Default FINALLY got my TDI!

Well I finally got my TDI- I have been lurking(and posting a little) on here for prolly 6 months now. I finally got a deal worked out to get rid of my Superduty for a brand new 06 Jetta TDI. I guess it is a package 0 or 1. It has the regular a/c and no MFD. Black exterior and Biege interior with the DSG....hell yeah! already put 117 miles on it and the fuel gauge is still at 7/8ths! awesome!

I would like to thank this site- as I have used it to gather a wealth of info about these cars before I went looking. I am sure I'll be posting more regular now.

edit- guess I need to change my sig now!

Stormed here last night and the car was NASTY- spent a couple of hours today cleaning it and waxed it up. Looking decent again.

More than decent! That's a beautiful car!!

I love black when it's clean and shiny. It's the best color to show off. The black & tan is a lot better looking than I imagined

Thanks for posting the pics and Congratulations on your new TDI!

Gotta love black! ignore the dust on the paint. I like the Trans Ams reflection in it. Also added more pics to the album I posted above.





I was wearing a black soled shoes the day I bought it- and the left black marks on the carpet by the time I got home....suckage. Gonna have to get some mats myself....

I was sort of debating getting black.... but all the cars I have had have been black inside or a dark color.

I bit my tongue and just waited for the delivery (tan was my original reqeust) and am very pleased that I stuck with tan.

Welcome Leedogg. I've got black and tan too. No DSG though (long story) I'm a longtime V-dubber, but the '06 is my first TDI and I wonder every day why I didn't make the switch from gas 10 years ago. Enjoy your ride!

Does anyone know if the heated leather seats from a Jetta A6 can be placed into an '04 Jetta.

(I ask because your seats look to be motor driven.)

Thanks man! I love the DSG myself. I have the Trans Am you see in the reflection for when I want to bang some gears and at hellish and irresponsable(sp). I really took an interest in these cars when I saw an econo-box shoot out in one of the auto rags. The VW kicked ass in the highway driving(which is 80% of my driving) segment, and really got me to looking. Then I found this place, and started looking immediately. It took 6 months to get it done due to a couple of problems.(1-I was way upside down on the truck and 2- my ex wife screwed my credit after our divorce) But it is done now- and I couldn't be more pleased.

Woohoo!! just filled my 2nd tank - 38.8mpg! This is up from 35.75 on the first tank. This was about 75% highway driving at around 80-ish. I love this car!

Car also cracked 1000 miles on the way home from work today...1000 miles in 2 weeks- one of which I was offshore.LOL
