We won’t fault you if you haven’t heard of Low-Car-Scene and Blackbox-Richter. The two German tuners aren’t exactly household names but even with the lack of name recognition, these tuners have prepared a pretty fabulous program for the Volkswagen Golf VII .
That is, if by “fabulous,” you mean it glows in the dark.
Believe it or not, this Volkswagen Golf VII does exactly that: it glows in the dark. On top of that, it’s got a new set of 20-inch wheels that do the same.
These guys might not be as famous as the more heralded tuners out there, but at least for their program on the Golf VII, both Low-Car-Scene and Blackbox-Richter have put new meaning to the word ostentatious.
The program doesn’t appear to have any performance enhancements, which means that the Golf VII will retain its choice of engine options: two petrol - an 85-horsepower 1.2-liter TSI and a 140-horsepower 1.4-liter TSI - and two diesels - a 105-horsepower 1.6-liter unit and a 150-horsepower 2.0-liter unit.

The Body Glows in the Dark!
Thanks to a special white and soft pink phosphor-foil wrap from 3M, Low-Car-Scene and Blackbox-Richter were able to turn the Golf VII’s body into one that glows in the dark, turning the car’s body into a shade of green and black when the lights are turned off. Imagine driving around in the darkness and seeing this car seemingly moving around like a spooky Volkswagen spirit.
The Wheels Glow in the Dark, Too!
Yes, the set of 20-inch wheels, which have been priced at €6,000 ($7,800), also glow in the dark. Plus, it’s matched by a new front bumper that was sourced from a Golf Mk6 R-Line model and a new purple-colored LED lamp that was mounted on the "mudguard of the brake.” Finally, the Golf VII also comes with a RideAir Version 3 air-ride system from Low-Car-Scene, which you can procure for €3,600 (about $4,700).
