And I've been driving a Jetta for my last year of college. Once I get something a little more track worthy, I'll be headed back soon.
Take the Jetta out! I have taken some crazy shit to the track, last weekend I drove an Infiniti FX50 (their v8 powered suv) at the track

Haha that's awesome! I love the FX. Such a cool looking SUV. But I don't think I'm gonna take the Jetta out. Its 5 cylinders of fury aren't all that peppy. It's still a dog lol. I actually have a lot of complaints about the MK6 Jetta. No IRS. Rear DRUM brakes. I don't remember the Jetta having drums. Ever. The gearbox...is the notchiest gearbox I have ever driven. The clutch is horrendous. So soft. Feels very inconsistent, lets out super high (at least a solid 4" of dead travel) and there's little to no feel in the pedal. If I could go back to the day I bought the car, I would have bought it in an auto. And I'm a die hard MT guy.

I never have. Doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. My feeling is your hard work is your thank you card.
