Golf 7 wide body, With thick cheeks in the deep
Since 2006, in the tuning scene, Dominic realized the one or the other project. The VW Golf MK1 GTi 16V “Hillclimb Edition” in good memory, about which there is even a well-known scene-Video. However, the fleet can be even more. So a Drift BMW, a Hartmann Golf MK2, and a VW Caddy, the Tuner up-to-date standing. The latest hobby horse of the Screwdriver from the Palatinate region is the youngest child from the ranks of the compact in Wolfsburg: VW Golf 7 wide body!
After 40 years, a little flutter in the width
Now it is forty years since the first Golf saw the light of the world, and a bestseller. The unbroken success is also reflected in the current model, since its introduction, goes like hot cakes and already awarded several times . The typical appearance has not changed in the seventh edition of the VW Golf fundamentals. Concise here, but the angled C-pillars of the MK7. In addition, the wheels at the Front, have moved 43 millimetres further forward, which shortens the front Overhang and the Silhouette is stretched. So the Headlight lens and grille takes a flat in the width. However, the production model is a us tuner, of course, a bit too boring. At least, Dominic, who took his VW Golf is a bit more extensive to the chest.
Brutal day on the Front
Already in the reconstruction phase, the VW Golf made a 7-wide body of Dominic. Here is what is created by ED-Carpe rformance Hand. So it should go for the 7 series Golf, once formidable in the basement. For this purpose, were the fenders, including the rear bumper widened. Furthermore, the Front of the VW sign, the bumper cleared and three GTI front grill inserts made from the series model a gecleanter. An Alternative to the Sheet metal wide body would be a body kit.
Deep thread in the VW Golf 7 wide body
After the sheet metal work were completed, it was installed a H&R coilover “AH Exclusive”type. This means the deep Version. Say the already a depth of 150mm Version of what is in the front and the rear shortened. How much of this reduction is revealed at this point. But Dominic can on the numerous Meetings that he is in the current season, still on the road, of course, like to personally ask.
Vossen Wheels fill the wheel arches of Domincs Golf
The wheel arches of a VW Golf MK7 by Dominic fill black powder coated Vossen Wheels. In the dimensions 9x20Zoll and a press-in depth of 35 is damn greedy in the splayed wheel arches of the wolf burgers. Covered the rims with 225 sticky Black from the house of Nankang. All of this results in the total a impressive look. It is worth mentioning here that the conversion of the brake system on the Audi RS5 – front and rear! This negative acceleration of the 150-HP 2-Liter diesel is doing very well.
Full bonding of many faces
Alone a deep appearance was not enough for the screwdriver, of course. So the VW Golf has been bonded to the 7 wide body once the film professional Black Box judges in Austria. About the complete vehicle, all sponsors and partners are now. The eye-catching wrap in light grey and dark grey gives the car so many different faces.

The finest Alcantara lifts the interior
So in the passenger compartment of the VW Golf 7 Dominic left Hand and for the eye and the ear. So A-, B – and C-pillars of the Volkswagen, including the sky, were bathed in black Alcantara and white stitching sold. The original VW Radio with Navi Plus now controls about three digital power amps, the speakers and Subwoofer in the interior of the Gulf.
Autotuning.de wish Dominic a lot of fun with this little gem. We are already looking forward to the next project. That will probably not have to wait long!
