But, I don't understand the combo of the tinted side mirrors/rear emblem and chrome grill!
The purpose of this thread is for me to keep track of what im doing to my car in a bit of a timeline. If you have any questions/comments good or bad feel free to chime in.
Ill add links to stuff where possible. I apologize for the sub-par photos most were taken with an Iphone not my SLR
The day I fell in love with the car (showroom model) 2011 Jetta SE with Conv.
When I brought it home (came tinted with monster mats, cargo blocks/liner)
First thing I did was vinyl wrap my rear emblem and add a (non oem) lip spoiler
Next step was to throw some LEDs all-around:
I found the Rcd-310 to be a bit boring so I decided it needed replacing. Got a great deal on an RCD-510 on Ebay.
Next up was some fresh new wheels. Got a great deal from a fellow vortex member on his 18'' Autobahn wheels.
I enjoy a more aggressive wheel so I picked up a GLI paddle shift wheel. Feels great, and all controls have been coded to work.
Got some carbon vinyl from ebay for cheap and wrapped the door cards only. Easy to do and helps set the interior apart and unique.
My fascination with my interior furthered when I got the itch to upgrade my RCD-510 to an RNS-510 nav unit.
Tint wrapped the side mirrors for a more subtle look and added chrome grill
Enabled comfort windows via remote
Increased comfort turn signals to 5
removed horn confirmation on lock
enabled full MFD: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...FD-on-your-MK6
Some kind of suspension *cash strapped*
rear view camera
possibly a euro/gli bumper

not sure how I feel about it myself. its just 3m chrome trim I had laying around almost took it off earlier today but figured I would wait until next wash to make sure it comes off clean.
The front emblem likely is staying chrome though not a fan of how it blends with the black grill.
2012 Jetta 2.5 SE w/Convenience & Sunroof - Platinum Gray Metallic.
Officially out of the box, yes. You can buy 500 dollar aftermarket adapters but that's pointless.
rns-510 can play DVD,camera,nav, phonebook, with 5 inch display
Rns-315 can do back up camera, nav, phone book display, and 3 inch display
rcd-510 is just a radio with sat. Newer models have hd and phone book display. 5 inch display (euro models have camera input)
ive used cheap-O ebay leds for months without a hitch
Search on ebay and buy the cheapest ones. They do take forever ever to arrive though since they come from china.
I just buy extra sets to have in case since there so cheap
