About a year or so ago, we drove up along side the 2006 jetta on a florida highway. It had camo on the front of the car...different rims, and all of the badges had been taken off of the car. Today, we pulled into a Wendy's to get something to eat. I like to sit next to the window so I can see all the perty cars go by Embarassed . Anyways, i look at what do you know pulls in....the 2006 jetta. It was totally uncovered and had all the badges in place. A young couple gets out and walks in. I go up and ask if in fact they are driving the new Jetta. They laugh in a shocked sort of way like...how the frick does he know that. And they say yes. I asked when it came out and who they worked for. He said it would be coming out March 16th. (by the way, i thought they had a german accent..) Anyways, he said they worked for Volkswagen. They were very nice by the way. I went outside and took some pics with my new camera phone, but i can't put them on the PC until i get this stupid plan activated. I will be sure to post pics later on....and by the way, the interior is VERY nice. The car had Michigan plates on it...and i'm PRETTY sure they were going to the facility over here in Tampa for where they keep prototypes. Anyone else know another reason why they might be coming to Florida? Anyways, just thought it was an interesting story.

I think that's how VW does things...Solar is right...<p>Wasn't the next gen Touareg spotted there also?

when i was at the auto show 2 weeks ago, a gold 2006 jetta drove by, but it was probably for the auto show (there was a family or something in it for some reason though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/cwm13.gif" BORDER="0"> )

exactly, they like to put average looking couples or families to test the cars out.
