so i was driving around after some party on saturday, and sheppard was totally empty
so i come to a red light, and this teenager pulls up in a silver jetta with his girlfriend (pretty hot too *th-up* )
anyways, i rev it just for fun, and so does he.... i knew it didnt sound like a stock jetta, so i asked him and he said it was t/charged, even though it was the GLS (i think)... then he told me its an automatic...
well we raced anyways, i was in front the whole time...
Bayview to Yonge in 20 seconds! we went 170 or something and then he told me he saw a cop... so i gave the thumbs up and made a turn
nothing special, but it was fun still

Which generation or year was the Jetta?
Sounds like a Jetta 1.8T. You can always hear the turbo spooling from those KKK-03's.

my co-worker has a '01 or '02 Jetta 1.8T we raced before after he just put in a chip and it was dead even, he couldn't launch it at that time from a standing so we had to do a rolling start. now he has some other stuff done to it as well, and i dont even wanna try it heheh cuz i know he's gonna kill me now.

it was 2000-2003
but it wasnt as fast as a 1.8T supposed to be... cause i raced it once
and instead of 1.8T, he put Turbo badge on the back

Here's two brand new jetta's. The one in the red had the turbo badge...he beat the black one. They were both standard....They were getting High 14's and low 15's on the 1/4 mile.

Nope, but I've seen tons on the road and the ones with the Otteinger kits look very nice!

Oh you mean tuned by VW and not aftermarket right?

In that case, I saw the R32 looks really nice as a car coming right from the factory!

those were stock and doing high 14's ??? Not possible...should be doing like 16-17 1/4mile

Um 16-17 seconds for 1/4mile?
Even a stock 5th generation prelude with an auto transmission gets 16-17s, around there.

I do not think the 1.8T Jetta's/Golf's are that slow. If you visit the VW forums you'll see proof that it can do high 14s to low-mid 15s STOCK. They have timeslips and don't tell me they're fake.

That sounds about right, actually completely stock a 1.8T should do 15.3 or 15.4 with only a chip it should do 14.8-14.9...

Not bad for a Jetta.
