My name is Chuck and I am the proud owner of a 2001 New Beetle GLX Sport 1.8T 5-spd. Before Saturday, I had never driven a car with a manual transmission. On Sunday I took it out and had a blast. It's pretty darned fast, but I think I want to make it just a tad bit faster. It came with a decent aftermarket head unit, but I would like to replace the speakers some time in the near future. The car did not come with an owners manual, so learning how to use the accessories has been a small challenge. I've been browsing the forums for a few days now and already feel that I've learned alot. I'm looking forward to many more years with this great automobile.
