    My wife and I ordered one in Silver for our first brand new car. Took 3 months to arrive and was about the only silver one around. This was just before EVERYTHING started being silver, including my '01 A4 and our next brand new car…a 2008 silver Wolfsburg Edition Jetta (mit DSG).

    That '98 5-speed was a fantastic car…fun to drive, reliable, stylish and a Huge Trunk.

    This car (in silver) was my first new car as well, back in 98. All the looks of the VR6 but none of the oomph, unfortunately. Still, a couple grand of subsidized student loan cash, thrown at the Neuspeed catalog, and it was at least a little lower and louder, if not necessarily faster (cold air intake and “chip”, anyone?). And since it was Miami, the Jetta ‘burg got plenty of love. After graduation I turned it in for an e46 330ci and can’t honestly say I regret it, since that was later turned into a Four door ZHP…then an e92 with the N54…and so on. But it was that 1998 Jetta Wolfsburg that started the chain.

      I dig. I was making a princely $24k at the time, and the Jetta was $17.5k new. It felt like quite a luxury. I replaced it in 2004 with the '01 A4 2.8 at which time I really felt princely!

      I imagine someone is getting a fine vehicle if they buy the one described above. I'd consider it for my daughter, if she hadn't already appropriated by wife's '08 silver Jetta Wolfsburg. Lucky for me she doesn't tend to take advantage of the 2.0 turbo and DSG like I would have at age 19!
