On the power front, an ECU optimization from STO-chip Tuning along with a new sports exhaust system and a modified air intake, all do their part to boost the 2.0 TFSI’s output from 200 to 275-horsepower.

The MkV GTI also gets a sports suspension kit from AP that lowers the ride height along with new 19-inch wheels shod in 225/35R19 Marangoni tires, an OEM Golf R32 rear apron and tail pipes, a subtle aero package, and an all-in-one Kenwood DNX520VBT navigation system.
