Meet Yasheen Singh. Hailing out of Johannesburg South (Lenasia) and takes pride in his appearances and this superhot VW Mk5 GTi is no exception.
Yasheens Tornado Red Gti had all the factory trimmings but that was not enough. He upgraded the software and on the exterior Yasheen took things to a whole new level.
The front bumper is finished with a Vortex Lower lip, DSG Front Vents and smoke headlight covers give it some attitude. Riding on a set of 19″ OEM S55 AMG Alloys and wrapped with in 235-35-19″ Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres. Yasheen lowered it a wee bit with H&R springs and popped in scirocco shocks to give this Gti the ultimate in Stance!
Other mods include a 1pc Forge CAI system, Pioneer DVD Touchscreen player and occasionally you’ll see him sport an ECS Bonnet bra.
Future plans (yes, vw modding has no end:) include upgrading the air intake, lowering the car further, boost gauge and a performance bump with some Revo upgrades mixed in with an Audi S3 inter-cooler and hopefully a K04 Turbo conversion!
