      Around these parts, Brad Beardow at fifteen52 needs no intro. Brad has been around the VW block a *long* time and has built some memorable cars over the last 15+ years. Everything from his Projectzwo kitted Golf, New Beetle and Jetta to his famous "Project X" build series here on VWvortex where he cut up a Golf IV *and* a Jetta IV to create a Jetta IV coupe. So when Brad called me up and mentioned they had just bought a Jetta VI "to play around with," it got our attention. The Jetta VI (for enthusiasts anyway) has been met with a high level of skepticism and in its basic form is a bit boring by all accounts. So Brad told us some of what he would like to do to the new Jetta and we decided to provide him an informal platform to tell everyone. So Brad and Co. at fifteen52 will be bringing you some regular updates on their current project car, thoughts on the new Jetta VI itself and more. Consider us interested to see what they have planned...

      Seems like a smart move, in the future there will be a lot of cheap used MKVI Jettas around for people to pick up and be relatively fearless with modding.

      hurry up and make some rear bags. No need for hype.

      Booo... buy that joker out of demo and turn it into a coupe. You can still do all the other things as well.

      I bet VW even has a couple rear windows laying around somewhere that you could incorporate.
