Well, it's approaching a year since I got my NB. *whew, time flies* I thought I'd upload a few new pics since I've replaced a few parts for cosmetics.

This car (if it has ESP?) is perhaps the perfect example of what a Tdi can be: safe, stylish (great color and a shape that's holding up well), with great fuel economy.

Oh, and the ability to tow. Tdi Nirvana right there. I <3 your car.

Very nice car, I like the color...just not sure I could live with it everyday. Silver is a little more my style as my car already stands out enough as is. The green TDI badge goes well with the orange too.

If you're looking for interior mods, you should contact Aaron (Boraparts) and see if he still has any leather New Beetle steering wheels with the orange stitching.

Thanks for the kudos. I love driving it...maybe because I've had to drive an auto for a while now. I've been keeping my eye on interior mods that have orange accents (I really don't want too much orange), but a steering wheel cover would be cool..I almost got a Hello Kitty one, but that interest lasted about a day. LOL I actually like silver or platinum grey alot, but since two of our cars are silver and so were two previous ones, I decided on louder...and the beetle was the style for it. I havent had a chance to test in in the snow and may not beable to this year...it's been a consistent 50 degrees here. I do have the CRV as a back up though, it's like a little wartank through pretty deep snow (once I got rid of the original crappy tires).

I have become quite fond of the yellow color, it's my wifes favorite color, so I've taken a liking many things including the new beetle. One could follow me home as you say!.

Thanks! I claybar'd it several months ago since there was something on it that felt like pollen or sap. I can't remember the wax, but after I bought it, I read that it wasn't one of the 'better ones'. lol. It has held up pretty well, but I'll probably redo it in a couple of months just before summer hits.

Claybar. Was it easy to use? I've always just used wax & a dual action buffer. You've got a nice deep shine going on there.

Way to go,
Dave

I used to work in a bodyshop as a detailer for about 2 years before actually working on the accident victims themselves (GM dealership). Using a clay bar isn't really hard but it does take a little time. Mothers, Meguire's, and I think Turtle Wax has Clay Bar Kits. I got the Meguire's kit and it comes with a clay bar, detail spray for the clay bar lubricant, a microfiber towel, and a small bottle of their Cleaner Wax, also includes instructions, just remember to always use that detail spray, you never want to use the clay bar on a dry surface. Before you start, clean the car real good, scrub all the bugs off, tree sap, road grim, etc. Once the car is dry, feel your paint, it will probably feel rough. Use the clay bar over the entire car, from top working down of course just as washing it, once you are done and wiped off any remaining spray on the car, feel the paint again and it should feel pretty smooth. Put a coat of wax on there, whether you use your own or the one that comes in the kit and that car will be as smooth as glass...actually, smoother than that lol. Like I said, it will take a little time, but the results are amazing. Have Fun!
