      Hey man, foglights are cool.



      Seriously though, foglights >> LED city lights every day of the week. In case anyone was curious.

      And I'm with you on the subject.

      you guys south of the border have SO MANY GOOD BEERS...yes, I am yelling.

      and in NY state (and elsewhere like Hawaii) you have growler refill stations (yes, I am crying now).

      I recently left my Subaru at a dealership and drove away in this sportwagen. My only regret is not doing it sooner. Not sure about any mods to come, after lurking on here a bit I'm leaning towards covering the chrome trim in vinyl. Cheers

      agreed..

      I wish the output was a bit better, and that the pattern spread out to the side more, but I love how the oem mk5 projectors look..

      the above is the ziza yellow bulbs (my last set lasted nearly 1.5 years.. while the two sets of Hella yellow bulbs I tried lasted only three months each) with clear lenses. The yellow film will just limit overall output.. which is already limited by using yellow light.

      Nice! I almost went with a 2 door Golf but chose the Sportwagen bc of its size.

      Fun fact: the 2-door golf and JSW have the same wheelbase.

      We had my cousins 2-door GTI and my JSW parked side-by-side in the driveway not long ago and it took a tape measure for my father to believe it. It is deceptive.



      A lot more overhang and more trunk space though. Also I love the fact that the floor is flat front to back when you put the back seats down.

      it's all the same PQ35/mk5 chassis

      the mk5 jetta sedan and mk5/mk6 wagon all have the same wheel base, total length, and nearly the same weight. The golf/gti just has very little behind the rear wheels. VW has built jettas and golfs like this since the beginniing.

      There's a school of thought that the jetta is a better handling car, because the weight is better balanced.

      I should have specified by size I meant cargo capacity. Although I did not know about the wheel base.

      AFAIK, there used to be variance in the wheelbase, even within the same platform. Back in the days where there were 2-door Jettas. But I could be wrong.

      What I was getting at was that everyone seems to think that the 2-door GTIs are so much more 'sporty' than the JSW because the wheelbase must be shorter, or something... right?

      And of course by 'everyone', I mean those punk whipper snappers that call their GTI's "sports cars". I keep telling them to get the eff off my lawn too.

      Never mind, saw the post by VMR...Sunken Treasure color is awesome. Wonder if my local powder coated can do that color. Looks really good.

      Has there been any news of MY13 changes?

      Only real thing I am hoping for are xenons. I'm hoping they are a line item and not part of a package as I really want a basic JSW manual.

      A friend of mine has a Jetta sedan in the same color with wolfsburg grills on it. Looks awesome IMHO. I think the white would look good too, I'm personally considering doing my cross bars in white vinyl.

      are you going to run like 2 wheels on one side and then i guess the other type on the other side? or like you picking one or the other to run all around?
      color looks sick though on the wheels and should be legit on the blue jsw.
      Bunch of stuff.

      xenons are not going to happen in the US. If you want OEM xenons they're not difficult to install.. just plan on spending an extra $2k or so
