    Default Is it a 99 Wolfsburg Jetta or a 98 jetta?

    Hello Guys,
    The Newb here trying to get some info about his ride.

    After beating it down . I really fell in love with the car now I want to restore it.

    First by getting the information i need.
    Is my car really a 99 or 98 VW JETTA WOLFSBURG edition or did some one just stuck the label in the back? (note: it is registered as a 99 But then again you never know)



    here is what I have

    RED Jetta (of course the reason for my forum name)
    manual 5 speed
    4door
    2.0 (gas)

    any more info needed to verify. let me know or just point me in the right direction

    I'm on my phone and can't really see your avatar but it looks like mk3 so I'd say it'll be 98. Post some pics and we will tell you for sure. You can also call the dealer and check what your VIN has to tell you.
    I'm not totally useless, I can be used as a bad example...

    Now that I look at it the front bumper seems to stick out a bit but he coulda been mistaken and just said a 99 instead of 99.5 just sayin
