  1. Buying a pink bug

    New Beetle Convertible

  8. INSANELY good gas mileage - should I worry?

    2.0 Liter Gas
    I have gotten that kind of mileage out of my '01 2.0. Sounds like she is purring like a kitten.

    For air cooled talk there is always the Middle Tennessee Volkswagen Club. They meet monthly @ Piccadilly on Murfreesboro Rd, MTVWC Home. I know of an air cooled graveyard not too far from Shelbyville on Hwy 271 between Farmington & Belfast (I believe the intersection is Gold Rd). For NB's I...

    The New Beetle Experience
    I was able to test drive one myself last night. Turbo automatic. It was pretty dang nice. Lots of pickup & feels solid.
