    Newbie wanting wheels and tires

    Actually I, of course, started by saying that "I need a wheel lock key for my '06 Beetle TDI." Then they explained that there was more than one, which I didn't know. They explained this without attempting to make themselves look all knowing and me an idiot. And they took their time and patience...

    Newbie wanting wheels and tires

    Being that I am new to having a new beetle, I was unaware that there were several different locks for my year. And your snarky reply wasn't the least bit helpful. Maybe next time spare the newbie the sarcastic reply and simply try to inform them instead of trying to show your superiority. I DID...

    The tires are just Cooper's so they are probably safe too. And I agree about the locks. Once had a lock strand me beside the road. Not fun!

    They charge per wheel and I think that will make them too expensive for my taste.

    Dang varmits!!!

    We bought an '06 Beetle TDI (first VW TDI) with 83K on it. Drove it to Florida and back from West Central Indiana with no problems. We knew it needed the timing belt changed and all maintenance (looked like PO just drove it and ignored maintenance). Had to park it outside of the garage while we...

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    I replaced the glow plugs in our 88K TDI Beetle. Then checked the codes and got a PO 183 and PO 727. It sat for a few weeks as we did other projects and now will not start. I was HOPING it was the glow plugs. Now I'm guessing engine speed sensor or bad wires.

    Just completed our first trip

    Over the years, we have driven almost every variation of this trip we could think of. Going back over these routes are like visiting old friends.

    We took a few. We always take pics at lake Toho in St Cloud of each vehicle we have taken down. My Grandmother lived in St Cloud, Fl for 22 years and we (my wife and I and eventually our son) went down every April and October. We have been married going on 48 years and we have made the trip over...
