  1. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    Hello everyone! I am new to the VAG world. I have a lil bug with the amazing 1.8 turbo engine. I’ve been wondering if the throttle body off a on mk1 tt would fit and would it be an upgrade or is it just the same? Been wondering the same about the rear shocks and springs as well if anyone could...

    Hello there! I recently got a bug for dirt cheap and have been working on getting it back on the road. I replaced the timing belt + components, flushed the coolant, a few odds and ends, and changed the bearing and assembly on the passenger's side. After I got it back on the ground, I noticed...

  5. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Hi all, Just wondering if anyone had any leads on where I can find aftermarket ANYTHING for my 2006 2.5L 5cyl New Beetle? I’ve had my car since 2016, haven’t really been able to focus much on him but now that COVID is rampant I have a lot of down time. Haven’t had much luck in the way of...
  6. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    The nut that holds the bolt on the passenger side lower front of the control arm broke loose. Result is terrible tread wear such that after 3 weeks I need new front tires! Has anyone ever repaired this nut by welding back to frame/body or other method. No one will do a wheel alignment until...

    Any advice on new suspension for a very rough ride? I don't mind spending some money, but expect a good ride.
  8. 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...
  9. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    My wife bought an '02 Turbo S Beetle. Found out the hard way that the schmuck who owned the car before us had the passenger side control arm mounted to the cross member with a welded in bolt. Found a replacement cross member part but I'd like to find a how-to on removing and replacing before I...

  12. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    Just redid my entire suspension and had a shop press in my TT/R32 CA bushings. They did a major hack job on them! The front bushing was fine but the rears were horrible. Chewed up on the rubber flanges and on one side, both arms, the flange did not even exit the cylinder. What effect if any will...

  15. Technical Modifications
    Alrighty, I know that NBs and GTIs are practically the same platform-wise, and often times you can swap struts/dampers/springs between the two. I have an opportunity to get a deal Koni sport kit (Koni Yellows, Koni Sport Springs; ~40mm drop) that came off of a VR6 GTI. Here's how the parts...
  16. 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...
