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.
