VAG UK offered the BBS ‘Aerodynamik’ body kit as an option for the Mk2 Scirocco, prior to the Zender body kit becoming standard fitment across the Scirocco range. It comprised front and rear spoilers, wheel arch extensions and side skirts. Unlike most of the more garish body kits that were the trend in the 80s, the BBS kit still looks good today. BBS RA alloy wheels were a must to compliment the look of the car.
