Finally?! I'm more than fine being the only one I like attention!
I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=30.809630,-81.580757
Finally saw one! Wife got hers on Sept 25 last year and we have not seen another one, other than on the dealers lot. I drive on I 5 north of Portland Oregon almost every day and I finnaly saw one , on a transport truck heading south to the Portland area. It was covered by the white wrap like all the others in the load. It was the only beetle on the truck. Will I ever see one driven by an actual owner?
Bill has a theory that certain parts of these here United States have some cities with
'cracks' that lead to different dimensions of space, and if Beetles are swallowed up
into them, all of us living in our dimension will never know it. He claims that, 'they are
there.....it's just that we can't see them.' All this was extensively reported in episodes
of Star Trek and we know their scientific knowledge is beyond reproach. This would
make much more sense than Bill's initial theory that certain Beetles have been fitted
with "Klingon-like' cloaking devices which I always found to be a bit 'over the top'.
A few days ago, I saw 2 Beetles in the same day... that's a record!!!
But still only 5 since October '11.
Still have not seen Toffee Brown.
My '01 NB is 1k short of 200,000 miles. It's been flashing P0420 (CAT Converter) every few weeks. I keep telling my better half that 0420 signifies April 20th... the day the NB reincarnates into a B12.

I do have acquaintances in England and Holland.... Hmmmmmm.....
1964 &1968 Ghias. 2003, 2007, 2009, and FINALLY 2012 Beetles!
even find a listing in Holland for Volkswagen. Did see a 2009 CC listed on Ebay that
had black rear headrests but couldn't tell if they were leather or leatherette? They are 'low
hugging' but look to be more substantial and a bit higher in height than mine but still way
better than the balloons. The Vin for this 2009 (Cornsilk & Black interior) car was as follows:
WVWML93C09E543559. Side note: I do believe the leatherette is in the cars that are in Mexico.
Finally saw my 1st Beetle on the road this week - a Denim Blue 2.5 headed North on I-15 in Provo.
But, I expect to see more as our dealers have doubled inventory this past week. Things are definitely ramping up.
2012 Beetle 2.0 TSI/DSG White Launch Edition
2012 A3 2.0 TDI/DSG White S-Line Premium
note that Ireland offers various models of the Beetle and they did list a VW Customer Care
Phone Number for calls from abroad. Since Bill assures me that they speak English there,
perhaps you can call the number and inquire about black leatherette rear headrests?
Tel +353 1 619 3604
Since they have a lot of Golf models offered, and in the event the Beetles aren't ready for
sale yet, you might want to ask about rear headrests from the Golfs.

to breakout and fill that void. I'm sure Bill can get you 'booked' at the Mormon Tabernacle in
Salt Lake City. With 'Moody Blues' music playing in the background, all you would need to do
is give a little insight to your fans as to what makes Lady Ghia 'tick'. I'm sure there would be
enough money, after expenses, to afford those rear headrests you want.
Was just out cruising and saw a beautiful Red 2.5 w/Sunroof. He had the same fancy wheels that are on Moody's 2.5. Funny thing was he had Michigan plates that said Manufacture and when I pulled up next to him he stated very mater of factly that he was driving it and doing an article for a magazine.
Before I could ask any other questions he quickly sped away as if disinterested in talking to an actual owner.
Oh well, it was nice to see a red one up close.....my dealer has never had one.
