      Never driven the Beetle, but after 100k kms in a 2012 R I can assure you that it is most certainly not a fragile car.

      The gas pedal gets stepped hard regularly.

      Mine does this already. Annoying that it takes a minute or two to boot up and allow me to switch to the radio if I want to.

      That being said, I've never been able to get the SD card to work...

      Late March of 2012 for me.

      91k kms, or about 56k miles.

      A few minor headaches, but overall it's amazing.

      Clutch slave cylinder
