There is just no comparison on the 2.0L vs. our new 2.5L. We really wanted a 1.8T when we bought the 2.0L, but premium fuels costs (before they went through the roof) stopped us. Since the 2.5L used Regular we took the plunge. The 2.5L really rounds out the New Beetle and makes it feel like a sports car for us now. Before the 2.0L was fun and handled great and had decent acceleration, but now...WOW!
