In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe players can get Gold Kart Parts for each of their vehicles. In this guide, we’ve compiled a list of every Gold Part there is to find in the game, and how exactly you can unlock them. 

The Booster Course Pass DLC pack has once again reignited the hype for Mario Kart 8 by injecting dozens of classic tracks into the Nintendo Switch port. As players hit the courses, they’ll slowly start to unlock vehicle customization options.

These come in the form of different style gliders, tires, and car bodies, each having their influence on the overall stats that your vehicle takes with it in a race.

The Gold Tires can then be obtained in Time Trail mode after beating every Staff Ghost at 150cc. Finally, the Gold Glider can be unlocked by simply collecting 10,000 total gold coins across all your races.
