Long-time Ford tuner teams up with Fifteen52 to launch M52 brand, offering Mountune service for VW Group car owners
13 May 2019

Mountune, a performance upgrade company traditionally specialising in Fords, is expanding its operation by launching a new brand dedicated to tuning Volkswagen Group vehicles. 

Called M52, the new aftermarket brand is formed in collaboration with alloy wheel maker Fifteen52. Mountune claims it “will offer VW enthusiasts the same level of service, car and performance that Mountune’s customers have enjoyed for over a decade”. 

M52 will first offer a number of upgrade parts and packages for the Mk7/7.5 Golf GTI and Golf R models. These include a stage 1 ECU retune and induction system upgrade, with more hardware and software upgrades to be offered throughout 2019. Customers with DSG gearboxes are also offered a free transmission calibration to provide quicker changes and better low-speed response. 

Mountune, based in Brentwood, Essex, just down the road from Ford UK’s headquarters, is well known for being the only company to offer manufacturer-approved modifications to Fords without voiding the warranty.

Is Autocar Mountune's PR? This is an advertisement. Like most of the articles on JLR, have to say.

Seems to me you don't know the difference between PR and advertising.
