Schmidt Revolution does the Volkswagen Golf GTI

An attractive tuning kit has just been released by Schmidt Revolution for the Mk5 Volkswagen Golf GTI.

The visual highlight of the kit would be the 19-inch red and black wheels, wrapped in Margangoni tires. Schmidt Revolution also dropped the car, added a dual exhaust system, sport tuned suspension and fitted the rear with the original bumper for the R32. On the inside, a Kenwood navigation system has been added.

The kit doesn’t leave out performance, with a 74hp upgrade kicking total power output up to 271hp. Starting with the 2.0-liter TSFI motor, the ECU gets an upgrade as well as the air intake.

From the perspective of a GTI fan, this is a nice tune, although power upgrades could have been improved upon.
