The unmistakeable hot hatch. Perfect in every way (almost).

The iconic styling of the VW Golf GTI make it stand out more than anything else. Specifically, the signature red pinstripe that runs through the front bumper and into the headlights. It has become a distinguishing mark that still continues to this day. It really is impossible to miss a GTI coming your way. The same 2.0 turbocharged block that powers the vast amount of Golf GTI's, also powers this one. This car has become the "Go-to" car of the hot-hatch range. So if it's a favourite, why is there such a vast array of aftermarket tuning options? Along with a huge range of aesthetic modifications? The reason that there is a plethora of aftermarket choices is because the Golf is so popular. It has become so mainstream that if you want to stand out from the crowd, you need to adjust the design or engine. It so recognisable, but does that make it boring? Is it missing something? Is there something that can make your Golf, or any car for that matter, stand out from the crowd?
