Hi there, I've been a vw fan almost all my life, since 1969, aircooled that is, and now I found an opportunity with a 2000 beetle. I have a very interesting project I would like to take on. I don't know of anyone but if there is somebody out there that has taken this challenge please let me know. The project is to get rid off the engine electronics and others electronics that are real nice when new, but a pain when they start going bad, in other words bring her down to basics. Taking advantage of some new features, but features that are easy to fix or diagnose. I know it's not going to be easy, but I'm going for it.
