The car looks almost black in this photo.
Changing to a dark hood to an already dark vehicle probably won't look very good at all.

Just match the paint. If you paint it black it won't look right. At last to me. It just sort of looks like you just picked up a hood at the jy when the colors different like that.

^^ Ditto! I was thinking the same thing. Red hood with a white trunk. Ugh!
I would have the whole car sanded and repainted IMO.

ya it does and looks like crap. It costs way to much to have it painted even to have the crappy maco job. duplicolor makes a spray but its only in 5oz cans and you have to special order it so it gets expensive just wish she had gotten a cheap color
thanks for the advice

My gf has a Jetta too. It's an 06 with the 6 cylinder sport package. It doesn't have a lot of torque, but if you get on it in higher speed it will accelerate like crazy. Great car IMO, but the damn parts are high as a giraffes ass.
