H&R Springs Volkswagen Golf R

The wonderful project builders at H&R have once again started another great Volkswagen project! Follow along as the artisans at H&R work their magic on the awesome Golf R.

Starting with a 2013 carbon grey metallic Golf R, 4 door, H&R installed a Street Performance Tuner Coil Over suspension and the H&R 26mm rear Sport Sway Bar. Tires and wheels are upgraded with BBS Super RS wheels in silver wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Silver tires.

The special H&R Street Performance Tuner Coil Over with lightweight aluminum front struts and rear shocks keeps unsprung weight down providing precise suspension performance for this nimble chassis. The H&R Coil Over’s are set at a lowering height of 1.25” front and 1.55” rear for the perfect European stance! The addition of the H&R 26mm Sport Sway bar adds awesome turn-in. H&R suspension components enhance the look of the Golf R and improves performance equaling more smiles per mile!

The classic BBS Super RS wheels are extremely popular with Volkswagen enthusiasts and a natural addition to the Golf R project. The new Pirelli P Zero Silver tires are mounted on the 19” silver BBS wheels and are a perfect complement to the carbon grey Golf R. The huge Golf R brakes have been augmented with Baer DecelaRotors drilled and slotted, contributing to the car’s all-business appearance, and provides enhanced braking capacity as well as cooler operation. The brand new Phantom series G-Stop brakeline kits are special black poly-coated stainless steel brakelines from Goodridge. These provide a more responsive and firm brake pedal feel. Special European parts from ECS Tuning include original Golf R LED taillights with a rear fog light and factory reverse camera. The European LED taillights are a must have addition and the reverse gear activated back up camera is hidden in the rear automatic tilt VW emblem lending to 007 coolness!
