Hey guys just got my neused Beetle 1999 red 2.0 needs a lot of work. But the price was right. $500.00 it needs coil pack a/c charged and headliner rear fenders have the clearcoat comming off but i think i got a great deal. Used to have several of the old style air cooled bugs and even raced them off road simple motors to work with a pair of pliers screwdrivers and a crescent wrench and i would go anywhere. Thanks for all your help in advance i know i will be relying on the great wisdom and expertise here.

If you plan on fixing your new beetle yourself; these two "tools" should help you get the job done:

or downloadable version ebahn manual

Are you privy to your beetle's maintenance history, i.e. has the timing belt/ tensioner/ t-stat/water pump/ been replaced?

Also to piggy back on Toad's comments, you're in a good area of orgers (newbeetle.org members):
MichelleRoze
Chephron
Wilky- lives in Dacula
Freaky Beetle

Some of these orgers might be of a help to you AND they're closer than you think.

My sister in-law lives in Lawrenceville and my wife and I try to make it up there as much as possible.



I hope you get your bug back to speed soon and hope to see you involved in the GA new beetle scene.

Great news Ted:bigthumb: Glad to hear the TB/WP has been done- one less egg to fry right?

And the welcome mat is pretty big around here. The GA group of orgers are very cool and travel extremely well.

BTW, The wife-unit and I should be up that way for thanksgiving weekend. It would be cool to meet up with you and the rest of the gang. Maybe we can do a Sonic meet or something.

Press him for the second key and fob if you don't have it already. That is the most expensive single thing you might have to deal with.

Btw, I have a spare '98-'08 Bentley DVD-ROM Repair Manual. Unopened, unregistered, $80 shipped. Legal, not pirated, just requires loading and registering with eBahn, no additional costs or fees.
