Kenwood Beetle in June 2013 PVW magazine

May 23, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Builds, Readers Rides, Special Offers

We’ve seen a lot of Volkswagens running Rota wheels in the past few years, and one of our most-favourite builds is the Kenwood Electronics 2013 VW Beetle. Running our 19×9.5in ET20 (front) and 19×10.5in ET20 (rear) Grid Drifts, this Beetle is stanced to perfection thanks to a full Airlift Performance suspension setup anda full IRS (independant rear suspension) conversion allowing the wheels to camber-in and tuck once lowered. Make sure you grab the June 2013 issue of Performance VW for a full 7-page feature on this super-cool car!
