Hey guys. Just introducing myself. Picked up an 02 NB GLS, 5 speed 2.0 for pretty cheap a week ago. Beetle forum over at vortex doesn't seem to have much going on over there and stumbled on this one, found it to be a good resource. Never owned a beetle until now. I also have an mk3 and mk4 GTI.

The beetle has 165k miles and isn't in the best condition on the exterior or interior really. Paint needs a lot of TLC but is manageable. Engine runs strong (for a 2.slow anyways) which is what matters though.

Some pictures



Spark plugs I removed from the car



Wheel bearing/hub seized to the rotor



Euro switch installed

Anyways, hope to stick around for a while. Anyone here from Texas?

Well what took you so long? We've been waiting for you :D
Mighty glad to have you aboard buddy. Congrats on landing the 2.0. That and the 5-speed, you have a good little package there. Keep the pics and updates coming.

Thanks for the welcomes everybody.
Howdy, and it's really a 2.G0.
Haha, well compared to my VR and 1.8t, not so much. I do enjoy the fuel economy so far though.

Hm so it isn't "marlin blue"? That was the closest looking one I saw when I was trying to find out what color it was.

Edit: looking at batik blue and marlin blue next to each other, they almost look identical. I'll double check the paint code
