But....make the dealer take off that sticker on the rear hatch! :mad:

when looking over your sholder backing up on to a road there is serious blind spots,and very hard to see out of when backing up.just woundering if the new ones are the same,as they look the same the rear pillars are way to wide.

Nice looking car though.

Congratulations! Awesome Bug :)

Tornado red is my favorite color, also Disc-rims are cool :cool:

Enjoy your Beetle!!

PS. if I could afford, I would buy similar Beetle with Fender sound system. I would change only the engine; I prefer 1,2 TSI, because the gasoline is so expensive here (1,58€/litre = 2,00$/litre = 7,6$/gallon) :(

Is an extended rear view mirror an option?
Not on the option list in Europe.

This would rock with a pano roof! Excellent choice of wheels :cool:

There is a blind spot caused by the rear headrests. Since I have never had a rear seat passenger and probably won't, I removed the rear headrests (super easy) and it improved rear visibility 100%. I also installed a wider and slightly curved inside rear view mirror (clips right over the existing one-available at any auto parts store) and it helped rear vision a lot as well.

Welcome to the org and welcome to the Beetle family! Maybe we'll see you at a Colorado get together this summer! There's also the VW race and show at Bandimere in August. We would love to meet you and your bug. :)
