Hi, I am the owner of a 1998 TDI New Beetle (Blinkie). I received the car when I was sixteen as a gift from my father when I got my license. I have been driving it for two years and have been loving every mile. Blinkie is nearing 150,000 miles and, unfortunately, is starting to show it's age. I hope to keep the car for as long as I live because we bought the car brand new when I was two and I have bonded with it over the sixteen year period. Hopefully I can make that dream a reality with the knowledge of other members. :)

Make sure the timing belt service is done on time (80k first time, then every100k with the correct kit). If it us an automatic, have the transmission serviced with VW spec fluid every 40k. That tdi will last a LONG time! I'm getting 47 city 51 hwy on my 2000 tdi. Love it!
