    Thanks everyone!
  2. What did you do for your beetle today?

    The New Beetle Experience
    I drove Stinker to work today like I always do. It has been over 100 around here too and my right turn signal was acting weird but now is back to normal. Th heat may be a culprit, or just age.
  3. Bicycle Rack/carrier for 1999 NB

    Not sure about 2013 diesels but my old 1999 NB gets 46-50 mpg consistently and depending on traffic. Mine are mostly freeway miles and we go about 128 miles per day to work and back. I am approaching 300,000 miles. Good luck and post pictures when you get your new new Beetle!
