After 15 years of owning a New Beetle, I am now the proud owner of a Toffee Brown 2013 Beetle 2.5. WOW!!

Her name is Chino, short for Mochaccino. I picked Her up on Friday, July 24th- Three days ago at the time of this post. Cup, my 2000 beetle (still have her)has too many fixes to remain a daily. Chino is now the girl, while Cup gets restored.

I've driven a rental Beetle a few years back and loved it. However, I don't recall them having so much spunk. Shes an automatic, and she really launches and finds her happy place in 2nd.

There's plenty time for jibba jabba later. Right now here's pics of Chino's first photo shoot.

Here's Chino, off lot and on the way home. Wanted to snap a few quick pics to share with my friends :D

I took pics of Cup at the following building. I never got back to shoot the rest of the building. Guess it was meant to be that Chino take over and pose for the rest :p

Location: off of Stockton St.- Jacksonville, FL

nice bug you got there can't wait to see more of chino. And by the way in a about a year or so I will be joining the 2012+ beetle club myself and my next Bug will be called the black swag short for Volkswagen and it will be black as my current one I recently made the decision just this past week that I will make that transition as well. Any plans with Chino?

Congrats on the new purchase Al. Nice pictures as well. I'm sure Chino and Cup will get along just fine taking turns with you. So, where's the list of mods to come?

Fantastic!

Beautiful Beetle Al! I have always loved the chocolate Beetles! I would put a huge "M" on the side as I love brown M&Ms!

That's an awesome puddle you found!

Any chance of seeing her at the next B4B? Me thinks this Saturday is the first. I have to check

Where did she come from? How many miles on her?

Details man Details!

Toffee Brown is such a cool color on a Beetle. You don't see very many of them. It's awesome that you now have 2 Beetles!:)
Yep, Cup is still around. I need time to decompress from being constantly under the hood, at AutoZone getting her codes read, and occupying a great deal of my time. She's a 15 year old car, so it's all good...I ain't mad at her:heart:

Debbie, Chino came to me at the perfect time. My budget is incredibly tight, and I couldn't splurge and get a '15 or a 2.0t beetle. Chino was a reasonably priced beetle: 33.7k miles for $12,988, plus I got an extended warranty. Chino was perfection for my situation; a dependable, affordable beetle.

I know you'll get a Beetle soon, Debbie. You of all people deserve one dear :)

The chocolate M&M is an awesome motif and idea...never thought of that :p.

Here's the Details:
Purchased: Friday 7/24
Dealership: AutoMatch USA- found em via Cars-dot-com.

Interesting fact: AutoMatch is owned by Camping World. Yes, the Camping World that sponsors the NASCAR circuit. Thier objective is to have an AutoMatch USA in the cities that have a Camping World dealership. Their inventory is very impressive. It's not a Beach Blvd. Automotive or a March Motors. I'd say they're comparable to CarMax or one of those dealerships close to a new car dealership

She was purchased with 33.7K on the clock.
*2.5L engine
*Auto trans
*your standard beetle accoutrements. The radio is bluetooth, with aux in and iPod in.
*Black interior, which really sold me with the toffee brown. Has this faux Carbon Fiber treatment- nice look:bigthumb:
*Heritage wheels with turbine covers
*There's a ding in the pass. side C-pillar and the roof(was in the CarFax). They must've lived on a Golf Course:pinch:. Anyway, that's probably why she sold for under 13,000. I have a buddy that can do the paintless dent removal on the dings and Chino will be golden :cool:

And that's the details.

As for Saturday, I'm not sure.
Our church has a tentatively scheduled activity to be held on the first Saturday of each month. I'll know Thursday if it's concrete or not. If it's concrete, sadly, my future attendance will be sparse.
