JE Design: so many ways to renew
Your love affaire with your own car

JE Design selection of tuning and design accessories.

APN,
15 December 2008.

A selection of tuning possibilities can add some colours in these times. Not because new model launches will suddenly vanish (launches have always  more or less adapted to the demand fluctuations), but because tuning has always been a "modular" proposal.

Tuning does offer solutions to individualise new cars as much as it allows owners of recent or less recent vehicles to renew their "love affaire" with their horsepowered mistresses. In other words, no matter how "beautiful" they are, with time, our cars become gradually transportation means. Tuning brings them back to "cars" status.

Rather than presenting separate tuning proposals on their own, what if we go for a combined selection?

Porsche Cayenne - To warm up, we start from the JE Design new accessory programme for the Porsche Cayenne GTS, with the aerodynamics kit, exclusive 22-inch light alloy rims and LED daylight running lights.

JE Design has been also known as one of the major refiners for Spanish SEAT brand (part of the Volkswagen group). Gradually, the programme has been extended for large SUVs from the German group.

Hence, for the platform brother of both VW Touareg and Audi Q7, JE Design developed its extensive programme for the Porsche Cayenne GTS, the Cayenne Turbo and the Cayenne Turbo S.

Front and rear skirt extensions made of ABS.

Body styling - The styling programme for the current Cayenne models includes a front and rear skirt extensions made of ABS, a material known from the original equipment manufacturer. By fitting it to the original attachment points, the makeover is accomplished quickly and safely.

Both aerodynamic and pedestrian protection requirements have been taken into account.

An additional safety element comes from the integrated LED (light emitting diodes) daylight running lights. This is the first time that they are offered in the JE Design makeover kit for the Cayenne.

Oval shaped double end around the stainless steel exhaust pipes.

The kit is completed with side skirts which can be optionally ordered with LED lights in the door sill protectors. The rear appearance is dominated by oval shaped double end around the stainless steel exhaust pipes.

Body agility - To boost agility further, the tuning experts from Leingarten near Heilbronn in Germany lowered the body by approx. 35 mm with an electronic lowering module, getting therefore a lower centre of gravity.

JE Design also tunes conventional running gears. A stainless steel coilover kit with an integrated rebound range gives a lowering scale of 30 to 70 mm, with a sportive road performance to match the outer look. Alternatively, JE Design offers a set of lowering springs.

Elegantly massive five spoke design, in 10x22'' size.

Wheels - The brawny look of the refined Cayenne is enhanced by wheels specifically developed for automobile heavy-weights, with an elegantly massive five spoke design, in the impressive size of 10x22'' ET 55 (bolt circle 5x130).

JE Design deliver the one-piece cast wheel in the version “shadow silver / polished front“, in “matt black / polished front”, in “graphite silver glossy / polished horn“ and in “graphite matt silver / polished horn“. They also delivers entire wheel sets for the SUV Select wheel with its 295/30 R22 XL tyres.

Market-specific prices, shipping costs and other information - or inquiries - about the full tuning range for the Volkswagen group and Porsche cars, can be obtained from the JE Design website.

JE Design kits for the SEAT Ibiza 3- and 5-door versions.

Both Ibiza 5-door and Sportsoupe have their own programmes.

Seat Ibiza - On a different level, JE Design launched recently also its new tuning programme for the SEAT Ibiza, both the five-door and brand new SportCoupé.

The new tuning programme includes a styling kit with lowered suspension, multispoke wheel set in 17” or 18”, wing doors, coil-over suspensionm up to an increase in diesel performance.

Just after JE Design put the finishing touches on the new Seat Ibiza 5-door, the tuning specialist came up with a specific formula for the new 3-door Seat Ibiza SportCoupé.

Rear stainless steel, centre-mounted trapezoidal tailpipe.

Body accessories - Like the 5-door version, the 3-door one has its own programme. Here also, JE Design delivers its components in a high grade ABS and all of the parts are custom-fit by CNC (computer numerical control) machines.

The kit includes a front spoiler, a sports radiator grill, headlight eyebrows for a “mean look”, side skirts that make for a powerful profile, a roof edge spoiler and a rear apron attachment with a carbon look that makes for a visual balance with the other parts. All are available for the practical 5-door Ibiza as well as the 3-door Ibiza SC.

The 5-door model (red Ibiza in the opposite photos) also comes with LSD wing door fittings to open the front doors upwards. The rear features a centre-mounted trapezoidal tailpipe made of stainless steel. The roof and parts of the front end are covered with matt black acrylic sheets with a “Bocanegra look”.

The way JE Design prefer the Ibiza SC.

For a good combination with the original shock absorbers, the low sports suspension springs offer more agility, making the new Ibiza 35 mm lower (available for 3- and 5-door models; used on the blue Ibiza Sports Coupé in opposite photos). This suspension system also improves the appearance.

For an even sportier application, the KW coil-over suspension made of stainless steel (used in the red Ibiza 5-door) can lower it up to 65 mm.

