    Woo hoo to the A3 Jetta GLXs! Me gots one too (though not as nice as yours).

    I would recommend the Vento lights. Otherwise, nice clean ride. Neat that you deleted the rear spoiler!

    thanks man, yea I did the polishing myself.

    I have thought about getting the vento lights... and I really should because the light output just plain old sucks on the NA lights.

    too bad they're so expensive

    Oh, I just noticed the exhaust tip. What's the deal with that anti-bling tip? My stock exhaust at least has a dual tip. Yours looks like a single small unpolished residential water supply line. :wtf: Going for the low-key look?

    I dont like the big bling tips. Too many ricers want to race if they see that kinda stuff. Its a techtonics tuning 2.5" GTI exhaust so I just had to throw on a regular single tailpipe to make up for the extra length of a jetta.

    I would like to put a corrado SLC tailpipe on, I like the looks of those

    Nice GLX btw, what mods are you running? I'm guessing you autoX it.

    Yeah, I autox in sts. mods aren't great, bilsteins, neuspeeds, big rear bar, camber bolts so I can run neg 3 deg of camber. some other stuff, brake fluid and pads. The car really isn't that competative at the moment, but I'm getting some custom rate ground controls and having the bilsteins revalved for them, so hopefully that will be a good change.

    just revamped my intake and removed my entire A/C system.

    heres a pic of the new intake - its a civic intake :) way cheaper than any made for the VR6

    and the front end comes off in about 10 minutes. its like opening a 2nd hood
