      That does look good. The TDI badge is a nice touch.

      Id love to be able to do the whole front bumper cover/fascia as well.

      Does this mean the GTI grill will fit the GOLF since it looks to share bumpers with the JSW?

      And how much for the Grill?

      The grill (part# 5K0853651ASATK) was $223.00 plus shipping from vw discount parts http://www.vwdiscountparts.com and the TDI badge (if you want it) is a B4 badge from ID Parts http://www.idparts.com)
      I wanted to totally debadge the grill and not be a GTI Poser, but once you remove the badge the grill has solid backing right behind where it attaches. Looked at it to try to remove the extra plastic like you can on the 2009 GTI grill but it's a bit more complex and compact and would take a lot of fine work to make it look correct. So I just removed the GTI letters on the badge base and after some minor surgery on the back of the TDI Badge and some 3M doublestick, this is the result.

      Grill looks good. Kudos. personally I would have used the same badging as the rear instead of the old B4 one but thats just me.

      I think it would have looked strange, being how small it is. But the honeycomb grill looks sweet! Pun intended

      Hi All.
      Used to own a B6 Audi A4 stg 3 MTM kit and some other good mods. but a nice couple decided they wanted to hit me at an intersection. so the Audi was totaled.

      But I work at a VW dealership so i have been waiting for good deal to come through the door.
      And a couple weeks go a black on black 6 speed jetta TDI wagon came through the door and after PDI'ing it and after it sat on the lot for a couple weeks and i kept looking at it everyday i decided to get it.
      Got it tinted this week, and waiting for someone to come out with a good coil kit to lower it.

      sorry i phone pics.

      Bunch of stuff.

    10. 03-02-2010 08:49 PM #45
      I tried the TDi badge from the rear but It did look small - the B4 version is exactly the same letter height as the GTI I took off.

    11. 03-05-2010 12:32 AM #46
      Snap! How much was the GTI grill? What car did the TDI emblem come from? My salsa red JSW TDI might just need these.

      Oops, sorry didn't see there was a second page to this post with the questions already answered.

      Any update on whether or not the GTI bumper cover will fit? Any part numbers available? I'm starting to think I might prefer to have the GTI front bumper over the whole available body kit for the wagen.

      Call these guys. They put together some MK V to MK VI conversion kits so they would have a list of common parts, and could tell you what you'd need to buy. Please let us know-I'd love a GTI with a Golf front end.

      I am very interested in this.

      I would love to find out if it is possible to transplant the MkVI GTI bumper/valance onto a MkVI JSW. As shown elsewhere in this thread, the upper grille is pretty easy. Hoping the other bit is as well.


    16. 03-05-2010 03:03 PM #51
      FWIW -Here's a link on the main GolfVI & Jetta VI that is talking about the front grills on a GTI but also shows a exploded diagram of the front of the GTI's and the Golf/Jetta-
      http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4786077
      I wish it was a little more detailed - I'm trying to figure out how to remove the side grills without going to the extremes of removing the entire bumper cover. i want to add the slimline led driving lights to them.

      Just added a Gentex/Mito auto-dimming mirror and a Passport Escort radar detector to my son's JSW. His car doesn't have a sunroof, so I didn't bother to even look for switched power in the overhead console.

      I ran a single power wire from the fuse box from the top row, an empty fuse location which was switched power (I still need to put an fuse in the line).

      Then ran the wire between the dash and A pillar.

      Then up the A pillar to the headliner.

      I removed the overhead console. Sorry, no pictures of that part of the installation so here is an explanation: There are 6 screws you need to find in order to take it out. Start by removing the sun glasses holder and you will find 2 screws. The pry off the the trim covers from there and you will find another pair of screws. Then remove the guts of the console and you will find the last two screws.

      From there I terminated the power wire with the appropriate plugs for the mirror and radar detector. I also added a new hole in the hidden roof sheet metal for ground.

      Lead the two power cables to the new devices. Button it all up and you are done.

      Are those 17" rims with 225/45 tires? Man the gap is huge - thanks for the pics - they definitely help me decide to go the springs route before the wheels.

      Good job on the mirror install. Does this mirror light up in red (the buttons)? That is the only thing I'm not crazy about with these aftermarket mirrors and like the Audi ones because of the color matching (compass and button).

      Can you please take night shots of the mirror? Thanks!

      The mirror has a single green LED. It doesn't have any other lights on it. The ON/OFF button doesn't light up. Since the car already has a compass, thermometer and overhead lights, my son didn't want to spend money for more options on the mirror. The only other thing he could gave used was Homelink. But where he is going, I don't think he will have a garage for several years to come. So even that wasn't necessary. I think the mirror was only $69. We bought an adapter from a UK company to make it work for another $12 or so.

      Does anyone find it odd that a father would buy his son a radar detector?

      That looks great! Are those dates on the photos correct? If so, do you have any more recent photos/has it settled any more?

      Any chance you can take a pic directly/squarely from the side? I'm wondering if you have the slight reverse rake that many seem to have with lowering JSWs. It kind of looks like maybe you do, looking at your wheel close-up shots.

      Oh and I'm assuming you only swapped springs?

      Thanks.

      Wow - it's unfortunate to see a father help a son install a radar detector - I'm not sure this sends a good message - you know there is not supposed to be any endorsement of racing or speeding on vortex - this is awfully borderline.

      That's the stupidest thing i've read since landing accidentally in the Mk III forum.

      We have a similar Passport installation in all three of our regularly driven cars, and had one in a fourth that was sold in December. Two of those four cars were driven mostly by my kids (daughter 17, son 21). I think you're way off base citing installing a detector for your kids (especially "kids" that you know nothing about) as sending any kind of message, and in particular for making a backhanded accusation that spockcat has made an endorsement of racing or speeding.

      I'll join quaiiallstar in complementing spockcat's installation, and throw in a "way to go" in the parenting department. Based on the map coordinates spockcat lists (well maybe not; they're on a bridge) his posts which I've read, and a little profiling from the Touareg V10 (sorry dude) I'm guessing that he lives across the CT river from me in one of the speed-nazi infested upscale towns in our area. With the State and municipal budgets sucking wind in CT, the cops are finding new places to hide now that the snow is melting. Last summer in my town one of the selectmen (town council member) was written up for 26 in a 25 zone, which was nowhere near a school or even homes. If it will help my kids to watch their speed in residential areas, I want them to have a detector in the car.

      I'm not worried about them speeding; they've both attended Barber and have driven my Elise at HPDE days, so they don't need to do it on the street, and are likely better drivers than most of the drivers they are on the road with. In an environment where revenue enhancement is the functional main daily task of some town's police, knowing when to be at or below the limit can be pretty important.

      After my daughter completed her 2 days at Barber, I let her drive over to her mom's house in the Elise, with me in the passenger seat. In her mom's town we got pulled over. The cop saw the little blonde behind the wheel, but did not see me. When he asked her how fast she was going, she told him exactly how fast, which was below the limit, and then asked why she was being stopped. They gave some BS story about wondering if she was old enough to drive...and then started asking questions about the car. If we were in the Mini or Passat, they would have paid no attention to us. Having a detector in the car can help my kids know in advance to go into "grandma" mode and avoid getting a ticket for a couple of mph over.

      Kids (even college-aged ones) have a lot of things to learn, and having a detector can help a good one become even better just by reminding them to check their speed. Particularly in a TDI which can creep up the speedometer innocuously.

      Did the car come with the mudflaps or did you install them? If so, what was the installation process?
