    Hello Forum! I just picked up a 2002 New Beetle GLS(I think by vin search). Odometer says 290k, but the engine looks pristine, new even. Seller said nothing of engine swap so I have no info on it. That's my second order of business after I chase down a AC system leak and a possible coolant...

  13. Blue and White Emblems

    Marketplace Archives
    I found a place online that sells the emblems but the rear emblem is a full $25 more than the front. I have a 2002 without the flip-away emblem hiding the key lock back there. Is there any way I could order two front emblems and put one of them in the back? Is there any size difference?
