      Curious if the Beetle handles as well as the current GTI. Love the style though!

      The Turbo is close to GTI feel, but softer. VW wants the GTI to always be their best handler. But since the Beetle is based on the Golf/GTI, many have considered swapping in the GTI bits to more closely mimic the handling.

      The Launch Edition Turbo Beetle which comes with Sport Suspension/19" wheel package actually pulls more G's than a GTI on the skid pad*. But, the Beetle is less aerodynamic. As a result, they tie in the slalom.

      * per Cars.com which compiles test results from multiple sources

If I was in the market for a new car, it'd be hard to resist a Denim blue with white Circles. It'd also need a set of white walls for the tires.

      I did find the Circles and Denim blue on the options list here, but the Design trim (where Denim blue and Circles are available) is only available for the 1.2 TSI and 2.0 TSI, not for the 1.6 TDI.

      People would think I'm gay, if I drove that, but whatever.

      wow, the white looks great! my options were silver, white, or yellow...naturally I chose silver (that's what my '02 Turbo S was), but that white looks pretty snazzy!

      I like the look better without the rings.
      Next Project are the 15 inch Golf Steelies. I have a set of Baby Moon Smoothy Wheel covers coming. Plan on putting BF Goodrich T/A tires on the 15s.

      PS I dont know what the list price is over there in the USA , but this car lists with no options , at £21,500 , and with the options this car had (Fender Sounds , Pan Roof , Full Leather , RNS315 , Xenon Lights) was getting close to £27,000 , which is about $42,000 USD.

      Very nice!

      I'm unclear how VW is still charging $30K for a car missing a $1000 option? Shouldn't this car be like $29 or even $28K?
