The mk5 jetta

Recommended Posts

Well i sold my polo 9n to some one on here :( but with that gone it let me move on to bigger and better things, so about 3 week ago i picked up a 2006 jetta 2.0 tdi sport with 49k and full vw service history and timing belt and water pump done, had afew ideas going round my head and wasnt sure what i wanted to do with the car modding wise.

 

Well here it is once id picked it up

Then after browsing the net for hours looking for wheels i finally found a set that i wanted so went and got them.

After id picked the wheels up they didnt go anywhere near the car till i'd bought some coilovers so the hunt went on for the coilovers, in the end i went for some fk ak streets, once they'd arrived it was a couple of days wait before a friend could fit them for me but what a difference it made when it was all sorted.

 

Work in progress

Not updated this in ages but not much has changed other than a remap, fitted a USA chrome grille and had the indicator running lights activated and got hold of some fat fives to run in the winter.

 

Here's afew pics with a mate when I was trying the fat fives and before I wound the coils down abit more.

Love the jetta, hopefully I'll be picking mine up tomorrow. Where did you get the us chrome grill? If it was a dealer only job could I have the part number pretty please?
