Straight from RFK’s in-house label, Elegance Wheels, the ‘E 1 Concave split-rim’ wheels feature gold decorative screws that give the impression that these one-piece wheels are actually multi-piece.

Shod with 225/35ZR19 Pirelli P Zero Nero tyres, and manufactured with offsets of ET45 and ET35 on the front and rear axles respectively, these wheels clear the R32 brakes without spacers.

Also suitable for the VW Golf Mk 7 GTI, Seat Leon Cupra and Skoda Octavia RS, Elegance Wheels have a certification that enables them to be easily entered in the registration papers of these models.

RFK Tuning selected the most appropriate coil-over suspension kit for their R32. As a specialist for KW’s subsidiary, ST Suspensions, this turned out to be a set of ST X adjustable coil-overs. Set with a few centimeters lower ride height, this delivers significant visual and handling improvements.

In standard form, the free-breathing 3.2 litre V6 engine of the Golf R32 delivers a strong 250 hp and 320 Nm of torque, accompanied by a rousing soundtrack. RFK Tuning is a distributor for BHP Motorsport, and their software remap increases output to 270 hp and 340 Nm, with sharper throttle response.

After presenting their fine work with this Golf R32 we expect to see more tuned cars from RFK Tuning in the future and expect it to be a cracker just like this Golf, regardless of model, old or new.
