Hi! . I'm new here but I've been reading the forums for about a month. I decided to buy a bug when I first saw one. I was ten. From that moment on no other car grabbed me the way they do. For my first car I had a Ford Focus SE, not a bad car but it was starting to give me issues and I was tired of it. I am now a proud owner of a gorgeous blue 1999 vw bug with 50,000 miles; after much looking and some persuading. But not all is well with this little gem . It's got some issues, as is to be expected with a twelve year old car but that's for another thread. For now, hello from a m*******.
