Caractere Unveils Golf V and Audi A3 Styling Program

Belgian tuner, Caractere has released the first photos of their Golf V and Audi A3 styling programs. The photos reveal typical Caractere-styling characterisitcs, with aggressive but clean looks, high-quality PUR polyurethane construction and beautiful fit and finish.

While many Volkswagen enthusiasts have had some reservations about the looks of the new fifth generation Golf, Caractere shows how vastly different the car can look with a few changes. Gaping front intakes integrated into an all-new front bumper replacement and revised meshed front grill highlight front end changes that give the car a far more aggressive look. Side skirts, rear wing spoiler and custom dual exhausts at the rear bring the whole package together.

For the new all-new Audi A3, Caractere has gone their own route giving customers a way to add the look of Audi’s new signature waterfall-look grill recently introduced on the Audi A8L W12. A new mesh front grill, front bumper extension with larger intakes, mesh inserts and blacked-out center section all help to create the waterfall grill motif. Further styling enhancements include side skirts, rear lip spolier, rear valance replacement with cut-outs for a dual tip exhaust system.
