      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.

      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.

      Your mother must not have loved you enough as a child. I am guessing she probably still doesn't
      On a side not maybe daddy loved you too much?

      I like this concept! EDIT/DELETE See where I'm goin'? TDI + sedan+ AWD + sport suspension, brakes, etc.= [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      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

    19. 11-08-2009 01:44 PM #94
      looks like a fantastic car to me!

      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
