H&R Suspension‘s motto is “GO WIDE”- and a few days back Richard W’s bone stockĀ 2013 Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk 6 got the full H&R treatment installed at ModAuto with a bit of help from Mod Expert Blake.VW_Golf_GTI_MK_VI_HR_Cup_Kit_Spacers-11One of the first mods most people do to any car and give it a drop – and drop it we did with a full H&R Suspension Touring Cup kit for VW Golf GTI Mk VI, featuring H&R Springs and H&R’s own shocks/struts, which brings down the ride height of the car 1.2in both front and rear, giving the car a healthy drop.
