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..

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.
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.
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.
my wheels just came in!
and i'm thinking about painting my front grill white and paint the "stripes" and side grill black. any opinions?
going on this thing..
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.
Bunch of stuff.
