  1. oil change

    2.0T Turbo
    Couldn't see waiting for the manufacture 10K oil change, so I've done my first oil change at 5,000 miles. I used the VW require oil, filter element, and new drain plug. Question, why are you required to replace the drain plug ? The crush washer falls off of the drain plug when removed, couldn't...

  3. Mann oil filter

    2.0T Turbo
    I've found that Mann filter is the makers for the OEM VW filters. They are to be identical w/o VW part number and a case (10) was $99 dollars shipped. But I have a dumb question, where the F*** is the oil filter. I've seen some videos that say it's on the passenger side of motor under the top...

    skid plates My 2014 R-line convertible has what seems to be rather heavy gauge alum. plate under the front third and rear third of the under belly. Didn't notice if there is any access for oil drain in the front though.

    APR stage one Hey Indy Tom, guess what, took a drive to NGP in Lorton today. Called and found out the Stage I (no extras) for my '14 Beetle R-Line was indeed on sale for $499 (regular $599.00) and could be installed with no labor charge (OBD II port). The drive from my house was more like 115...

    2.0T Turbo
    APR upgrade Hi Indy Tom, I do love my new "Bee", handles very well, drives with a nice ride (except quick sharp bumps), and with the Borla exhaust you can have fun with the sound like a motorcycle. I don't know what's up with Valley VW, Staunton, VA. They said the ECU has to come out to be...

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Thanks Techno, the info will be nice to have. I'm going to install an 18W LED light under the rear license plate so I have a real bright light to see when backing down my long drive at night. To make it cop friendly, I'm going to interlock the power so the LED will only come on with the...

  13. Fuse Chart

    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    I've just brought a '14 R-Line Convertible, and had need to find a certain fuse. The owners manual does not show where any fuse for a specific purpose is ! Had to go to the dealer to find out where the low headlight fuse was. There's no excuse for that other than to force you to go to the dealer...
