Beautiful!!!!!!!!!! I've not noticed the 2012's with a black roof-have I been under a rock or is yours a special edition?

Actually...the pics with the completely black roof were photoshopped for me to help me decide if I am having it done.

Whoa! Are we going to see a full on customized build thread like you have done with your past New Beetles? Good to hear you back in the VW scene by the way; SO, how are you enjoying your Snap-On tools (I am on Garage Journal as well with the "billymade" user name)! Just a way of reminder; I met you years ago at the Roswell New Beetle show, with your amazing convertible! :)

I would enjoy hearing; about your initial impressions of the "Beetle" and what plans you may have for the future of your new car! :)

Oops! :) I didn't realize that. For the record, I think it's awesome!

So far I rally like this new Beetle. I am amazed at the power available from this 2.0 T motor. The extra room inside the car is especially nice for fat guys like me!

I am not really planning to do too much to this car. I will probably add an exhaust soon...but that will be about all except for little things here and there. I am mainly still a BMW guy these days, but I just had to have one of these to zip around in. I'll try to post up any mods I do here.

And...I am loving all my new Snap On tools. I actually have started to use them a little bit... LOL!

Yea. I think I am going to do it soon. I just hate having to leave the car at a body shop for a few days.

Nice looking 2012. I like the big tv on the wall too.
Thanks. The ceiling camera feeds that TV which helps me to line up on the lift without the help of anyone else.

Love your car!! Do you mind me asking where you bought your seat covers? I might be interested in something like that when my new Beetle comes in. :)

I don't think I've ever seen a cleaner garage!
Thank you. There is a video that shows the whole thing if you want to waste a few minutes of your time.

You should totally black out the roof! It'll look great :) :goodjob:

I'm envious of your clean garage..I have to be cautious to fit 5 cars into an over cramped
4-car garage.

Sweet ride - have you 'smoked' the light by yourself ? I like it
