It redlines at 6300.
I was thinking of adding the iPod adapter but decided to save on my monthly payment. Figured I would just use the AUX port. But now I have my XM connected to the AUX port so the iPod adapter is looking like a must have now. I could hookup my iPhone since it is the same connector.

wow. i didn't realize the 08's were on dealer lots!
i guess tmttuning.com is the way to go; i'm all for the lowest carpayment possible!

I just put my deposit down, with 5k down including my trade in, im looking at 235 a month. I drove an auto one and was not thrilled. But i imagine the manual will be better if they can ever find me one in United grey 2 doors and stick. I drove the jetta in stick and loved it. Now i hear the 08 Jetta has a 6 speed... not cool. haha Yeah i was hoping i could mod the car a little bit...

I just had my windows tinted on my 2007 4-door Rabbit and I must say, it really makes the car look sharp. 9 months and 11,000 miles and loving my Rabbit.

Just got my '08 2dr red Rabbit a week ago. I love this car but there is only one thing I miss that I have in my Jetta- is an armrest. Does anyone know where I can get one for the Rabbit?

A new iPod adaptor is coming out that also has a USB port for thumbdrives. Won't come out until the end of the summer or for 2009. This unit actually treats it as an iPod. Full integration and no 100 song limit and CD changer stuff.
#24 of 26 Aftermarket steering wheel w/audio controls for '07 Rabbit???
Feb 26, 2007 (8:19 pm)
Does anyone know if an '07 GTI of Jetta steering wheel with audio controls can be added to and '07 Rabbit? Not sure if the right connections are available on my 4-door that has 6-disk changer stereo.

If you go to vwvortex.com you can look up in their rabbit/gti forums, you can find a step by step (with pictures) way to do it. The jetta gli wheel will fit, as will the gti since they are the same wheel. I think that there is a way to get it to work with the audio controls fully functional, but i also know that some people just like the feel of the wheel and kept it off.
The wheel itself is a bit expensive and i would never attempt it myself, i'm not good at that kind of stuff, and if you are anything like me, you will have the added cost of having to have someone else do it for you.
I went to the vw dealer in asheville, where we purchased our rabbit, recently to look at some jetta tdi's just out of curiosity and i noticed that they have the same exact steering wheel as in our rabbit, but it is leather wrapped AND has audio controls. Maybe this would be a cheaper alternative? That is the route i (and may) would go.
Hope this helps!

yes with any problem.I put a gti steering wheel to my vw rabbit 2008.
If you want a oem gti steering wheel go to tmtuning.com but my steering is from ebay and is a oem part.Fit all 2006 07 08 rabbit, jetta.
And is not expensive.... i pay with installation 650$.If you go to a vw dealer you gonna spend 1000$ just for the steering without installation and steering controls.
If you want see my rabbit with the gti steering go to www.cardomain.com.and look for Bigvic27 vw rabbit 2008 you gonna see pictures with the steering..
