      Guys complaining about too much mesh:

      We are talking about two different bumpers. Compare the bumper in the mugshot that was posted to the picture released from VW. You will notice that there is actually less mesh than in the mugshot - and I agree the mugshot has an awful lot of mesh.

      Regarding the interior (I have not seen it) I doubt that VW will make any hardware changes at all. This car is basically your Wolfsburg Edition on steroids. You will not see the interior change until the arrival of the MKVI Jetta in (hopefully) 2011.

      Also I have my theories regarding HIDs - I doubt it. Considering that the true cup racers did not have any. It would be great though.

      It almost seems as if the top portion (that appears to constitute too much mesh) is a solid black piece of plastic -probably to mount the license plate/holder on.

      I like this concept! Would really like to see interior though. Would this get the GTI-ish MF steering wheel?

      As far as 170 vs. 140, I'd rather they throw the R32 AWD in this TDIcup Jetta sedan. See where I'm goin'? TDI + sedan+ AWD + sport suspension, brakes, etc.=

      VW does what I want them to do, and I already have a relatively new car...oh well.

      I'll test drive it...could consider one used in the future.

      Look closer. It's the same bumper. There's black plastic underneath the top portion of the mesh.

      Here you go guys:

      Got this from a dealership near Little Rock, AR this evening.


      Volkswagen Dealership Communication

      To: Dealer Principals, General Managers, and Sales Managers

      Subject: TDI Cup Street Edition


      Great news! The Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition will be available for customers beginning in January 2010.

      The original concept debuted in Las Vegas during the 2008 SEMA show. After the SEMA show, the concept was displayed at TDI Cup races throughout the country. Additional PR and Marketing activities are also planned to support the introduction, including a dedicated press event in spring 2010.

      This vehicle has been very well received by enthusiasts and consumers. Here is a notable quote from one customer: "...that's EXACTLY with I want (or NEED) for my commuting to work! Sign me up for the 6-speed version. Perfect car for my 80-mile daily commute."

      The similarities between the TDI Cup race car and the "Street" Edition are apparent at first glance. The TDI Cup "Street" Edition features the brakes with red calipers, sway bars and Ruropean sport-tuned suspension for the performance-oriented GLI. There is an optional body kit that includes the front bumper, side skirts and rear valance that are found on the TDI Cup race cars. A lower priced version is available without the body kit.

      Enhancements to the TDI Cup "Street" Edition go well beyond cosmetics. The TDI Cup "Street" Edition is powered by the award-winning 2.0-liter clean diesel engine that produces 140 horsepower and an impressive 236 lbs-ft. of torque. The engine makes use of an advanced electronically controlled turbocharger and common rail direct injection technology, and can be mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or the highly acclaimed DSG transmission.

      Other upgrades on the Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition include sport seats with Interlagos cloth, and a performance enhanced steering wheel with paddle shifters when equipment with the DSG transmission. Completing this dynamic special edition is a set of 18-inch Charleston wheels with performance all-season tires. In addition to the Laser Blue debut vehicle, other colors include candy while, black, and salsa red.

      Pricing will start at $24,900 (manual) for the base version and $27,340 (manual) for the full replica car with body kit.

      Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition Ordering Process:

      Volkswagen has a finite amount of TDI engine capacity available, so the TDI Cup "Street" Edition does not represent incremental production. Therefore, it's important to understand that every TDI Cup "Street" Edition ordered will offset a regular Jetta Sedan TDI the Dealers would otherwise receive in your normal allocation.

      With that in mind, here is the process that will allow Dealers to take and confirm orders in advance of this special model for your customers:

      Check out the new order guide (attached). This will provide all details and specs of the vehicle.

      Negotiate and Finalize the retail order with your customer. All orders should be secured with a deposit.

      Submit order in VIM. Place order in VIM as you normally would for any SOLD order. Orders will be pulled and sent to Production on a weekly basis. The Actual Production week will be determined at the time of confirmation by Production.

