You are in the Volkswagen Jetta
What is this discussion about?
Volkswagen Jetta, Sedan
#1 of 64 2008 Jetta Wolfsburg brochure

Did VW print one??? Does such a brochure exist??? The 08 Jetta brochure lists the S, SE, and the SEL models. No Wolfsburg edition.

When I bought my 2008 Wolfsburg the info for '08 was gone, got a '09 brochure and you're right, you will not find Wolfsburg Edition mentioned anywhere. I'm told they only make 12,000 a year, still why it isnt mentioned is anyones guess.
Someone mentioned that they took a Jetta SE trim, replaced the 5 cyl with the 4 cyl turbo, and they seem to be right. A fun car without the cost, or looks of the GLI.

I agree.....lots of fun, great car.

I agree it's a great car and a blast to drive. I am just looking for some specifics on the 09 Wolfsburg. For instance what do they called the 14 spoke wheels that came on the '08 Wolf? What is the finish?? Silver, bright silver?? That kind of info has to be out there somewhere.

If you find it, let me know......it will be greatly appreciated. I drove the Wolfsburg (reflex silver so it says) and loved it. The ride was a bit too firm but the 2.0 egine is superb.
I asked the salesperson what differences there were between a regular Jetta and the W edition---why is there no chrome on the doors(makes it look like a base Jetta) if the brakes had been upgraded, etc.
I was told that it is an exact Jetta except for the engine and the 17" wheels.
My salesperson asked if i would like a brochure, and I jumped at the oppurtunity of finding out more about this car. The brochure was 6 pages of info about the Sportwagen with the 2.5 engine, which does not interest me at all.
I have been all over the VW site..nothing. It's as if this car doesn't exist. Also...have you checked out KBB resale for this car?
I punched in a 2008 Wolfsburg Edition, gave it all the extras I could think of, and...whoah!!!!
The depreciation on this car is incredible...I still don't understand why..
Any information you--or others here--have will be greatly appreciated.

I apologize for most of my previous post, which asks some questions that seem to have already been answered. (For some reason, I just didn't see them when I posted.)
Somebody just tell me to buy a VW Wolfsburg
And honestly....the VW Jetta threads are a mess!!

Personally, I hate when cars have that chrome around the windows. Actually, I pretty much hate all chrome on cars.
Anyway, maybe VW's idea is deleting it gives it more of a "sporty" look, rather than the "luxury" look of chrome???
#9 of 64 buy the Wolf lol

There someone told ya!
As far as depreciation I'm told VW is second only to Mercedes, what did it say for resale?
AFAIK they make Wolfs every year, why so secretive, I dont know, but I can tell you if you do buy it you will love it, so much stuff standard for the money, and way too much fun!!!!

KBB gives a 2008 Wolfsburg with only 5k miles a worth of about 12.5k.
I've never gotten KBB on any trade, so I am assuming it's lower in the real world.
I have no idea why depreciation on this model is so steep.
