Eibach PRO-KIT

  |   European Car March 2018 New Products Eibach Pro Kit

What you see pictured is Eibach's PRO-KIT for the Audi RS3, S3, and A3, but if you know anything about Eibach you know they make high quality suspension upgrades for just about any vehicle you can imagine. Being that they have over six decades of hands-on experience, development, and testing, as well as race winning results in various forms of motorsport, it's safe to say that they know a thing or two about your car's handling and how to improve upon it. This Audi PRO-KIT features a progressive spring design that makes a huge improvement in handling and overall appearance, and will work perfectly with your car's original dampers. Also included is Eibach's million-mile warranty—what more could you ask for? We know just how good the PRO-KIT is because we just installed one on a GTI last month.

Thermo-Tec: Rogue Line of Basalt Heat Products

  |   European Car March 2018 New Products Thermo Tec Rogue Blanket
  |   European Car March 2018 New Products Thermo Tec Turbo Blanket
  |   European Car March 2018 New Products Thermo Tec Exhaust Wrap

You already know elevated under-hood temps are an engine's enemy, but what you might not know is just how helpful Thermo-Tec and their new Rogue Performance Products can be in helping to fight back. For three decades Thermo-Tec has been the frontrunner in heat issue solutions and their Rogue line might be one of their best offerings yet. You've no doubt seen, heard about, or used Thermo-Tec's exhaust wrap, but now you can pick them up in basalt, under the Rogue line, in carbon fiber or Riccochet Black color options. In addition, the new series also brings complete turbocharger covers to the table, available in the same color options. And what exactly is "basalt?" It's similar to the fiberglass wrap that you've seen in the past, but being that it's a continuous filament created from volcanic rock, the weave will hold its appearance far longer so that the nice look you see pictured won't fade away. The exhaust wraps are available in 1- and 2-inch by 50-foot rolls, while the turbo covers are designed for T3 and T4 turbo setups. Beat the heat with Thermo-tec at

Konig Ampliform Wheel

  |   European Car March 2018 New Products Konig Ampliform Metallic Graphite

  |   European Car March 2018 New Products Konig Ampliform Bronze

Konig recently released its latest wheel design and added to their massive selection, many of which include Volkswagen-friendly styles and fitments. The Ampliform is a mesh-inspired, flow formed wheel available in 17- to 20-inch sizes. What exactly does "flow form" mean? It involves applying pressure to the inner barrel of the wheel while it's spinning, as well as after it's been casted. The result includes aluminum molecules being compressed and helping to provide a stronger, lighter wheel with increased shock resistance and elongation properties. In addition, the Ampliform is easy on the eyes, whether you choose the Dark Metallic Graphite finish or their classic bronze. See sizing info and view the rest of the Konig line-up at

The combination helps to improve balance and overall adjustment and the systems are available in Moton's 2-way Clubsport, 3-way Motorsport, or their flagship, the 4-way Pro Motorsport configuration.
