The Volkswagen Golf R is an extremely capable car. Were it not for the quad-exhaust tips and slightly sportier styling, you might not be able to tell it apart from your average family hatchback. Some people might call it boring. I call it a sleeper. Coming from a Focus RS mk3, I do miss the friendly waves from other owners, acknowledging that you have the same great taste in cars as them. But this subtlety could also be seen as a plus, attracting less unwanted attention. I think the end result, whilst being subtle, is very refined. Some owners may choose agressive aero to suit their style, however I prefer an OEM+ look to create something that could easily have come from the factory. To achieve this, I've made a few small cosmetic changes. First off is the gloss black Maxton Design V.6 front splitter, which fills in the central gap on the standard car, resulting in a slightly more agressive front end. You'll also notice the Revo RV018 alloys. I think this motorsport style suits the MQB platform perfectly, in terms of both style and fitment, and are a huge upgrade from the factory Cadiz alloys this car came with from the factory.
