    New Beetle Convertible
    Hi Everyone, New guy on the forum, not new to the scene though. My mom's car is a 2003 Convertible Beetle. She had a stroke back in March, so the car has been sitting. I took it out one time and all hell broke loose. First, the passenger side window regulator jammed, and the window...

This basically leaves two gaps where I can see the actual top of the beetle. As reupholstering is not an option, does anyone have any...
  5. Hard top for NBC?

    Styling Modifications
    I'm sure that I'm not the only one who has thought of this but, being from Northern climes I was thinking that it might be cool to have a removeable hard top option for my NBC.

    Hi, I have a 2005 NB Cabrio, the other day the roof went down but didn't finish with the chime and refused to go back up.
