Nicely done. I like the direction you're going with your Jetta. Nice wheels! They fill up the fender wells nicely and aren't so wide they stick out. The tint looks great! I've been procrastinating..need to get mine done. Grille blackout looks nice and will be sweet when you get the fogs in.

I have the LED tail lights but haven't installed them yet. Not sure if I want to keep the ones I have that are quite red v/s the 'cherry red' ones that are closer to the dark red of my stock tail lights. Can't install them until I get the VAG-COM which is coming soon.

The first mods I did were to replace the small '194' type 'city light' bulbs in the headlight housings with amber bulbs, put in a Euro headlight switch so I can have parking lights (I prefer full control of my headlights and plan on installing driving lights later as well). Also with the help of a local VW owner with a VAG-COM, I disabled the DRLs, seat belt chime, and can open and close my windows & sunroof with the key FOB.

Great looking Jetta you have there. I love the contrast of the white with the tinted windows. Sweet!

I love the matte black grill. I have a question about your pic with the grill in pieces. I found a matte black grill pretty cheap online but it does not have the solid bumper cover part. The part that is still chrome in your grill pieces picture. Do you know what that piece is called? I need a new one as my chrome one has the holes from a front license plate so painting it matte black is out of the question.

Thanks!!

ezwakeboarder, I don't think I have ever seen the center piece sold separately. You could pick up a used grill without holes on vortex and then sell your grill with holes.

Thanks! I'm not sure. I have a bunch of LED stuff I have been thinking about doing, along with a HID projector retrofit.

Also thinking about getting rid of the DPF and going to a stage 2 tune. Not sure I want to drop the coin on that though.

Thanks! I've thought about coils/coilovers quite a few times. I would probably do performance related things before I ever got around to doing ride height stuff.

I think we have twins, but it looks like mine is a bit higher? I am thinking similarly -- a little performance first along with some simple cosmetics before thinking about lowering (I think I made my Audi A6 2.7t too harsh with Eibachs/Bilstein yellows/18s). If I could lower slightly and stay with stock shocks I might reconsider, though.

Plans are to add black splash guards & black wing, some tint; Revo and sway bar. 17s in spring.

Bone stock right now:

Nice! I made it about 2 weeks before i took my car in for tint and not too long after that, I swapped fog light grills. White looks SOOO much better with tint.

I like your blacked out grill, looks way better than the stock chrome. I'm thinking about doing something similiar but with the spray rubber stuff.

Corvettecrazy - have you had any issues with inspections? I want to get my wagen tinted but can't decide between 20% and 35%. I've been told that even with 35% you run the risk of being illegal because of the tint in the glass.

I have not had any issues with inspections. Although if you went to a shop that was really strict, I guess it is possible.
