Love the Beetle handle in the Coffee mug design.
Thanks mang:cool:
I've been eye-balling Chino for the past few weeks, hoping she'd be there when I was ready. When I first saw her online, the color of coffee came to mind, hence the name Chino.

Cool Beans!

Sounds like a great deal Al!

The 2.5 is a strong and bullet proof engine, and the Automatics are a lot better now. Sure everyone talks about how you have to have a standard, but this is 2015. If all the Formula 1 teams run automatic DSGs as well as Lamborghini and Bugatti it's good enough for me.

Sounds like research paid off. Just was hoping you didn't get it from "Peppermint Patty"!

Again, Congrats. I know you will love her for a long time.

You know me...love my puddle pics:D. All the rain we've been having, was screaming for puddle pics. Chino came along just in time.

Chino's photo shoot was this past Saturday. I was gonna post them up later that day, but I've been busy. Being that the Org-a-palooza is officially under way, the timing of posting Her thread is perfect:D

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?
Thank ya! Pretty stoked still!

So....the list of mods eh? Well,i'm not planning a ton of mods like I did on Cup.
Y'all stop laughing...i mean it :p
As far as the interior- i'm very pleased with the black interior- It really took the brown exterior over the top for me, so that's staying. Really dig the brown; thought I'd never stray away from the Black/green motif, which is still my favorite.

So for mods, the first thing on the list is a spoiler....must have a spoiler.
I'm also considering striping. I like the dual rally strips with the thin pin strip border. Not sure on the strip color yet. Might need a photoshop to get the right inspiriation.

To finish out the cosmetic mod list, will be wheels.

Performance wise, still not sure on this one. Don't wanna do anything crazy. Chino is my daily and i'm happy with the 2.5L and trans setup. If I did anything it mignt be a CAI. I'm still learning the ways of the 2.5, and don't know the ins and outs.

So that's about it for the moment. I'm sure something will come to mind as time marches on.

So here's the wheel options i'm looking at.
I'd like to color match the spokes with Chinos paint, or paint/powdercoat them a dark brown. The wheel lip will remain polished/chrome.

My favorites are the best from 1-5. What say you all?

Option one is my favorite. The black really pops against the brown. And I might be a little biased, but I love the look of black rims with chrome trim.
I'm leaning on 1 & 2 as well, hence them on top of the list.
And yes the black really makes it pop- just as it does with her interior. So whatever wheel I get, I must decide if I'm gonna leave em black or paint them dark brown. They're still a ways down the road, so I have plenty of time.

cool bug none of the less. Can't wait to see more
It's kinda surreal. Been driving Cup for 14 years. Still very cool to be in this sweet ride. It's like I'm a new org member all over again; finding parts jobbers, looking at mod/styling ideas...it's a whole new adventure. I'm digging it :cool:

I know the feeling that's why I can't wait until I get mine don't get me wrong I love black velvet, but I've been thinking about getting a second beetle for quite a while now I already got a name for her too.

And here's a shot of her interior. Again, the black really sets off the toffee brown, and really sold me.
Well, that went well :lol:

Let's try this again.
Interior shots...
