TL;DR: Boyfriend had to close, I have vodka and wifi.

True story bro. I don't even like Jetta's and I think Tim's car is pretty badass.

Aaaand it doesn't have a wimpy 2.0T. It has a VR6.

Don't read a book by it's cover... or a Jetta by it's "cavalier" exterior.

Then **** yeah. The AWD really does make all the difference. Ig it's an R32 swap it the Jetta a MKIV or MKV?

And a cummins turbo? As in one off of their Diesel engines? I'm really intrigued about that decision. Not saying its a bad one, just that I've never even heard of that before.

Generally don't, but it's been one of those weeks where I've had fifty people tell me their "corolla/a4/accord/etc" handles like a sportscar. At some point my brain exploded.

As much as I love the VR6, I will defend the current gen of the 2.0t. I don't think it's wimpy at all - it's in Audis entire lineup and they're tuning it for 220 stock. That paired with AWD is a formidable combination. You can tune it to the low 300s safely, so that it has as much power as a stock S4. And if you swap a bigger turbo on it, it's delightful. As long as you don't mind turbo lag.

Edit: search YouTube for remapped TTSs to see what I mean. I think they're plenty fast stock, though, especially using launch control.

I was just going off of the tune of your original post that there is nothing impressive about the 2.0T.

I adored my VR6, never have had a huge spot for 2.0T. Now turbo that VR6? Good effing lord that is pretty much amazing.

My fiance traded an AMG for our wrangler... not saying I've completely forgiven him, but the wrangler does make me feel pretty badass. It's on 35" tires with rock bars & a winch & I'm fairly confident it will get out of any situation I can get it into. Also it can run over cars like a tank.

bwahahaha, nice. I like the quote "I drive a Jeep. The world is my parking lot"

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which I love, but I really want a Wrangler. Plus, Wranglers hold their value a hell of a lot better than the Grand Cherokees. Which makes it difficult to get out of the ZJ and into a TJ.
