    Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    My two rear tires are starting to have a bit of negative camber and I've been told that it is probably time I replace the rear shocks and front struts. Thing is I don't know if I want to buy them from VW or similar OEM quality. I'm looking to reduce the body roll in my car just a bit, even...

    1.9 Liter TDI
    Own an '05 tdi with 75,000 mi. Owned it since brand new. I had a '99 before that and the suspension on that was just really hard and horrible. When I bought this TDI I remember the test drive and I couldn't believe how smooth the suspension was. Now 75,000 miles later I feel like I'm driving the...
