John’s GTI: Just a little bit

Two words come in my mind when I lay eyes on John’s GTi. Clean and simple, unfortunately these are over used words. I’d say we are dealing with something much more pristine than anything.

Aggressive aesthetics of this euro-tuner combined with some lovin’ from the owner makes the VW unique.  Staggered AMG style chrome wheels and Raceland coilover suspension does the fitment justice. The madness didn’t end with just fitment; John took engine components into consideration for his build as well. From the FORGE front mount and custom exhaust to the APR stage 2+ clutch that puts the power to the asphalt.

Locally John see’s too much Nissan and Honda, with his Volkswagen he wanted to be different. “I come from being a Honda lover,  and moving on to the GTi makes the ride feel smoother.  Overall, the car is just amazing” says John.
