    I like the frontal aggressive styling. This is just a illustration.....



    Still can’t beat the romance, or sleek Flare, of the older Alfa designs. The vehicles of 50’s and 60’s

    heres what I am thinking again
    1. upgade the lights (headlights)
    2. upgade the radio
    3. add rear parking sensors? how much is parts (I found VW ones for $250) labor and paint?
    4. New tires I am looking for a gran touring all season that would be more grip, but also last about 30-60k miles. I was thinking about perlli P7 I or II or Preimiers.

    I have also gotten this questions from a salesmen "if you are looking to trade in your car so soon, why did you get it?"

    at the time I had a nicer car and had to offload it So I didnt have much money to get something nice. Now I do so
    Hi Joe,

    The headlights would depend on how much of an upgrade you want to do. You can just get brighter bulbs reasonably priced - well under $100, or there are more expensive HID conversions, A couple of hundred dollars is a reasonable budget, but it depends on your needs and what's available for the Jetta. I would check out the VW specialists to see your options.

    Radio? The sky is the limit. Best suggestion is to check out Crutchfield and pick out a system. They have everything including good directions and pretty much everything else to do an upgrade.
    https://www.crutchfield.com/

    Rear park sensors? Have no idea. I'm old school and turn my head. It's much cheaper. LOL I'd think they'd cost a decent amount of money to integrate into a car. Maybe even more than it's worth, but you seem to have a price from VW, but I don't know what that includes or if it's a kit? $250 for an upgrade you like isn't too much, but if that's just the parts than it's another thing. If a shop has to modify a bumper and paint and rewire the car, you are looking at bucks. You have to get estimates at a couple of body shops for that.

    New tires can be bought from a place like Tire Rack. I would think $5-600 would get you a good set.

    My dealer sent a message, how they are changing their service.

    They'll pick up your car w/in 60 miles, for servicing. They wipe down a car before servicing and after. If you come by, they have a big showroom (distancing). New and used car sales, they bring it to the potential purchaser for test drives. If you choose to purchase/trade, they do paperwork on the phone (if you prefer) and will drop your new car and pick up your trade. That's quite a change from 16 months ago, where I spent 4 hours in the dealership doing paperwork.

    I noticed Tesla is closing their salons and selling only online. Maybe they set the car on self drive and let it deliver itself? I've joked that I wanted an autonomous car so I could send it for a pizza.

    The service technicians work on 100’s of vehicle. The gopher individual that picks your car too. Spread the virus. No one, can wipe down every crevice of the inside of an automobile. Someone sneezes coughs with the virus. Inside your car. The disease can adheres to everything. It can stay on surfaces for hours, even days. Cloth, plastic, glass, leather, metal etc. No one needs to have there vehicle service that bad at the moment. Buy a car either. Stay home, save your life, and others. If you been infective

    I've got to agree mate. i wouldn't trust the lowest paid grease monkey that does oil changes to wipe down my car either. id go pick it up wearing gloves @ have bleach wipes at the ready so I can be satisfied its been wiped correctly lol

    Everyone already has been infected. It has been here since at least October. Current testing only shows if you have active virus now, not if you had it in the past and got over it. At this point, you are either immune or sick. Deaths are falling, hospitalizations will start falling within the next two to three days.

    It is time to get back to work.
