...a CC, a Passat TDI, and dozens of Corvairs, Porsches and a TDI AUdi, we just bought our third and best new Beetle - a 2006 2.5 convertible. So far it's a great improvement in every respect over our former four cylinder non-turbo, and present turbo. Both four cylinder models had tranny problems that VW couldn't resolve, and too complicated top mechanisms. This one is black with black top and interior. We'll be replacing the top with burgandy and the interior with black and red. So far, we LOVE it! Quite a pleasant change from our 2000 Corvette. had to replace a couple of switches, use DieselFreak's door handle repair kit, polish the headlight lenses, you know: the usual stuff. Can't wait til Spring! The 04 red turbo convertible will be for sale as soon as it warms up enough for me to repair the rear window. Cam belt was done ten thousand miles ago.
