Hatchback VW Golf 8 gets an aggressive look from JMS studio

JMS tuning studio presented its version of the eighth generation Volkswagen Golf German hatchback. The tuning kit will go on sale in September this year.

Volkswagen Golf is one of the most popular cars among tuners, so it is not surprising that the eighth generation models are actively interested in various tuning studios. Golf is far from the most exciting car in the compact segment when it comes to the design of its exterior, so some people seek to significantly improve the appearance of this family car.

 We have already seen the Golf 8 performed by First Edition on 20-inch wheels from the German tuner ABT – as part of this article, we want to tell you about what the guys from JMS did with the car.

Drawing inspiration from the Volkswagen Golf 8 in the performance of the GTI, the car received some subtle red accents that make the exterior look sportier. This effect was achieved in particular due to the emphasis on the front spoiler, expanding by about three centimeters of the front “apron”. On the sides of the car installed short “skirts” for a more aggressive profile.

 The first thing you notice when you look at the back of the car will be a custom-made diffuser that reminds us of the previous generation Golf GTI TCR. JMS says the diffuser will be sold to customers without cutouts for the exhaust pipes, which may not seem like a good idea. However, the tuner explains that he made this decision, so that buyers can decide whether they want single or double pipes.

 JMS also changed the standard wheels to a 19-inch kit with bright red nuts and 225/35 tires. If you’re wondering why custom-made alloy wheels look like they fit poorly into the wheel arches, this is because the Golf has a KW spiral suspension to lower ride height to provide a lower landing.
