Small changes make a big difference.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI is under attack from BMW, but no matter what rivals offer, it's a car that has a fervent fanbase of loyalists who will never consider anything else. Tuning the GTI is also a passion for a selection of owners, which is where companies like Maxton Design make their money. If you're into German hot hatches, this is something of a household name and it has once again made its offerings for the latest and greatest from Wolfsburg available early into the car's release. The changes are simple but effective, giving a little bit of love to the car in key areas.
At the front is where you'll see the biggest change, with a new splitter lip running from one end of the bumper to the other. Side skirt extensions are also added, and they're subtle and stylish too. The false rear diffuser at the back of the car has also been enhanced by subtle extensions that give it a bit more presence while also making the car look lower. The last add-on is a roof spoiler extension in the style of the that seen on the BMW M4 CS. Fortunately, each part of this kit is sold separately, so buyers can pick and choose the add-ons they like.
If you do like everything, the full kit will set you back €590, or around $700. However, there are currently some Black Friday deals running on the site, so you can get these items at a reduced rate if you order this weekend. Unfortunately, the lowering kit and those 20-inch BBS CI-R wheels will cost you extra and would have to be supplied by a third party. Still, even without those upgrades, the Maxton kit offers an affordable way to make your new GTI stand out from others you may encounter on the road. Of course, if you want to make sure that your car is truly neck-breaking, there are even more extreme ways of doing so.
