      I figure rather then creating a new topic with new pictures/mods each time, I'd just start a "build" thread. I'll just update here as things are changed added. So anyway, this first post will be extra long as it contains mods to date and they are as follows:

      Performance:
      AFE Cat-back exhaust system
      Neuspeed intake
      APR Stage 1 software

      Suspension:
      Koni coilover system
      Neuspeed front and rear sway bars

      Wheels/tires:
      Raderworks MTEN85 18X8 ET 42 wheels
      BFG KDW II 215-40-18 tires

      Electronics:
      RNS-510 ver E (2012 Passat)
      9W7 bluetooth module
      High-line CECM upgrade (for lighting upgrades)
      Paddle shifter steering wheel added
      Hard-wired Escort 8500 X50 red
      OEM Passat rain/light sensor for auto headlights/wipers, coming home, leaving home, etc

      Lighting:
      OEM GLI bi-xenon's
      Projector fogs with yellow lamin-x (programmed for DRL and cornering lights)
      Dark cherry Euro LED tail lights w/rear fog
      Euro headlight switch with auto/coming home/leaving home
      LED interior lights
      LED license plate bulbs
      LED parking lights

      Appearance:
      OEM GLI grill set (strip painted blue for clean diesel)
      Lip spoiler
      35% window tint
      TDI specific monster mats

      That's about all I can remember at this point, here are some photos:











      Winter mode:

      GLI side skirts, front GLI mud flaps and a chip are in the near future.

      Nice Work

      Side skirts

      Check some of the VW parts websites (vwdiscountparts.com)

      They have side skirts for much less than ECS.

      It looks like through them I'd have to piece the kit together and have it end up costing more. Any idea if they or anyone else sells a complete side skirt kit?

      I've been eyeing all of those parts for quite some time. My brothers cup edition is stage two with a full turbo back exhaust from them. On my to-do list.

      Car looks great! I just picked up a '10 Jetta TDI a month ago, I know later down the road I will want to install OEM LED tails. Did you have to do anything different during the install being that it is a 2010 with MKVI electronics? Or is it the same as any other MKV? Also, ECS and OEM Plus have the GLI lip kits as a set. I have already been looking into them for my car. The paint on the factory lower valances doesn't match perfectly on mine and it really bothers me.

      See what i did there, you dont.
      Replica wheels are like fake boobs. They look good on the outside, but when it comes to quality, Nothing beats the real thing.

      Thank you sir. Installing the tail lights was quite a process and I believe I may be one of a handful of people who have 100% successfully installed them WITHOUT bulb out errors. I had to upgrade my CECM to a high-line one which is now discontinued. The newer ones will work properly however you'll have a bulb out indicator. VERY different from any other MKV. I actually wrote up a huge procedure on how to do the whole process, but the tricky part will be obtaining the correct CECM.

      Thanks, do you have the part # for the CECM you have now? I figured this was going to be a mission.

      Thanks, the write up will definitely come in handy when I get ready to swap out the tails. Hopefully I will be able to find a suitable CECM when the time comes.

      i really like this.

      Great process.

      Where in NY are you?

      Also, what do you mean by you set up fogs for corner lighting?

      Thank you! I should actually post a stock pic, but you guys all know what a stock Jetta looks like...

      I am in the Albany area.

      Cornering lights are a pretty cool feature that while the headlights are on and the fog lights are off, if you turn the blinker on and turn the steering wheel in that direction the fog light on that side will light up. This is supposed to add viability while turning at night. A lot of GM cars do that from the factory. Hope that made sense, lol.

      Looks clean but the chrome trim seems to clash a bit with the theme.

      Super clean, OP. Was expecting run of the mill TDI and was pleasantly surprised by your nice jetta.

      Platinum gray?

      I got back and forth on that topic. I think I may try some plasticdip on there to see how it goes. The chrome still matches the chrome in the headlights and tail lights so it's not completely out of place.

      Thank you. Clean is the look I'm going for. I'm not about over the top mods especially since this car is my daily driver. My overall goal with my car was to take the normally bland and boring TDI and make it stand apart from the rest while maintaining an OEM+ type feel.

      It is indeed platinum gray.

      Just ordered all the parts to install the rain/light sensor, auto dimming CC mirror and it'll be programmed to do all the neat coming home/leaving home, auto headlights, auto wipers, auto lights when raining and last but not least, close the windows/sunroof if it starts to rain! Man I love these sneaky little mods.

      Mine came with those bunk ones as well. My girlfriend heard me complaining about them and got me the "TDI" ones as a gift!

      Man this really, really makes me want to get the GLI grille. I think I'm starting to prefer the glossiness over my matte plastidip grille. Looks awesome!

      I splurged on the TDI mats too! The Jetta ones were boring!
