      Good god, man. From one designer to another, nice job. Wow.

      So, your suspension and fogs... Do tell.

      Yes, I had my GT grille, splitter, mirror caps, and votex rear diffuser painted a pearl gunmetal. Also, I’m tinted 20% all around.

      The tail lights kill these cars every NEW VAG has 4 part tail lights then they do this and give it TINY lights and they wrap around the car to much as well.
      4 Piece tails










      Makes me wonder who designed the Jetta Wagon little things kill a car those tails KILL it.

      Yeah, I guess I don't obsess over something like taillight construction. Weird.

      and thanks for finding those dude! ive been lookin for colormatched reflectors for a while

      No problem. I was looking too and when I found the front reflectors painted at ESE I inquired about the rear. They asked me to get the part number for them, which I did, and the rest is history.

      Hopefully they get enough sales to make it worth their while to carry them!

      BTW, Thanks Dave @ ESE

      Those are Brembos? They look kinds small for a Brembo kit, I thought it was a R32 kit with some different rotors...

      Sportec, thats where I've seen those before. Are they custom painted or something?

      It was from the SEMA show, so I'm sure everything was custom painted. The press release said they were Brembos.

      haha.. some of both, I think
      note that this was a vw show, and I was in the novice class. I was far more consistent and pretty quick compared to most of the other novice drivers, but not really near the top novice drivers, and no where near the advanced drivers

      What front bumper is that? Me likey Nevermind...found it. Thunderbunny is sweet but I don't think I'll be going for a $1,800 bumper.

      If it's cheaper than the Osir CF grill I may go that route.

      It's the Votex ThunderBunny bumper. They come prepainted. They retail for around $1600ish pre-painted. $1700ish for one with fog lights.

      Actually had one JSW that was being delivered to a customer that had the rear fog light built into the original taillight. But unfortunately hadn't been already wired and programmed for it. But it was still cool to see.

      Not sure but the appeal to me is lost. I found that the rear fog on VW's only lights on the driver side of the rear. My BMW lights up on both tails which I like more.

      The one side just doesn't do it for me. I don't think I'll be wasting any money or effort especially if euro tails are necessary.

      Does anyone know if the ECS city light conversion kit will work with the 2009 JSW?

      http://www.ecstuning.com/Volks...51131/

      Looking at my car... it doesn't appear that this lower strip lights up. I don't know if I'm missing something or if the pictures misrepresent the product.

      I believe the answer is no. The 'city' lights on the halogen headlamps are in the headlamps themselves. I bought some flea-bay LEDs with this in mind, only to realize the lights are plainly visible in the reflector domes.

      I may install them anyway, will be interesting to see how bad they look.
