Only in jest. :)

You've only picked up on this 11 months later? ;)

Haha yeah. Been off the forums for a while and back on to investigate whether I wait for Mk8 or go 7.5 in a year’s time.

After a one year sabbatical, I am back.

And kicking off with one of the early Mk8 Golfs with ABT FR-C in 20", mystic black and 235/30 tyres, and ABT springs with around a 25-30mm drop on stock.

That actually doesn’t look too bad. I’m sure we’ll all get used to it.

Mk5 drivers be like.. Mk6 is crap.
Mk6 drivers be like.. Mk7 is crap.
Mk7 drivers be like.. you get the drill.

I came across a picture of the 2013 Golf Vision the other day again - it looked 'futuristic' at the time - and yet you can see the key elements are in the Mk8.

I still don't think a Golf sits well on 20s unless it is slammed, but overall this look an inch down would certainly be pretty slick.

I tend not to post mock-ups, but I'll bend now. This is a styling exercise by German tuner JMS showing off their body work design for the Mk8 with 19" Barracuda Tzunamee EVO wheels - which reminds me of something off a early 2000s Falcodore.

Interesting looking rear diffuser and exhaust tips very Audi RSesque.

May not be that different to the R in the end though - while persisting with the quad pipes the diffuser look is a lot stronger. If it wasn't an RS3 rip I'd actually prefer single 'wheelbarrow' ovals each side..

Likely the first of the dropped Mk8s, from Nullbar. I believe it ran a bit of a 'Frankenstein' set up with FAHRWairk, KW dampers and Air Lift controls. Of more interest is the sweet OZ Superturismo in the Evoluzione finish (red 'centrelock' finish) in 20 x 8.5 ET45.

Another Nullbar based car - these are MB Design wheels, I believe a variation of the VR3.2 (itself a 2 piece version of the VR3) with a custom MB centrelock style cap:

Attention VWOz - this doesn't count as a new colour offering on the Mk8 if it's on the cards.

Wagon Wednesday Mk8 style - admittedly on a sad looking set of small stock wheels. Unfortunately the search for practicality, aka space, has resulted in a more challenging looking design for Mk8, akin to the Mk7 days, unlike the relatively attractive Mk7 effort.

48904

I suspect in a better spec, lower ride and different colour it will still be a decent looking thing.
