Back in the early 90's a few close friends with a shared passion for cars decided to create a club so that they could be identified when going to big car shows and cruises. Although some might say that we were the original modded dub club, the actual name Westside-VW came about after another group of good friends from South London (UK) created the South London VW Posse. Most of our members were predominantly from West London (UK) hence the name. Back when the dub scene was in its infancy in the UK, both clubs would cruise together to various events around the UK with a radical selection of Volkswagens (Mk1, Mk2 Golfs and Corrados) including some very early legendary expeditions to European shows like Baarlo in the 90s. The Euro scene was far more extreme but gave us great inspiration to bring the latest ideas from overseas to the UK with our own Westside style.
The club really came into prominence when PVW featured their 1st ever club report on Westside VW, with bios on all the member cars. As the UK\Euro dub scene grew our circle of friends also grew with members joining from Holland and Germany. With the ever increasing network of friends and experts in the modified car scene, our cars were beginning to be recognised as some of the finest VWs to grace the pages of many top publications including PVW, Golf +, Euro tuner, Revs Etc.
20 years on and after being regular visitors to the European scene we now had a fantastic following picking up prizes for some of the best VWs in the world.Westside continues to dominate the UK and European scenes with numerous features and articles in the motoring press and TV to this day.
With multiple cover cars and show winners we decided it was about time to host our own show in the UK, where we could get together all the best modified VWs on the scene. In 2008 we held the first now annual show & shine event in the beautiful surroundings of the Chiltern Hills in West London (UK). This was followed year on year with increasing numbers and is now considered as one of the top VW events in the show calendar.
2016 Westside is proud to announce their 1st USA show on the East Coast of USA (1 hour north of Boston) with a view to bring together dub influences from both sides of the Atlantic. The show will predominantly be a German car show with a touch of American muscle cars and custom bikes.
