Hello!
My name's Greg and my girlfriend just got a 99 beetle from her brother in law. it's in pretty rough shape as it was salvaged and rebuilt but it's only temp for her to drive to school and then get a new car in 3 years. However I'm having trouble with the car so I'm hoping to get some advice from you guys and looking forward to learning a lot about this car!
If anything for now, because it's been de-badged, how can I tell exactly what model it is. I know the engine says 2.0 but that's all i can tell. Has 4 disc breaks, hand roller windows, and alloy rims. seems like it has extras but also basics, kinda odd.
Thanks in advance guys. have a great day!

Welcome Greg. Glad you found us.

Sounds like you've got the GL model. Still a great little beetle. Hope you get the little feller back in good shape.

Filling out your user profile is one of your best tools. It helps us network with you better. A helping hand might be close by & your profile info will help.

All the best Greg. Hope to meet you and the G/F down the road.

You have a rare New Beetle. I've never even seen one with hand-crank windows! :)

The VW 2.0 is a hearty, capable engine. I hope you can get it all worked out.

Welcome to the Org, :wave2: and Welcome to the New Beetle! :party:

Crank windows came on the early GL cars. Mine had them =) Hubby's '01 Jetta TDI has them too (also a GL)

WELCOME to newbeetle.org :)
Post some interior/exterior pix so we can help you identify your beetle.
You can call your local VW dealers parts department with your vin number too. From the vin number they can at least tell you what your beetle was ORIGINALLY.

Best of luck with your new beetle:D

Huuuummmm?? What city/ state are you in?
