      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.

      Hmmm.... Wouldn't checking your speedometer be a better way to check on your speed?

      x2 - Also, VW's have that great feature that allows you to set a speed warning -

      Absolutely. Like CT personal property tax.

      Not sure if this has been covered anywhere. i searched and have looked online everywhere. IS there anyone who knows where to get the JSW chrome badges?? like the one on that black mK5 with the LED lights. That is the only wagon i have seen with this JSW badge i cant find it anywhere. Any help would be great.

      That is not a "badge" that is sourced as a single part. It is probably three letters from the OEM Plus "badge alphabet" where you can order the letters to spell anything you want to.

      MORE Mods and Pics and JSWs.
      LESS debate about who's raising their kids how, or whether speeding tickets are a deterrent or just a revenue source or whether the Easter Bunny really exists.
      Does he?

      x2 - I couldn't agree more - Let's get back on topic people.
      I'm really interested in the JSW as I am considering it for my next vehicle so let's see some more mods/pics...
      Also, does anyone know what will happen w/ the JSW when the new Jetta comes out for 2011? Will there be any entirely new JSW?

      As some of you may know, there is a great JSW mod thread (23 pgs) over in the MKV forum which we all know is essentially the same vehicle.
      Check it out - there also seems to be less bickering over there (probably because certain users don't post over there )

      Thanks - Here's new pics with the skirts and front spoiler installed. Trying to decide if I should install the H&R sports I've got in the garage or coil-overs.

      Does anyone know if the Mk6 tails on the JSW are the same as the Mk5? The tint looks different.

      love the kit. care if i ask where you got it from and how much? thanks.

    18. 03-23-2010 01:27 AM #93
      It's the factory spoiler and skirts - I got them from vw discount parts - http://www.vwdiscountparts.com
      about $800 unpainted and then had a local shop paint and install for $450.00.

      I believe the tails are exactly the same except the 2010 JSW's are slightly tinted. I've had my Golf Wagon parked right in front of a MkV Jetta Wagon and couldn't tell the difference - it was kinda dark out though and I was looking from about 30 feet away - the difference must be pretty subtle.

      Hmmm, I should check with OEM Plus. Was thinking about getting the Euro rear light which subs the foglight for the reverse light on the d/s taillight. They only have this advertised under the Mk5 parts.
      I'll post if I find out. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      How did it ride? Looks great! I think I'm sold on coilovers. I like the idea of keeping an everyday ride height about like fleuger's, but having the option to go lower should I feel inclined to do so and go back up if I tire of it.

      Wow, what a beauty!!! I am trying to decide wether or not to do a full GTI front bumper and grill with a gloss black lip or the front lip spoiler like yours. I have a Candy White Golf Wagon with Bilstein PSS10's and BBS CK 18's and let me tell you, I am soooo glad I went with the coil over instead of the springs. After some hevay duty mountain highway driving the springs have had some time to settle, and similar to a handfull of the H&R's there was a slight lowering of the back end. Beauty was that I could move it back to level and the car is perfect now!! I have the height set to a hair lower than a stock GTI and I have the agressive look, while still beaing able to hit speed bumps and pull out of steep driveways without any worry. If you have the means, my vote is go coil-overs and you will never look back!!!
      P.S. Love the red accent you had done on the front lip!!! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Pics?
      Just for reference sake, when you get a chance, could you post up your ground (or wheel hub) to top of the wheel wells measurement?
