      the jetta is my 4th vw. most recently was the shadow blue rabbit most may remember, enjoy the pictures or videos. all the pictures should be clickable for high rez. i'll let the pictures do the talking. updates as they happen!!

      how i came to get the jetta is pretty clear.































      the day i got her. CPO for $18,000. 28,500 miles. first week of december.















      i brought to the dealer my euro switch, rcd510 (sat antenna on dash), and dash cubby. so i could make the 4 hour drive home with sirius.





      made color matched side markers

      removed pinstripe

      wired up the roof sat antenna to work with the rcd510, and chipped with fully loaded APR we are only 20 days in at this point.






























      foglight retrofit, and amber city's







      blindspot mirrors. spotted this in FL! lol





      bsh true seal, and plasti dipped the coolant tank, dip stick, and washer filler, also at this point i removed the under hood insulation



      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ec32kl3TpzI



      LED's installed on monday but i'm still having some trouble coding them fully. any help would be appreciated

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...1#post76158045



      already had a waterpump die on me, but was fixed and then the dealer didnt instal it correctly so it blew again on the drive home. that pretty much sums up where i'm at in the 4 months and 5,000 miles i have had her. avg 24.75 mpg.

      Loved your rabbit, can't wait to see where the Jetta goes.
      If you are heading to SoWo, you should meet up with the group of us heading out. I know a few guys out of Lakeland are meeting us in Gainesville Friday morning if you want to join.

      Jetta City!! LOL. I've never seen one on the road before. I think that's a good thing though...
      Sorry about your rabbit man, that looks like it was a bad crash. What happened?

      It's great! I love seeing Wolfies! Lower it... (which is something I'm saving for).

But blessed is he who in the name of disparity overwhelmeth the exotic in the valley of the s-bends.

      I remember your rabbit from ROC and I really liked the way it looked. Sad to see it totaled. Good luck with the new build.
