It didn't look too bad, but then again, it's didnt strike me as a typical VW design either.

I say: Poor Jetta.

And what I'm wondering about, how could somebody design that "line" between the rearbumper and sidefender?

I don't mind it I like it with just the VW badge in the middle without the chrome lines linking the surrounding grill.

Its good in that it aims to be Asian with VW qualities

looking at that insane price I think I would buy one, lower it and get more looks on a meeting than a good looking mk1 GTI or something.

for that money you can only buy something like a Fiat Panda or such.
guess there will be a 2.0 TDI?
