Hello everyone. I have joined up hoping to get some answers for my 2000 2L auto. I have plenty of VW's but this one is just a daily driver to work and back or to the shops - I only work 5kms from home so I wont use the diesel Touareg - the kombis will get stolen as I don't have secure parking while at work. I will post elsewhere about my issues.

Yes it is. My Touareg has it's own mechanic but the others all get looked after by someone that specialises in VW's and Porsches. My black beetle is the latest addition and it has the dreaded sudden cut out happening. No codes have been thrown so we replaced the fuel pump - it seemed to work until yesterday when it did it to me again. It worked for about 4 weeks. It will need to go back again. :cautious:

Hmm, the cut out issues: can be a number of things (bad crank sensor, dirty throttle body, etc ignition or fueling being the most common culprit); let us know, what the problem, ends up being.

Got my beetle back yesterday - my mechanic replaced the relay for the fuel pump - seems to have done the trick for now - I didn't get the chance to ask him if he had a code.

I love a bit of bling on my cars. A while back I found these headlight covers at an auction sale and they were too cheap to pass up - I think they had had a reserve of $10 AUD (which was about $7 US but is now about 42 cents ;) ) but no one had bid on them so the reserve was down to zero and I put $12 on them and got them!!

Next up I would really like these steering wheel spoke covers from Bugs Go Go but they are a bit on the expensive side - with the exchange rate they come in at $110 AUD without postage!!! Does anyone else know where to get them?

You might look into repainting your old ones with "chrome (looking) paint" or wrap them with chrome looking adhesive wrap, check with your local auto parts store. That would be a less expensive option; here in the USA, the "turbo s" new beetle; had special dimpled aluminum versions, hard to find but they are out there.
