GTI Tuners Fight Over Volkswagen Spot at SEMA

So at SEMA Volkswagen had 3 spots in total to show off their cars. Two spots were taken by Volkswagen’s own R GTI and Thunder Bunny so they decided to give the third one up to a tuner worthy of the spot. With four tuner’s fighting over the spot, including ABD, APR, H&R and WRD, Eurotuner decided to get involved and have a test to find which tuner is most worthy to stand next to Volkswagen at SEMA. So what did each tuner bring to the table and who won? Read on to find out
