I used to have a 98 New beetle. that was like 8-10 years ago.

Now I am back, picked up a 2005 NBC 1.8T with 75000 miles. Mechanically sound, but interior is in 1/10 shape and convertible top is all ragged out. Time to fix bunch of stuff.

Just wanted to drop in and say hello~~

Interior pictures:

Things to do:
Replace Driver Side Door lock actuator
Glue cracks in the door panel
Fix SRS light
Replace Truck lock actuator
Timing belt & accessory replacement.

long way to go to make it perfect.
Because interior is shot to crap, I might have to get some creative ideas.

You're the perfect owner to bring this neglected NBC back. So wonderful you found it, it really needed you!

Welcome back. My wife really wanted an Aquarius Blue convertible but we had to settle with a silver one with a black interior. Ours needs a lot of love in the cleaning department. I did replace the timing belt as well as a malfunctioning fan in the engine compartment but I got a good price because of these issues. Ours is a 2004 GLS with the 1.8L Turbo and the 5 speed manual. It only has 72K miles on it. So far, we love our NB!
