Jon Scite’s MK6 TDi

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this red MK6 TDi. Just a few months ago, I snapped a shot of it at PTuning for their dyno day.

It’s funny how much can change in just a small amount of time. The results however, are nothing short of amazing.

Jon first purchased the car brand new, three years ago, on this exact day.


Now, vastly different from the car it was, the most obvious change is the aggressive Golf R front bumper, complete with GT Racing splitter.


The front fenders are wider, the rears pulled in order to fit some unique red BBS RSII wheels. Jon admits that not everyone is a fan of the color choice, but that aside, what’s not to like?


Rounding off the exterior is a matte black vinyl roof, Golf R side skirts, GTi Rear Valence and smoked Euro R tails.


On the inside, the car sports 2 Recaro racing seats, mounted on custom fabricated brackets to keep the occupants of the vehicle firmly planted during any bouts of spirited driving.


The rear seats have been removed (because race car?) and extended to the hatch with some solid wood flooring.



Like most people that mod their cars, Jon says he isn’t quite finished and plans for a larger turbo upgrade, which in turn hints at the possibility of a big brake upgrade as well.


We certainly can’t wait to see what changes are around the next corner!
