      I think I will be.
      Though I will be waiting until the LED/Xenons are available.

      Yes. Spring/Summer 2012. Probably pretty close to loaded.

      I'm long over due for a new car and this might be it once there are used ones around. I got a 98 in 2000 to avoid the crazy price inflation.

      1999 1.8T Beetle, 2009 2.5 Rabbit/Golf
      06-11-2011 05:22 AM #6
      I intend on getting one when my Rabbit is paid off. I have a 2009 Rabbit with 22000 miles on it. I am hoping to get about 10000 from a private buyer when it is paid off in about a year. That should make for a good down payment so that my monthlys aren't much higher than they are now.
      Engine and software mods should be around pretty quick for this car due to the fact that is shares engine platforms with several other models. 2.5L five pot, 2.0FSI, and the 2.0TDI. I will be looking to get the FSI model. I like the five cylinder that's in the rabbit, but it seems like the aftermarket forgot all about us rabbit owners. As far as I know the only way to turbo this car is to piece it all together yourself and hope someone can tune it for you. Or call C2 motorsports and pay 5000 dollars to have a 235 HP car. I'm not ragging on C2. They had a turbo kit for this car almost as soon as it hit the market. I just don't see any stick or crank upgrades for this car yet and that is where VW locked up all the ponies. If you can make 350HP with a non-FSI 1.8T then you should be able to get at least 400 to 450HP with the 2.5. So I will just give in and convert to the FSI.

      The girlfriend is considering it. But the lack of HIDs at launch is lame.

      Is this a hatchback? Doesn't look like it.

      If I didn't like my Golf so much I'd trade it in for this. My sister was looking into this car too but she wants a special edition color. Her last new car was a '01 new beetle isotope green turbo.

      I'll get one eventually- hoping to get a TDI.

      I'll probably do like i did for my 2000 nb- buy it used with a good chunk of it's warranty left.

      Think I might!

      I love my DD 2k8 Jetta but I think I need one of these instead.

      Yep. I'm thinking Denim Blue, 2.5 gas with cloth seats. I would prefer a manual transmission. I may want retro wheels, too. I may consider the Mid-grade Beetle 2.5 IF I can still get cloth seating. I don't like leatherette. I have leatherette in my 2007 Passat and in the summertime, the seat is about 140 degrees when I first get into the car!

      Waiting to see a R version with dsg and hopefully awd.

      I'm seriously interested but I have to see it for myself. It can't feel too cramped when I sit in it and it has to be easy to get in and out without any major back twisting and dropping. A lot of the small cars seem to be made for someone small and young who can crawl and twist with a 20 something flexibility. My PT has been a good fit for the last 6 years but it's time for a new car for me.
      I would like the Turbo but will probably get the 2.5 with sunroof and a high trim level.

      Nice to see you over here! I'm on the org as Pushing Fifty! For whatever reason, the Tex wouldn't let me change my user name to fiftysomething when I hit the half-century mark a couple of years back. I 've also thought about waiting until there are used '12's or even 13's out there, but I don't know if I can wait that long!
