    My 2003 Beetle with the 1.8t engine and manual transmission screams whenever I put my foot down. This mp3 file consists of me flooring it in 2nd gear, screaming, shifted up to 3rd gear and floored it, screaming. It's not just those gears, it works in 4th and 5th as well. (I don't know about...

  5. Questions, Issues or Problems with the New Beetle
    My New Beetle is displaying an icon I don't know, and isn't on any of the icon charts I can find online. I think it may be related to the retractable spoiler, but that seems to be popping up and dropping down at the right speeds. Anyways, here's the icon: This is on a 2003 "Color Concept"...

  11. 1.8 Liter Turbo
    SEE VIDEO: I have taken my beetle to several mechanics and none of them have been able to diagnose this. I'm assuming it's because they don't know enough about this engine, so I'm hoping someone on the forum can help me out. I was recommended to replace the diverter valve (which I did) but it...

    Howdy folks! I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I am new to this forum, but not VW's, although this will be my first watercooled. Last spring I sold my 65' Beetle, much to my son's dismay. Since he will be soon driving, I have been on the lookout for a "newish-oldish" Bug as he has...
