Todd Nakajima’s VW Golf Sportwagen Mk7 breaks necks everywhere it goes, including ours when it rolled up to our fifteen52 x ModBargains meet back on March 12th. Rolling super low on Air-Lift Air Suspension, this is one Golf that stands out in a crowd. Add in some Ken Block Hoonicorn style from fifteen52 and you’ve got a recipe for success. The stock Golf VII wheels are nothing to write home about, which is what makes the outrageous style of the fifteen52 Tarmac R43  such a win.VW_Golf_Sportwagen_Fifteen52_Tarmac_R43_Airlift (1)fifteen52 Tarmac R43 Graphite 19×8.5 ET45 on Air-Lift Air Suspension

With an inverse of the classic 5-spoke design, the R43 feels like a wheel all its own.

The long body of the Golf Sportwagen works brilliantly when slammed, giving the TDI some much needed character.

The bold lines of the R43 work really well with the Golf.

While Todd hasn’t done much to the car besides the wheels and air suspension yet, more is definitely to come for this TDI.VW_Golf_Sportwagen_Fifteen52_Tarmac_R43_Airlift (11)
