Hey all! I am a former "87 cabriolet owner… I am embarking of my lifelong quest to be a beetle owner!! I will be getting a new beetle convertible in the next couple months and have been researching for awhile. It is all a little overwhelming!! My hubs is finally giving in and is onboard with me getting a New NB!! However with all the engine sizes trims, etc i can't make up my mind. I LOVE the r-series but want to stay in the price range of around 24K. There are some new 2013's to be found and with the 2015 coming soon maybe the price will go down…. I don't like the wheels on the 1.8's. I am also torn between the toffee brown and denim blue. I thought this forum might help Any suggestions are appreciated.
