The title says it all really – an early-spring-doors Santa Pod show for every VAG; new, old, fast, and seriously showy on big Bentley rims. Even with another VAG show on the same day and nearby – Early Edition – GTI Spring Fest had a very respectable amount of modified metal to enjoy on this sunny, yet windy, Santa Pod Sunday show day. And we had a couple of phat Golf R32s on the Performance Direct show stand, and that’s a massive thank you to Craig (blue R32) and Harvery (silver R32). See their gorgeous Golfs below, and some of our other favourite bits and bobs. Gotta love the VAG scene…

Let’s kick off the report with our Performance Direct show cars for the day. Harvey’s MK5 Golf R32 – on the floor on air!
