    Weve been building our MK8 GTI since the beginning of December so i figured id write up a build thread on here! Lots to cover! 2022 Pomelo Yellow Autobahn Manual etc... The same car nearly everyone else has. But we were stoked, we had a good 2-3 day head-start on the rest of the US. When we...

    An interesting post from China’s AutoHome surfaced last week, purporting to show the Mk8 Golf sitting in a parking lot. The images show a roughly Golf shaped vehicle with some of the most useless camouflage ever fitted to a test vehicle. Seriously, it’s the Zorro mask of cammo: it covers...

    A new set of emissions testing rules means that the base MkVII Golf GTI will not be back for 2018 in Europe.
