First of all, I love my Final Edition convertible. However, the sales staff didn't tell me much about it before giving me the keys and a figurative slap on the butt to put me on my way. The stuff in the trunk was a real mystery, especially the windscreen. I thought the "ESP" button would make my radio speak Spanish. They told me nothing about how the brakes work, so I thought they were "grabbing" at first. I figured out how to make it smoother and then read in the manual how they work. The XM radio produced the "No Sat" message, which I've learned means that the XM module (in the trunk, I think) is either DOA or misconnected. I couldn't find the iPod connector until I accidently stumbled across it in the glove box. I was always an easy grader, so I'll give the staff a D- for orientation. One salesman told me that the emergency brake had to be on to put the top down. Anyway, I love the car and will learn about it as I go.

HI there! I know our NB's are YEARS apart, but I will tell you this, if it weren't for this site I don't know what I would have done or still do to learn about the NB. Having been a real hands on owner of a vintage '65 VW for 15 years (and still am) , I am use to fixing and doing!
You will do well to get on the forums, ask questions, any questions no matrter how stupid you may think they are. Someone will have the answer. The members on this site are the best.

Welcome and congratulations on your NB! It's a beauty! :D

Welcome, We have a NB Final Edition also. We have the hard top. Our sales guy was great, spent about an hour with my wife going over everything. If you have any questions just ask. Our sales guy recommended leave the ESP on all the time, just don't mess with that button once it is on.
What number did you get?


This board loves pictures...please post some.
