    Thread: Volkswagen Announces Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition

    1. 11-12-2009 08:22 AM #101
      Why R8 brakes? Price would be unacceptable with them. I drove 220hp TDI and it still just TDI. No need bigger than GLI has. Put there Garrett GT2559V in it and tune it to 240-250hp and than, think about bigger brakes.

      I realy think these complaints abut 140hp ae LAUGHABLE.
      the name of the game here is torque.
      TORQUE you EEEEEE-diots!
      I owned a 90hp '03 TDI, and it was a BLAST to drive.
      Software mods would've made it ridiculously fun.
      I love this Jetta Special Edition. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] VWOA, I'm still trying to work this out.

      Cool car, but that front bumper is hideous. There's more plastic mesh than actual front end.\ <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://is.rely.net/2-64-38734-l-yH6MqWv48NW9sxLXcSnMA.gif" BORDER="0">


      Yeah, I would put a standard rabbit front bumper on that thing. It seriously looks like that guy that drives around with his '95 Neon with a real bad body kit.

      Skip this rendition of the Golf/Jetta platform. We have a 2009 Jetta Sportwagen TDI 6-speed which is a superior design for about the same price. The article says the "TDI Cup Street Edition" has the exact same engine as our wagon. How racy is that?
      The low end torque of the TDI provides an unbelievably pleasant shifting experience. The TDI feels much faster than it really is and gets in the upper 30s mpg. But the wagon has better rear seat head room and the huge sunroof is better than having a convertible. It has decent carrying capacity while still being small enough to be fun. The only flaw in the Sportwagen TDI is the lack of a cloth interior option and Xenon lights.
      But I couldn't get the "Street" edition because I refuse to pay to have advertisements on my doors.

      well, take a heatgun and take the stickers off - pretty much what everyone is going to do anyway - thats like keeping the dealer sticker on the trunk - its more of a dealership lot thing then you remove it

      Why complain about the 140hp motor? Same displacement, so just chip it.

      Noob question.. Will the interior be a MK5, or will it have a MK5.5 (ala JSW) interior?

      The 2010 TDI Jetta wagons at the dealers now have the MkVI front end and interior. It would be nice if the 'Street Ed.' TDI at least the new interior but it appears it will carry on the MkV interior.

      I applaud VW for making another special edition, but we'll keep our '09 JSW TDI 6spd with the Eibach lowering springs and factory 17's (hopefully 18's soon...) and be watching the tuners for software/chip updates. And as a VW enthusiast who has owned numerous GTI's and also has a Corrado VR6, I can tell you that our JSW is NO slouch when it comes to the fun of driving. Nobody leaves us sitting at red lights, and we cruise effortlessly at 80 mpg getting 36 mpg. With the larger brakes on the JSW, aftermarket springs and largest stock wheels offered, the twisty mountain roads are JUST as much fun as the Corrado. OK, almost as much fun as the Corrado.

      PD140 can be chipped to over 170hp to the wheels.

      What does the front end look like WITHOUT the optional body kit? Same big chrome grille/bumper as any other Jetta?

      I think it's a great idea. Keep throwing out the limited editions. I picked up a Turbo-S back in 03. If this came in a wagon I'd bite.

      I wonder how good this would in snow? With and without snow tires?

      Front end doesn't flow. The pin stripe is ugly. The wheels need to be better. Door pillars are not painted. Car needs work.

      Here are a few pictures of the cup cars at Road America. Unfortunately I missed them in action.





      even the pace car was cool.
      thank you Volkswagen.

      VERY VERY NICE!!!
      Love that torque stat. Does anyone know what the 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile times are?

    24. 12-05-2009 09:02 PM #124
      The red #28 was driven by one of my crew guys. Andrew Tucker FTMFW! I love that dude, he's really coming along as a driver, too.
      I'm stoked they are bringing this car over, I'm really tempted, but I'm holding my breath hoping that they make the Bluesport roadster. I'd buy one in AL and leave it at APR until it could wheelie.

      Reminder you can catch Andrew Tucker and all the other Jetta Cup drivers on SPEED tomorrow at 5pm EST.
