_Going up.

SUV’s and especially baby-SUV’s better know as crossovers can’t always go off-road for that extra amount of fun. Of course they can, but chance is small that the warranty will cover the outcome.

Like a virgin. Let’s start with saying that we have not against electric cars. Since they remind us of that mixer in the kitchen, and that was a gift from our grandmother sister who was Miss Virgin back in 1928. Or was it Miss Virginia..? Anyway, Volkswagen is selling quite a few of their ID.4 and ID.5’s, and although aftermarket companies didn’t roll up their sleeves for these models too much, there is always the exception. 

Read all about it. And this time that it’s-a-tuff-but-someone-has-to-do-it job was accomplished by V-Dub. They call it the ID. XTREME and it’s nothing more or less than an ID.4 GTX who spend too much time reading 4×4 magazines. This concept was revealed at an ID. Treffen in Locarno and could be a window for VW to bring some of this upgrades and accessories available to customers. 

To convince or not. All-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels and a higher suspension are the technical part of this ID. XTREME. A crash bar, a highly modified front bumper and 50-millimeter wider front fenders should convince you and me that this is a real off-roader. And if the extra LED lightning on the roof won’t convince you, V-Dub also installed a full aluminium underbody cover and a special aluminium guard under the front bumper.  

Heaven. Production of this 388 hp strong ID. XTREME is not going to happen, but that shouldn’t stop you from personalising your own ID. Model. We suggest to start with a nice set of BBS wheels and a lowering kit from on of the brands of the KW automotive Group. If you wanna go low(er), stay with KW, ST or ap. Though in case you want to get closer to heaven, you probably need to check what Reiger Suspension has in store.
