    • AK Motorsport developing VW/Audi MQB lightweight front tubular subframe - MKVII Golf, 8V A3, MKIII TT

      AK Motorsport has a variety of lightweight subframe applications. This Volkswagen and AUDI MQB subframe is similar to their Nissan GT-R lightweight front subframe in that it is stronger and longer than the factory steel piece.


      Do not expect huge weight savings but this is definitely something for track guys:

      No pricing information yet but as for applications the 8V Audi A3 models including the RS3 will benefit as well as the MKVII Golf and MKIII TT models.
