    I like the body style of the Jettas. They are very clean looking. Are they easy to get into/upgrade?

    Hey, good start!

    I've got a question...

    Is there any room for a Cd receiver under the AC controls if one would decide to mold a 7" VGA screen on the top? I'm thinking a Jetta GLS ('00-'02) might become my next car. Just curious.

    Also, where are the cup holders?

    Peace,

    Rafster

    No theres no room for anything under there, its maybe 4" deep and theres a harness and metal behind it, aside from the 12v socket and an ashtray. The cupholders are the silver bar above the headunit pocket ontop of the HU. You push the silver bar and they slide out, and lower to ebcome two cupholders. The newer models dont have this, they have a center console holder.

    And yes, Jettas are very easy to work with, panel wise. Routing my Sub wiring under the door jams was a snap (literally, 4 clips) and doing all this panel removal for the wiring is merely 6 hex screws.

    Not trying to be rude, but there's a subforum for worklogs. This one is supposed to be for finished projects only.

    Jettas are nice looking is that a VR6?

    the worklog is a subforum, at the VERY VERY top of the show off project forum. You think it will be done in a few days but we all know, you can predicit the future : )
    Go on and do it, do it, Do it 'til you're satisfied,
    Whatever it is, do it, Do it 'til you're satisfied.
