Thread: About to purchase my first Jetta

    Default About to purchase my first Jetta

    Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and I am thinking about getting a 2010 Silver Jetta with 70K on it. The car is in mint condition with basically 0 marks on the car. I was wondering what you guys would recommend me doing to the car if I end up getting it. I am not a huge fan of chrome so I am planning on painting the front grill either flat black, or plasti dip it. What else would you all suggest for a first Jetta owner to do?

    FYI I am a college student and I don't have a lot of money to put into it.

    Thanks for any help.

    Well since your in college and can't afford to mod your new Jetta. I would just keep it stock and enjoy it for what it is in the meantime.

    MSD isn't possible on 1.8t, 2.0, and 24V VR so unless you have a 12V it's really not possible

    I ended up not getting the 2010, and instead I got a 2008 SE 5 speed

    I would save for some better shocks and a rear sway bar. Then just change out the plastic pieces for some used brushed aluminum ones, Add some stainless steel knobs, and reupholster the doors and head liner yourself one piece at a time to save money. It will look like it is worth way more money, it isn't expensive and it will handle really great. Oh and definitely a $40 Boser hood extension and some nice clear headlights. Then maybe save for a different front bumper? Some light rims?
