The Awesome GTI Success Story: 95.73% increase in revenue YoY
Meet Awesome GTI
Awesome GTI is a well-known automotive performance parts retailer based in the United Kingdom. They specialize in offering a wide range of products and services for enthusiasts of Volkswagen Group vehicles, including Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, and Skoda.
Awesome GTI has built a strong reputation in the automotive industry for providing high-quality performance parts, accessories, and tuning solutions. They offer a comprehensive catalog of products, including engine upgrades, exhaust systems, suspension components, wheels, brakes, and styling enhancements. These products cater to individuals looking to enhance the performance, handling, and aesthetics of their vehicles.
Originally operating from a Magento storefront, Awesome GTI discovered that their online operation wasn’t as optimized as it could be.
As the number of SKUs increased, maintaining their online system became a distraction from actually managing, marketing, and selling products.
Awesome GTI looked for a website template that is designed and optimized to handle large amounts of traffic and user interactions as well as a solution which can handle a large number of products, so customers can find their best fits in their limited time.

Easy migration from Magento to BigCommerce
“Our entire migration process from Magento to BigCommerce only took a few months. That was great turnaround time for us, because we were still 100% operational during this entire transition process.” - WAYNE AINSWORTH
Since making the switch, we’ve had 1.3 million sessions, 4 million pageviews — and it’s consistently growing.
Our online store’s performance is remarkable: bounce rate is reduced, session duration is up, and daily sessions are increasing. The growth we wanted to see is there.
