There is just something that is truly unique about seeing one of these new Jetta’s sitting like this. I was convinced this car wasn’t going to look good lowered at all, but once I saw this beauty my opinion changed. We got the chance to ask the owner (Ryan Beard) some questions to learn more about his Jetta”
V2: What are your goals for this car / next mods
RB: I have alot of planning going into the car. I do plan on reupholstering the rear seats to match the Bride seats up front. Notching the frame is in the near future and I will be changing out the wheels until I get the right fitment and look that I’m going for. As performance mods become available for my model I will be venturing into power, but for now, stance is my main priority.
V2: What made you go with the air ride route?
RB: After I owned the car for about 3 months I saw 01′s debut on VWVortex. I immediately knew that’s what I wanted, Air ride not only looks great but is also very practical. The roads in Virginia aren’t very friendly so coilovers and springs were out of the picture to begin with.
V2: Favorite thing about your car
RB: My new CCW LM-20′s are definitely my favorite aspect of the car. The Bride seats and Bagriders suspension are definitely runner ups.
V2: How long do you plan on keeping the car
RB: I’m financing the car, so at least 6 years. I hope to keep this car for a very long time. I have alot in store for it and I plan to finish it.
