Just playing around guys... I'm really upset on what they did to the jetta mostly on the front end. The side profile and rear is pretty sweet. Some nice lines.
That's the reason I went with the CC after I sold my mk5 last week. I can't stand the way the front looks.
Here's my '06 jetta that is now with new owners. So don't tell me I don't have jetta love.
In regards to the Jetta 6, we're back to square one and no doubt people will come around over time. Plus, there are folks like us who bought one of these cars with the specific goal of "fixing" the front end and then offering our solution to others

The new jetta's need a spoiler on the back badly. I actually love the look of the new front end though, very aggressive. I'm also a hold out for the GLI, however I love the look of the SEL's with the chrome accents and fogs. The S and SE models are very plain though.
I think that the SE cars, being VW's predicted highest-volume seller, need chrome trim on the windows, grille, and air dam too. The SEL cars can be further differentiated with extra chrome on the door handles, possibly chrome all around the door windows, and/or HIDs/LED tails.
Just my $0.02.
But yeah, I'm excited for the GLI as well. At one point it was hinted that we would see it revealed this month, but apparently that was delayed.
The proportions of the V were so right, and tight, weren't they? The new one is a bit too sterile for my taste. Your Jetta was a real nice looking ride fastlane, I bet you'll miss it.

Also am looking at some wheel and suspension options...air seems thin up at the altitude the 4x4 suspension is putting me at
