Refreshing, laid-back, with ample breathtaking sceneries around; it’s a magnificent getaway-spot located miles away from the busy metropolis. Lake W├Ârthersee has always been a true gem for tourists. Plus, when the time is right, the whole place transforms into a hot-spot for automotive tourists. Every year, countless number of …

Powerhouse // Anthony’s GTI MK7 on Revo

Back in the days before fuel injectors, bumping horsepower figures involved some pretty serious physical tweakings to the engine: things like carburetors, spark plugs, and engine internals. Not a simple task, mind you. With all the independent factors that’s essential to the engine’s smooth-running; modding and adjusting them isn’t exactly a child’s play. Today? Thanks to the ever-so-more-complicated designs, things …

Built to Last // Hendranata’s GTI on WatercooledIND

Sharp. Precise. Fierce. Noble. Divine. Blades so sharp that it literally swifts through everything, and looks so artful that it deserves to become the imperial-room centre-piece. The mighty Katana sword. The infamous Japanese curved blade used by samurai for their relentless, skilful, and purposeful doings. Strong, unpredictable and always stunningly detailed, the Katana has often been deemed as one of …

End to an Era // GTI on Work Wheels

Several weeks ago I took the time to meet Winston in the morning and did this little photoshoot for the GTI. Located nearby the ‘famous bridge’, which has undoubtedly become the most famous photo-capture sites of the year. It was a real quick shoot, yet these results by Winston are nothing short of extraordinary. Simply the perfect way to end …

Performance Blueprint // Garrett-swapped GTI on HRE Vintage

Renovating a house is a complicated process. If you think that it is as easy as giving general ideas to contractors and hoping for the best to happen, you’d better think again. There are dimensions, there are styles, there are materials and there are plenty more of everything else. A lot of things can go wrong if done without a …

Bandung Turbo-Frenzy Warriors // Scirocco x GTI

Manic. I’ve been staring in awe, examining the modification specs of these three little hatchbacks inside my mailbox for a full hour. The spec-lists are downright overwhelming. Stage 3+ tunes. Swapped turbochargers. Reinforced footworks. The driving experience must’ve been nothing short of thrilling. As a Volkswagen driver myself, I can’t quite possibly wrap my head around the idea of having …

Nuvolks Surabaya @ Suramadu // Photo Coverage

They say the most influential factor in buying a new car is the chemistry between the car and the buyer. The way the car handles the buyer’s needs and wants. The way it transforms a vehicle into an emotional driving experience. The processes in which it accumulates speed and how it delivers its propelling capabilities. All while looking aesthetically appealing …

Breath Stopper // Hendranata’s GTI MKV on BBS

Before getting to know this most recent fitment-oriented setup, I’d suggest you have a look at his previous article here. With K04 turbo swap in the engine bay, drool-worthy R-seats inside the cabin and the always-classy wheels, his GTI has surely been prepared yet again to impress …

Modestly Astonishing // Team Agentz Nick’s GTI on SSR

Let me start off today’s article with a rather strong perspective towards the local Indonesian car scene: there’re still way too many pretentious people with pretentious car builds out there. Seriously, our car culture should’ve been more matured by now. Stop putting oversized aeros to your underpowered rides (it’ll only slow you down even more, trust me). Stop putting all …

Nuvolks Track Day June 2014 // Photo Coverage

All across the web I’ve encountered plenty of modification styles surrounding the Volkswagen communities. No doubt, these days a lot of the most popular builds out there are the aggressively fitted VWs. From aired out GTI’s to slammed big body Phaetons. These so called ‘people’s cars’ are undeniably gorgeous when lowered on a proper set of wheels. But what’s popular …

Classy Execution // GTI MKV on Volk Rays

The people’s car – the Volkswagen. Founded by Ferdinand Porsche in 1934 to produce affordable and reliable cars for everyone, the brand has now become Europe’s largest automotive producer, which has also ranked third largest in the world (right after Toyota and GM). Unlike the other German companies, for example Mercedes Benz, Audi and BMW, Volkswagen has positioned itself as …

Looks undoubtedly sporty, especially for the 2-door. Highly tunable 2.0 turbocharged engine. Comfortable German interior. All for the price of an entry level C Class. How much more desirable could it be? Meet Benny, …

The Editorial Duo // GTI MKV & MKVI

Behind the site, behind the photo shoots, behind the writings, behind all these hobby/passion jobs we do at HnP, each of our crew members has our own car projects we’re working on. We’ve always loved cars; we continuously admire other people’s builds through our site features. And we’re also dreaming of one day having our own ‘killer’ builds to be …

Nuvolks Morning Run 17 Nov 2013 // Photo Coverage

With meeting point being Panahan Senayan at 5:30AM, the cruise was attended by 20-or-so watercooled Volks and friends. Panahan – Sentul City – VW BSD was the route. The drizzly morning was warmed by plenty of turbo boosts …

Simply ClasSick // Hendra’s K04 GTI on CCW

I used to think that Golf’s are boring and GTI’s are overpriced ($57k over here vs $25k in US). Leave the R alone, $80k for a hatchback was utterly unjustifiable for me. But then one day I got to sit in one of my friend’s GTI; after that one drive behind the wheel of the GTI, my shallow perception was …

Firstar // GTI MK6 on 3SDM

There are currently 327 posted articles in Hawk’n’Poke and yet this is the first time I’ve managed to get my own car featured. The GTI is currently about a year old and it wasn’t until a few weeks before GENESIS that I decided to inject an aggressive fitment into it. When first gotten my hands on the GTI, I’ve never …
