      Black mkV jetta, tuned exhaust, sounded pretty sweet. Saw last night 11/10 on i-94 headed west around 9:15pm. Wondering why its didnt have wheels or anything but realized it was prolly in winter mode.

      spotted in wausau, wi on 8/10/11 around 530pm: black mk3 jetta with tinted windows, shiny wheels, and lambo doors. i gotta say though, i was satisfied to see that it was lowered. i wanted to stop by and take a sneak peak but i was in my boat and the owner just pulled into the parking lot to fish from shore.

      Saw an older white Fox about 5 times today in West De Pere, WI.

      Two people in it. The owner's friend noticed us checking it out as we were driving next to them in downtown and said "sweet car ehh?". It pretty much made my night.
      Couldn't get any good pictures.
      Looking for miscellaneous Scirocco S2 parts: Shifter boot, ebrake boot, and sunroof crank. PM me
