Hi everybody. I have lurked on NB.org for a while, actually long before I even got a New Beetle, but I noticed I got "tagged" by another New Beetle owner when I arrived at my car yesterday after work. :) So I guess it is time to introduce myself.

My name is Brendan, I live in central Ohio, and I bought my 2005 New Beetle TDI last year and have loved every minute of owning it. I am not new to VW's, I have always been interested in them ever since I was very young, I can remember a couple of family members owning Beetles and I think one of my Aunts had a VW Fox for a while. I am also a big "gearhead" and have always loved and tinkered with cars. I worked for VW for a few years and that is when I really started getting interested in them, my first VW was a 1984 Scirocco. I then "downgraded" to a 1981 Scirocco S, and that is my project car that will receive a TDI swap. I have also had an Audi Coupe Quattro which I recently sold, and I will probably sell the Corrado as well once it is put back together. I wanted a TDI daily driver for a long time, and my choices were limited considering that I wanted a 2-door 5-speed TDI. I had a 2002 Golf TDI lined up, agreed to purchase it, and the seller backed out last minute, thankfully I found the Beetle though, I think I made the right choice. :) I do plan on modifying it slightly but nothing much beyond basic power and suspension/braking upgrades. I have already added a gauge pod and boost/oil press/oil temp gauges. Here is a pic of it when I first brought her home:



It was a fun trip bringing her home. I flew out to Indiana and drove her back. Great first bonding experience. :) The previous owner was super nice too.

I am a member of a lot of other VW groups, like OhioVW, TDIClub, Central Ohio TDI owners group, Scirocco.org, Central Ohio Audi club... probably a few others, lol!

So thanks for having me here, it should be fun.

Brendan

Welcome to the Org. This is going to sound creepy, but was your car tagged by "kennasVWsunshine" while parked in what appears to be a parking ramp? If so you were #8 on her list. :) She's been tagging beetles for the last two weeks. Don't be a stranger, check back often. Lots going on.

Thanks for the welcome everybody!

Yes, it was Kenna. Apparently we both work at the same place. :)

Glad to be here.

That's what she was saying. She said, if you like, you can friend her on fb.
