    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.
