      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!!!!!!

      The TDI cup cars have 170hp and 300 ft.lbs
      The 140hp cars have 236 ft.lbs.
      There's so much aftermarket tuning available for TDI's that I don't think the fact they have 140 hp stock should be a breaking point for anyone.

      Agree. Everyone complains we never get anything cool here, then when we do... they complain about it.

      Great idea VW. Thanks!

      Oh, it is a good idea, and I appreciate VW bringing us some cool stuff, but if they had read the pages and pages of input on the Tex about this concept they would have seen we wanted the 170hp version most of all.

      Even with the 140hp version, I may shop it when it arrives. I want a Golf R, but may need a 4-door. I'd look at this over a regular TDI for sure.

      vw brought one of these and a mk6 tdi golf out to the east coast r32 track day. The TDI's weren't doing to bad in a field full of r32's. I wouldn't be too disappointed about only getting the 140 hp version, 236 torque works quite well and the car looks great. I'll have to look to see if I took any interior pics.

      Cool car, but that front bumper is hideous. There's more plastic mesh than actual front end.\

      So you guys want them to federalize a different engine for how many cars? Would this make sense to you of you were running the show? Sure, I'd like more horsepower as well, but I sure as hell wouldn't expect them to shell out a couple million to sell a couple thousand cars... and you can just chip it for additional ponies.

      They should just make the 170 HP the standard for all TDI's

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Jetta.

    16. 11-05-2009 07:59 AM #51
      Add that engine to the Tiguan, Passat, A3 and A4, and then you have a much larger market.

      Ok, so I love the concept as I already said, but I'm really starting to hate that front bumper. I wish they went with a more understated design like the MkIV GLI/20th/337, it looks way to rice to me.

      edit: wow I can't belive the blank out rice-er, minus the hyphen! Censorship sucks

    19. 11-05-2009 09:29 AM #54
      Once you see this bumper in person I think you will change your mind. I built a GTI with the Thunderbunny kit and it was HOT! I think this looks sweet especially on the Jetta in Laser Blue! Butttt thats just my opinion.

      Here are some places that tune TDI's. Behold the dark side:

      Kermatdi.com
      TDIparts.com
      Boraparts.com

      Among others that I can't remember. I don't believe there are any stateside tuners that have chips out for the tdi common rail engines at this time, but it's probably not going to be too far into the future either. However based on how the other tdi engines respond to chip tuning, I bet it's safe to say that a chipped 140hp car will probably meet or exceed the 170hp TDI-cup spec figures.

      ... and blind everyone on the road with you now THAT is rice!


      They didn't add the 170 because it would cost too much stateside, where small has to = cheap, simply wouldn't sell as well. Also, who cares? A chipped TDI with bigger injectors and a new clutch can make and handle very close to 170hp/300tq! Not bad for a $20,000 car that gets 40mpg highway!

      They're not going to invest tons of money in a market that hates diesels. Give americans time to come around and I think you'll find a lot of TDI options in the near future, including varying engine/trim options. This is just the start.

      good way to clear V platform... lol

      Too bad they aren't using this as a launch for the MK6 platform in the sedan. But then with only 2500 available, it would not make much of a splash.

      If I was to buy a mkV Jetta, it would be either this model, or the JSW.

      You have to drive the new TDI in manual to understand why it's fun, and like others said, who cares that it only has 140hp, chip the damn thing!

      I agree 100%!!! like we wouldnt tune it anyhow... I am thinking the fahrenheit could be replaced by this..... I wonder if it comes in ORANGE??
