with TÜV technical component reports.

The lower suspension set, which lowers the "Eos" by about 30 mm, promises better road handling. Alternatively, Je Design also offers coilover suspensions (adjustment range of 35-65 mm). The 19-inch "Multispoke" rims in 8x19ET 45 with 235/35 R 19 tires round out the overall picture perfectly. JE DESIGN offers more elegant rim sets in shadow-silver or in SLC chrome. "Multispoke" rims in 7.5x18 ET 45 with 235/40 R 18 tires or 7.0 x 17 ET 45 with 235/45 R 17 Y tires are optionally available.

On request, Je Design can install a 330x28mm 4-piston sports brake system on the front axel for improved deceleration, thereby making a valuable contribution to driving safety.

Because the sound of the standard "Eos" is nothing to sing about, why not consider having the Je Design muffler system added to the order sheet? Je Design offers the system, which is made of corrosion-resistant high-grade steel and equipped with two 90-mm tail pipes.
