I will critique your choices for modifying your car... constructive criticism .. nothing more, cool?

paul... paul paul... the wing on the rear does not do a VW, let alone a Jetta any justice (coming from a guy who has decided to put a big vented hood on his own jetta Smilie_PDT )

If you do decide to go this route, but I do not recommend it, you will have a very difficult uphill battle awaiting you... sleek is the name of the game when modifying a German car... 'Clean' also falls into this category.

You need a set of wheels that I'm trying to get rid of ;) ... some oettinger RE 18x8s
your 2L engine with a wing of that size or any bolt on wing will become a silent laughter mod - trust me... you need to grow out of this era quick.
For looks, the car needs a drop of at least 1.5" 2 would be the money shot, slammed on airbags would be pure sexual chocolate, but only from a looks aspect.
Tails are okay, you will meet haters more often than not... a dark tint over them will keep them less of an attention getter.
Antenna is a good subtle mod that adds to the appearance without being overbearing.
The tint is nice and dark... maybe slightly illegal?

Most individuals start off with simple mods such as this, but realize that you can't necessarily mod the german car the same way you can mod a japanese import...
headlights are good if you can get a hold of some "joey modded" headlights for a relatively cheap price... it's basically a stock headlight with blacked out housings.

what kind of engine are you plannign on swapping into it? it might make the difference with that intake and exhaust fitting correctly...

thumbs up for getting your feet wet into the whole euro-modding scene.  PDT_Aliboronz_15 I would definitely look into a nice set of lightweight wheels to complement your overall goals. My suggestion? no chrome Smilie_PDT

I have blue LEDs in my vents, so I'm keeping my mouth shut.  Do what you like, but you will get more love from this group with less show and more go.  But then again, some of these guys spend thousands modding and re-modding because there is no satisfying them.  ;)

You've got a good start, easing into the mechanical stuff.  Spend some time with these guys, you'll learn a lot about VWs -- and you'll relize that Drogonfli_x isn't hatin'.  But don't let anyone talk you into anything you don't like or don't want to do.

i kno the wing is a lil overbearing, but it was only 80 bucks with half off because they were merging with another company, plus i like huge spoilers Smilie_PDT,

been looking at a 1.5k engine V6 ( off a 2000 jetta with 50k miles on it), but i dunno yet..

it will work with my intake so thats ok

i might try and sell it, a guy is offering me 6k, not much but i got it for free,

maybe join the club and get a golf...
havent decided :(

thx for the tips hehe
reznier

and yes my tint is very close to illegal, not quite tho haha Smilie_PDT
fxgolf

if you are looking for a gti i am selling mine.  PDT_Aliboronz_20  and do what you want to your car just make it really fast so no one can talk shit cause you just killed them at the light.
reznier

depends on how much Smilie_PDT going to school and working full time atm...

and how many miles does it have on it ?

and og course whats the price range ?Smilie_PDT
Getta Life

lose the wing and your golden.  PDT_Aliboronz_07

i just got my interior lighting in today along with my MKIV side markers and indicator lenses... im gonna shave down the wing's base i think... dunno

CRITICISM LETS FOCUS PEOPLE!
dragonfli_x

the trimming down of the arms might look pretty decent! try it out and get us some better pics! Not trying to tell you how it HAS to be done, but if you'd just lower it with some springs that Neko is selling and get a good set of shocks, the car will look so much better! that and if you grab a set of 17's or 18's, it'll complement the look that you are going for... just no chrome Smilie_PDT

wheel spacers for the rear will create a well desired stance as well. (shoot for 10mm-20mm - but don't forget to get longer wheelbolts... can you swing about $600 for a Brand new set of wheels/tires?
reznier

i work at sears automotives... i get a 10% discount on all that stuff... i been looking at some American Racing 17"s... polished gunmetal Smilie_PDT

i would like the 1.5" drop, but how much would that run?

got a new grille comming in... and forgot that those older pics dont even have my pin stripes put on :(


edit: gotta save my cash now... lamb of god goes back on tour feb, plan to blow 1k for pit tickets. plane flight if needed... and hotel etc Smilie_PDT happiest ive been to spend that much money lol..

There's a car in the pic?  All I see in a park bench.  J/K  Smilie_PDT

Very nice looking.  I really like the color.  Do you have the E-Code headlights?  Yours look really clean.  My gf has the plastic ones and they have gotten frosted/fogged.  I have tried doing a light sanding and using plastic wax but it only works a little.  Anyone have any other ideas?

Meguires has a kit just for that.  If you go the sanding route, put a plastics clear coat on it to keep it from frosting again... but it iwll eventually turn yellowish.

well my headlights are not oem but theyre not really custom....

just got them in about a week ago... maybe just new looking is all Smilie_PDT

old ones got all foggy and crapped out,

I got their plastix wax.  Works pretty well.  I will have to try and find that kit.

It might be a different brand, but it was one of the major ones... they can only do so much.  If you had a MKIV, Mark has some spares.  (you'll hear that a lot)

GAH!!!

shaving this spoiler down is gonna be a bitch...

would have to be perfect... if i didnt want to have to redrill holes in my trunk...
no pun intended

Maybe if you just narrow it a good bit, take some off both sides?

Yeah, whatcha lookin for? I probably have it... and Rez! you really need some bigger wheels/ lowpro tires... AND A DROP! even a 1" drop will give your car a whole new look... I promise! if you can find the suspension off of an 04 or 05 GLI, that would be the money shot right there!
reznier

i would love to ! Smilie_PDT dunno where to even look for that crap around here tho :(

and call me crazy but i think sum lower fog lights would be pretty awesome, in place of the two lower vents right above the valance
VrShadow

To flashy. you took a great looking car and made it look civic. not trying to be mean but classy is the name of the game.
reznier

bah fine, im kinda tired of the beast on the back anyways.... got some adhesion remover, plastic spatulla thing, and some stuff to make it nice again :( i wanna get smoked out tail lights, might try the spray on stuff on my old tail lights lol Smilie_PDT

pics soon Smilie_PDT
stuston

It's a nice wing... for a wing. Smilie_PDT
albanyjetta

nice car! id look at it if i was at a stoplight.

you  should go to the apr bbq to see a lot of other cars and you'll get to see some  of the ideas you were thinkin about in your head.

befor driving a dub i was pushin an accord. well lets just say i had a a lot  to learn.lol

but make your car "your" car while my car might not be vortex friendly. i love it everytime im walkin up to it. do what make you feel like that
