      Hi everyone! I'm Fede from Argentina and this is my first post and this is my mom's Jetta, which she doesn't use much, so I do. The Jetta does not have a lot of mods for many reasons, first of all my budget , second one that here there aren't many aftermarket parts available, and the ones that are, are sooo expensive as they are brought from USA or Europe. Third, the Jetta is quite an expensive car in this side of the earth (starting at 31k US dollars) which you don't want to brake or make any mistakes with.
      Anyway, here are some (crappy) pics:





      The car's got sports springs. I can´t go lower as the streets here suck.
      Quite dark tinted windows, that aren't illegal around here.
      6000K xenon in low beam and fogs, aren't illegal either.
      2din Pioneer DVD receiver, amp and sub. Those are the main mods


      Sorry for bad english!

      I am a full time biochem undergrad and work part-time. My income is little to none and almost anything i make goes to bills. Anything extra goes into the GTI, which has not been much. Since I do not make much, I am trying to focus on the performance side of my build. So far, all I have been able to manage is a stage 1 tune, intake, short shifter, and exhaust. I want to complete the TBE, and want to lower the car and get some lighter BLACK wheels still.