Part of its Ibiza programme, JE Design offers the sporty “Multispoke” wheel sets in either 7”x17” ET 35 or 7.5”x18” ET 35 with tyres 215/40 R17 or 215/35 R 18. The other choice is between "shadow silver" or “black matt / lip silver” finish.

For the engine, a performance enhancement for the 1.9 TDI (130 hp) allows the hot Spaniard to reach 198 km/h (series: 186 km/h) and to accelerate in 10.0 seconds (series: 11.1 sec.) from 0 to 100 km/h. In addition, the drive is improved at low and middle rpm ranges through increased torque.

JE Design tuning kits for the SEAT Leon: front view.

Carbon foil in various colours instead of a new car paint.

Seat Leon - JE Design enlarges its extensive programme also for the current Leon. Apart from already known changes for aerodynamics, the motor and wheels, the tuning expert now offers a carbon foil in various colours to serve as an alternative to applying a new car paint. In addition, safety-enhancing LED daylight running lights can be added.

The core modification is the performance enhancement of the 2,0 TDI motor. It boosts power from the standard 103 kW (140 hp) to 130 kW (176 hp). The torque increases by 85 Nm to 405 Nm.

The changes at the motor management enhance performance: 214 km/h top speed (serial model: 205 km/h) and the car propels from 0 to 100 in 8.3 seconds (serial model 9.3).

The performance enhancement comes with a part certificate by the German Technical Control Board (TUV), while the engine continues to meet the emissions inspection regulations. The price includes a one-year warranty applicable to the engine, drive train and gearbox. The warranty can be prolonged at extra charge for another year. A performance enhancement for the 2,0 TFSI with 147 kW / 200 hp is also available.

JE Design tuning kits for the SEAT Leon: back/side view.

New skirt with gaps for a stainless steel four-pipe silencer.

JE Design headlights masks and a sportive front spoiler give the Seat Leon an even more racing expression.

The rear boasts with a new skirt attachment which already comes with gaps for a stainless steel four-pipe silencer by JE Design. The end pipes measure 90mm and are made of chromed stainless steel.

JE Design enhances the side face with a side sill set. The entire aerodynamic part are also available as complete kit. Also, JE Design offers the front grill for 109 € which confers additional aggressiveness to the Leon.

JE Design tuning kits for the SEAT Leon: LED and headlight view.

LED daytime running light with air inlet plate in carbon-look.

The latest highlight is the LED daytime running light (opposite photo) which is fitted to the front with an air inlet plate in carbon-look. This LED daytime running light fulfils two functions at the same time. When the dimmed headlights are on, the LEDs are dimmed to the parking lights mode (position light) which renders an nice appearance at night time. When the dimmed lights are turned off, the LEDs shine brighter than in the parking light mode and increase road safety due to a better visibility during daytime.

As “car paint”, JE Design decided to apply an entire car film with CFC foil in 3D carbon-look. This innovative foil bears a strong resemblance to carbon and gives the Leon a semi gloss shine. The foil can be ordered in various colours, providing coloured contrasts, such as black/white. If desired, the car can only be partially equipped with car film.

The customer can choose from five wheel sets. The highlight of the range measuring 17, 18 and 19 inches is the complete wheel “Multispoke“ set in matt black measuring 8,0 x 19 ET 45 with 225/35 R 19 Y wheels.

The suspension programme culminates in a coil-over which changes the ground clearance of the Leon between 35-65 mm. Alternatively the refining specialist offers a more sportive road performance with sport springs. If desired, a 4-piston sport brake (330 x 28 mm) at the front axle provides a constantly effective deceleration from high speeds.

VW Scirocco - In another proof of prompt response to novelties, JE Design can already deliver an entire sport programme for the new Volkswagen Scirocco.

The Scirocco kit (919€) includes a front spoiler with a centre spoiler sword in carbon look. The profile is enhanced by side skirts with air inlets and a rear spoiler extension which matches the other components and is also available in carbon-look. Makeover kits for crash-tested gull-wing doors can be ordered as well, for 1,549 €.

The end muffler which is made of stainless steel and comes with two centrally positioned oval end pipes (899€) renders an earthy sound. It is delivered with an EU operating license. Also available is a half system with 70 mm pipe diameter and increased by 11 hp.

Lowering springs by JE Design which have been especially developed for the VW Scirocco (219€) lower the car's centre of gravity by 30 mm and are combined with serial shock absorbers. The sport programme offers the elegant wheel design “multispoke”, measuring 8x19 inches with 235/35 R19 tyres in “shadow silver“ (2,810€), “matt black / silver rim bead“ (2,930 €) or in “white pearl / polished front” (2,930€).

Under the bonnet, JE Design boosts the Scirocco with a performance kit (1,249€), increasing the strength of the 2.0 TFSI version to 180 KW / 244 hp at 6,000 rpm.

The torque rises from 280 to 350 Nm (at 3,350 rpm). Zero to 100 is reduced to 6.6 seconds, 0.6 seconds faster than its serial counterpart.

Maximum speed rises by 7km/h to 242 km/h.  The performance kit comes standard with a one-year warranty and fitting costs.
