      Put the new seats with suede black center on the bug. Feel much better support than leather R seats.

      I didn't notice, is this front wheel or AWD? Nicely done swap man, glad to see it running.

      It's front wheel drive. Either AWD or Turbo will be on next year.

      Some shots today after raining.


      8mm. spacers help the rear looks better.




      Caractere front grille is replaced by R32 lower front grille for better cold air flow.

      Dreaming for the next thing up.

      Thank you, sir.

      I think I really get bored today. I just came back from taking night shots in the new building near my house. Taking pictures all day long but I'm not pro though. hahaha.

      For anyone who pmed me for the interior shots. Cluster is km/h and has km unit. Enjoy but keep in mind, I'm not photographer and don't know how to do photoshop.

      Looks absolutely sick

      How good is visibility of the lupo cluster through the beetle steering wheel?

      The visibility is perfect from driver's height like me. The Sporter CS seat installed on OEM recaro slider is little higher than R32 seat. The steering wheel level is not at the top end but almost. I think Lupo steering wheel is same size as New beetle one. I see everything clearly from my position.

      A lot of time was devoted to making sure the visibility of the cluster was good for Karn.

      That's true. We were very careful and spent a lot of time on cluster face angle and the level of the cover to fit in the best position to driver's vision and look from outside.

      Along 7 months work credit is all for you, buddy.

      THANK YOU!

      How have you been, man?! I really made the right decision on HIDs and the gauges, never been upset. I still look at your xenon diagram sometimes for my HID foglights.

      Thank you. umm. If I calculated since this project began, I could have bought brand new Honda Fit already. I don't want to add a part of when it was 1.8T, too.
      My goodness, I don't do sounds system.

      Thank you! I'd love to see turbo on it next year if nothing is changed. It's tough decision either turbo it or 4 motion.

      Thank you, man. The installation was extremely hard to find the perfect position for cluster to sit at right angle to driver and we had to do fiberglass from original Lupo GTI cluster cover to match the slope on the beetle dash. The black front cover was really hard to make since we had to make it fill up all curve of speedo and tachometer and an analog clock.

      Wow, it really looks like you spared no expense, and it shows. Simply amaging. If you ever decide to sell that set up please let me know.

      I'm not sure if I would sell this set up. I could make a new one for you but I need to search for a new cluster set up.

      If you found any spots on your car this weekend sorry I couldn't stop drooling over it. I had the pg TS in the show but I was hanging around your car more then mine. I have been dreaming of a R32 swap....Sweeeet Ride. Love it.

      Wow. That looks like a tight fit . I assume you had no hood clearance issues?

      No, I don't have any hood clearance issue. Hood is closed fine. There is a tiny gap between intake manifold corner and bumper edge. Engine touches it a bit in reverse but there is no problem.

      just wondering how much did you spent on the entire swap?
      i assume it wont be cheaper than a brand new beetle.

      Only the engine and tranny swap was not like getting a brand new NB, but if adding suspension bushings refresh, sway bars, coilovers, wheels, all interior like seats, Lupo GTI cluster, and custom made dash and center console adding together would took $ out of my pocket close buying to a brand new beetle.

      I actually save a lot of money because my buddy helped me to get it done
      The car was at the RAI Motorsport boot at Dubs at the beach. (not the boot behind the car)
