Hey guys,
Thanks for all of your help with colors and stuff... (I'm a newbie to the forum and VW)... ordered my GLS 1.8t Platinum Gray Jetta today... leather and monsoon... I can't wait to see it.. Got a decent deal (I think) of $22,300 plus taxes
my first car... now I just gotta wait for it to come in

Congrats on the new car
Just did the same myself today. Same color minus the leather can't wait to see it in person and see what the new wheels are like. Have you seen any pics yet?

Re: Ordered my 2003 today (tazz27)

Thank you!!

I saw a Beetle pic with the same color, and that is what sold me on the color. Also saw the pics of the Jetta that was in a dealership awhile ago (the most profitable dealership in the U.S. or something).. You can see pics here, but I think they are discolored a bit from the showroom lights. http://www.quickvws.com/Plat_jetta.html
I've seen the "new" wheels. I am no expert, but they are pretty similar (5 spoke).. maybe a little more defined for lack of a better word. I think comparing the 2, I do like the new ones a little better, but it's not all that different. My dealer had 2003 models on the lot to show me the wheels... they shouldn't be too hard to find.
Congrats on your car as well tazz27

What colors are available for the interior ?
Is it true that VW got rid of gray leather for 2003 ? Seems like something you would want with a Platinum Gray exterior !

Re: Ordered my 2003 today (dagwood)

I'm not sure about the gray leather. I didn't want the 2 tone interior, so I jsut asked for black... my dealer said something to the effect of that's probably the only way I could probably get it, so maybe you're right.

Thanks for the pic that looks pretty sweet looks like the right choice. I had a black 99 previously but wanted a change. Also thanks for the info on the wheels.

Re: Ordered my 2003 today (samc)

thanks all.
I don't know about the mods, I am stretching it with just buying the car itself. Maybe someday.
Tazz, did you see this pic of the beetle in the same color? It's what sold the color for me.

OMG I hope not...those are hideous http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
They should stick with what works instead of changing for the lack of change...
BTW Amanda, Platinum Gray is by far the nicest color available in the VW line IMHO...I only wish it were available when I bought my car last year!
