Attention To Detail


There aren’t that many bagged MK5 GTI’s that match a winning exterior and interior that’s good enough quality for Eurotuner. Thankfully Rich’s ride is just that hot!

This bagged beauty is the prime definition of a clean machine.  It’s tucking a set of 18″ Mercedes-Benz Alphard wheels underneath those sexy silver fenders.

A custom molded front Jetta bumper, shaved front and rear emblems, and an OEM Votex kit with deleted exhaust keep Rich’s ride on the drool level of modded GTI’s.

The attention to detail doesn’t end on the outside as stated before, the interior of this ride received the same loving attention with custom red leather wrapped seats, door cards and shifter boot.

Now it’s time for the real heart of the beast, the trunk tank setup!

Dual 3 Gallon Aluminum Tanks sit tucked away in the back and cover up the AZ OBD2 Air Compressor pumping energy into these bottomless pits.

The way Rich is able to drop so low is thanks to a set of Air Lift XL Slam Series front and rear bags and Auto Pilot digital management system.

Rich’s MK5 GTI is nothing short of a labor of passion. The amount of perseverance and hard work poured into this ride shows itself off in the never ending little details that keep popping out every time it’s looked over.  Great job Rich and see you at Eurokracy 2011!  Check out the breakdown and rest of the set shot by Jon Schusteritsch below:

  • 2 Three Gallon Aluminum Tanks custom painted
  • Auto Pilot digital management
  • Air Lift XL Slam front and rear bags
  • AZ OBD2 Air Compressor
  • 3/8″ Air Line with flow controls
  • 3/8″ SMC watertrap
