I bought myself my first brand new car yesterday.

Got a nice price on it, and after looking at the 2011 MK6 Jettas, I realized this would be the better purchase...and it's a turbo diesel.


Every option but sunroof and navigation, both of which I'd rarely use I think.

Good move. The new Jettas have nothing on this one.

Here we can only get Jettas in auto transmission...

nice looking car!

and no nav? so all models come with a touch screen like that?

also kinda funny how the speedo goes in increments of 10 then 20 after 80

like the color, probably one of the best colors for this model along with black :)

Yep.

Very similar to the layout of my vRS.

Which engine?

Scratch that, 6 speed box. Got to be the 2.0 170PS. Beautiful engine. Don't let the V8 fans know how much torque it has ;)

It is indeed the 2.0 but its the 140hp TDI, which is the only engine we get unfortunately. The torque is the main reason I chose this over the 2011 N/A Market Jetta with the 2.5.

DSG is boring to drive.

And arsing about with gears on a car that is clearly not meant for performance driving is oh so interesting.

I'm sick of this manual-supporting shit. DSG makes your car more economical, and when you want it - faster. You can always use the bloody paddles if you wish.

Kracka

No plans as of yet, maybe some smoked side markers, gli hedlights and a euro headlight switch.

DSG is just one more thing to break, and I find an actual manual trans more fun to drive in any car...this things moves pretty quickly thanks to the torque rating.

Actually spun a little in first and chirped 2nd on the way to work today haha

It must pull hard as ****. With some ECU mods this thing can outgun some V8s.

Neither is it a surprise for me. Diesels tend to be a louder than similarly displaced petrols though.

But the meaty torque, damn it. 3.0 TDI V6 in an A4 offers S4-rivalling performance and shitloads of torque.

Of course it is, you don't need to be in a very fast car to enjoy driving.

DSG (and DCT, and PDK) is butter-smooth, which makes it boring. We owned a DSG Audi in the past so I know what I'm talking about.

I'm sick of this manual-supporting shit. DSG makes your car more economical, and when you want it - faster. You can always use the bloody paddles if you wish.

DSG makes your car heavier and thus, less economical. Using paddles is like a videogame, not so fun.

The DSG's main advantage is in urban driving, because you don't get tired as easily, but it simply isn't as fun as a manual. I'm all for giving options to people, though, which is what manufacturers such as BMW aren't doing by offering DCT-only vehicles like the new M5.

Get your facts straight. All performance figures are improved with double clutch transmissions. Get over it. 'Driving pleasure' doesn't mean shit if you define it by moving a stick around a leather casing in a ****ing traffic jam.

Manual is just cheaper and normal to use. Some people aren't masochists, you know.

Listen. Alot of us don't care about the figures if we cant have fun driving. For most of us, Driving with a stick is part of the "Driving Peasure." just because you're to bent on technology and cushy rides like some sellout, doesn't mean that we cant have our fun.

Only time you'll have problems with a stick in a traffic jam, or any situation for that matter is if you're a non-driving fool. Most people who drive stick learn to drive it so well, you cant even feel the change of gears in the passenger seat.

CEOs driving Mercedes-Benz dont drive for the awesome fun they have in it.. they drive them because most of them are pompous and unoriginal.

Besides, what does CEOs have to do with "Driving Pleasure" or gender?
Being a CEO doesn't qualify anyone to be a higher lifeform... The only thing thats different is wealth. At the end of the day, a CEO means jack to me.

nfslover101
10-15-2010, 10:01 PM
Even though I am a huge GM fan, I must say I really love the new Jettas, and the new "clean diesels" I hear are wonderful to have. Does the bumper area near the tail pipe get pretty black from the exhaust, or are they really clean burning? I know the older VW's that had diesels would almost always have black stains on the bumper near the muffler (probably just owners failure to keep the car clean).

AgentRoo
10-19-2010, 11:48 PM
Nope. they're very clean burning, plus diesels nowadays have particulate filters incorporated to trap soot and the like.

