    Thread: Volkswagen Announces Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition

      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. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]
      edit: wow I can't belive the blank out rice-er, minus the hyphen! Censorship sucks

      Anyone know if this 2500 for USA & Canada or just USA?

      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.

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

      bingo!
      but their likely saving this for the MKiv ?

      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!

      Looks like Wings West designed the front bumper cover. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]

      I agree complete about the horrible front end to much plastic mesh!!!

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

      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.

      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??

      I am interested in seeing pictures of the interior, I wonder if will look like the 2010 GTI interior? As far as the interlagos

      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.= [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      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.
