I am new to the Beetle and have recently purchased a '98 2.0L, stick with 67K miles. It is a fun, zippy little custom job. I hope to learn the in and outs of this thing and may be meet some locals her in sunny AZ.
Welcome to the family! arty: That's really low miles for a 98! Be sure to post some pics of your NB, we love pics! You should be able to find tons of useful information here, if you run into any problems, there's most likely a fix, or somebody who knows what to do.
