Sorry if this is the wrong section - I tried to post it in the news section but it wouldn't let me.


Under wraps:











The inside felt like it was a much more quality product than the current Bugs. All the plastics are nice and soft and it seems put together very well. I love the steering wheel and the dials.


Bottom of the doors had weird tabs on them:


Which went in here when the door was closed:


I shall keep pens and business cards in this one I think:




Ipod connection in here:




Boot lid:


Press this:


And voila:


The boot is considerably bigger than on the current ones. Golf umbrellas will go in no problem! In fact, I actually got in and sat in it! :D


Under the boot carpet is a puncture repair kit. I like that they give you a jack, but no wheel :lol:


It looks as if you may be able to get a space saver as an option? I'll be putting in a full size spare and losing a bit of boot space as I can't use a space saver on tests.

1st aid:


Triangle:


Dials looked nice:


Space in the back is very similar to the old model:


Little cubby hole in the door card:

Arm rest opens up and flips back:


Cup holders that you can actually get a standard pop bottle in!


To get into the fuel flap you press on it and it pops up (the car being locked activates a pin which prevents people from being able to open it and steal fuel):


Cap has a pin:


Pin goes into holder:


How handy! :D Very neat and simple idea.

Mirror switch has a separate bit for heating, so hopefully no burning them out:


Ariel on boot lid:


Spoiler:


Exhaust:




Engine:




Headlights are much easier to get to:




Colour inside front badge:


Headlights:


Massive sidelight bulbs!



And lastly, Herbie and I had a nose at Stonehenge on the way home:







Hope this helps :)



Overall, I think the Bug looks much better in real life than it does in the pics. It's much more in proportion in real life. Most things feel of a higher quality than they did on the current style Bug - especially the interior.

All in all, I loved it and I'm gutted that I have to wait a year to be able to get my grubby mitts on one of my own!
