While it's still front wheel drive, our MK6 GTI puts down plenty of power and looks good doing it thanks to the many in-house developed upgrades we've added, like our ECS Coilovers, Tekniform Wheels, and engine performance upgrades.

LED lights are a stunning revolution for the world of automotive lighting and it’s easy to see why. LED's are vastly superior to halogen bulbs, as they have a higher light output and are far more efficient. LED's are Light Emitting Diodes, solid state devices which emit light when connected to electrical current. They have no moving parts or wire filaments to burn out. They emit a whiter light, run cooler, and last longer than the incandescent (filament style) bulbs they replace.

Front splitters/lips are an important aerodynamic upgrade that not only change the look of your car, but also helps to create downforce, improving your vehicles overall handling at higher speeds.

Till this day, there are very limited front lip/splitter options available for the E36 BMW enthusiast.

Give your BMW incredible stopping power with BMW Performance calipers from the 135i performance braking package. With Genuine BMW rotors and OE Textar pads. Brake harder with less brake fade with floating euro rotors and 6-piston BMW Performance calipers. Brake bias will not be dramatically affected. For track applications, a more aggressive rear pad is recommended. Most 17” wheels will clear these calipers. The four (4) longer bolts pictured will come attached to the OEM caliper carrier. This carrier must be removed and replaced with the new carrier.
Heat robs performance, which is why modern forced induction platforms use an intercooler to drop the charge air temperatures. However, in upgraded applications, the factory unit just doesn’t cut it. When you’re reaching for more power in your MK5/MK6 FSI or TSI, a bigger intercooler with more cooling ability is an absolute must. We’re proud to introduce our new OE Upgraded Cast Aluminum Intercooler and Silicone Hoses for your MK5/MK6 to drop charge air temps dramatically and increase performance.
Turner's in-house engineering designed a skid plate to protect your oil cooler from these unfortunate situations while maintaining factory aerodynamics and fitment. The idea was to design something much stronger yet that still keeps the weight to a minimum. The Turner skid plate weighs slightly more than the plastic OE piece, making the Turner plate the lightest metal option on the market.
