so I have a 2.slow ha ha jetta. And like the topic that was brought up a few days back, it's automatic. I know from going to shows and such no one has tried to do anything with a 2.0 auto. Yeh go and flame me, but it was a free car- i'm 17 and my dad would kill me if i a. pulled out the engine or b. sold it. so what would you guys recommend for car mods? this is my list so far, without a couple random extras that really don't matter.
European Headlight/fog switch
Neuspeed Sports w/ bilstein sports
Neuspeed 22mm Front Swaybar
Neuspeed 25mm adjustable Rear Sway Bar
Neuspeed Polished Upper Strut Tie Bar
JOMLOOK Audi door handles w/o locks
Roof Mounted Fuba
In.Pro Smoked Vento Headlights
Hella Smoked Fog Light Kit
Hella Red/Smoked GLX Taillights
Gaugelights.com Lighting conversion
Borbet Type R wheels 16x7.5
Kumho ECSTA Supra 712 205/45/16
Techtonics SS exhaust
Neuspeed 8v Spark Plug Wire Set
Neuspeed P-FloGIAC Chip
35% Semi-metallic, non reflective tint

Dude! Definetely mod your 2.0 auto! It may not be as fast as the manual, but it will still be a fun car to drive. See my mods in my signature.
I'm very happy with my car. I've taken it to a few autocrosses and it's a great car to drive.
Good choices on the mods... your car will handle great, perform better and look fricken good http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

There is actually a guy down here who has a full show car (custom paint, shaved handles, roll bar, custom leather interrior, turbo pushing 8 psi) and still has an automatic. Granted, I dont suggest it, but he's hoping to do the manual swap next.
Do what makes you happy. I used to drive an automatic, and now that i have a stick, I HATE driving an automatic. Except in 5 mph stop and go LA traffic
But yeah, Keep modding your car and make yourself happy.
You may want to consider interrior next. Either upgrading to GLX leather or getting some racing seats.

Keep the stock front bar, and get the 28mm adjustable rear bar! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Modding it up or down and out.. (4NRYDE)

build it from the ground up as others would say...
suspension first!
coilovers or spring/shocks
sway bay rear and/or front or both
front/rear upper strut bars
wider/bigger tires/rims
then stuff like chip, exhaust, cam etc....
but i wouldnt suggest engine stuff yet since yours is an auto, just make it fun through the twisties first
