      seems like it... probably to commemorate their running in the 24 hrs at nordschleife.

      and GLI/GTI brakes
      and GLI/GTI suspension
      and Interlagos interior
      I see a lot more than just a body kit and stickers (though the kit is nice as well).

      Seems like a Jetta "GTD" kind of...
      but.. I still like the one they showed at LA two years ago that never appeared I think it was called TDI Sport:

      It was a GLI with the TDI motor and externally just looked like a sleeper Jetta.

      I think it looks cool, but really wish VW could have seen to fit the 170hp version of the engine as opposed to the 140hp version.

      agreed they should put the motor that they used in the TDI cup cars... 170 hp and like 223lbs. if i'm not mistaking.
      Also they should keep the Audi R8 breaking system on it to!!!
      it would be SICK!!!!!!

      Looks really nice. Haven't driven the Jetta TDI yet so I can't comment on lack of engine mods/power in this car. Seems like it could be a pretty good deal anyway.

      Ditto... I would have a hard time *not* buying this if VW had decided on the 170HP TDI engine instead. Talk about having your cake and eating it too!
