Hello! I'm new! I just bought a 2000 GLS New Beetle to replace my 97 Ford Probe which is falling apart. I have wanted a beetle since before I could drive, and I have browsed these forums for a long time dreaming of the day I'd find one I could afford to buy. Well...long story short I got a green one for $4000 with 62K miles in excellent condition (except that the green paint had faded to white in areas) from a private seller. (In my area for the same year and HIGHER miles, they were selling on lots for $7600- $9995!). Then a friend of my mom's painted it pink for me for $600! He is a professional and gave me a really sweet deal! I love my car! Here are some pictures:

Critics, I love the color, soft pink, right? I love the softer pink colors. I love the wheels too. I like having the VW on them too. I have that on mine also. I love the VW emblem.

It is lovely - both cars posted on the thread are - you had a great deal there. Cars in the UK are much more £££. The paint definately looks factory fitted and lots of fun! Enjoy!!

LOVE the pink cars! I wanted a pink New Beetle. I called the dealership and asked if they were going to make a pink one. The salesman said, "God, I hope not!" Can you beleive that?! I am SO GLAD that you made yours pink!
