HERNDON, Virginia , February 17, 2022 (press release) –

  • Oettinger style components for GTI complement latest hot hatch’s sporty character
  • LED dynamic turn signals enhance light signature
  • Dynamic Wheel Center Caps available with model-specific logos

Volkswagen of America, Inc. is pleased to introduce the full line of accessories for the all-new, eighth generation Golf GTI. A perennial favorite of VW enthusiasts, the latest generation GTI benefits from a number of styling options, available now.

“The GTI is our most storied enthusiast vehicle,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing and Strategy at Volkswagen of America. “Its owners have a history of dialing the car in to match their personality and lifestyle, and we are proud to offer a catalog of dynamic options to help them do so.”


In continued collaboration with Oettinger Sports Systems GmbH, customized body elements offered for the new GTI include front and rear lip valances and a roof edge spoiler. All components can be painted and installed by Volkswagen dealerships or independent auto body shops.

Also available to enhance the GTI’s exterior styling and presence are LED Dynamic Turn Signals by Osram. Darkened when not in use, these turn signals move in a sequential fluid motion, from the inner mirror housing to the outside edge. No special coding is necessary, and the signals can also be installed by any Volkswagen dealership.

To personalize the GTI’s and Golf R’s exterior styling further, Dynamic Wheel Center Caps with model-specific logos will become available in early 2022. The dynamic center cap design allows the GTI or R logo to self-level and stay upright while the vehicle’s wheels and tires are in motion.

In addition to the styling elements, there is a full suite of accessories Volkswagen offers for Golf GTI and R models that bolster convenience and vehicle protection. Rubber MuddyBuddy® and carpeted Monster Mats® help protect the floors, while Bumperdillo® (available late spring 2022 guards the rear bumper against damage during the loading and unloading of cargo. Other options include a frameless, auto dimming rearview mirror compatible with HomeLink Connect®.
