VW Days show is a fantastic event hosted by Club Golf IDF in France. Being a European show, it has a great laid back atmosphere which gives an opportunity to see some of the best cars from all of Europe. The website lists ‘party time’ as being one of the show features so naturally we had to check it out!
Our chosen weapon for the short trip from England to France was Mark Riccioni’s MK7 Golf R, fresh from it’s debut at Players Classic show and piloted by the guys at RIVVA Design. Also in the convoy was Jaymac with his W123 coupe, also on Air Lift Performance suspension.
The pair tackled the troublesome Eurotunnel on ramps and train carriages with ease thanks to Air Lift Performance 3P management, giving that quick adjustability with a button push.
Arriving at the grounds of the event the day before the show, allows you to chat to the owners as people prepare for the evening entertainment. There is a campsite at the event, but lots of people also take advantage of the numerous local hotels too.
One of our favourite builds from the show was Illce’s awesome pillar-less Mercedes coupe. Sitting on Air Lift Performance 3P and timeless BBS RS wheels it’s a reminder that sometimes less is more.
On the other hand, more can also be more as this Trust liveried MK5 shows…
Also, having made the trip from the UK, the striking graphics and BBS Motorsport wheels allude to a powerful package under the bonnet.
Europe does things a little differently when it comes to modifying, and their level of detail is second to none. Take this MK3 cabriolet for example. Initially it looks like quite a simple build but the theme running through the car and attention to the finer details was pretty refreshing.
Also, sporting Air Lift Performance air ride the owner sourced a period correct BBS steering wheel to compliment the refinished BBS RF wheels, the package is topped off with those color matched ‘fishnet’ Recaro seats.
Potentially the most imposing presence at the show, the completely blacked out Audi RS3 is lowered over fifteen52 348 split rims on Air Lift Performance suspension; it looked fast even while sitting still.
It seems there isn’t a car out there that doesn’t need a ground scraping stance, front a 986 Boxster, an Audi TTS, Mercedes 114 and even a Porsche 997.
