Quick background... my dad taught me to drive back in the fall of '83 on a 1980 Rabbit Diesel L, silver with red interior (ALL red) 4 speed. I ended up driving that car for a couple of years in high school and I loved it. Why has it taken me almost 30 years to drive another VW?? IDK! The 2011 JSW TDI 6-sp manual is the perfect car, so much fun and so much car for the money. Though I'm not sure I want to pay $2500 or so for nav & wheel upgrade since I'll be putting on the 18" black Khartoum wheels (and suspension limiters). Dealer here in Birmingham, AL is looking for this car in Candy white with black interior, no nav. I want the panoramic sunroof, body kit and rear lower airbags. The body kit & wheels should give me the look I'm looking for right off the bat. New springs & a chip should help with performance...looking to just get the 170hp of the Euro spec 2.0T. Looking forward to learning a lot & hearing from many of you!
