Tyler Aul's MK7 GTI goes email@example.com MPH at Waterfest 23!| 07/18/2017
The bar has been risen, again. This past weekend, at Waterfest 23, Tyler Aul, of USP Motorsports, piloted his MK7 GTI into uncharted territory, breaking the 140 MPH barrier at two separate drag strips on the same day. Ultimately, Tyler captured the quarter mile world record for both trap speed and elapsed time, for any MQB platform vehicle anywhere in the world. True to his outspoken nature, he set the record with hundreds of spectators gazing on. It was a sight to be seen as he raced alongside an Alpha 9 GTR, pulling out a better trap and ET to the crowd's delight. Congratulations Tyler!
Tyler's vehicle is a VW MK7 GTI with a 2.0 TSI EA888 Gen 3 engine and DSG Transmission.

APR license plate frames and vanity plates are the perfect addition for any APR tuned vehicle! They are made from sturdy and rust-resistant T304 stainless steel. They are thick enough such they won't flop around like throw-away handouts you find in a typical swag-bag at car shows. They feature a fade and scratch resistant black powder coated finish with laser etching for the APR logo. Anti-vibration backside plate tabs keep it firmly in place. Four slotted install holes give you the perfect fitment with a solid connection to the car. The nice hardware hiders give it a clean finish too, hiding your unsightly plate screws. Fitment is universal. Some have said this product will increase the value of the vehicle, while others have made horsepower gains, but we can't comment on either.
