Picked it up yesterday ((2008 Volkswagen New Beetle Coupe 2dr Auto S PZEV Hatchback)) here in wonderful Central Pa. The wife always wanted the New Beetle so I finally went on a mission to locate her a clean certified Beetle. Well, found a very clean 08 with 37k, leather, in Platinum Grey, with a good bit of the factory warranty still in tacked. She loves it, she did make me come out last night and hear a tiny squeak under the car when she was driving it, I pushed on the side and definitely a squeak under the car. I'll be checking that out tonight, also I need a owners manual and spare key(dealer wants $250 for the spare key):mad:. I'll be putting a "BRA" in the front because there are some tiny stone hits already.

Nice NB! Yeah, I just recently had to buy the extra remote, it killed my "pocket money" for the week!
You can find the owners manuals on ebay. If no luck, go to Faxonautoliterature.com. I also put a bra on mine for the same reason. Only my'99 came with a multitude of rock chips on the hood. Covered it up nicely without having to repaint the hood, AND looks really cool! :D

Thx for the info, I called the wife to have her look eerywhere for the Owner Manual and she found it under the seat,,,my bad for missing it. I have the Bra on it's way, and like you, it'll cover the already dinged up front plus look great.

I had to add a second key and remote when I bought mine. Got it thru an automotive locksmith for about $185. Mine's an '05. I think I read where the later models do require purchase from a Dealer however. You can go here for more information and possibly other options, but regardless, you do need a spare, no key will become very expense.
