I bought this 2013 Beetle TDI on 02/08 for my wife as a surprise. She loves the car. She could not believe the pick up of the diesel motor and she really likes the DSG trans. She was skeptical at first having suffered 8 years of driving a 1984 Mercedes W123 diesel with 80hp. She gave up a 250hp Saab 9-3SS Aero for this but was a willing convert after 5 minutes behind the wheel.
