      Why do you "hope" did you fund the trip to Pep Boys to get them?

      I honestly dont find it small at all. I think its the perfect size. How big of a touch do you really need to point and select music?

      I think he is referring to the MFD screen in your instrument cluster.

      Didn't base MKV's that didn't come with the MFD screen have a smaller sized screen there? Or is that just the Rabbit/Golf I'm thinking about?

      EDIT: nvm, it was a base Jetta

      Why don't they have a foglight kit for the 2011 Jetta SE's yet? The SEL's have them stock. How hard can it be to make a kit we can purchase to add them to the SE models. I'd also like to say to an earlier response about there not being much love for the new Jettas in here, First year models of almost all cars are snubbed on forums at first. If you love your car thats all that matters.

      I've heard the earlier models used a softer plastic material. I'm not sure, but I still love my SE.

      nope
      just bought a regular HID kit
      install for the low beam was a bit tough cause there isnt much space but the fogs was a piece of cake
      im pretty sure once the GLI comes out then there will be more aftermarket parts

      Dont have to remove the bumper or any bolts
      just remove that plastic cover that surrounds the low beam light
      reach in where the drl lamp is and just twist and turn the bulb out
      it should also tell you in the manual
