I am new to VW. I am looking at getting either a Jetta TDI or a GOLF TDI. Reasons for choosing
> Really good on GAS
>Golf seems to be german build -Wins
>Jetta seems to be Mexico build
Anyone can comment.?
Also Is the stock 8 speaker system any good, vs the upgraded 6 speaker system, or should I just put in my own...

drive both and see. it is the only way you will know for certain. the golf is really an amazing car esp in tdi format. if interior size is an issue the jetta will feel larger on the inside. personally i like a smaller car, i am more comfortable in a smaller cabin. some folks cannot stand it.
if you like the versatility of a hatch but want a slightly larger vehicle consider the jetta sport wagen tdi. the rest of teh world knows it as the golf wagon because that is truly what it is. doesnt handle like the golf tdi but it is better than the jetta sedan in my opinion.
the new TDIs are nice. between the golf or the jetta its a horse a piece... correct me if im wrong but both models are made now in mexico i believe and the passat in TN. now i dont know what you plan on doing with the car or even if you plan on buying new. i work at a dealer and i see the jetta come in with problems a lot more than the new golfs... and plus the golf (rabbit) and beetle made VW famous get the classic.

I had a 2011 Jetta DSG TDI and got rid of it, A year later bought a 2010 Golf MT TDI and love it. I felt like the Jetta was too mushy and not very fun to drive. The golf had the standard stereo and I replaced it with a couple amps, Focal mids-highs, and a JL 8" sub. sounds great. It is my DD. I can help if you need with the stereo.
