Tuners at German engineering firm Mcchip-DKR have created a new set of upgrades for the Volkswagen Golf R.  The car comes with new software for the engine control unit that boosts horsepower by almost 17 percent from 270 PS (199 kW / 267 bhp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) to 315 PS (232 kW / 311 bhp) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft).

The engine's maximum torque output has also been substantially increased, from 350 to 440 Nm, a gain of almost 26 percent.  The cost of the engine work-up is €899, and works well with either of the car's gearboxes.

For another €350, the company will tune the suspension, and install lowered H&R springs.  The car's new equipment can be safety tested for an additional €59.  The biggest cost comes from the €3,190 OZ Ultraleggera 8x19-inch wheels.  The blacked-out wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 235/35 performance tires.

To be honest, it does not sound like you are getting too much for nearly €4,500, but there will certainly be some Golf R fans that will jump on this kit.

"The car's new equipment can be safety tested for an additional €59" - shouldn't this be part of the pricing?

I'd keep it standard and so will a lot of Dub fans. Messing around with it will just ruin the cars resale value. It's not like a BMW and you're taking it to Alpina or Hartge now is it?

The rims look great, but 3000 Euros? OEM rims will just have to do.
