If you are like us you probably have dreams of owning each example of the VW Golf since the first generation. Well time to make plans on owning a seventh.

Exterior wise a strong shoulder line has been added as well as refined front and rear bumper design treatments. Inside has received the surgeons touch with sculpted seats and dash.

More importantly is the prospect of a base model 1.4L turbocharged engine, but VW has yet to confirm of such an engine in the U.S. Rumors suspect the return of a 1.8T (crossing-fingers).

All we know is we want to get our hands on one to see what kind of tuning potential the Mk7 will posses. We think a competition is in order soon. Stay tuned.

In order to get the full story of Garage Active, and its animated founding father, you would need more than just a single feature. In all honesty, you would probably need something along the lines of the Lord of the Rings sized trilogy, complete with all of the spin-offs, behind-the-scenes extras and perhaps even that

From the Editors of SS: Well, well, well, what do we have here? Our Monday morning became a whole lot more interesting waking up to the announcement of a new V-8 Lexus IS, the IS 500 F Sport Performance – but do not call it an IS F. While it uses the same 2UR-GSE mill

As a color choice, we don’t generally see a lot of turquoise on tuner cars; it seems to be a hue favored more by bejeweled sun-loving grandmas with leathery skin rather than Japanese car fans. But the dazzling sheen on Jimmy Tu’s Chrome Turquoise 2015 Nissan GT-R is kind of mesmerizing and possibly the perfect
