Default What mods are you running?

Hello enthusiastic Beetle TDI tuners . I was wondering what mods are you running on your Beetles? How do you like them or dislike them? How is MPG with mods? Trying to get an idea to mod mine as well. I am not looking for a 12-second car , but at least something faster than stock .

Let me know,

Hector.

When we first got our New Beetle, it was like driving a generator! Now it is fun to drive but we have had it for over 12 years so lots of time to tweak it.

It is great for towing our little trailer around and still gets 30 mpg while doing that. Otherwise it is probably better on fuel now compared to when we got it.

See the list below for most of the things that we have done.

This forum is for 2012+ Beetles. You are posting in the wrong forum. 1999 has nothing to do with these.

Mine is stock other than upgrading the radio (rns315) and installing fog lights. I am seriously considering tuning it at 120k, but Iím only at 91k now, so plenty of time for research.

PB_NB I like your New Beetle. I really miss mine. I wanted to tow a small trailer with it. The LED Headlights look awesome.

06Blueceetletdi. What fog light wiring harness are you running? How was the install? My friend gave me his foglights off of his Beetle just no wiring harness.

I am also looking into modding the Beetle more. It seems similar to the Golf, I have been looking into golf suspension setups. Still debating on converting my rear beam to IRS. My friend also gave me partial IRS parts. He went AWD on his Beetle.

I have the vw oem retrofit harness, exact length, uses the fuse block, classy install. The only warning is that in my case one fuse was not where vw said it was in the instructions, so i had to remove and reinstall one fuse at a time until the tail lights went out.
