I have wanted a New Beetle Turbo for a long time. I pulled into work the other day and there she was sitting in the back of the lot waiting for me. I work for a VW dealer and I am a VW advocate. I have a MK2 Jetta, Mk4 Jetta VR6 and an 02 Eurovan. I picked up a super clean Jeep Cherokee from work for a daily driver but I just never loved it like my VW's. When I saw this Beetle sitting in the lot I couldn't act fast enough.

It is a 2004 turbo with 70k and is in almost new condition. I took ownership and started the important modifications immediately. Unitronic Stage 1+ flash, replaced the emblems with the blue accessory ones, VW accessory pedals and dead pedal & VW iPod adaptor. I have a VW accessory Turbo S body kit that I have been holding onto for years that will be going on soon. Then the suspension, wheels and exhaust will soon follow. I like to keep my VW's looking mostly factory with a little of my own touches. It has been a week now and I cant keep the smile off my face. I love my New Beetle!



Here are some of my other VW's

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I am actually the Parts Manager which is even better, I get all the good deals first :).

Loving the Beetle! My other VW's are getting jealous. I think I may have to road trip the Eurovan soon.

I would have to say the Beetle is bringing the bigger smile right now.
My daughter usually drives the Jetta. Although that car handles like a dream with the H&R's and the Bilstein shocks and the GLI Recaros. Still the Beetle is new and I cant seem to park it :)
Both are automatic so they lose a little of the fun points but this way the whole fam can drive and enjoy.
