Brought this home today. My FIL bought another 1998 TDI and let this one sit. It needs a lot of TLC, it has sat for the last 7 months. Havent had it for a day and already familar with battery removal. I was told it has upgraded injectors, but is otherwise stock.

Although it is my wife's car, I do want to swap wheels, and dosome other things to it.

I am so very happy to see that you are bringing this TDI New Beetle back to life. Heck, with those miles, it's just getting broke in! :)



Keep us up to date with the progress. We love to see them get better and better! :clap:

We've been going back and forth about the car for almost a month. It was offered, then we decided not to take it. This weekend her dad called and told us to come get it. Some people give thier homes to puppies, kittens or children, I'm a sucker for a neglected car sitting in the weeds.

I'll look into those. I looked up BRM replicas, but Allison said no. I just have to steer her away from those daisy wheels.

TDI with a manual trans, hello 55mpg! Great car. Change the timing belt/water pump/tensioner/idlers yesterday.

I'm a fan of Take 5 wheels as found on some NB Sport models.
