Jenn Prentice’s 2005.5 Volkswagen Jetta

Not everyone can understand and truely comprehend the “Euro” scene because car stylings can range from the totally outrageous to the impeccably gorgeous. Dubbers are some of the most devoted car enthusiasts in the world. Volkswagen enthusiasts not only love their cars, they live the lifestyle.

Wanting a Jetta thats show and go, Jenn decided to keep her build clean and sleek. She started by swapping her factory body styling for an OEM Volkswagen Votex Body Kit and a GTI Grill. To further emphasize her Jetta’s black exterior, she added smoked tail lights, smoked bumper lights, smoked mirror turn signals and custom paint matched headlight eyelids. More subtle yet beautiful accents, that only true volkswagen enthusiasts would appreciate, are the chrome mirror housings and the angel eye headlights. Lastly, Jenn added 45% window tint to finish the stealth look of her Jetta.

With the majority of the exterior modified, Jenn decided to tackle the interior by adding a carbon fiber dash kit, a leather shift boot with silver pinstriping and a leather arm rest. Jenn decided she wanted something more than the lackluster factory monsoon system so she opted for a 7″ Eclipse DVD Navigation System that provides her with audio, video and XM Radio. She also had a custom subwoofer enclosure built into the trunk which houses two bass thumping 12″ Alpine Type-R Subwoofers and an Audiobahn A8002T Amplifier.

Although the new MKV model hosts a multitude of improvements from the MKIV model, Jenn knew that her Jetta could be better and badder. To increase power output from her 2.5L engine, Jenn installed an E.I.P. Tuning Stage 2 Chip, E.I.P. Tuning 2.5″ Catback Exhaust System and ABD Racing Air Intake System. She finished off her engine bay with a customer paint matched engine cover.

The typical 59/41 weight distribution on front wheel drive cars leaves much to be desired from the Jetta’s handling. Jenn went with a neuspeed rear sway bar to keep the rear planted and a set of KW Variant 2 (V2) Coilovers which provides a lower ride height and firmer shock dampening. Jenn scrapped the factory wheels for some sweet 18″ Privat Netz wheels with custom painted black face and chrome lip. She also replaced the stock Michelins with some Kumho 711 225/40/18 tires to keep her Jetta stuck to the blacktop.

Jenn’s performance parts choices and subtle styling has allowed her Jetta to place first and second in a number of car shows including Waterfest, Waterama and H20. All in all, we love what we see and we have to admit that there is nothing hotter than a girl who has a passion for cars and knows how to mod them!

  1. I have 2008 Volkswagen Jetta and I want to make changes to my car. This jetta is one of the best jetta’s I’ve ever seen. The black modification to front lights really changed the front look of the jetta. really marvelous.

  2. I really like your car. I just purchased a 2007 Wolfsburg Jetta 2.5L. I would like to mod it but I have been having trouble finding suppliers to order from. In particular I would like to know where to get the angel eye conversion. How does the car sound after the ABD modifications? Is there any noticable difference in power without the flash? Thanks and again the car looks awesome!
