      ...and don't forget, less car.

      Before I purchased my 2012, I was considering a Mini (shhhh). But like you said, less equip for more money. I wasn't a fan of the seat fabric (looked like cheap...

      If I recall correctly, you should either remove the bottom larger door panel or upper panel to remove and re-install the side panels without incident. I had to do the panel removal process and...

      Can't you get those same Bosch plugs somewhere else cheaper? Don't have the part number handy to check.

      Hi Tresser,

      Sorry you are having difficulty fitting comfortable in the 2012+ Beetle. Here are the dimensions I came up with, with respect to your photo.

      Well, that explains it then. With the IRS, you can get lower on coil-overs. Too bad for me. Still waiting on rear lowering options. :(
