    This year’s tuning bash at Lake Wörth once again pulled out all the stops. Golf monster-hps and a small-scale powerhouse made heads turn. The so-called “Gummiplatz” and the Dotz booth, as usual, were the ultimate hotspots at the GTI convention in Reifnitz. 

    GTI Meeting 2017 
    Roughly 150,000 fans of the Wolfsburg car factory flocked to the south of Carinthia to celebrate the creation of the VW Golf, as has been the tradition for 36 years now. It goes without saying that the VW Golf was the headliner at the Dotz booth in Reifnitz: a Golf VII Clubsport on Dotz SP5 dark 8.5x20. With coilovers by Gepfeffert and SRS Tec wings, the Wolfsburger pulls off 265 hps, with overboost briefly even revving up to 290 hps.

    The weather was perfect, the fans moved through the festival grounds in crowds – and towards the Dotz booth.
