We’ve said it before and we’ll no doubt say it again, but the Germans build amazing cars. Fact. Even from a car manufacturer standpoint, the Germans pretty much have things sewn up, let alone their modified scene!
Now, we’re not about to go all fan-boy on you guys, but you have to admit that the Germans really do have a knack of doing things right. Aside *ahem* from the emissions scandal, which of course as we all know wasn’t exclusively just a Volkswagen issue, German Engineering has become synonymous with quality, and this is reflected in their modified car scene, too. Yes, there are always exceptions to the rule, but in general, the Germans have good form when it comes to all things automotive and we’ve seen some incredible cars (both stock and modified) come out of Germany over the years.
With this in mind, it’s probably fair to assume that a modified car show in Germany will have some nice cars on display, which is why we sent our man on the ground, Marcel Waldhauser along to check out the recent Low Dub event by Team Eddy, held in the town of Ronneburg, Germany.
This event is known locally for high quality cars. Set in the amazing gardens, this event provides a hugely chilled space and atmosphere for people with modified cars to hang out. The Team Eddy Low Dub event actually starts on the Friday night with an opening party, leaving many with sore heads on the Saturday morning ahead of the main event day. The combination of great surroundings, music and good food makes this event a welcome addition to the show calendar in Germany. The quality of cars was high and it was so nice to see the cars spread out and relaxed, making for perfect photo opportunities, helped in a big way by the phenomenal weather.
It’s no surprise that the Germans stay pretty damn loyal to their domestic brands when it comes to modifying cars. It was par for the course that being a German car event in Germany, is was always going to have plenty of classic Volkswagens and modern Audis in attendance.
All modified to a high standard, the Team Eddy event had something for everyone, if you like German cars, that is. See if you can spot the Mk5 Harlequin, now that’s a different take on a “modern” VW and a shows a sense of humour, and we can’t help but admire this approach.
You might also spot a few rarer sights choices dotted around in our coverage, it’s nice to know there are still people going against the grain in the car scene and representing the “non-VAG” community at VW events.

For now, let’s take a stroll around at the Low Dub Team Eddy event, we can almost feel the sunshine on our skin from here!
