For the 2012 Volkswagen Passat, H&R added its famous Street Performance Coil Over suspension for a lower ride height, then bolted on H&R Sway Bars–28 mm front, 24 mm rear for flatter cornering and better steering response. These sway bars are crafted from a special cold formed and heat-treated 50CrV4 steel alloy, and feature forged, seamless bar ends. Each bar is paired with industry-exclusive sway bar bushings made from a unique urethane/Teflon composite that prevents squeaks, yet requires no grease or other maintenance.
Of course, image is as important as performance, so the Passat was fitted with H&R TRAK+ wheel spacers for wider stance, OZ Ultraleggera HLT 20 x 8 -inch wheels and Michelin 245/35ZR20 Pilot Super Sport tires. Added to the exterior was a Volkswagen Accessory body kit and rear spoiler. Sticky Jewel Graphics add a custom touch without breaking the bank. Inside, a set of Volkswagen accessory floor mats compliment the Passat’s high quality interior.
