      This is my 3rd VW Beetle and my previous one, a 2006 New Beetle has frames around the windows, but with the pinch-protection, I experienced the upsy-downsy issue. It is a tension thing and not...

      Lookin' good Tania! What did you use for lowering? At first I thought they were bags until you mentioned the rear had threads.

      Since it is not a Turbo, I was wondering why/how the rear has...

      Mario,

      Did you check your spare and the tow-pulls. Maybe those are what's rattling in your trunk. I have not experienced any rattle. Don't wanna go down the complaints road again though...

      The only issues I encountered were the window issues (resolved by VW) and the windshield cracking. Both of which appear to be fairly common problems, at least for the initial batch of 2012s.
