    Thread: Volkswagen Announces Jetta TDI Cup "Street" Edition

      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.

      Just delete this platform and go back to the 04.5 Jetta GLI. The last good looking Jetta.

      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?


    19. 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.

      I like the .:R32 pace car! Probably fast than the race cars.

      The mk5 jetta has nothing on ANY of its predecessors. A mk3 VR or GT or a Mk2 16v were so much better also. And for its time the Mk1 Jetta was cool and now pretty hard to find of course.

      Thanks for the updated pictures. I like the idea but have a hard time thinking about buying with plaid seats. haven't had plaid seats in a car since I learned to drive in a 72 Charger.

      I can get you clean mk1 coupes, with no rust, lemme know.

      lovin the look of the car

    27. 01-17-2010 11:07 AM #132
      I admit it looks like an everyday driver, the thing you'd take to the office or on a night out with the lady. And the boys will drop their jaws just as fast as the girl's knickers. Although, I think it's a tad under powered and i know i have more then a handful to agree with me. I'd love to have this in a 2.0 liter turbo version.

      looks shout "fast"... but the engine? purrs like a kitten. all show and no go ei?

      i believe i saw one in white the other day? i DEF saw the lower stickers and same front end.....

      "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"

      I took the heat gun to my new salsa red TDI Cup tonight, the graphics came off easily, and I love the way it looks.

      Great car with nice suspension, comfortable seats, tons of torque across the six speed. Very happy a week into it. Cheers, Erik

      I believe this car and other models should have at least the 170HP engine just for the extra grunt and power for the top end. Hopefully VW will see fit to at least add the 170 hp to the range even as an extra cost item.

      Recently drove a Ford Mondeo in UK with 170hp and the difference between 140 hp and 170 hp is like night and day//

      Any one heard snippets re the 170hp making an appearance in N. America
