A Mildly Excessive GTI

VW names it Golf GTI Excessive.
The name is dramatic sounding but the mods are anything but.
What do you get?
  • a wider track and 30mm wheelarches. each.
  • beefier 370 mm diameter brake discs (310 mm rear)
  • new 19-inch flow-formed BBS motorsport-derived alloy wheels
  • stiffer suspension springs and dampers
  • The 2.0-litre TSI engine is left unchanged – (this is what I mean – How can it be justifiably named excessive?)
  • a free-flowing exhaust system raises power from 210 PS to 214 PS torque rises from 206 to 211 lbs ft
  • a deep front splitter and a pair of revised airdams either side of the front grille
  • a new rear diffuser framed by a set of titanium-tipped exhaust pipes
  • a redesigned wing mounted above the rear window
  • redesigned bucket seats with integrated headrests
