Are you a Volkswagen Golf R owner looking for the best ways to improve your car’s performance? You came to the right place. Here are the six best performance upgrades for 2015 or newer Golf Rs:
1. ECU Upgrade
An ECU upgrade is the best value you can get on a dollar per horsepower gained basis. An ECU upgrade allows you to modify your factory ECU settings to give your engine more power without the need to change any of the hardware on your Golf. You just need to run higher octane gas.
At EuroSport Tuning, we carry two top-of-the-line ECU upgrades made specifically for newer Golf Rs:
2. Cat Back Exhaust System
When you install a cat back exhaust system on your Golf R, you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits:
- Increased horsepower
- More torque
- Throatier sound
- Better fuel economy
- Stylish appearance
What’s not to love about cat back exhaust systems? It’s a great upgrade that won’t break the bank.
3. Air Intake Kit
An upgraded air intake system on your Golf will not only allow for cool and un-restricted airflow into the engine, but also:
- Boost horsepower
- Increase torque
- Improve throttle response
- Make the engine sound better
If you want a high quality air intake kit that’s designed specifically for Golf Rs, look at the 034Motorsport X34 carbon fiber cold air intake system.
4. Camber Mounts
A good set of camber mounts makes a big difference in ride and handling. Aftermarket camber mounts provide a negative camber angle to improve handling, cornering, and steering response.
034Motorsport’s Dynamic+ camber mounts are made of billet aluminum and high-quality rubber inner pucks. They’re designed to provide an additional 1.4 degrees of negative camber at each front wheel. You’ll enjoy a few benefits by having those camber mounts on your Golf, including:
- Enhanced grip while cornering
- Improved handling and steering
- No squeaking sound (caused by stock strut mounts when used with coilovers)
5. Rear Sway Bar
An aftermarket rear sway bar provides reduced body roll, less understeer, and more agility. As a result, you'll feel better balance and handling.
At EuroSport Tuning, we carry a premium rear sway bar for Golf Rs. The 034Motorsport adjustable rear sway bar is made of solid spring steel, making it over 50% stiffer than the stock rear sway bar.
6. Center Console Upgrade
The upgrades aren’t just limited to the engine bay and the chassis. You can upgrade the interior, as well. The best thing you can do to your Golf R’s interior is to replace the locked center console lid with a center console that’s actually usable.
We designed a custom center console storage solution kit to help you make the most out of the center console in your Golf R. It comes with a storage tray that offers an easy way to organize your items.
