Hello to all!!
I just bought my first brand new car two days ago, a 2016 convertible bug, denim limited edition. I LOVE IT!!! :):):)
But, I need new comfy seats. I want to keep the cute denim seats for when I sell it. I just do not know what seats are compatible. I need soft seats that will help my back. I didn't realize how uncomfortable the new car seats would be for me. :confused: My commute to my teaching job is over an hour....
Can anyone please help me??
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Interesting you mentioned the lack of comfortable seats in the latest beetle! When the 2012 first came out, my local VW dealer invited me to a "Beetle party", to check out the latest model and when I sat in it, the first thing I noticed were how the seats were no where near as supportive as my 2002 New Beetle Turbo S has. As far as I know; the design hasn't seemed to have changed since then, maybe other owners of the 2012+ Beetle's can confirm this. The earlier New Beetle; had compatible seat tracks with the Jetta/Golf, so some people swapped their seats from the GTI/GLI/R models. I don't know if this is still the case with the current models. Worst case scenario, you could find a high end seat like Recaro or Corneau; that would support your back better.

VW really dropped the ball on the seats; the New Beetle sport seats are amazing and very adjustable. I also struggle with a bad back; so, I feel your pain! :(
