Hi!

I'm quite a newbie to Beetles, but here it goes.

I got hold of a '05 Beetle Cabriolet, black with tan top, and I would like to show you some photos of it.

I found out, after seeing a hand full of used Beetles, that the headlights tend to open (the seal is broken).
So I really need to swap it, and I was thinking of putting this ones:

https://www.dectane.de/HEADLIGHTS/Headlights-VW/headlights-VW-Beetle-97-05--chrome.html

Didn't found any pictures of a Beetle with it yet! :(

And finally I would love to change the bonnet and trunk logo (to chrome ones, not a sticker like the ones I have now). Can you guide me to where can I order such an item?

Thanks for your time, and wishes of a really good 2012 to all!
Bye!
A2day

I've realize it now, that this NBC is even rarer... it has the 1.4 litre engine... how (not) cool is that?

I think it will still be a very nice car to own!
And in fact, Beetle is ALWAYS cool ;)

Old aircooled Beetles can survive with 25 HP (ok, they are not so heavy) quite all right...:p

In my opinion, it is mainly a question about having a right attutude of driving :) Smile & happy kilometres!

PS. nice new pics!

I will for SURE. I'm also a forum person. I believe sharing experience can assist everybody to take the most out of our cars. I've created a couple of car clubs/forums myself, so I know how important it is to share and help.

Looking forward to expand my participation (next Wednesday I will fill the topic with photos!!!!) ;)

Cheers,
A2day

One day away to take the Cabrio home...

Who would know, 30 years ago, that this kid was going to own a Beetle Cabrio...

The "bug" is here!!!!

Finally! It was a really long day, so, no time for good photos (only mobile ones) to save the moment for posterity!

I keep the "bug" well escorted by his younger brother, the Golf Variant (or Jetta Sportwagen, in US). :)

Looking forward to go outside, take to top down and also some photos! (it was sunny and 20 degrees today.... that's 68 F... in January... I don't know if it Global, but its warming for sure!)

Cheers,
A2day

Looking good A2day! I wish you would send some of that warm weather here to me in the US (Tennessee). It's not been above 40 degrees in several days.
