Re: Drove a new 1.8t jetta today. Nice!! (boilerman)
Yeah I didn't have the 1.8T Jetta as my first choice either, wanted a rave green GTI. I drove the 1.8T Jetta, 5-spd and absolutely loved it, lot's of useable torque down low, where I do most driving. The decision however came down to interiors, and I was not budging over $20,100 OTD, which mind you I had on a velour int 1.8T 5/spd, no monsoon, no luxury pkg. Oddly enough the dealer had a loaded black GLS Jetta monsoon, lux, multifunction wheel ect... 2.0L 5-spd and best of all the interior shod in beige leather ahhhh! drove it, not fast but plenty of torque down low, being it did not feel sluggish.
