2000 VW Jetta

ok...so i have my first car and it's amazing. i really love my jetta, it runs smooth, and it's a five-speed. but i'd like to, uh, trick it out a little.

any ideas for how to make it go any faster and look any nicer?

who makes the best body kits for jettas?

how much should all of this cost me?

advice would be appreciated...my car is going to be my project for a while.

What's wrong with "made in Mexico"? There are some Nissan cars made in Mexico too and they are great cars.

Why the hell does that matter?
They use the same parts, experience, tools, etc.

You could fit it with a turbocharger and inercooler, remus tailpipe those 2.0 vw engines are pretty tough and you coud draw about 200bhp if you put 6000 dolars into it.
