Double check on what type of clip your wiper has, For my 2014 model i ordered twice online and checked several spare part stores but the attachment was always different, In the end i had to buy it from VW itself, I say check your spare part stores nearby, Avoid buying online.

Hi !

I imported it from Amazon. Quality is excellent but expensive. You will need 19 and 24 inches blades. 😊

Get the right size wiper from any local shop. Just remove the rubber and replace only the rubber. Thats what i have done with both my cars.

It does take some time to remove and put it back, but hey there is no easy way to save money

Please give it a try at 3M store for frame less wipers, they're relatively new in the market. Got them changed on my Scross during a recent visit. For reference and size specification of wipers please see post #89 in the below link.

I imported the same for Aug 2014 Jetta during last July, works better than OEM blades. Highly recommended.

Hi Chethan - looks like you and your Jetta are both having fun!

I need to upgrade HU in my Dec '14 CL Jetta to a touchscreen unit. I'll only consider OEM products for this (same look and feel, quality etc), though I am fine getting a Chinese manufactured one. Is there any latest and greatest one that'll fit our Jetta? - the last I am aware in the MIB II unit, but seems a bit passť now.

Advise?

Check the chinese one. DS811 or something. They are very good for what they offer. Personally the sound from RCD510 is superior IMHO to the chinese one. But the chinese one offers way better functionality than the plain jane RCD510.

RCD 330G - its an OEM unit (comes on new vento's etc). MIB2 is almost impossible to retrofit in older cars.

Hello Abhi,

Thank you!! I am enjoying for sure!! 😄

I would recommend RCD510 if you don't bother about additional features. Very good AQ.. It is quite cheap and available in the used market also..direct fit..

If you need additional features like Navigation, as VW2010 has suggested, DS811 is good. I think our Bhpian Graaja has it on his Polo or Jetta.. please check his ownership thread for details.. 😊

Just fitted RCD 330+ couple of days back on my 2011 Jetta comfortline. The unit is manufactured by Desey China and it has good color reproduction and touch response. You wont believe but the stock HU in my Jetta - RCD 300 is also manf by same Desey and its made in China.

The new one as per the seller is removed from a brand new VW car.

Thumbs up Re: VW Jetta 2.0 TDI HL MT - Now with Bilsteins and Pete's Remap!

Update: ODO @ 80K Kms - Oil change service.

Regular oil change service was carried out. All filters were replaced. Brake pads still has life in it and so was not replaced. Tyres still has about 5K Kms of thread in it (above the tyre wear indicator). Therefore, this service was just half a days job! with the total bill coming to just about 11.6K !!

As usual, Service experience at KPR cars Mysore, was delightful !

It has been approximately 40K Kms after Jetta was remapped. Car drives like a charm!