A good remap is worthwhile - but don't rush it. Give the ECU time to record your driving style and it will be much more worthwhile. Testimonial from driver of remapped diesel. (http://www.torquecars.com/tuning/diesel-tuning.php)

Don't know what quality of diesel is like in the US, but I'd recommend using premium if it's available. Personally, I only use BP Ultimate. Its a fair bit more expensive (8 or 9%) but the car seems a little more responsive and a little quieter. Certainly a little more economical.

*Insert moan about detuned diesels being sold to make petrol models look more attractive*

As far as I know we don't really have an option of what grade diesel to use, we just have a single selection. The only problem is the amount of fuel stations that offer diesel, is pretty low.

The car is plenty fine for right now, and I've got to get the other cars finished before I really put money into this one.

Haha thanks.

Yeah the 2008-2010 Jettas recieved the smoked tail lights as opposed to Europes LED tails (I am highly jealous, by the way...) and the wheels set the scheme off perfectly. The only thing that isnt smoked on the car is the bumper side markers, which I am debating what to do there. Might leave them be to break everything up.

Here is a slightly better picture, but I couldnt open photoshop so I couldnt adjuset levels or whatever.

They're lovely, and I understand how you see them - fly LEDs and quality.

But for me they're so common and I still think the dimmed US ones look better (when not illuminated; I've seen the US ones in action, their lighting is gradual and looks very sleepy compared to Euro items).

But congratulations dude, you'll have LEDs at the back and those look miles better when using the turn signals. Braking action is also nice. You'll probably be far better visible back there. Not to mention the high-end effect of this kinda thing. It's usually exclusive to high end executive cars.

Forgot to take my camera out of the car so I snapped a picture off at work as I was getting ready to leave.

Oh, and I put in LED tails about two weeks ago.

Picked up some smoked side markers at Waterfest XVII today in Englishtown New Jersey..put them in tonight and the car looks 10x better. I'll have to snag a picture in the day light.

Speaking of, I think this would look sick on your car. Carbon rear lip spoiler.

Not a fan on dropping that kind of coin for a spoiler that I'd have painted anyway. Thanks for the link tho!

Here is a thread on Vortex my buddy put up tonight of a small shoot we did of my car and a mod we worked on when I cruised to his house after work.

Awesome. I always hated the massive amount of chrome on the front.

The VW emblems would look cool in black too.

Leaving the grille and the emblems the way they are to break up the dark colors and add some sort of contrast.

To cover up the oddly placed stickers as well as the peeling paint, my friend who works at a skate shop gave me "a few" stickers, so I threw them on my fairing.

Test fit some new wheels, didn't grab a picture of the front of them on my car, but here is what it looked like.

Bolted them up to the front....annnd no go, they hit the coilover housing.

Gotta sell em.

Dunno what to suggest. I'm pretty sure that Team Dynamics Monza R will fit fine (that's whats on my similar Skoda-badged model), but they aren't to everyone's tastes.

do they foul by a lot or is it just a slight rub?
You can get spacers and longer studs

might give you that little bit extra clearence?

Spacers would be great, but the following problem would be the poke from the wheel lip outside of the fenders. Would be far to much for the tires to stretch..Was going to go with 215/35s but that was only if it would have cleared the wheel wells.

It's your car, but the original rims look better to be because they've got a touch of Giovanna Capri.

I dont know where you came from but every post you make winds me up like a clockwork toy.





Yes, i can see why that might be an issue.

It's a shame, especially with the crazy amount of dish them wheels have :}

Nothing has changed on the car, really...been broke and busy. Drove it up to central Maine to my lake house was all the exciting things I've done.

Thanks sir!

What happened to the roof rack?

Took it off a few days before the show to detail the car and never got around to putting it back on. Claybared/waxed the vehicle and then it got dark hah.

Also took the PlastiDip off of the grille since it was chipping.

You should get some black headlights. These just don't fit.

I want a set of the blacked out headlights, but I am not sure that will be happening anytime soon...I need to really start spending money on the other car to get it finished (and registered!)

Here is a pic I took a few weeks ago.
