Ask It: 2009 Banks Power Sidewinder VW Jetta TDI


Tuesday, October 6, 2009

We at Winding Road are big fans of the idea of performance-oriented green cars, and the folks at Banks Power have teamed up with the Robert Bosch Corporation to create something really cool. This "Sidewinder Jetta" takes a standard Jetta TDI sedan and boosts the level of driver involvement by adding better front and rear stabilizer bars, sport springs, a ram-air intake, and an in-car computer where the driver can control different levels of performance. Oh, and there's an oh-so-subtle graphics package, too.

We named it "Bruce." And like Mr. Springsteen, one could say that this is The Boss of Jetta TDIs.

Post whatever questions you have about the Sidewinder and we'll do our best to respond. Also, be sure to stay tuned for the full review coming in the not-so-distant future.
