The Mk8 Golf features all the latest technology with lane assistance and adaptive cruise control. The large touchscreen has the VW’s advanced Sat Nav system along with Apple Carplay.
As our demonstrator we have naturally improved the car further with our suite of upgrades. Power is increased to 400bhp with our Stage 2 upgrade which sees our ECU calibration work combined with effective upgrades which allow the engine to breath more easily.
To allow the engine to consume cold air effectively we replace the original air box with the proven R600 intake kit and this is connected to a larger bore turbo intake pipe which removes the restrictive original item with a +10mm larger pipe with provides a smooth transition into the turbo. These provide a noticeable improvement in not only power but throttle response and turbo spool time. At the same time the addition of a catalytic convertor back exhaust system which helps reduce the back pressure the turbo works against whilst enhancing the sound and purpose of the engine under acceleration, all while maintaining emission standards.
The Clubsport also features our Nitron suspension kit to improve the ride comfort and handling. The suspension features Nitron’s NTR 2-way damping adjustment so the ride can be tailored to each driver. The car has also had our 4 wheel alignment for fast road use and precise handling.
To further compliment the handling performance of the car we have added Protrack high quality lightweight Motorsport alloy wheels. With the wider wheels (18”x8.0) and Michelin Pilot Sport 5 tyres on the Clubsport this wheel and tyre combination still reduced weight by 2kg per wheel of unsprung mass. These wheel provided a better offset and provide a 7mm wider track for improved handling and stability. The wheels now fill the arches more readily especially when running the car at a lower ride height. The Protrack wheels also feature a 5mm knurling on the circumference of the wheel to help secure the tyre in place under extreme acceleration and cornering.
To finish off the car we have protected the front of the car with Gyeon PPF which covers the bumper, bonnet and wings. The paintwork is also treated in Gyeon’s award winning Ceramic Coating to help keep it looking at its best.
This car has covered just 14,500 miles and comes with the balance of the Volkswagen Warranty and a 12-month warranty on the drivetrain from ourselves. If the buyer is interested, we have all the original parts so can revert it back to standard prior to collection at no cost.
