I found this little tidbit in the latest version of the parts diagram. The new chassis code for the mk6 Jetta is 16. This means the 7th and 8th digit of the VIN numbers on mk6 Jetta will be 16. Normally it's a number and a letter so I don't know if it's just temporary.

From what a third party said and looking through the parts diagram, I can confirm that VW decontented the sliding armrest. The armrest normally tilts up-down and slides out to extend. I don't think most people would notice or care about removing the fancy trunk hinges, the locking rear folding seats (for valet security), the AC vent in the glovebox (I've never used it once), or would notice the return to hydraulic power steering. But seriously! The armrest was extremely comfortable because it slid out and they just turned it into a mediocre armrest! Base models don't even have an armrest (TDI do).

I can also confirm that they removed the hood shock support and replaced it with a simple rod to stay open.