      Inventory Units will be honored where possible. After all SOLD orders are confirmed by Production, and there is additional capacity available, Dealers may order Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition vehicles for your Inventory.

      Future Jetta Sedan TDI Dealer Allocations will be adjusted. For every TDI Cup order placed and confirmed into Production, either retail SOLD or for dealership inventory, your future allocation of Jetta Sedan TDI will be reduced by one unit.

      For more information on the TDI Cup Street Edition Reservation "Pre-Sales" Program, please contact your regional support staff.

      This Jetta cup car is photo shopped. Those are not the headlights or bumper.
      The blue is a fantastic colour on the Jetta Cup car but we would need to get it in white so we could decal it up for shows.

      P.S. I do agree with the trim change around the windows from chrome to black.

      It's not all about horsepower, you can't appreciate a TDI until you drive one...especially with a manual. It's all about the torque that makes them a blast to drive. Being able to accelerate out of a corner while in the higher gears is intoxicating, I love driving twisty country roads in my TDI, I can only imagine doing the same with the new TDI's

      There will only be 2,500 Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition available.

      Are these going to be numbered like the 20th and .:R32s, or more like the 2004½ GLI that was going to be limited edition (and then built for 2005 as well)??

      If that is directed towards me, go back to school kid....haha, you must be retarded.
      you need a lesson in mechanical engineering and physics

      anyone who compains about this thing not making enough HP is retarded cause it doesnt rev high enough to produce the HP levels like a gasoline motor does. Example: Hondas have no acceleration due to the fact they have no torque but they can wind out a gear to make HP at 9000 rpm.


      This is by far the most awesome VW factory diesel made to date.


      Edit: Next to the V10 TiDI of course.

      I like this concept! EDIT/DELETE See where I'm goin'? TDI + sedan+ AWD + sport suspension, brakes, etc.=

      Cadtech, I like the way you're thinking. Two idiots, one thought. So goes the saying.

      Make my TDI sedan AWD sport suspension and big F-cking brakes Metallic Silver with Onyx leather.

      I like VWs TDI Cup marketing follow through ... Its a TDI model with enough excitement that a dealership's floor traffic will benefit.

      My MY065.5 Jetta 1.9 TDI/DSG pkg 2 mit Navi was fitted early on with a Eibach spring/Bilstein HD arrangement, GTI 17" alloy/Michelin and uprated rear brakes. (GTI rear calipers/rotors/Pagid pads) So,, after 3 years ownership with 70k miles accumulated on the clock , the TDI continues to be an enjoyable car to drive. Seem's this (USA) TDI Cup Street model is similarly positioned.

      Its not the same front as in this picture. If you look close the center section isnt nearly as tall

      Couple questions:

      How does the performance of this engine compare to my 2.0 GTI? 0-60, overall fun?

      HID headlights? yes or no? because honestly I dont think I could go backwards from my GTI to regular halogen again...

      I love the blue, Just not sure I could bare to part with the GTI if the performance doesnt compare and no HID lol

      what's the point of a special edition car with 140hp? their marketing theme could be "my slow". If they're selling this in the u.s. they better bring over the golf r.

      They're not going to invest tons of money in a market that hates diesels.

      I dunno where the diesel hate is, most everyone in my office is jeaous when I say 41mpg every day, and 46-50mpg on my 6,000 mile road trip vacations...

      If it's uneducated american public you speak of, they still don't know VWs exist, and probably never will... They think you need a large SUV to get a 5-star crash rating.

      Considering the $25k price tag is basically what we spent for my wife's 2006 5-spd_TDI Pkg1, if you added the $1300 upgraded wheels, and discounted it with the $1300 government rebate, I'd say it's a bargain. I just want the paddle shifters for my DSG_TDI... (I know, go to TDI-club).

      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!!!!!!

      Correct me if im wrong but the TDI cup cars and regular TDIs have the same motor...
      the only difference is the TDI cup cars have the european ECU, giving them more power...

      atleast this is what i was told by the TDI cup driver at h2o...
      and yeah where are the r8 brakes

      instagram @sarpeezy

    31. 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. 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.
