Hello enthusiastic Beetle TDI tuners :D. 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 :cool:, but at least something faster than stock :rolleyes:.

Let me know,

Hector.

1999 New Beetle
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.

Mine is stock other than upgrading the radio (rns315) and installing fog lights. I am seriously considering tuning it at 120k, but I’m 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 done quite a bit to my '13 Beetle, still planning on more, next up are GTB2260 turbo and CP3 pump. The IRS is also on my list if i can ever find the parts near me. So far I've done Full Deletes, S3 intercooler, CR170 turbo, SB stage 2 clutch, fluid damper, cts rubber engine mounts, Pedders coilovers, poly front suspension bushings, clutch bleeder block, sigma 6 shifter

Sorry for the last response it has been awhile. I am going to do the IRS swap. There is a Passat CC nearby at a junkyard. I was looking into lighter knuckles as well. found this information https://www.golfmk6.com/forums/inde...y-ghost-zricketys-2010-autobahn.294710/page-2
I signed up for an autocross event nearby going to run the car 100% stock and then go from there.
