Running Rabbit

 

The VW MK5 scene is moving toward a new movement that revolves around bags and stance. Mitun Patel’s 08 Rabbit got a whole lot of that and more!Getting tired of hearing his passenger side drive shaft hitting his subframe when he was rolling static, Mitun bagged and notched his whip to wave goodbye to this annoying situation forever.

For Mitun’s, his factory Candy White Rabbit turned into a whole different ball game after he transformed it into a Mark 5 GTI with an .:R touch. Unlike traditional .:R bumpers that have the exhaust cut outs beneath the license plate, middle exhaust cutouts were plastic welded into place shaved down to hide a Magnaflow cat back exhaust, a sleek touch that scored him some points for uniqueness right there.A GTI front bumper and headlights, Euro tails, painted lowers and Votex front lip came in to give the final touches and complete this bad bunny’s look. It didn’t stop with the exterior as the interior also got an overhaul with a complete leather interior swap including a GTI steering wheel.Ain’t nothing less then a set of custom painted and staggered BBS RS rollers.  Specifically they’re 17×8.5 Fronts(205/40/17) and 17×10 Rears (205/45/17).  Note that the front shield is color matched to the wheels. Something about the textured side moldings just blending so well with the rest makes it even better.

Some other little mods and details makes this car another sick bagged MK5 in our community.

Last but not least, the Bag set up:

  • Air Lift Slam XL front bags
  • Universal Air rear bags
  • Dual ViAir 480C compressors
  • Easy Street 2-way 3/8″ manifold
  • Easy Street auto pilot system
  • 5 gallon tank
