An exhaust exhaust system with end tips matching the rear apron is gettable as
well as larger wheels. Two designs, naming AR and BR are available to round off

The 122 hp 1.4 TSI model can be pushed to 160 hp. On the other hand, Volkswagen
are offering a 1.4l generating 160hp as standard. But this one can be upgraded
to 210hp by Abt. For the the 210 hp 2.0 TSI motor an extra of 30hp will be
offered. Diesel Golf drivers can get the same extra power, which makes the 2.0
TDI model 170hp strong.
