Three is the perfect number. No wonder that VW has three versions of its compact car champion Golf: the standard Golf, the Golf GTI and the Golf R. And ABT is providing custom-made aftermarket parts for all three 2018 models. With new side skirts and a tailgate add-on, ABT is adding some highlights to the dynamic design of the compact hatchback. The standard Golf also gets an ABT rear wing to visually catch up with its performance brothers. The Golf R does not lack performance but there is always room for a little bit of improvement with a new ABT exhaust system, especially if it comes with 4-inch diameter black chrome tips. In connection with the ABT downpipe with catalytic converter, a 2018 Golf R owner can be delighted with the increase in horsepower and show-off factor.

The 2018 Golf models have plenty of traction with their standard suspension systems, but do they also have plenty of style? With some new suspension springs by ABT the standard Golf gets a lower stance by 1.3 inches, while Golf GTI and Golf R are lower by 0.7 inches at the front and 0.9 inches at the rear. The setting can even be more dynamic with the ABT height adjustable suspension kit that lowers the front axle by 1.5 inches and the rear axle by 1.7 inches. Cutting corners becomes even more fun when additional anti-roll bars are installed.

And since three is the perfect number, ABT is offering three wheel designs for Golf, Golf GTI, and Golf R: ABT DR and ER-C wheels are available in different finishes and in sizes 18, 19 or 20 inches while the more exclusive FR wheel is only available in 20 inch and the color mystic black.

Our Warranty All our ABT parts come with a warranty of 4 years or 100,000 miles. Installing parts like aerodynamics or wheels will not void the factory warranty of the car.
