      Don't create one, buy a Passat B4 TDI grille emblem. Just like on micajah's black car posted above.

      If the pins don't fit the holes in your grille, cut them off and use 3M body moulding tape.

      It's not a diesel Thanks though!

      Those letters look like the ones that Pep-Boys sells. I checked them out when I was looking for a way to do the TDI front badge.

      Just added the two under seat drawers to my son's JSW TDI. As long as you own the correct triple square wrench, this isn't a very difficult installation. Pull the 4 bolts. Tip the seat back. Fit the holder to the bottom of the seat. Insert 4 screws. Push in the drawer. Tip seat back into place. Reinstall the 4 seat bolts.

      I bought the parts through my office in Germany but they are available here for more money through the Euro VW parts suppliers. Adds two nice places to hide stuff out of sight. Will post photos later.

      Love to see the photos of this when you can. I'm thinking of doing the same to my JSW SE.
      Any issues with clearance over the BlueTooth module under the seat?

      I am thinking of putting 19" wheels on my 2010 JSW. Does anyone know what the correct offset and width should be?

      Thanks.

      HRM - I just picked up a set of VMR v718 19s in gunmetal. The fitment is 19x8.5 and offset 45.

      Thanks for the tip. Do you have any pics?

      Also is the 8.5 for front and back? Do the rims stick out.


    7. 04-02-2010 10:42 AM #112
      I'll definitely post some pics when installed at stock height. I think there is a lot of interest out there to see how 19s look at stock height, I myself included.

      I hope these puppies look good.

      I just picked up my JSW and feel that the tire and rim combination doesn't look right at all. Does this look normal for 225/35/19s tires on 19x8.5 rims? Tires are toyo proxey4.

      The guy at the shop said it will look better when it is lowered. Will it?

      skirts installed window tint is next.

      Love these wheels!
      Lower that thing and post some pics from all angles please!

      I ran 235/35/19s on my MKV and thought it looked good (at least in the back).

      Post some profile shots of the car so we can see what it looks like that way. Honestly for 19s, those wheels look tiny at that angle you've shown us.


    13. 04-26-2010 02:01 PM #118
      Bump for more JSW pics. I can't get mine for a couple months so I'm counting on you guys.

      SF_Diesel did you lower it yet? Let's see those VMRs in all their glory.

      Thanks!

      Can we get a direct side view of the car? I'm sure it would look a lot better lowered but to be sure, can we get a side view?

      Thanks

      It will look a lot better when it's lowered, but the tires look extra skinny on those wheels because the wheel is quite wide. It's an inch wider than what the GTI's stock 17" wheel is and you're running tires of the same width as the GTI.

      Sorry for the late pics, I was on vacation and didn't have much time to edit the photos. The rims would fit a lot better if they were 8'' instead of 8.5''. I love it, but would love it more with less stretched tires.

      yum !
      i like that lots

      What suspension did you end up going with and how is the ride? 19's look right at home on the JSW - can't believe they even fathomed to use 16" as stock. Happen to have any full car pics (side view) of the car with the sinful gap before you lowered it with the VMR's on? - just curious to see how 19's would look at the painful stock ride height.
      Looks good SF - now watch those potholes!


    19. 04-26-2010 07:32 PM #124
      k3ys3r_soz3 - I went with the H&R springs that everyone else uses on the forum. I can confirm that it rides well, not stiff and there is no rubbing at all with the setup. I also purchased the suspension limiters and had it installed with the springs. My wife hasn't complained about it, nor my two toddlers in back.

      Unfortunately I do not have any side view pics of 19s on stock height because it was so horrendous I didn't want to be reminded of it. LOL. The tires are so stretched on the 19s 225/35/19 that it really looks bad if you did not lower it. Trust me you wouldn't want to go with 19's and not have it lowered.

      If I had an opportunity to buy rims again, I would buy 18x8 rims. 18s because the tire fitment (sidewall/tire thickness) on the rims will look much better and will not look stretched. 8'' width because 8.5'' in the front sticks out just a little too much.

      From the side that looks fantastic. They don't look like 19s, and I mean that in a good way. They look just right. The color match also looks great! The VW caps give it a nice OEM look too.

      But I'd have to agree that while it looks tons better lowered, the 8" wheel would look much better.

      Thanks for the reply, I'm in the same boat as you with the 2 toddlers, so its good to hear the ride is decent. I think I would go the 18" wheel route - mainly because I probably could never afford a 19" setup - nor would my wife let me . I am thinking of doing the exact same suspension setup although I would be somewhat worried about the stock shocks going early.

      rick/sneaky stella - thanks!

      K3ys3r - i would go with lowering springs first. IMO lowering makes the car look much sportier and you may end up not having to go the route of buying rims.

      Don't know much about snow chains in BC, but don't you guys need it up there? If you do, I definitely won't go with the 19's.

      No, I definitely need bigger rims, 16" just doesn't cut it for me. They look way too small for the size of the car.

      Lol, Ive never used show chains in my life. I bought snow tires for the VW last year but it only snowed lightly for 2 days that I had them on for the winter - best waste of money spent. It doesn't snow that bad up here as much as you guys think.

      I'm looking at new wheels for my 2010 JSW. Originally thinking I would do the Goal anthracites:
      These have turned out to be very difficult to locate, so I started looking at aftermarket wheels.

      A friend recommended the Motegi Racing MR116:
      What do ya'll think? Also, am I correct that these wheels would even work on the JSW

      Hey! That's my car! Anyway...you couldn't find gray Goals? They're everywhere. When I was looking for my Golf a couple months ago, dealerships had them laying around as takeoffs and were willing to make deals on them. They're cheap too.

      Nope, I have asked both dealerships in my area as well as the out of state one I bought it at about these wheels. All quoted prices of around $250/wheel without rubber. I have been searching online and it seems the cheapest they can be had now is about $750 for wheels only. If anyone can find me a better deal let me know.

      Here are FK Konigsports near the bottom in the front and 16 threads up in the rear. I'm waiting for everything to settle then will raise it back up a tad.

      Gotta agree that the color's almost a perfect match for SF_Diesel's car. And those rims are hot, by the way.

      sf_diesel...is that Platinum Grey? It looks really light in the pics, almost a dark silver color. Looks awesome though.

      It looks like a really sunny day in the pic and the grass looks neon green so it's probably that his camera's white balance if off or just incorrectly set.

      Does anyone know if its possible to run a rear fog on the 2010 JSW? I want to get it with the switch, but I'm unsure if it will work with the stock lowline CECM that we have. If anyone knows i'd love to hear.

      Have seen some really slick rear LED tails on Golfs & GTIs.
      Any option yet for the '10 JSW ?
