      My first encounter with VW Sport was 1996 when they displayed their MK3 ABT Jetta Vr6 at Waterfest 2.
      With this new Jetta VI it feels like 1996 all over again.I think the car has so much potential.
      Can't wait to see the progress.

      I definately hope you guys can breathe some life and some true German standards + appeal to this all to close to American style automobile. Until then I will continue to rock my Jetta I, II & III's.

      That 2.5 motor would be amazing with the New Eaton TVS 900. You guys should get a hold of Magnuson Products and look into viable FI options.

      High Torque and HP out a a motor that doesn't need a balance shaft is a good thing.

      Chip, thanks

      2011 looks to be a big year for fifteen52 and the Jetta 6 could well play a big role.

      We'll have a new update for you all next week and we expect to be able to offer some pretty frequent installments, at least in the beginning

      Because for the intro it's just another bone-stock silver Jetta SE.

      We actually never took pics of it in stock form

      Next update will have lots of pics, I promise

      Appreciated, thanks.

      In our opinion, the Jetta does need help, but fortunately the help doesn't need to be major. The proportions are attractive and there are some distinct B8 A4 cues. Our J6 with just a reasonably lowered suspension and more aggressive wheels and tires has already made more than a few people say things like, "You know, that's actually a pretty good looking car," or, "Wow, that looks more like an Audi than I realized."

      The headlights and grille are a bit boring, the rear bumper is too Camry-esque, and those front fangs are, in our opinion, potential deal-breakers. But as luck would have it, we have fixes planned for all of that

      what is the chassis classification for the new Jetta, since it's not golf-based anymore, it's not an "A"...it's not a "B" or "C"...

      It's still the A6 (PQ36) platform, but unlike the Golf 6, which is PQ36, the Jetta 6 is PQ36 LC.
