    Looks nice, VW quality is great. I have a 99 Jetta and have never had any major issue.
    I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.

    Ooh, aah. Very nice. Have fun with it.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    Very nice. VW's are great machines (as are most products of German engineering).

    Are you going to leave it stock?

    Rims?

    Upgraded air intake?

    Brembo Brake Kit?

    Upgraded Suspension / Springs?

    Vehicle computer?


    I can never leave well enough alone.

    I can't speak highly enough of that Brembo brake kit though, I put their kit on my Lexus and it took almost 70 feet off my 60-to-zero distance. It's impressive stopping power. I got the kit new on eBay for $600-something from a user named BremboAmerica - PM him on eBay and see if he can hook you up

    The vehicle computer is also extremely useful - lets you monitor a ton of sensors you didn't even know you had, see/check/clear ECU codes, monitor gas mileage, distance-to-empty, fuel/air ratio, and a bunch of other fun stuff.

    Enjoy the new car. The "mod-it-out bug" can be just as expensive as the "gun bug", watch out.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Love it, I have an 06 Rabbit two door, that I'm going to have to sell in the next month or two, as I have a baby girl on the way. It'll be sad but worth it. Congrats on the Dub.

    I may chip it and install the smart roof gizmo that lets you drop the top from the key fob, but that's about it.... I'll possibly throw some 18" rims on it, but I'd have a hard time spending that sort of cash without coming home with a new gun
