Dubbin’ in South Florida.
There’s a certain look that many Volkswagen enthusiasts aka “Dubbers” want to achieve the low, “euro” style. This MkVI Volkswagen Jetta GLI takes that to the next level with its slammed stance, Niche Wheels, tuned engine, and booming sound system. If you want presence and power, this “dub” has it in spades.
Under the hood of the Volkswagen Jetta GLI sits a potent 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine that isn’t found in your standard, run-of-the-mill Jetta. The force-fed engine was given a new Unitronic KO4 turbocharger, new intake, and Turboback exhaust, and intercooler system. That’s good enough to send power through the roof as they spin the front Niche Wheels.
That was only part of the equation. The MkVI Jetta GLI was slammed so hard, onlookers scream “damn!” The centerpiece of the setup is a new Airlift Performance air suspension with Accuair E Level making sure things are riding right. The new Niche Wheels fit perfectly as they are tucked beneath the front and rear fenders whilst the underbody is barely touching the pavement.
Next up was a new set of Niche Wheels. Here, the Niche Misano M116 were chosen for their Euro-look design that matches perfectly with the aftermarket German style. The Misano M116 wheels were each installed in a 19 x 8.5 front and rear setup with 225/35/19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports tires that are never short on grip. Visually, the Jetta GLI also boasts a new set of Euro Code bi-xenon headlights and other body work from Jorda Donnelly.
Inside, performance comes in the form of sound waves. The factory audio system was swapped out with JL Audio CR650 front and rear components, a Slash v2 300/3 amplifier, and a 13TW5 subwoofer that’s powered up by a Flash v2 500/1 amplifier.
South Florida is the home of this GLI and you can bet that it will be rolling low, fast, and loud.
