Story to come, but FINALLY I am in possession of my NEW CAR! I disappoint everyone by replacing my yellow 2001 New Beetle with... a yellow 2006 New Beetle.

where's the pic of the "HEY YO! DRIVER! - DO NOT SUBMERGE!" sticker on the dashboard?

(probably aftermarket installation) ;-)

Just out of curiousity, what else did you consider getting?

Dude, thank goodness you got rid of that impractical and hideous 2001 Solar Yellow Beetle.

That's the thread with the car suggestions, but I can't find the story of the car's watery demise anywhere.

In reality, I will wager CRZ never seriously considered anything but the Beetle.

pie, is the check engine light still on on your T&C? if so, try disconnecting the battery and turn on the headlights to totally drain the system of juice. Leave for 5 fimutes and reconnect the battery. i used to work at a dealership where this is really what the mechanics did at least a third of a time; just a system re-boot. Either that or all they would have to do is connect the computer to the system and the light would go off. Sometimes it's just a default factory setting that goes off around 60,000-80,000 miles to get you to bring it in for a "check-up" (check-up = give us your cash).
Nice car, Z. I really don't mind those Beetles at all. It's amazing how much headroom is in those things for a tall guy like myself. (6'-3")

Here's hoping this edition turns out a bit better than the last one, or at the very least, works out better than my car.



Last night, my brake pedal decided it also controlled my parking lights. Electrical short FOR THE WIN!

I'm interested in what you're finding you like/dislike about the new model vs. the old model.

I know they're not radically different from a functionality standpoint, but...

I see Burnsville STILL hasn't put up their new building they were talking about when I bought my Bug there three years ago...
