We don't have the 1.6L in the North American spec New Beetles but I did acquire the UK spec Haynes #3798 service manual and for the 1.6L it lists the Volkswagen part # 101000033A and the typical aftermarket part # PFR6Q.

NGK (6458) PFR6Q Laser Platinum Spark Plug

To save money, typically getting the NGK plug vs. the VW badged version; will save you money, online is normally cheaper but you might try places in the UK like eurocarparts.co.uk, which seems very a popular and have good locations all over (from what I hear).

I hope this helps! :)

PS: if you don't have it already; I highly recommend the Haynes VW Beetle service manual, it is affordable and from what I have seen, is a good repair manual to refer to. :goodjob:

Earlier 2.0L engine codes; used to use Bosch plugs but the 1.8T's always used NGK.

Looking online with your engine code; the genuine vw badged spark plugs, look like Bosch branded plugs. VW part # 101000062AB. You should be fine with Bosch or the equivelent in NGK.
