      Yeah... I hope this was sarcasm.

      Reflex Silver replaced Silver Arrow for the Jetta pretty early on. Silver Arrow was less bright... almost like it had a tinge of something else in it. Like a...

      Rare MkIV Colors

      I was trying to prove to someone that the MkIV Jetta was available in Cosmic Green at first, but then I ended up on a wild goose chase on Google Images looking for pics of other rare colors.

      I'm...

      I know this is an OLD thread, but the color is not Wheat Beige; that color didn't come out until 2004. And Mojave Beige was only available on Jetta wagons produced in Germany (or Golfs).

      Thanks to everyone for offering up their rides. The craziest thing happened... the guy who owns my old car offered to sell it back to me. He wants a TDI instead of a VR6. Looks like I'll have my old...

      I'm less concerned about their labor costs and more concerned about whether or not they'd even do it. I just got a 0% credit card for the heck of it. I have no issue putting the repair on there, but...

      Someone in the forums may have posted that, but I don't think anything official has been released though. There have been zero VWoA press releases mentioning the GLI. And in fact, the recent press...

      Backup Camera

      Has anyone ever asked the dealership if they'd install a backup camera on a car with a Premium VIII head unit? Long story short, before people yell at me to do it myself, I have a relatively new...

      I hate to criticize because everyone has his/her own opinions, but if I were buying the car from you, I'd immediately:

      -The roof things
      -The front bumper Wolfsburg stickers
      -The rear...

      Warning... not sure when/if the 2015 GLI will come out, if you're wanting to buy new. We've seen pics of the '15 Jetta refreshed that's due in show rooms any day, but no one has heard a peep or seen...

      I would report them if it's definitely your car.

      I do want to mention that Carfax doesn't tell you everything... my parents' old '85 Jetta was totaled in 1997, but the insurance company sold it,...

      Congrats on the car! There weren't many '14 GLIs made before VW switched over to all Edition 30 cars, so in a way, your car is a little rare (for its year, anyways). And yes, you have the new gen 3...

      Very nice :thumbup:

      I'm super-fond of VW's "retro" colors... Platinum Gray (MkIV), Reflex Silver (MkIV), Tornado Red (MkII), etc. I think Cool White (which recently replaced Candy White) may have...

      That sounds terrible. I'd drive them and reproduce it.

      Does the car not bump or vibrate any? To me, it almost sounds like there could be damage to the axle, but it's super hard to tell from the...

      Yeah, I think VW stopped the removable door skin after MkV. It was supposed to be easier/cheaper to perform maintenance like this, but the panels were apparently a b**** to line up correctly....

      MkVI is awesome. Any news though about that software update for A/Cs that cut off? My '14 GLI does not have this problem, but my dad's '13 TDI with manual A/C does. I really think they're programmed...

      Thanks for the reply. I'm unfortunately looking for something a bit more mechanically stock. Nice price though! It will make someone a fun car.

      We have NO idea if the GLI is receiving the facelift or will even be available in 2015. No pictures have shown up, so there will at least be a 6-month delay until the '15 GLI reappears. Sometimes VW...
